Droopy they did have a schematic of the Galactica
displayed on a display in the ep "fire in space".
Also if you buy the dvd set, there are schematics
shown in the booklet that comes with it.

Default Many Many Friends with knowledge

It is so nice to know that there are so many fans out there who are so very willing and able to help out others with information and trivia. I have been posting on this site for over two years now and have always spoke to and heard from the best fans ever!
I am proud to be a part of this fandom and wish to stop a micron and let all of you out there know that.
I have just recently been elected President of the Chairpersons leading Galactica Fan Club. Before me served a wonderful fan who runs the website Battlestar New York. We at Galactica fan Club want each and every fan who is a member and those who have not joined us yet to feel a part of this fandom as I have for these few years.
Since the mini series aired in December 2003, there has been a super nova explosion of fans and traffic on all of the Galactica website. Not all fans are happy about that mini or with Ron Moore... but Galactica fans must all be embrassed. Those of us who have held this fandom together for twenty-five years are not afraid to extend a hand to a new fan. We don't have to like the new mini.... many loth it, but the fans have come together to celebrate a story that has endured. That is what is important.
Some fans have questions about the original and we need to willingly give them this informtion. That is what this fandom is about. Remember, we are all GAlacticans! All connected in some way.
I'd like to ask new fans and old to let us know what you would like to have us do to make you feel more like a member of our club. Use this forum if you'd like, or drop me a line at cdlegend40@hotmail.com We serve you!
I also recommend each and everyone to purchase the new DVD collection. It is nicely done. You can learn so much about the "Saga of a Star World" Also, to all fans - purchase a DVD from GAlacticon 2003. Those of the original cast who came to be with the fans really spoke to us from the heart. I know that a piece of every one of them made up a part of each character they played.
I salute you all!

According to imdb:
Quote:
(December 2003) Became one of the first people in Hollywood to suffer the debilitating effects of Epstein-Barr syndrome (in the 1980s). She has since recovered, but has left show business behind her.
Hope she is still doing well.

My niece suffers from Epstein-Barr as well. It does not go away and a busy career like modeling or acting will certainly add to the pain and chaos of the disability. I'm sure that we all wish her well. We shall always remember Maren as the beautiful Athena - loyal to her father and passionate about that rascal Starbuck! In Richard Hatch's books, she is the commander of her own Battlestar..... and capable as well. She is important to him as he is to her. A fitting continuation of a character that was hardly ever explored buring the original's one and only first season. May the Lords of Kobol look over our Athena!

Thanks for the info. I was wandering myself WHY
Seymour wasn't kept with the series. WHile it helped
to have the dvd's and learn about her illness; I always
wandered whether it was HER decision not to stay with
the show ........... Or larson and desanto's.

Default NEVER COUNT RICHARD OUT

While it appears as though Moore and his miniseries has the spotlight in the world of Galactica right now, the fans all revere Richard's vision and activly push for a continuation. Richard put much blood sweat and tears into this film and continues to show it around the contry and at other venues around the world. As far as getting a green light from Universal - it is doubtfull at this point; however, if it were not for that bit of film and the hard work of Richard Hatch, we would not have the DVD box set or the miniseries (such as it is). Much attention has been given Galactica in the last few years and it all began with fans like you and I. Richard is a fan and always will remain a fan of Galactica. We can continue to enjoy his vision through his novels and who knows - perhaps one day we'll see the return of Galactica the way it was ment to be. Until then, Richard will be turning his attention to his new project - Magellan and I ask all fans to support him in his endeavor. He is a truly remarkable gentleman and deserves our graditude and love.

I really liked the way all the characters seemed to know precisely where they
belonged and why .........I really loved learning more about HOW that was
accomplished by watching the extra features on the DVD set I bought.

I agree with you about Maren. I was really bumbed when Larsen
threw out the Adama family out of the script. I missed Athena and boxey.

Also ........I agree with you about how beautiful she is. I too think that she
is far far prettier then the 'teen queens' of today.

They mentioned somthing on the BG sciography special that it was Jane's agent who encouraged her not to remain.

A THWACKING is too good for her agent.

The BG premiere was loads of fun to watch, and got the show off to a good start. But it did begin to reveal what would be a continuing pattern of not paying too much attention to details.

1,000 Cylon fighters attacked and destroyed the battlestar fleet? Not too likely! That isn't near enough fighters to do the job. And there were no equivalents of bombers or torpedo planes, just the Cyclon fighters strafing the battlestars. Not nearly enough firepower.

And the Colonial home worlds were destroyed by strafing? That was just ridiculous. The mini did better by introducing nuclear weapons, which was pretty obvious but TOS failed to pick up on it. The show just didn't have any sense of realistic proportion or scale.

One thing I did like, though, was the clear preaching of military preparedness. It wasn't very subtle at all--it was obvious to any observant child that the "peaceniks" were stupid, while the truly wise men like Adama did not love violence but knew that sometimes it had to be used. And in case anybody missed that lesson with the destruction of the Colonial home worlds, they reviewed the lesson when the new Council, ignoring the lesson they should have just learned, chose to lay down their arms to show their peaceful intent at Carillon. Again, only Adama's stubborn insistence on military preparedness saved the day. Since I happen to agree with Adama's philosophy, I liked the direction the show was headed.

Just a minor clarification, Thomas, it wasn't 1000 cylon raiders - it was, in Apollo's words, "1000 to 1 odds".

If memory serves.

Ah, memory is such a fun tool! I have an old videotape of the episode, but haven't watched it for a while. You may be right I remember Apollo saying that while all the Cylon raiders starting showing up on the radar screen. So, 2000 raiders vs. Zack and Apollo? Still a small number. Should have been at least 100,000.

Oh, and another thing about the "peaceniks". A buddy of mine pointed out that when the U.S. fleet entered Tokyo Bay to accept the Japanese surrender, the carriers kept a full combat patrol in the air at all times, just in case the Japanese, even though totally defeated, pulled something funny. He found it impossible to "suspend disbelief" at the idea that the battlestar fleet would keep all their Vipers on deck to demonstrate their peaceful intent.

I do believe you are right Dawg. Just finished watching that dvd myself and
I do believe that's exactly what Apollo said.

Default suggestion for fan fiction

Chip Johnson plays a Warrior in one of the elevator scenes in "Saga," the one in which Answaw and her friend talk about having eaten too much. The elevator is taken to the ground level and the Warrior and the two women are presumably captured by the Ovions.
However, actor Chip Johnson is listed in the closing credits of "War of the Gods." He is one of the pilots who disappears flying over Iblis' planet.
So I am assume his character escaped the Ovions, lived through the attack on Carillon and returned to duty aboard the Galactica. So, what is the name of his character, and how did he escape?
I'll let one of the rest of you decide a on a plot for the rest of us.
