Battlestar Galactica makes the list, twice:
'Battlestar Galactica' (New)
The new 'Battlestar Galactica' just barely missed the number 1 spot due to its newbie status in the sci-fi genre. However, this is easily on track to becoming Number 1 due to its great writing and a wonderful vision by executive producer Ronald D. Moore. The show is a modern-day remake of its 1970s predecessory but features more compelling story plots, a darker tone and surprising twists and turns in almost every episode.
'Battlestar Galactica' (Original)
The 1978 series 'Battlestar Galactica' is a fantastic story of 12 colonies destroyed by a race of mechanized beings called Cylons, who are bent on destroying mankind. Commander Adama, played by the late Lorne Green, leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet across the galaxy in search of the lost 13th tribe, who settled on a planet called Earth. The great cast included Dirk Benedict as Starbuck and Richard Hatch as Apollo.
Stargate Atlantis makes #26, Firefly made #17, Stargate SG-1 made #6, Babylon 5 #5, and the Original Star Trek tops the list at #1.
