Commander Adama

All right! It's me again, Scifi nut and indulvidoul. Who is Commander Adama? He is the key role in Battlestar Galactica, a Sci-fi TV series in US. But..., which one is? Right or left? Both of them are. The left is Commander Adama, played by Edward James Olmos, in the reimagining Battlestar Galactica, aired on Scifi Channel now. The right, performed by Lorne Greene, died in 1987, is in the original series, aired in 1978. What's the difference between there two Adama? In the original series, Adama is the leader of Colony Caprica, a member of 12 coloniel council, and the C.O. of Battlestar Galactica. On the other hand, in the original series, Adama is a politician, also a military leader. In the reimagining version, he is just only a commanding officier of Battlestar Galactica. After Cylon destroyed the 12 colonies, Commander Adama leads the rag fleet in search of the 13th colony, call Earth. Although there are many differences between these two version of Adama, they are both the critical character in this TV series. Without Commader Adama, it is unbearable.
