6. Action Alerts: For All Battlestar Galactica Fans

NEW! Participate in the Colonial Fan Force

NEW! The new Colonial Fan Force has launched, and has received endorsements from Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, Jack Stauffer, Jane Seymour, Stu Phillips, and has already received many online mentions. The message of the Colonial Fan Force: "At Galacticon, the 25 year reunion of the cast and crew of Battlestar Galactica, series creator Glen A. Larson announced that he would pursue a continuation movie if interest among the fan base remained strong following the broadcast of the Sci-Fi Channel re-imagining. Larson said that if he were to make such a movie, he would want to work with X-Men producer Tom DeSanto (you can read a more detailed account of this in our introduction). Thus the Colonial Fan Force was born. The sole purpose of the CFF is to demonstrate to Mr. Larson and Mr. DeSanto that this fan base remains as resolved as ever to bring about a continuation of the original series, complete with the original themes, cast, and characters leading a new generation of Colonial Warriors. To this end, fans from across the globe have joined forces to create the Colonial Fan Force, dedicated to raising $10,000 in donations from worldwide fans, with the goal of placing an ad in the 17 September 2004 issue of Daily Variety, and the September issue of Cinescape. Daily Variety has already confirmed a tentative agreement with the leadership of the CFF, while we also currently negotiate with other well known publications." For more information and to view the first draft of the advertisement and to participate, be sure to visit ColonialFanForce.org and spread the word!

UPDATED! Sign the Battlestar Galactica Continuation Petitions

UPDATED! Sign the Battlestar Galactica Continuation Petitions and show your support for a continuation of the Battlestar Galactica original series! The first petition is the Battlestar Galactica Original Revival Petition for Tom DeSanto, Bryan Singer, Dan Angel, Billy Brown, Glen A. Larson, Dan Pasternack, David Kissinger, Studios USA, Vivendi Universal, Sci-Fi Channel, and the Fox Network and states that We, the fans of the original 1978 sci-fi television series "Battlestar Galactica" are signaling our sincere hopes that original cast members (and their characters) are considered for regular roles in the new "Battlestar Galactica" pilot/ongoing series from Studios USA/Fox Network/Sci-Fi Channel in 2002. This is the Battlestar Galactica Original Revival Petition and currently has 17,400+ signatures. We still support this petition, so be sure to sign your name! The second petition is the Battlestar Galactica Richard Hatch Petition and 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 third petition is the Battlestar Galactica We The Fans Petition and states that We the fans of the mighty Battlestar Galactica would like to see the combined work of Tom DeSanto and Glen Larson in a major motion picture. As fans we also hope and pray that these two men can bring about a possible continuation with both the characters and actors that made the show a worth while venture. We don't ask for much but hope for a show that will make those who passed proud (Lorne Greene, Lloyd Bridges, Jonathan Harris, and John Colicos). Finally we believe that actions can speak louder then the printed words and hope that both men will take this request to heart. The fourth petition is the Battlestar Galactica: The Continuation Petition and states that The word has been given at Galacticon. The fans want above all else a continuation of the beloved series with Richard Hatch (Apollo), Dirk Benedict (Starbuck), and as many of the other stars of the show who want to participate. I don't believe we are asking for to much as evidenced by the huge DVD sales for the original product. The fifth petition is the Battlestar Galactica Larson/DeSanto Petition for Mr. Glen A. Larson, Mr. Tom DeSanto, Mr. Bob Wright CEO of NBC, Universal Studios and states that We the fans have signed this petition to show support for a Continuation of Battlestar Galactica with the original themes/characters/cast intact, as was announced at Glen A. Larson and Tom DeSanto at Galacticon. We support a united Larson/DeSanto effort. This petition begins December 10th 2003, which is one day after the final installment of the Ronald D. Moore Psuedo-Galactica mini series which aired on the Sci Fi Channel, to show that even after it's airing, there is still support and interest in a faithful Continuation of the original Battlestar Galactica series. Make a difference, be sure to sign the five Battlestar Galactica Continuation Petitions, and help spread the word!

Digital Photography Contest at Cylon.org with a Prize!

Cylon.org has just announced a new contest: "What is this thing? This isn't merely some crappy contest where you win nothing more than a compliment. This is a crappy contest in which you can win a compliment and DVD set of the original Battlestar Galactica series or $50. We request a small contest fee ($5.00 minimum to Cylon@Cylon.org through PAYPAL) OR a $10.00 donation to the CFF (starting May 14th). Once I have recovered enough contest fees to cover the prizes, any other entrance fees will also go to the CFF. The fee is VOLUNTARY. If you can afford it, please donate as I could use the help with the prize money and the CFF can use the help reaching their goal. Even if you can't donate, you're still welcome to join the contest whether you're a member here or not. If the contest is popular enough, I'll rally up more and better prizes. The CFF has $3000 more to earn. Why not join this contest to help make that happen? Concurrently, the images in the contest will be displayed on Cylon.org in a special gallery. Show off your skill, your good eye, and your creativity. What are the categories? There will be two categories: 'Real Life' and 'Faked, False, and Fabricated'. Real Life are pictures shown as taken, without alterations, retouching, or other manipulation except lighting, contrast, and color control. FFF images begin with a picture taken with a digital camera that are then altered through retouching, combination with other images, integration with CG, stylized with artistic effects, or anything else that strikes your fancy. Any images that insult specific personalities or make religious or political statements will be excluded. Any images determined to be in extremely poor taste will also be excluded. The contest begins May 14th and ends 28 June 2004. The winners will be announced on 4 July 2004 at which time there will be a huge celebration all across the United States."

ColonelTigh reports: "It is 20 years before the destruction of the 12 colonies of man, Commander Bartlet, the newly appointed Commanding Officer of the Battlestar Columbia has taken command of the 3rd fleet. Their mission: To fight back the Cylon invasion, and put an end to almost 1000 years of war. Battlestar Galactica: The Cylon Wars is all about role-playing. When simming in BSG:CY, the roleplayers are not only playing a character inside their universe; but also they are investing a part of themselves into what they would dream to be if they were living in that universe."

Viper Cockpit: Detailed Paint Images of Viper Controls

Battlestar Galactica fan justjackrandom has posted three detailed images of the Viper cockpit control panels. justjackrandom reports: "I am no artist, but I wanted layouts of the viper so that when I build my cockpit mock-up, I had relatively detailed plans. I started with scans of the shuttle control panels that were in the original blueprints. That is why some of the lines and things still look fuzzy. I liked the look, so I kept it. I then modified the controls from there. A number of the controls are speculation, as we never saw all of the panels, and even what we did see wasn't always clear. This represents a non-C.O.R.A. ship." For the three paint images, be sure to check out the following link at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums.

Audio Continuation: The Return of a Hero

Battlestar Galactica revival organizer Shawn Hardy has posted an update on his audio continuation, entitled "Battlestar Galactica: The Return of a Hero". Shawn reports: "Well, all parts are cast and the idea worked out great. Amberstar and Emerita wrote their own scene and did the voice acting for it. Then they emailed it to me and now the first 5 minutes of the last battle scene is done. They are in Vipers talking to each other along with Starbuck, Troy and Dillon. While at the same time they are knocking those pesky updated Cylons out of space. I had full intention of posting a casting call but others came forward behind the scenes and now the whole thing is cast. Thanks to everyone who have waited for this. I think we are finally in the home stretch of a 90 minute audio continuation and I hope it's what the fans want because I tried to capitalize on the ideas that I read over the last 5 years on the net." Many thanks to old war daggit Shawn Hardy for his incredible work on the audio continuation project.

Original Battlestar Galactica Action Figures and Vehicles

Brand-new action figures and vehicles for the original Battlestar Galactica television series are coming soon from Joyride Studios! The JoyrideStudios.com web site reports: "The sci-fi classic Battlestar Galactica lives again! Coming this fall, Joyride Studios will release action figures and vehicles based on the hit TV show. Collectors will be finally be able to get their hands on figures that resemble the show's actors—a first for Battlestar Galactica toys. Richard Hatch as Apollo, Dirk Benedict as Starbuck and Lorne Greene as Adama are some of the realistic figures coming out—not to mention the nefarious Cylon Centurion.

Warrior Girl Painting Finished!

New report from Colonial Fleets webmaster thomas7g: "Hi Everyone! I finally finished (mostly) the drawing on the Colonial Fleets splashpage. I had originally planned on doing this finished shading stuff but all the admining over and problems with CF put this girl on a back burner. But with the new calm and wonderful atmosphere of CF, AND the great work of our mods, I have been able to get back to her. I hope you like it."

New Galactica Technical & Science Reference Web Site

Battlestar Galactica fan justjackrandom has launched a brand-new web site dedicated as a Battlestar Galactica technical and science reference. justjackrandom reports: "My web site is finally in a viewable form. As I am not a graphic artist, and my knowledge of HTML is just enough to get me in trouble, it isn't fancy, but it is really meant to be content-based anyway, so the look will have to stand until I get the content where I want it (it is a bit content light at the moment). The link follows. Enjoy!" Thanks to justjackrandom for posting the announcement at the Battlestar Galactica Club Forums.

The roots of the word "Yahren"

Here is an interesting new report from Muffit at Colonial Fleets: "Well, well, you all probably already know this, but I didn't. Whilst I was perusing the splendiferous web, I ran across a German phrase... and the word 'Jahren' was prominently displayed. 'Jahren' is German for 'year', and it's pronounced, 'yahren'! Can't believe it took me all these yahren to find out!!!" Thanks to Muffit for reporting on the roots of the Colonial Year.

I hope you enjoyed the prank that Tom at Colonial Fleets and I played. Tom corrupted me at about 3 AM and we decided to trade forum designs. I changed our background, headers, and scroll bars to match the design at CF. Tom did the same, and even went further and changed his forum name and link colors to match ours. I hope you had fun, and look out, who knows what will happen next yahren!"
