Nominal How the hell did this show end anyway? They reached modern day Earth and launched straight into Galactica 1980's magic children?
Bort Pretty much. "Battlestar Galactica" was canceled before they reached earth, then "Galactica 1980" got picked up, with the next generation of protagonists and they found earth.
I was always disappointed that they reached earth in the 20th century, because the vibe of the show had always been that the BSG crew were the inspiration behind legends and religions around the Mediterranean (and Utah).
