New Galactica 2003 at the Dallas Con?

New report from Jayworld at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums: "Ben at the Dallas Sci-Fi Show is considering the possibility of inviting stars of the new mini-series to the convention. I have already posted a long message, being a registered member, explaining in a nutshell the whole sordid situation behind Universal, Sci-Fi, Ron Moore, etc. I would ask that you all please visit the site, register, and post to my message, explaining your support of the original series actors, and not supporting anything to do with the new show, if you so desire. I would ask that if you do this, to PLEASE post respectfully and give much information, such as the petition drives, fan support, etc., as Ben is a great and decent guy, and is just putting some feelers out to see what those that attend his shows would like to see." To participate, be sure to visit the following link at SciFiExpo.com.

Milton's House of Cards Falls

In a surprising turn of events, most of Ron Moore's "Neo-Galactican" fan base is proved to be fabricated. Dozens of handles were cloned by just a few people. Two-Brained Cylon posted documentation of these facts at Cylon.org. The most well-known of the fake handles are: Captain Milton James, tashayar85, startrekkinbsg, Moore_Man, AntiHatch, bsgbountyhunter, William Husker Adama, Gaius Baltar, Laura Roslin, Kara Thrace, Number Six, and Cpt_ChouDi. Dozens of other handles were also falsified in this scam. Most of these fraudulent handles were from Vince Debernardi at Ingram Entertainment (SciFiMan76) and partner-in-crime Ted Gorospe at Galactica 2003 EzBoard (Apothis). For the complete report from Two-Brained Cylon, be sure to visit the following link at Cylon.org.

Battlestar Galactica Video Game - Interesting Tidbit

Michael Faries of BattlestarGalactica.com has posted a new report at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums. Michael reports that some interviews are coming up with folks associated with the game. Also, both Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict have recorded parts for the upcoming video game. And they're participating as Apollo and (male) Starbuck who visit the young version of William Adama via time travel. The console video game is still in development, so the cameo parts may or may not be included in the final version. For the complete report and more information, be sure to check out Michael's report at the following link.

Sheba: A Role Model! How has Battlestar Galactica Influenced You?

New report from Battlestar Galactica fan Peter Noble: "A snippet from an Anne (Sheba) Lockhart interview from TV Zone Special #35. The actress clearly cherishes her association with the saga and is particularly proud of its positive affect on viewers. 'I have met people in cities all over the country and the world who were influenced by Sheba,' she declares. 'I had a woman come up to me and tell me that she decided to learn to fly a plane because of Sheba. And the woman had become a commercial airline pilot! It's wonderful to have done something that has influenced people's lives 20 years down the road.'" Have you been influenced in a positive way by the original Battlestar Galactica? If so, post a reply to Peter Noble at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums.

New Dirk Benedict Forum and Chat Room Online

New report from Tracy B. of DirkBenedictCentral.com: "Well peeps... I finally did it and broke down and put up a *proper* forum on Dirk Benedict Central.com, complete with chat room. I hope I have all the bugs out of it, but if I don't, please don't hesitate to let me know. Various Dirk/BSG categories and I'm hoping to get a BSG chat going one night a week for anyone who's interested in joining me. Like CF, you'll need to register, but it's free. And if I can do some arm twisting, I may be able to get the Starbuckian One (the one WITH BA**S), to pop in once in a while." Be sure to check out the new Dirk Benedict Central forum, and thanks to Tracy for posting the report at Colonial Fleets!
