Airing in 1978 and 1979, with a brief return in 1980, the original Battlestar Galactica (BSG) television series laid the foundation for a follow-on series of books, games, and reimagined series of television shows chronicling humanity’s struggle to survive after the Twelve Colonies of human civilization were all but wiped out by the treacherous cybernetic Cylons in the attempt to rid the universe of human life. Despite the limited run of the original TV series, BSG has remained a popular franchise among Sci-Fi fans for three-and-a-half decades.
In honor of the 35th anniversary of the original series (TOS), Moebius Models has released a series of kits depicting craft from the 1978 production, with the flagship being Galactica herself.
Unlike prior and disappointing incarnations from other manufacturers of kits depicting the lone surviving battlestar of the Colonial Fleet, Moebius gets this one right on almost all counts. Reportedly having used the restored studio model as a reference, Moebius convincingly captures the size, shape, proportions, details, and subtleties of “Big G” with great effect.
