Sign the four additional Battlestar Galactica Online Petitions

The four additional Battlestar Galactica Online Petitions are also available for you to sign and show your support for Battlestar Galactica. The Battlestar Galactica Richard Hatch Petition respectfully requests that Richard Hatch make his trailer, "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" available to be shown on the Internet. Richard Hatch -IS- listening! If you agree with the petition, then sign the petition to make your voice heard. The Battlestar Galactica Sci-Fi Management Petition requests a change in management at the Sci-Fi Channel. The petition urges the Sci-Fi Channel to focus more on sci-fi programming, including Battlestar Galactica, instead of broadcasting non sci-fi television shows, or axing sci-fi shows that have done well, such as Lexx and Farscape. The Battlestar Galactica Save Starbuck Petition is a humorous petition, but for a serious matter: Ron Moore's new Battlestar Galactica mini-series script for the Sci-Fi Channel calls for Starbuck to become a female! Starbuck, one of the original series' most popular characters, becomes Kara "Starbuck" Thrace in the new mini-series, and "Starbuck" is merely her radio call sign. If you want Starbuck to remain a male and make your voice heard, be sure to sign the Battlestar Galactica Save Starbuck Petition. Finally, the Battlestar Galactica No Re-Imagining Petition is a succinct petition that supports Richard Hatch's "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" continuation concept over the Ron Moore re-imagining felgercarb. You can make a difference, so be sure to sign the four additional petitions, after you sign the five primary petitions!

Big News Coming!

Atlantiaviper posted an interesting report at the Sci-Fi Channel BBoard. Atlantiaviper is reported/rumored to be an insider involved with the new mini-series. Atlantiaviper writes: "They are ecstatic over at Universal today, and when I say they're ecstatic, I mean they're downright giddy over there. My source couldn't talk openly this morning, but I managed to get enough to know that they've just made another casting coup for Galactica. The words 'Oscar caliber' and 'people will sit up and take notice' were used. How did they get this person? 'They thought the script was one of the best they'd read in years.' The production itself is still going before the cameras at the end of March and is battling to stay on budget -- even at $14-16 million, they're struggling. A Sharon Valerii has been cast as well -- Kelly Hu. Interestingly, Hu is also appearing in X-Men 2, produced by none other than Tom DeSanto."
