That's quite a list, Jayworld. Pretty awesome.
You got me thinking of the Original Cast that I have had the privilege to meet over the years as well.

Since around 1998 I have been fortunate to have met and gotten autographs from:

Richard Hatch
Herb Jefferson Jr.
Jack Stauffer
Anne Lockhart
John Colicos
Terry Carter
Sarah Rush
Richard Lynch
John de Lancie
Noah Hathaway

All were a true pleasure to meet and talk with.

A number of years ago I was also fortunate enough to save up and purchase the signed lithograph of the Battlestar Galactica piece released by Lightspeed Fine Arts.
Most all of the main cast signed the lithograph with the exception of Lorne Green and Lloyd Bridges. Sadly, they had already passed before the piece was released.
John Colicos did make the signing before his passing, however.

Oh, the person that was a total disappointment in-person?

I met Dirk in 2006, on my birthday, at a con in Pittsburgh.

We talked a little about his website, DBC but, mainly talked about our kids. His son and my daughter were/are soccer players. It was cool.

Very cool. Dirk is very nice in person. I do remember that Richard Hatch and Herb Jefferson, who were at the same show, gave Dirk a hard time for charging $20 for autographs, whether it was on your item or on a picture you purchased from Dirk. I think he had a deal, too, at the time, for $40 you got both his books signed plus your choice of either 1 autographed 8x10 from his table or a signature on your item.

I had gotten Dirk's autograph through the mail, and he wrote me a nice letter, so when I saw him in person, I showed the items he sent me to him, and he said, "Well....this makes it look like I'm a nice guy...."

I am guessing Maren Jensen was to the address that was floating around for her about a decade ago ?

I don't pry into such details but I understand she lives her life away from the limelight.

My only contact with the cast members is on a professional level, such as the audio book I recorded with Richard Hatch.

Very cool that you met him; he played two very distinct role in Galactica...

A few of the cast, unfortunately, have passed away since I originally got their autographs. Colocos and Bridges come to mind.

Yes, they are .jpg files. Followed the instructions in the FAQ on how to post an image, but there is no button to click to browse my computer, etc.... Do I not have privileges to post images?

I checked your profile and rank and you should be able to upload an attachment on a thread from your computer.

Below the Post Reply box, you should see the heading "Additional Options".

Below that should be a heading that says, "Attach Files". In that box will be a button that says, "Manage Attachments".

Just click on that button and it will open a new window that will allow you to upload an attachment from either your computer or from a URL.

Just looked, and below the Post Replies Button is indeed an Additional Options header, but the only options in the box under Additional Options (checked or unchecked) are:
Show your signature
Automatically parse links in text
Disable smilies in text

There is no Attach Files Header.

I looked at the bottom of my CP, and it states that I do not have the privilege to Attach files, so that is probably the problem. Can this be activated for my account?

OK - this post is an experiment, which I may or may not leave up for troubleshooting purposes...

But it does have a direct relationship with this thread. Technically speaking.

If it helps, I just noticed that the Manage Attachments does indeed appear for me when I click Post Reply in the other sub-forums (such as the New Battlestar Comics string), but it does not appear in this particular string, so I will have to create a new Post/string, it seems, to post pictures.

Thanks!

Interesting. I heard as much and honestly I think actors are hit or miss. They are people. When I am around actors usually it is at conventions and generally I am a volunteer. Actors kinda scare me. :P I know them, they don't know me, that is just weird. So I tend to hang with other fans.

I was helping escort De Lancie to the parking lot after he M.C.'d a performance of Star Trek orchestrated music in Dallas. I was there with the USS Joshua, a local Sci-Fi group. It was the second day of two and I came in on the second day. The one thing I thought was interesting was he said "Huh, I remember all of you, but you are new." I smiled, introduced myself with the Joshua and he was pleasant. Thought it was interesting how he remembered faces, or maybe I was cute enough to take a moment for.

I'm not gay, but am flattered.

-------

What I also got to witness was what I think make actors crazy. Had a aquiantance that was also helping with that event and he was hell bent on getting a autograph. I tried to discourage him on it and not to hastle De Lancie, but he made it a point to be in the elevator to ask for an autograph. He got it and De Lancie was cool enough about it. Just blah, can see why actors can be so cranky.

Glad that you had a nice experience with DeLancie. For me, I met him at the Star Trek convention in Tulsa back in 1999. They used to have annual Trek conventions in Tulsa each year.

DeLancie was there along with Nimoy promoting their radio and CD broadcasts, as well as discussing all things "Trek" in a special "after hours" meeting with about 250 fans. Unfortunately, the promoters that ran the show herded the fans through autograph tables like cattle; literally hand off your picture and fast walk down a table as you view the "handler" give it to someone to the star's left, who handed the picture (or item) to the star, who handed it to a person on his right who handed it to you. This pace was non-stop, too - all the while being yelled at by the promoters to "hurry up; let's go!". Got Nimoy and DeLancie this way, and got to see Nimoy dress down the promoter while standing in line for DeLancie. Evidently Nimoy did not like the fact that the autograph session was taking longer than scheduled.

The next day, I went up to DeLancie at the radio/broadcast table to ask if he would personalize the photo he signed at the "cattlecar" autograph line the evening prior. DeLancie was alone at the table and no one was around him. He asked if I had it; I replied yes and thanked him for his time, but I decided not to ask any of the questions concerning his appearance in Battlestar that I had prepped, as he was aloof, cold, and downright uninviting. That's my experience.

Those Nimoy/DeLancie radio dramas were very good. Their version of "The Time Machine" is very wonderful, eerie listening late at night in the dark, especially when you hear Nimoy describe the first contact with a Morlock! Unfortunately they ran out of budget to do more than the half dozen stories they did do.
