Battlestar Galactica Timeline

What’s on the Battlestar Galactica Timeline?

This is the Battlestar Galactica timeline that includes both the original series and the 2003 reboot in chronological order. While the original series and the reboot do not intermingle from a canon standpoint, I like to think they exist in the same universe because of the line, “All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.” Because of that line, I assume that the original BSG is the “before” referenced, taking place thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of years before the reboot. Of course, that is all part of my head canon, and nothing official. Regardless, this timeline is a great place to start if you want to watch all of the Galactica media in order.

And if you liked this timeline, we recommend you check out some of the others. The Star Trek timeline for example. Furthermore, if you found anything on this timeline that needs improving, let us know. If you see something that needs to be added, taken away, or changed, we want to know about it. You can do this on our contact page. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you enjoy this Battlestar Galactica timeline.
