Maren Jensen, Dirk Benedict, Richard Hatch, and Lorne Greene sit by one of the "advanced computers" used in the 1978 series Battlestar Galactica.

In one scene, Lorne Greene is seen dictating into a microphone, and the words appeared on the computer screen. Families of deaf children swamped ABC with desperate pleas to release this technology onto the market.

ABC had to tell them it was a trick: As Greene spoke his lines, the script was merely typed into a normal keyboard off-screen.
