You hit the nail on the head. We have had our hopes built up so many times to have them dashed. I've gotten to the point that when talk about Galactica surfaces, I don't even let it bother me.

I can totally understand this view, especially when the fandom has been jerked around by the cancellation of the Fox pilot (DeSanto), then an abrupt 180 to the reimagination and ignoring of original fandom (us). Then to see the on-again, off again promise of a new movie… and with all the teasing (such as the basic premise of the PS2/XBox BG game, etc.). Colonial Fan Force, etc. It's been a long ride.

Having said that, I still remain optimistic and check these boards often (and contribute when I can) and check online for new movie info.

I can't help it, I LOVE Battlestar Galactica (the original, classic series) and always will….

Right there with ya!

I'll give anything new a chance, but my heart belongs to TOS Galactica.:salute:
THE BEST SPACE OPERA EVER.

Mushies all around!:rotf:

Totally, on one and three. I however do not have any optimism. H'Wood is full of boray astrums who think they are semi-divine visionaries, who see and know all, while we fans are the Great Unwashed, grovelling at the foot of Olympus, for any scrap they happen to TOS our way.
Hhrummphhff!

Don, by your words right there, the last "image" of BSG would be the 2003 mini and series.

I do not want that.

I want them to make this, good or bad, as I said. If it's good, great. if not, then let the last version be the last version, rather than the 2003 stuff to be the last version.

I have a feeling that, with this particular writer and with Glen more involved, we will see something closer to the original rather than the 2003 version.

Will it be good? Who knows. But it WON'T be the 2003 version.

THAT, my friend, is my point. If it's bad, THEN maybe BSG can be left alone, as you want it left alone.

I get what you are saying. Either do really well or fail miserably so that is the end of it and it reverts to a fan piece.

I still want option A. Just my druthers.

Kind of like not having your last meal before hanging. If you don't, then the meal before that one becomes your last meal.

jewels, option "A" is what I want as well ;)

Senmut, nice analogy :LOL:

I'm with Darrell on this...

This particular project has been a long time coming and we've all wondered what a big budget film version would look like. It's about time we found out. I'll go see it in whatever form it takes. If it's good, then I'll be pleasantly surprised. If it's not, it'll just be another in a long line of failed remakes. In the long run, no film or TV series holds my reason for living in the balance...

That could even be the cliffhanger: did they or didn't they survive?

From Universal's viewpoint that's a "new" story. From Glen's point: It might be that untold Pegasus story he's been tasting since Lloyd Bridges swaggered onto the Pegasus' deck. For a new generation: it's a spaceship story in the middle of a hotly fought war. Do you think something of that order could work?

One slight problem. Good movie plotline but, without the Battlestar Galactica in the film. It wouldn't be a Battlestar Galactica movie.

Questions:
Would you support/watch the movie if:

1. It is a reboot with the original characters played by different actors (Adama, Apollo, Starbuck, Athena, Baltar, etc.) in the vein of the new Star Trek films

2. It is a reimagination that blends (not sure how that would work) both the original series and the new series

3. It is a new story featuring elements of the original series, such as Jewels referred to in her post on the Pegasus

4. It is a continuation of the original series, set 30 years later, with cameo-to-minor roles for Richard Hatch (Apollo), Dirk Benedict (Starbuck), Herb Jefferson (Boomer), Terry Carter (Tigh), with the main thrust being the younger actors

Has anyone noticed that anytime there is major Star Wars news, that "Battlestar Galactica movie news" pops up again and again?

Yes I have and it is always quite amusing to me!

Well, you do know that Battlestar is a rip-off of Star Wars, right (at least, that's what Lucas thought)….:rotf:

Lucas thinks that EVERYTHING is a rip-off of Star Wars (to include Star Trek).:rotf::rotf::rotf:

Come on, everyone knows George Lucas invented science fiction, right? Kinda like Al Gore invented the internet, Apple invented the mouse, and Marconi invented the radio.

I read somewhere that star trek was inspired by Forbidden Planet.

Senmut May 2nd, 2014 12:48 AM

Lucas invented that, too? Wow!

1. I would watch. 2. Glen Larson could sell the Galactica:1980 rights to Ron Moore to do an updated TV series that starts after the New York City street scenes with Head Six and Head Gaius Baltar. 3. It would be a Battlestar Pegasus movie unless it takes place after the events of the BSG episode 'The Living Legend'. 4. I would watch.

I wasn't kidding though, folks. Seriously... everytime something major happens in the Star Wars universe, the BG movie thing pops up.

On a side note, go to the Gallery and check this out - http://www.colonialfleets.com/galler...s.php?cat_id=8

Look at the year of that. Then tell me what movie came out around that time.

When DeSanto/Singer were connected to the BG project in 2002/2003, guess what sequel had just came out?

In 2005, when DeSanto was still being pushed to do a movie and team up with Larson (just rumors at the time, much like now... didn't really "take off" until 2009 with Singer back involved and DeSanto out), guess what trilogy had its third part in theaters?
