A chimpanzee was inside the Muffit daggit robot costume to make the “robot” move. Over the course of the series, three chimps were used.

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, which Glen A. Larson also produced, re-used props from this series.


Narrator (opening credits): There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe… with tribes of humans… who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians… or the Toltecs… or the Mayans. Some believe there may yet be brothers of man… who even now fight to survive – somewhere beyond the heavens!

Lucifer: Anything is possible, but the odds are astronomically against it.

Commander Adama: (closing credits) Fleeing from the Cylon Tyranny, the last battlestar Galactica leads a ragtag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest… a shining planet known as Earth.
