That may be a cynical and harsh assessment on my part, but after I reintroduced myself to what Richard wrote in 2001 to knock the DeSanto project that never was, it was all too clear to me that his passion for the series began and ended with what was in it for himself. Which is perfectly well and good for someone who has to look out for his own interests, but in his case that also meant stringing along a lot of Galactica fans along.
