Battlestar Galactica refers to a "re-imagined" science fiction universe debuting in 2003 and based on the 1970s Universal Studios movie and television franchise of the same name. It is not simply a remake, but a new direction taken from the same premise, analogous to a "reboot" in comic books. The term "re-imagining" has been used to describe the show since its early promotion to differentiate it from the original 1978 series.
In 1978, Mattel released a handheld electronic game called Battlestar Galactica Space Alert based on the original Battlestar Galactica movie and television series.
