LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- March 3, 2003 -- Galacticon, Inc. today announced GALACTICON 2003, a premiere fan-based event which celebrates the 25th anniversary (1978-2003) of the Original "Battlestar Galactica" television series. The event will bring together original television show participants and fans together for a weekend of activities, discussions, commemorations and special surprises.

The event is scheduled for October 24-26, 2003 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
