"Galactica 1980" was poorly received during its run and was cancelled after only ten episodes, many of which were multi-part stories.

The show's final episode shown was "The Return of Starbuck" (which featured a guest appearance by Dirk Benedict from the original series).

Glen A. Larson even began to develop a sequel to this episode, but the series was cancelled during production of episode 11, "The Day They Kidnapped Cleopatra", which remained unfinished.
