I have emailed the journalist who promptly came back saying the case is due to go to court next month...if it's not delayed again!
The case has been delayed by about another year...according to said journalist watching matters.

Folks, there is no "good fight". Not anymore.

Producers are going to do whatever they want to do. Their only interest is in generating money. If they get it out of the old school fans, great. If they generate tons of new viewers and fans, well, for them, that's greater.

Know why?

Old fans die. Sometimes they die simply in the sense that they refuse to step forward to the new offering. Other old fans die as in dead and buried. In any case, a dead fan (whether metaphorical or literal) is not a money spending fan.

So, the choice is:
Keep writing the same ol' fluff that attracts the old school fans, and does nothing for the modern audiences. Keep writing the same ol' fluff til the old school fans are gone, and then you're writing to thin air.

Or you can write a new version that appeals to the modern audiences. You can choose to respect the old schoolers with a couple of nods here and there, or implement the one or two elements of the old stuff that might actually be transcendent enough to extend into the modern market, but most of it is going to have to be what appeals to today's guard.

Why? 'Cause that's where the money is. The new guard.

Recently, I had the relative displeasure of watching (out of morbid curiosity) "The People vs. George Lucas". A most damning tale about the nature of fandom if ever I saw one...and further justification for my abandoning fandom. Fans think they own the very thing that they don't. "Please don't take my Star Wars awayyyy.....I wrote the next paaart."

Back when I was a fan, I used to think that I had a damn good continuation for old school Galactica. But, it was a pipe dream...and I realized I had fallen into the fanboy trap. That's part of the reason why I never finished my other fan-fics. What was the point? Except to write them for myself? Ultimately, that's what you have to do is write for yourself, with the notion that it's never going to make a difference anywhere.

Fans don't decide things. Producers do.

All the fans can do is latch on and enjoy, or scream "childhood rape victim" and rage in futility and impotence until someone listens...which no one ever will.

I, as a non-fan of anything anymore, have only one requirement from Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, or The Muppet Show: Entertain me. If the movies/shows have done this, then mission accomplished, for I hold no higher standard to any one over any other.

Nowhere do I mandate that there must be some kind of fanservice done for my benefit or masturbatory fanboy pleasure.

If what I am seeing is an entirely new take on something I loved before, please, simply, entertain me.

Read my signature, folks. It helps.

Heh...all onomatopoeia aside, that was well written, Martok. I think I came to that same conclusion myself many years ago about a number of different things but was unable to effectively verbalize it in quite the way you have. Well said!

The Legacy and Return of “Battlestar Galactica”: Room 6BCF, 10:30 a.m. Actors Richard Hatch, Luciana Carro and Jamie Bamber join Dr. Kevin Grazier (science consultant for “Battlestar Galactica”) and producer Alec Peters to discuss the new “Battlestar Galactica” movie and show the Trailer.
???? Trailer?? Concept Trailer?

Link:
http://www.ibtimes.com/comic-con-201...s-sdcc-1633668

Is this true? Have somebody information or saw the ''Trailer''?

^^^ Interesting. First I've heard of this. Thought it was all still caught up in litigation hell between Larson and Universal. Sounds promising. I'll have to go digging for the trailer, provided it's not a re-showing of Hatch's old trailer from the 90's.

I'm sure it was the Second Coming trailer (and probably the Magellan trailer too).

Latest from Francis Lawrence regarding the new movie is here:
http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/bat...ncis-lawrence/

Dated from March of this year, here and elsewhere are signals of character "gender swapping" and nods to both the classic and GiNO versions.... Wow, imagine that. I once had a lot of hope for the franchise with the Fox telefilm continuation that was cancelled in 2001 and with Richard Hatch's Second Coming version. Now I feel Galactica as I know it and like it will be only through the DVD set and MeTV reruns on Saturday nights....sigh.

Let's face it alas. Anytime the name "Battlestar Galactica" gets associated with any potential project it will always be for these people in reference to the other entity and will be made according to the standards and templates of the other entity. As far as I'm concerned, that's less than worthless.

Painful as it is for Galactica fans to admit this, we lost the war for what Galactica means and represents to the people who hated the original and shoved the other entity down our throats and guaranteed that "their" version would become the default meaning of what Galactica is. I accepted that sad reality long ago and it made it easier for me to move on and why I wouldn't let myself ever get enthused about any potential project again because it's not going to be what any of us, all those long years ago when fandom was at its peak in the late 90s, ever thought would happen.
