Cover art for Saga of a Fugitive Fleet depicting Noah Hathaway, Laurette Spang, Terry Carter, Jack Stauffer, Anne Lockhart and Sarah Rush (L-R).

Saga of a Fugitive Fleet is a one-off audio drama written, directed and produced by Daniel Earnshaw and released by Explore Multimedia on 4 December 2000. It features the voice talents of a bulk of 1978 Battlestar Galactica's performers, including Terry Carter (Tigh), Laurette Spang (Cassiopeia), Jack Stauffer (Bojay), Noah Hathaway (Boxey), Anne Lockhart (Sheba) and Sarah Rush (Rigel). Utilized are previously recorded audio by performers Lorne Greene (Adama), John Colicos (Baltar) and Richard Hatch (Apollo), derived from extant works.

Ostensively a version of the Original Series with the "serial numbers" filed off, Saga features voice talents of various Original Series' performers while eschewing the use of copyrighted terms and direct references to Original Series tales.

Additional performers lending their talents include Robyn Douglass (Galactica 1980), Sonja Kristina, Ken Bones (Doctor Who), John Guilor, John Clegg and Alistair Lock (of Big Finish Productions).

Genesis

According to writer-producer Daniel Earnshaw, Saga had been designed to feature a larger involvement of Richard Hatch as co-writer and co-producer, but his involvement never came to fruition due to Hatch's passing in 2017.[1]
