Jay Tamminga wrote in to let us know that the art on the Canadian Battlestar Galactica movie poster and novel, wasn't done by Ralph McQuarrie, but is a carefully repainted image by Jack Gaughan, with brighter colors and more details added. Jack Gaughan was a well known scifi book cover painter (he did the covers and hand-lettered title pages of The Lord of the Rings books). Why it was repainted and Ralph McQuarrie's original image wasn't used, is not known.
