The lower court had it right. 

I never even noticed those similarities until reading that article. The're pretty much standard sci-fi tropes. Based on the courts comments it could have been Superman who sued. 

It did it job tho and shut the whole thing down. Clearly they were commited to the concept bringing it back as BSG1980.

Looking at those old-school Cylons remind me of the first con I ever
attended (Pittsburgh Fantasy Film Con ‘78. I was 11. My folks dropped
me off!!). 1st and 2nd Place winners of the costume contest were
incredibly authentic-looking Cylon and Muffett costumes. The Cylon guy
even had the flashing red “eye” effect in his helmet visor!

I just re-watched Jane Seymour's final episode ("Lost Planet of the Gods, Part 2")... it was a gut-punch back then, and still packs a wallop today.  I admit, it gets me every time.  The final scenes are incredibly poignant, simply written and beautifully well-acted by all.

Apparently nobody showed the cover artist the title set-up...?

The cover looks like a loose homage to Howard Chaykin's Star Wars #1 to me.
