TV Show Intros: Battlestar Galactica (1978)

I think this show has the best theme of any show, before or since!

Battlestar Galactica also had some good themes, but even in my preteen years, the new alien civilization every week was a bit much...but I didn't care as long as they had plenty of space battles in the episodes.

Here is the Wikipedia article on the show:

Battlestar Galactica is an American science fiction television series, produced in 1978 by Glen Larson and starring Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict.

The premise of the series incorporates themes from Chariots of the Gods? and Mormondoctrine, world view and culture.[1] 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.
