After its initial cancellation, fan outcry led to BATTLESTAR GALACTICA being restored to TV screens--albeit in revamped form. Set 30 years after the original series, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA 1980 finds the star cruiser of the title finally reaching the glimmering oasis of Earth. Unfortunately, they've also led their dreaded enemies, the robotic Cyclons, to the planet. In order to prepare 1980s-era earthlings for intergalactic battle and save the human race from destruction, Captain Troy (Kent McCord) and Lieutenant Dillon (Barry Van Dyke) are sent down to meet with the planet's scientists and jump-start their primitive technology. Along the way, they get in some interesting culture clashes with bikers, police, and an intrepid TV anchor (Robyn Douglass). Though the premise is altered, the series is still full of the laser battles and deep-space sequences that made the original so popular with legions of fans. Features the complete first series.

Yep, Episode 10 "The Return of Starbuck"

Great price but this series was terrible as they drastically cut the budgets so a lot of the episodes were set on earth, plus they had a load of annoying kids in the show.

You do keep expecting the General Lee to drive past at any moment.
