Many yarhens ago I built a car called a Tri-Magnum. It's not a kit car. You build it from plans. It has nothing to do with BSG but it looks very spacey so it figures someone who like one would like the other. Just recently I was watching Galactica 1980 for the first time since it was new (when I was 9-10 yahrens old). First off I would have to say the show is not as bad as its reputation might suggest. It's no BSG but I still find it quite enjoyable.
In the episode "The Super Scouts" Dillon and Troy pilot a shuttle with the Galactica kids to earth. The shuttle looks the same as it did in the original series from the outside (re-used old footage of course) but the interior is completely different. Instead of the Viper style joystick the shuttle has two flight yokes. I recognized right away that it is exactly the same yoke I used in my Tri-Magnum. In both cases it actually comes from a Cesna 180. I bought a pair of them at an airplane swap meet. Just thought it was a funny connection.
