Here’s today’s flashback: From Starlog September 1979, David Gerrold (of Tribble fame) compares Star Trek to Space:1999 and Battlestar Galactica. Guess who wins? 😉 I remember watching S-1999 and Battlestar... and yeah, they definitely weren’t Trek, but they did fill my need to watch bright, shiny people in the future. Gerrold rightly points out the absurdity of the 1999 premise, which I agree with, but it was still fun to watch. However, 1999 doesn’t hold up as well today as TOS, and of course Battlestar Galactica was remade into a wonderfully gritty, intense reboot.
