I have been searching for the Battlestar Galactica programs or data files
since I got my 4052 and 4054 in 2000.
We may have to recreate them from the couple of screenshots on the web :)
The closeup screenshots on the TV shows may have been from 4010 series
Tektronix monitors. I haven't seen any other info on the web from folks
actually involved in helping during the taping of those shows.
I created a program in 2000 in honor of Battlestar Galactica titled
Vipers. That program is posted on the Tek 4051 Emulator github site.
Here is a link to my post on vcfed - which has a screenshot from running it
on the emulator - since I had not repaired my 4052 or 4054 until a month or
Here is a link showing running Vipers on my repaired 4054:
The random number printout at the bottom of the screen - showed my 4054 had
just been upgraded to a 4054A from an upgrade kit I bought in 2000 off EBAY
but had not installed. :)
