Battlestar Galactica Terminology

This is a list of terms in Galactica 1980. Some of these terms are specific to the Galactica 1980 television series, and not to the Original Series from which it was spun-off, although there may be overlap from the Original Series into this listing.

This list also includes Earth terms that the Colonials have apparently never encountered before.

Earth terms[edit]

The following are Earth terms that the Colonials do not immediately understand, thus having to learn about them through experience or by using their wrist computron.

Colonial terms[edit]

These are terms directly relating to Galactica 1980, some of which are based from the Original Series. For terms from that series, please refer to List of terms (TOS).
