    Lorne Greene (Adama) and Herbert Jefferson Jr. (Boomer) are the only regular cast members from the original Battlestar Galactica (1978) to appear in this sequel series. As a last ditch effort to raise ratings, the producers brought back Dirk Benedict as Starbuck for one episode.

    Goof (anachronisms): At the beginning of the series, the Galactica arrives at Earth in the year 1980. It is said by Adama that their voyage has taken 30 years which means that the events of Battlestar Galactica (1978) took place around 1950 in Earth time. However, at the very end of the original series (in the episode "The Hand of God"), the Galactica receives a television transmission that shows the 1969 Apollo moon landing. Since the fleet's journey to Earth had only started a few months prior, it means that the events of Battlestar Galactica (1978) must have taken place at least in the late 1960s Earth time. This would also account for Adama not appearing much older in the sequel, as a 30 year gap would have meant the returning character would be 80 to 90 years old.

While the concept was dropped, it was said to inspire series Staffer Donald P Bellisario to create the TV Series Quantum Leap.
