ILM CLASSIC IMAGE: WHEN 'STAR WARS' MET 'GALACTICA'
1978- the amazing time when the epic sci-fi/fantasy universes of the two GL's - George Lucas and Glen Larson - met via the model shop of the Van Nuys ILM facility, with STAR WARS having been completed, and the majority of the crew now working on the pilot episode/opening two-parters of the subsequent BATTLESTAR GALACTICA TV series (model builder Jon Erland can be seen in the background). Note the original SW Star Destroyer model on one side of the photo, and a Colonial Viper and the Galactica itself on the other.
