Original wall phone used in the production of the 2003 re-imagined science fiction series Battlestar Galactica. This update of the late-1970s programme takes a decidedly darker tone as what’s left of humankind struggles for survival against the robot Cylons, who have killed millions. The Galactica, led by William Adama, protects a patched-together fleet of civilians – led by de facto president Laura Roslin – in search of a mythical planet called Earth.
This phone was used as set dressing abroad the Galactica and can be seen in various spots such as corridors, the bridge and sickbay. This piece is hollow and made of plastic with an attached resin phone. The main body is painted a metallic blue with faux buttons and decals, and the phone is attached via a plastic phone cord. The entire body has been heavily weathered by the production to match the esthetic of the Galactica which was an old warship. This piece was originally sold in the studio sanctioned auctions and remains in excellent, production used condition.
