Battlestar Galactica is a franchise of science fiction television series and films. The franchise started with a 1978 TV show and was followed by a series of book adaptations, original novels, comic books and video games. A reimagined miniseries aired in 2003, and a regular television series aired from 2004 to 2009. Although the first television series was cancelled after only two seasons, it maintained a cult following, of sorts, and fostered several other series, movies, and electronic games. Parker Brothers produced this board game, Battlestar Galactica, in 1978 to coincide with the original series.
