-Ronald D. Moore, Battlestar Galactica: The Official Companion, p.155-
There's so much to love and appreciate in both versions of the series, the first from its original creator Glen A. Larson to Ronald D. Moore's reimagined work. They are both exceptional top flight science fiction sagas.
I'm not sure why it has to be one or the other for some people.
For me, these are two exciting, unique, throughtful, thoroughly realized and colored series worthy of your reflections. They are both refreshingly different.
This writer never tires of returning to both. How lucky we are to have them. And of course the latter wouldn't have existed without that original.
