Happy Birthday, BG. {sigh}
I'm confused. Is this new BG series a replacement for the on-again/off-again movie that we've been discussing for some time, or is this in addition to the movie?

I realize that NBC Universal owns the television rights to Battlestar, but does Glen Larson (his family) still own the film rights?

Sometimes the lack of information over a period of years and then a lot of information all at once leaves this original series fan (yes, "fan") confused....

Listened to the Return of a Hero audio yesterday. An impressive job of editing! I was a little skeptical at first about whether a coherent storyline could be sustained just with dialogue re-editing from the actual show but it gelled together nice by the end I felt. And congrats on those two bad dream sequences!

Thanks. It was fun to create that. OldWarDaggit put a lot of time and effort into the editing of it.

And to think... Part 1 was completed *before* Galacticon in 2003. For the entire 3 parts, this year marked 15 years.

Given what transpires in network TV and the proliferation of these new streaming services, I would have to think that the BSG movie idea has been scrapped and they will now forge ahead with this new TV show. But that is speculation...could be a new movie and then kick off the show on the streaming service...

The new reboot won't be based on the original series it will based on RDM BSG. I don't know how they will do it but I doubt
there won't be anything to do with reptilian Cylons.

I don't get all the hate for NuBSG? I thought it was one of the best shows ever made I still have much love for TOS but, I loved both shows. It's like how much I loved Star Trek TNG and DS9. I still don't u understand how they will do this unless they are setting it in the first Cylon War like it Blood and Chrome (loved it)
I think it's ok to enjoy both shows. So way we all!

This path has been trod, countless times, over the last decade and a half.

One cannot, accurately, compare the original Galactica vs Moore's series to Roddenberry's original Star Trek, TNG, DS9, and Voyager.

The latter example is a continuation of the original story/universe/history and there is a linkage from one show to the next.

The former example has Moore's show restarting the story and creating its own history/universe.

I would think even those who are fans of other entity can understand why for some people it will always generate hate. You can disagree with the reason for that hate, and that's okay. But understanding why some people (like myself) will never change about it, is another thing entirely.

Yes. We are always supposed to "move along" or to "grow", but never the other side.
Uh uhh.

Agreed. Unfortunately, much of the nomenclature of GINO is now forever associated with the Battlestar brand as a whole, even though much of the language, concepts and ideas within GINO never were in the original (ONLY) series. Unfortunately, unlike Star Trek or even the original three Star Wars movies, the original Battlestar has not generally fared well with the younger crowd or entertainment media. In a way, the original series references seemingly are a relic of the past in many circles.

I still am hoping that the new BG TV series on Peacock will be something that we as original series lovers will enjoy. I am still somewhat in the dark or confused as to the intent of this upcoming series as opposed to the upcoming movie that is constantly on-again/off-again/on-again (did this new series supplant the movie plans, is it a separate project, etc.?)....

I for one am thankful that they are leaving my version alone.

They keep "throwing up" the same crap and that's fine with me. Just leave the real Galactica in peace.
