New BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Comic Unites the Original Series and the Reboot

New BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Comic Unites the Original Series and the Reboot

“All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again.” That quote from the 2003 Battlestar Galactica reboot series seemed like a meta reference to the original series from 1978. And there were other callbacks to the past over the course of the show, including the classic model Cylons, the main theme from the original series, and even Richard Hatch‘s return to the franchise as Tom Zarek. But now, the Battlestar Galactica comics will unite both series as the respective crews come into conflict with each other.

Dynamite has announced a new miniseries entitled BSG vs. BSG, which will be written by Peter David with an art team to be announced later. At this point, we only know a few details about the story, and they involve the creation of the Cylons. Humanity built the instruments of their destruction in the reboot series. However, the Cylons of the original series were created by a reptilian race. Kali, the last surviving member of that race, will play a major role in this crossover. However, it’s still unclear how the two timelines will intersect.

We have so many questions about this one. Will the original series Cylons also meet their counterparts? Will Baltar meet his even more over-the-top predecessor? Will the Starbucks buy each other a drink? And can somebody fraking explain why Tom Zarek looks just like an older Apollo from the previous timeline? Aside from the obvious real world explanation, of course.

Dynamite hasn’t announced when BSG vs. BSG #1 will be released, but a 2018 debut seems likely. Perhaps we will learn more at New York Comic Con later this week.

Are you excited to see the two Galactica crews face off against each other? Leave a comment below, so say we all!
