Great news for the 35th Anniversary. It looks like the original theatrical version of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA's Saga of a Star World is to get a Blu-ray release coming very soon.

According to various forums, the classic series was apparently given a very basic HD remastering for DVD back in 2004, but there's no news as to whether the Blu-ray will be from a new transfer or what the audio soundtrack will be comprised of. Hopefully seeing its cash potential, UNIVERSAL will push the boat out on this quality-wise after the recent re-mastered success of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's lavish film transfers for CBS PARAMOUNT. No news on a UK/Europe release yet, either.

More details as and when...

With thanks to Dreams and Visions Press' John Scoleri for the heads-up on this, and the above image!

  1. Loved the crispness of the live action portions. The effects sadly still had the matting lines and faint boxes around the ships as they moved. It's understandable since it was filmed specifically for television, but folks who expect better cinema effects are disappointed.
