Mission Galactica: The Cyclon Attack - 27 x 40 Movie Poster - Australian Style A
This is an original poster for the Australian release of Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack in 1978. Many of the original episodes of Battlestar Galactica were paired together to form feature films for overseas release. This is a poster from one such release.
Between 1978 and 1980, episodes were edited into three feature length films. The first film, Battlestar Galactica, was an edited version of the pilot "Saga of a Star World", featuring some differences from the original televised episodes, including the death of Baltar. It was released in cinemas in Canada, Australia and Europe before its American TV premiere and, in 1979, it was released theatrically in the US. The second film, Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack, was a re-edited version of the episodes "The Living Legend" and "Fire in Space", which also differed from the broadcast versions, omitting several scenes from both episodes. In 1979, it was released theatrically in Europe and Japan. The third film, Conquest of the Earth, was a similar edit, though this time its source episodes were from Galactica 1980. It was also released theatrically, in 1981, in Europe and Australia.
