Today is the theme from the original Battlestar Galactica which ran for one season in 1978. I have commented on the original series and its re-imagined version. The theme is from the two-part episode Lost Planet of the Gods where they find Kobol. It is one of the best episodes of the old series and shows the promise of the series (later to be dashed by poor script writing and cliché shows). The theme is upbeat and hopeful unlike the one from the re-imagined series.
