5. Action Alerts: For All Battlestar Galactica Fans

Post Office Mail the Universal Entertainment Group

PRESS RELEASE: "BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (4-hour miniseries) - SCI FI re-imagines the groundbreaking and beloved series in which 'a rag, tag fugitive fleet' of the last remnants of mankind searches for its true home. Fleeing the aliens responsible for the slaughter of their homeworld, the Battlestar Galactica survivors must meet a whole new set of challenges. This intriguing twist on a classic will be written by writer Ronald D. Moore (Roswell, Mission Impossible II) with Breck Eisner (Steven Spielberg's Taken; The Invisible Man) attached to direct. Distributed by USA Cable Entertainment, the Project will be executive produced by David Eick (American Gothic, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Spy Game)." The new miniseries is a re-imagining, and not a continuation, of the original Battlestar Galactica series, and may not include the original cast, characters, and themes! Send a post office mail to the Universal Entertainment Group! For more information, visit our Battlestar Galactica revival information page.

Boycott Commercial Advertisers of the Sci-Fi Channel

A brand-new web site has launched to support a boycott of commercial advertisers on the Sci-Fi Channel (and Vivendi-Universal, USA Networks/Studios USA). Fans are encouraged to visit the new site, and boycott any sponsor of the "Battlestar Galactica" re-imagining mini-series scheduled for the Sci-Fi Channel in 2003. The boycott site includes a link to the new Battlestar Galactica Sci-Fi Advertiser Boycott Petition (which we've also included in the list of primary petitions, below.) Also, the site features an extensive list of current advertisers on the Sci-Fi Channel, as well as a form letter that you can utilize. Help support the boycott of sponsors, and spread the word!

Sign the five primary Battlestar Galactica Online Petitions

The five primary Battlestar Galactica Online Petitions are available for you to sign and show your support for Battlestar Galactica. The five petitions listed here are endorsed by BattlestarGalactica.com. Petition #1 is the Battlestar Galactica Revival Petition to signal the sincere hopes that original cast members (and their characters) be considered for regular roles in the new Battlestar Galactica pilot/ongoing series. Petition #2 is the Battlestar Galactica DVD Petition to urge Vivendi Universal and Studios USA to seriously consider the release of ALL episodes of the original Battlestar Galactica television series on DVD/VHS formats. Petition #3 is the Battlestar Galactica New Series Petition aimed directly at the current Sci-Fi Channel happenings and utilizes stronger wording. Petition #4 is the Battlestar Galactica Fight for Survival Petition to support the new Battlestar Galactica production only if it is done right with direct linage of the original series and includes core members of the original cast in their original roles and includes the original Galactica ship. Petition #5 is the Battlestar Galactica Sci-Fi Advertiser Boycott Petition and states that the thousands of fans are left little choice but to fight back in the only way left to us. We will vote with our wallets and pocketbooks. To those advertisers on the Sci-Fi Channel, we caution you: Beware! We will boycott your advertised products for a period of two years if you sponsor the Battlestar Galactica re-imagining on the Sci-Fi Channel. These are five petitions that are endorsed by BattlestarGalactica.com and BattlestarPegasus.com. You can make a difference by signing the petitions yourself, and be sure to alert your family, friends, and fellow fans as well to visit BattlestarGalactica.com and sign the petitions!

Sign the four additional Battlestar Galactica Online Petitions

The four additional Battlestar Galactica Online Petitions are also available for you to sign and show your support for Battlestar Galactica. The Battlestar Galactica Richard Hatch Petition respectfully requests that Richard Hatch make his trailer, "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" available to be shown on the Internet. Richard Hatch -IS- listening! If you agree with the petition, then sign the petition to make your voice heard. The Battlestar Galactica Sci-Fi Management Petition requests a change in management at the Sci-Fi Channel. The petition urges the Sci-Fi Channel to focus more on sci-fi programming, including Battlestar Galactica, instead of broadcasting non sci-fi television shows, or axing sci-fi shows that have done well, such as Lexx and Farscape. The Battlestar Galactica Save Starbuck Petition is a humorous petition, but for a serious matter: Ron Moore's new Battlestar Galactica mini-series script for the Sci-Fi Channel calls for Starbuck to become a female! Starbuck, one of the original series' most popular characters, becomes Kara "Starbuck" Thrace in the new mini-series, and "Starbuck" is merely her radio call sign. If you want Starbuck to remain a male and make your voice heard, be sure to sign the Battlestar Galactica Save Starbuck Petition. Finally, the Battlestar Galactica No Re-Imagining Petition is a succinct petition that supports Richard Hatch's "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" continuation concept over the Ron Moore re-imagining felgercarb. You can make a difference, so be sure to sign the four additional petitions, after you sign the five primary petitions!

July 1, 2003

New DVD Box Set Pricing and Supplement List

New DVD Box Set update from TVShowsOnDVD.com! "Universal has just given us the preliminary list of supplements for Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series. This list of extras, and the names they will go by, is not yet finalized and could be subject to change. As it stands right now, they look like this: Insight into the 'Making of' Battlestar Galactica, Creation of Battlestar Galactica: an Interview with creator Glen A. Larson, Deleted Scenes, Commentary for selected episodes by Cast/Crew, Visual Effects with John Dykstra, Sci-Fi Special: Making of the Show, Composing the Music: Stu Phillips and Glen A. Larson, Production Notes, Sneak preview into the new Sci-Fi Channel Battlestar Galactica mini-series, and Interactive Game Trailer. Re-iterating the specs: This will be shown in the originally broadcast 4x3 aspect ratio, with both 2.0 stereo soundtrack and 5.1 Dolby soundtrack. French and Spanish subtitles are on board, along with Closed Captioning for the hearing impaired. As we said earlier today, the release date has been pushed back exactly one week, to October 21st. The S.R.P. will be $119.98 for this 6-Disc set with almost 20 hours of show... EVERY episode of the one and only season of the original Battlestar Galactica! For those of you interested in owning the alternate, theatrical cut of the pilot episode, 'Saga of a Star World' (with a shorter running time, and alternate scenes including a different fate for one major character), you'll be pleased to know that Universal is going to re-promote that old DVD on the same date (10/21), at a new lower SRP of $19.98." Many thanks to Kingfish for posting the report at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums!

Supporting Richard Hatch

Colonial Fleets administrator thomas7g posted a very well-written tribute in support of Richard "Apollo" Hatch: "I just wanted to say how much sense it makes for a Battlestar Galactica Forum to support those who brought the original show to life. That includes Richard Hatch who has been the main force behind the revival effort (before the French corporation Vivendi-Universal stole it and shipped it off to Canada). He has given a lot to our lives by being Apollo. And lighting the revival fires at great personal cost. He has spent much of his life, his money, and his time to give us a revival. And we do REALLY appreciate that. Also, when it comes down to it... even a great show like Battlestar Galactica is still just a show. And Richard Hatch is a man who has brought much enjoyment into my childhood living room. Some people may not like his choice of guests at Galacticon, I don't blame you, I see your point. But... Richard Hatch is still 'the Man'." Thanks to thomas7g for posting the tribute at Colonial Fleets.

Clones, Clones, Go Away (Ron D. Moore)

Writer/Producer Ron D. Moore of the new mini-series just posted a note at the Cylon Alliance Forums. Ron D. Moore stated: "It's come to my attention that there is a group (or a person) out there cloning handles, faking support for me and the miniseries, attacking other fans, and generally being a pain in the [astrum] for people. Please stop. Actually, knock it the [frak] off. You're doing me no favors by stoking the flames of anger and animosity which already exist among elements of the fan base even higher. It's also just not cool and you should find something better to do with your time. Ronald D. Moore." The complete announcement from Ron D. Moore is available at the following link at Cylon.org.

OT: New "V" to Ignore Anything Beyond the Original Mini-Series

Battlestar Galactica fan gastrof posted a report at Cylon.org regarding the upcoming "V" mini-series: "This week's TV GUIDE (U.S. version, page 5, June 14th issue) says this about the new 'V' - 'The proposed 2004 TV-movie will jump off from the conclusion of the first miniseries, bypassing the original sequel and its spin-off series.' Forget about V: THE FINAL BATTLE and the weekly show."

OT: DeSanto and Transformers

Cinescape has reported that former Battlestar Galactica producer Tom DeSanto will be working as producer for the upcoming Transformers movie: "THE TRANSFORMERS have been many things: a toy line, cartoon series, comics, even a theatrical movie. But now Hasbro's robots in disguise are preparing for their greatest role yet...as a live-action movie. Don Murphy (THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) and Tom DeSanto (X-MEN) are the two gentlemen who have the plan and will be the film's producers. DeSanto is also in the midst of creating a story treatment for the movie, which will serve as the template for the screenplay." Tom DeSanto was originally working on a Battlestar Galactica continuation with director Bryan Singer, until Bryan departed the project to work on X-Men 2. Shortly after that, the Sci-Fi Channel announced their "re-imagining" of Battlestar Galactica with Ron Moore at the helm. For the complete report, check out the following link at Cinescape. Thanks to dah66 for posting the link at Colonial Fleets.

BattlestarGalactica.com has a New Webmaster

Colonial Fleets original owner Darrell Lawrence posted a new announcement: "I'm not quite sure what to say at this point, other than the legacy Michael Faries started with that site and the others he worked on that I'll also be taking over will not die. His influence and such will be present while I am the web master. The content will remain the same, but be re-arranged a tad, new stuff added, etc. The main change will be the layout/design, as that'll have my touch on it. I look forward to working with Richard Hatch on these web sites, and do want to emphasize, through me *and* Richard, that we want to work with *all* of the BSG web sites out there. I will be stepping down as a FORUMS Admin here, *but* will still be around to work on the web site at CF for Don. If anyone has any questions, comments, suggestions, etc, feel free to post them in this thread." Thanks to Darrell Lawrence for posting the announcement at Colonial Fleets.

Goodbye from Michael Faries

BattlestarGalactica.com original webmaster Michael Faries is stepping down from his position at Richard Hatch's web sites: BattlestarGalactica.com, RichardHatch.com, GreatWarOfMagellan.com, and Michael's own BattlestarPegasus.com. Michael Faries has worked tirelessly for 5+ years for Battlestar Galactica, Richard Hatch, and to provide hope for the fans. Michael's stewardship of the sites and his incredible networking has made the sites top-of-the-line and earned the respect of many, many fans. We wish the very best to Michael in all his pursuits. Darrell Lawrence of ColonialFleets.com will be handling the web sites (with the exception of BattlestarPegasus.com). Darrell has very big shoes to fill, though he is certainly the right person for the job. Best of luck to both Michael and Darrell!
