Battlestar Galactica (2004): Ronald D. Moore rewrites science fiction

Numerous TV series and films have benefited from this practice, not least a science fiction production with a rather troubled life: Battlestar Galactica. A series, in fact, that has had more than one television existence, but which has become universally known mainly for the 2004 reboot.

Battlestar Galatica's first life dates back to the period when science fiction it seemed to become the driving force behind the film entertainment industry. Thanks to the impact of Star Wars, which with its first chapter had convinced the majors to revive science fiction, giving new life to the other great science fiction saga, Star Trek.

Larson had slipped, who, inspired not a little by the creation of George Lucas, had decided to brush up on his old project, as we told you here.
