As a moderator...it would be nice if we could keep this discussion on topic about the BG movie news and not let it degrade into yet another tirade about "old vs new". That discussion's been going since 2003 and its never going to change, so let's move on.

It would be truly awesome if they used the original model, just have to wait and see. With Larson involved I'm hoping the chances the film will have a TOS flavour are good :)

Much as I enjoy what can be achieved with CGI, I still prefer physical models. The skill that went in to making the Galactica is just phenomenal, the picture posted below speaks volumes.

Old 1978 Battlestar TV series and feature film vs New 2014-2017? Battlestar Movie will always be debated. The old vs new war continues.

Things I have learnt since 1982

Floggin' dead 'orses is pointless.

That war is over. There are plenty of left over landmines and sweaty tricky UXBs, between the entrenched positions, but the time for active combat has gone. Time to come out of the jungle.

The opposing POVs are on the public record.

Bitter rants and keystrokes struck in anger won't change what happened, but digging it over will feed the basest instincts of the beast within Fundamentalist Fandom.

If there's no new evidence, wasting time with another circuit of the same old yakkity yakk won't cause the judge to review the sentence..

The line between robust discussion and argument is a fine one. Not all your friends and acquaintances will stay with you when you cross it. People who are alone and wanting to fight with other people generally aren't held in high regard...

Everything comes back around and most of the human conflicts today are continuations of the previous wars that have occurred since time began. As Commander Adama said in War of the Gods "We have always been caught in the conflict between Good and Evil. It will be no different even if we find Earth." As I said THE WAR CONTINUES!

Not between the original and TNS. Anyone posting to start a fight, or try to continue the "war", will be banned. We are allowing moderate discussion of TNS, *BUT*, and I emphasize this, NOT TO START ARGUMENTS OR TO COMPARE THUS CREATING ARGUMENTS.

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

I would go for all of the above but as Star Wars and Rocky has shown that
comebacks are very popular with the moviegoers so I would recommend
having the colonials regain their home worlds and then wipe out the Cylons
so they can never attack again and then go explore the galaxy and deal
with new enemies as they come up like in Star Trek.

^^^ It might indeed be a more uplifting path for BSG to take.

As light-hearted as TOS BSG was compared to NuBSG, having the entirety of the human race experience a "holocaust" of any kind is rather heavy material, in either version. I think many people may be getting fatigued with "darkness" and "grittiness" in their shows. I know I am to an extent.

Perhaps they should take it in a completely different direction after briefly retelling the original story and not dwelling on it as much, or rather, more deeply exploring the profound implications of the "grand plan" that the Beings of Light have set humanity on, and the efforts of Count Iblis to undermine it while executing a "grand plan" of his own for the Cylons. TOS never got the opportunity to explore the rich tapestry that was quietly being woven into the fabric of the plot for various reasons. I think it is now time to do just that!

You must admit, Iblis is a hell of a character! ;)

This plot I like! It gives the producers a chance to bring in new characters and new plot twists instead of rehashing what has already been done. I nominate Alan Rickman for Count Iblis!

I also nominate Benedict Cumberbatch for Count Iblis or the Cylon Imperious Leader.

No thanks..

Rickman would be a better choice.
or Anthony Head

Just a moment. I have it:

Rickman (who can foam at the mouth with the best of them) as Baltar.

Langella (elder statesman, solid, but who can just ooze charm and menace) as Iblis.

I am

Robert Downey,Jr. would make a good Baltar. If he isn't doing an Iron Man or Avengers movie.

Is Cancer Man from XFiles still around? He'd be good.
