What did they do?
I'm not a comic person, so I never saw it.

Well.....I gave them a brownie point for trying to reinvent the concept with a more compelling storyline. The execution though was way off, and don't get me started on how they tried to (ahem) drag in more than one unwelcome GINO reference!

But the one thing that amazes me is how that story and just about EVERY Dynamite story keeps making this wrongheaded assumption that religion in Galactica is polytheistic. Do these people ever LISTEN to the dialogue in the show? God is more than once referred to as singular by Adama and others. Heck, the whole title of the last episode is the ultimate comment on how the "standard" Colonial religion starts from a monotheistic background. I suspect that the influence of GINO is what causes this, and frankly it gets very irritating to me to see this mistake made over and over.

The acronym those of us who do not care for a certain "reimagined" show utilize (Galactica In Name Only).

I can't believe after all this time I didn't know what GINO actually stood for. That or my aging memory discarded it a long time ago.

And just to clarify the two GINO references that were in that G80 reimagining. Baltar refers to Adama as "Bill", and then the "new" Galactica that is unveiled at the end of the story for the "Galactica 1981" sequel that never happened is identical to the ship from GINO.
