The Marvel Galactica series had great potential because comics were better equipped for science fiction stories than television was back in 1978 (unlike today when relatively inexpensive CGI special effects allow television to do sci-fi/fantasy series such as Bablyon 5, Xena, and Hercules that wouldn't have been possible even 10 years earlier). The range of stories in Galactica television series were limited because there was not enough time on a weekly TV schedule to shoot special effects scenes. In comics, artists can easily create entire universes and blow them up at will. This advantage should have led to better stories than what we saw on the television episodes, but overall the TV series was still much better what Marvel gave us. The main problem was the writing. It was consistently average, and too often mediocre. Only 5 issues - #11, 12, 13, 16, and 19 - are above-average.
