The show didn't need the first crappy "reboot", let alone another even
worse one. :-\

The original is how is is meant to be by the person who actually had
the creative talent to make it.

The "reboot" was never meant to be a reboot at all, but was going to be
a "next generation" follow-on to the original show (and was already in
early production as such) ... then talentless hack Moore-Ron and the
management fools got involved and it became the barely recognisable
crap we ended up with that shouldn't even have the same name. :-(

Found more info. Apparently it will be set in the same place as the
Syfy show

From SR
*****

The Battlestar Galactica coming to NBC's new streaming service,
Peacock, will reportedly take place in the same universe as Syfy's
reboot of the classic sci-fi series. The original Battlestar Galatica
show ran on television from 1978 through 1979 when it was canceled by
ABC. In 2004, Syfy rebooted the series and it ran for four seasons
until 2009. This version of Battlestar Galactica also included some
webisodes that take place between seasons, two TV movies (Razer and
The Plan), a web series which also aired on TV as a two hour movie
(Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome), and Caprica, a prequel
spinoff series that didn't make it very far.

In Syfy's Battlestar Galactica, humans live on twelve colonized
planets where they invent a line of robots named Cylons for slave
labor. The Cylons soon rise up and a war breaks out, but eventually
the Cylons retreat and stay away for more the fifty years, until one
day they return disguised as humans. The show follows Commander Adama
(Edward James Olmos), captain of a military space ship Galactica, as
he and his crew try to recover from the surprise attack and
infiltration.

Now, Variety is reporting that the new series being produced by Mr.
Robot writer/director Sam Esmail is set in the same universe as the
2004 Battlestar Galatica reboot. The new comes via writer Ronald D.
Moore, the creator behind the 2004 reboot of the series, who shared
with Variety that Esmail had reached out to tell him "he wanted
to do something in the same universe."

One could argue this makes this Battlestar Galactica series less of a
reboot and more of a continuation or spin-off, but for fans of the
show who have been waiting almost 10 years for more, this might be
splitting hairs. The new series should premiere this year, and it will
be going up on NBC's new streaming platform Peacock, along with a lot
of other new shows in the coming years. For those who are interested
in something else, though, there also a Battlestar Galatica movie
adaptation in the works at Universal, but there have sadly been few
updates on that project.

Battlestar Galactica has a devoted fan base and its 2004 reboot series
received much critical acclaim, for good reason. The cast was strong
both individually and as an ensemble, and the plot twisted in exciting
if sometimes unpopular ways. The show's concepts of hidden enemies,
artificial intelligence, and the complicated relationship we have with
technology make it almost inevitable that Battlestar Galactica would
be revived again someday, and it isn't at all surprising that a new
series would want to play in the same universe as the celebrated Syfy
series.
