Galactica Audio Continuation Update

Battlestar Galactica veteran warrior oldwardaggit has posted an update at Colonial Fleets regarding his Galactica audio continuation: "Well here is an update on the Galactica audio continuation (Return of a hero) plus some more insight to the story and changes that have taken place. At first I was just going to do a short story with actors interacting with some samples of the original voice-overs but Darrell talked me into not being so lazy with it and actually interacting the original characters with each other also. By now most of you have heard the first part and basically know what the story is about. The story takes place 20-plus yahrens from the original and only uses certain elements from Galactica 80 as well as Richards books." For the complete in-depth update, be sure to check out oldwardaggit's report at Colonial Fleets.

News on the Complete Battlestar Galactica Card Set

New report from ernie90125 at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums: "For those collecting the Rittenhouse Archives Complete Battlestar Galactica Card Set I have some news which may interest you... And for those who don't collect it, you may like to check out the link anyway as they are good to look at... News: There is to be a second Battlestar Galactica card set next year. I don't know whether it will be a full set, or an expansion set. But it will include the missing autograph cards which are known to exist (including Jane Seymour as Serina!) More costumes are known to have been bought, so there may be more costume cards. The wrapper offer Battlestar Galactica card has been removed at present. Also, for those interested in looking at or collecting the sketch cards, there is a page at the following link which is displaying all the different variations. Last time I checked - there were 116 different sketch cards!" Many thanks to ernie90125 for the report.
