Created by Glen Larson and beginning in 1978, Battlestar Galactica keeps on coming back. There have been films, television series, books comics and games all based around a science fiction world thought up by Larson. All productions begin with the same basic idea – a group of 12 human colonies engage in a war with the alien Cylons who want to wipe out the humans. They attack all of the colonies and most of the humans are killed, meaning the survivors flee. One large spaceship, named Battlestar Galactica has survived the attack and they go off in search of a mythical thirteenth colony, Earth.
