With thanks to the Sheba's World website for the image.

Christopher Mills at his hugely popular SPACE 1970 blogsite has got the US Blu-ray release of the theatrical release and is overall very happy with it. Check out the review here: space1970: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (1978) Capsule Blu-ray Review
A helpful source at UNIVERSAL has informed me that UK fans might see the release by the end of the year.

With thanks to Blu-ray.com for the front and back sleeves.

Though the magazine was available in several select magazine chains for a year or so, I didn't really discover that marvellous US sci-fi magazine STARLOG 'till around 1978, and it was happily one that had BATTLESTAR GALACTICA on the cover- the mighty vessel and a trio of Cylon Raiders in combat, patched together in those early design composite days before Photoshop ruled the world. Still, it was good enough to catch my eye, and, regrettably for my dad, his wallet- a special treat from him to me (my eight year old self) working with him at his shop that day!
