Who had "turbo lasers" first, Star Wars or Battlestar Galactica?

Most recently in Star Wars VII, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they mention "turbo laser" turrets, but wasn't the idea of turbo lasers in Battlestar Galactica first?

Given that a laser being turbo is far out enough, it would be really odd two fictional universes come up with the same thing, no? So, with an eyebrow already raised, who is the copycat, the one with Lorne Greene..., again?
