Attention Script Writers!

Darrell Lawrence of 3DGladiators.com has announced a new contest at his Colonial Fleets forum: "Here's a contest for ya, and there may be a prize for the best story *if* enough people participate. First, a good idea would be to watch as many episodes of Battlestar Galactica that you can (there is a marathon on the SciFi Channel in Feb. Check listings). The contest: Write a CONTINUATION conclusion to the series first season (in other words, not BSG-80). Once again, if enough people participate, a prize may be involved." To participate, be sure to visit the following link at Colonial Fleets.

Battlestar Galactica Technical Journal bridge images online for viewing

Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming trailer 3D artist Kenneth Thomson Jr. has posted a new announcement at the Sci-Fi Channel BBoard: "Updated the Newslink, with some interesting info and finally.... I just posted the bridge images from the BSG Tech Journal that I created for Realm Press. Check out the above link. It's a graphically intensive site, and it is very slow to load on a dialup connection. Be forewarned.... But, Enjoy! All images are copyright 2003 by Kenneth Thomson Jr., so don't post them anywhere. Sincerely, Ken Thomson." The 3D renderings of the Battlestar Galactica bridge are absolutely amazing! Be sure to check out the new pictures at Ken Thomson's web site.
