I never thought of it this way before. What you're saying D, makes a lot of sense.

I'll have to think about it.

Darrell:
Great statement. I concur totally. Been on this ride (like most of you) since 1978. Watched the show, watched BG1980, bought the novels, toys, comics, bought Richard's new novels, saw and spoke with Richard, Herb, and Dirk at the Plano Comicon right after the Fox DeSanto/Singer TV movie was announced (man, it was electric in the room that day, so many were excited), saw Richard's The Second Coming multiple times…been a part of it all. Ready to see something, good or bad. Heck, the current comics are a good ride at the moment….

This news, though welcomed, seems to be the excuse some fans of the latest version have needed to drag up the vitriol those fans have of BSG78. Awfully tiresome.

Be nice to see if it happens but I have the memories of 78 and won't hold my breath lest I am severely disappointed.

Careful for what you wish for. In some people's eyes this has already ran it's course with the 2003 mini and series. Although I would like to see an ending to this just exactly what direction Larson takes is critical. Again the announcement is a "reimagining". So your saying in essence you are admitting that you f'd up 3 times before and we are going to get it right this time? Sorry I don't buy it. In order to initiate closer Darrell there would have to be cannon history and in my eyes there has not been enough. How do you incorporate the TOS and NuBSG into a storyline that satisfies everyone? The only logical course is to do a prequel centered around the TOS. Then yet again how many "sequels" do you think they could possibly generate to finish the storyline? If this bombs it kills Galactica for good. Having first hand spoken for hours with Tom DeSanto and his vision and story arc it's a slam dunk. Put it on tv where it belongs and let Tom run with the vision he had. It was good and makes the most sense to feasibly create a history and an end.

I have kept this show alive in my own world since it disappeared off of the small screen so unless Larson blow's me away with a significant story I will choose to stay away.

Default Re: Battlestar Galactica Movie News

I suggested this over at TOK, but I thought it might generate a little fun musing here too:

What IF it was a reimaging because it told a story during the 1000 yahren war and satisfied Glen's longing to do a Pegasus story: Say it ends with the Pegasus as sole survivor of (I just realized I named the wrong battle at TOK) the destruction of the Fifth Fleet at Molokai. That could even be the cliffhanger: did they or didn't they survive?

From Universal's viewpoint that's a "new" story. From Glen's point: It might be that untold Pegasus story he's been tasting since Lloyd Bridges swaggered onto the Pegasus' deck. For a new generation: it's a spaceship story in the middle of a hotly fought war. Do you think something of that order could work?

The ship already sailed for me long ago. I've ceased to care about what might come because it won't be what I wanted to see, which is a resolution of the interrupted storyline from Galactica. We lost the chance to do it, and it's gone. I'm not interested in a retelling of Saga "done right" or a story about the Pegasus or anything that isn't what the whole dream of a continuation was for me in the first place. But I know that's not going to happen, so I won't have cause to whine when the particulars become clear. I've already accepted that outcome ahead of time.

Honestly, I think anyone in this fandom has a right to be a little cynical, or even a lot cynical about this.

I just personally have to have that "wait and see. Potential positives ahead," perspective. There's enough rough, tough and bummer in the universe...I'll take a little glimmer when and where I can find it. Even if it's just that we all had an excuse to de-lurk and chat.

You hit the nail on the head. We have had our hopes built up so many times to have them dashed. I've gotten to the point that when talk about Galactica surfaces, I don't even let it bother me.

I can totally understand this view, especially when the fandom has been jerked around by the cancellation of the Fox pilot (DeSanto), then an abrupt 180 to the reimagination and ignoring of original fandom (us). Then to see the on-again, off again promise of a new movie… and with all the teasing (such as the basic premise of the PS2/XBox BG game, etc.). Colonial Fan Force, etc. It's been a long ride.

Having said that, I still remain optimistic and check these boards often (and contribute when I can) and check online for new movie info.

I can't help it, I LOVE Battlestar Galactica (the original, classic series) and always will….

Totally, on one and three. I however do not have any optimism. H'Wood is full of boray astrums who think they are semi-divine visionaries, who see and know all, while we fans are the Great Unwashed, grovelling at the foot of Olympus, for any scrap they happen to TOS our way.

I do not want that.

I want them to make this, good or bad, as I said. If it's good, great. if not, then let the last version be the last version, rather than the 2003 stuff to be the last version.

I have a feeling that, with this particular writer and with Glen more involved, we will see something closer to the original rather than the 2003 version.

Will it be good? Who knows. But it WON'T be the 2003 version.

THAT, my friend, is my point. If it's bad, THEN maybe BSG can be left alone, as you want it left alone.

I get what you are saying. Either do really well or fail miserably so that is the end of it and it reverts to a fan piece.

I still want option A. Just my druthers.

I'm with Darrell on this...

This particular project has been a long time coming and we've all wondered what a big budget film version would look like. It's about time we found out. I'll go see it in whatever form it takes. If it's good, then I'll be pleasantly surprised. If it's not, it'll just be another in a long line of failed remakes. In the long run, no film or TV series holds my reason for living in the balance...

One slight problem. Good movie plotline but, without the Battlestar Galactica in the film. It wouldn't be a Battlestar Galactica movie.

Questions:
Would you support/watch the movie if:

1. It is a reboot with the original characters played by different actors (Adama, Apollo, Starbuck, Athena, Baltar, etc.) in the vein of the new Star Trek films

2. It is a reimagination that blends (not sure how that would work) both the original series and the new series

3. It is a new story featuring elements of the original series, such as Jewels referred to in her post on the Pegasus

4. It is a continuation of the original series, set 30 years later, with cameo-to-minor roles for Richard Hatch (Apollo), Dirk Benedict (Starbuck), Herb Jefferson (Boomer), Terry Carter (Tigh), with the main thrust being the younger actors

Well, you do know that Battlestar is a rip-off of Star Wars, right (at least, that's what Lucas thought)….

Come on, everyone knows George Lucas invented science fiction, right? Kinda like Al Gore invented the internet, Apple invented the mouse, and Marconi invented the radio.

I read somewhere that star trek was inspired by Forbidden Planet.

1. I would watch. 2. Glen Larson could sell the Galactica:1980 rights to Ron Moore to do an updated TV series that starts after the New York City street scenes with Head Six and Head Gaius Baltar. 3. It would be a Battlestar Pegasus movie unless it takes place after the events of the BSG episode 'The Living Legend'. 4. I would watch.

Default Re: Battlestar Galactica Movie News

I wasn't kidding though, folks. Seriously... everytime something major happens in the Star Wars universe, the BG movie thing pops up.

On a side note, go to the Gallery and check this out - http://www.colonialfleets.com/galler...s.php?cat_id=8

Look at the year of that. Then tell me what movie came out around that time.

When DeSanto/Singer were connected to the BG project in 2002/2003, guess what sequel had just came out?

In 2005, when DeSanto was still being pushed to do a movie and team up with Larson (just rumors at the time, much like now... didn't really "take off" until 2009 with Singer back involved and DeSanto out), guess what trilogy had its third part in theaters?
