Forty years ago, Battlestar Galactica introduced us to a ragtag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest to find "a shining planet known as Earth". In 2003, nearly twenty-five years later, the Galactica jumped back onto our screens and changed the face of sci-fi with its dark and gritty storytelling.
Bear McCreary's award-winning score takes influences of music from all across the globe and moulds them skilfully into a cohesive whole.
The Passacaglia represents one of three pieces using this particular theme ("Passacaglia", "Allegro" and "The Shape of Things to Come"), and appears for the first time during the episode "Kobol's Last Gleaming".
