Default Galactica sighted! Part II

Just saw this in the August 2003 copy of Sci Fi magazine.

On page 9 there is a story about Paul G. Allen co-founder of Microsoft. He is planning to invest $10 to $20 million to build a "cultural project" in Seattle that will seek to draw visitors into the science-fiction experience. Preliminary plans suggest that if it comes to fruition, it would be part museum, part amusement park and part little boy's fantasy. Tentatively called "SFX: The Science Fiction Experience", the project is to fill 13,000 square feet of the exhibit space that has been part of the Experience Music Project. The sci-fi project is scheduled to open in the summer of 2004. SFX's advisory board includes writers Greg Bear, Ray Bradbury, Octavia Butler and Arthur C. Clarke.

Now for the part about Galactica, one from the drawings for the museum shows a display case with a Viper Helmet from TOS.
