Out of Colonial uniform, in her zero-gravity pressure suit lycra, Athena gets to briefly show off her sexy figure, for a scene shot with Dirk Benedict as Starbuck, handled at the start of the series filming, which would then be added to the syndicated three episode versions of Saga of a Star World.

The Cylons make their presence felt once more, this time as the cover stars to the original VHS release of GALACTICA 1980's feature compilation movie Conquest of the Earth. The poster campaigns, of which this one featured some adapted Ralph McQuarrie artwork, were ultimately better than most of the Galactica spin-off's end product!

A distinctive Boray serves the gambling tables at the Carillon Casino- one of the many aliens seen in the pilot episode: Saga of a Star World.
Boray, Ovions and Tylium fuel would get a later mention in the STAR TREK: VOYAGER two-parter Flesh and Blood. Obviously someone in the show's writing staff was a Classic BG fan in his formative years!

The gorgeous Laurette Spang poses for a publicity image as Cassiopeia, the former Socialator (or spiritual healing prostitute!), on the Carillon casino set of Saga of a Star World. After the pilot, the character's unique job position was changed to the more audience friendly position of Med-Tech.
