I think this show has the best theme of any show, before or since!
The premise of the series incorporates themes from Chariots of the Gods? and Mormondoctrine, world view and culture. The show lasted only one season in 1978–1979, but has since developed a cult following and several books have been written continuing the sagas of the characters. After its cancellation, its story was continued in 1980 as Galactica 1980 with Adama, Lieutenant Boomer, now a colonel in the Colonial Service, and Boxey, now called Troy, being the only continuing characters.
