Default DeSanto remark removed from Sci Fi Wire?

It may just be a glitch on their website but it looks as though the story has been removed, the link has been removed from the Sci Fi home page, but still exists on the Sci Fi BSG page.

I think this is the thread

DeSanto Upbeat About Galactica July 25th, 2003 14:53 PM

X-Men producer Tom DeSanto—whose own plans to produce a new version of Battlestar Galactica with director Bryan Singer didn't happen—told SCI FI Wire that he thinks the miniseries is in "good hands," though it differs from his own vision. DeSanto was in the audience at Comic-Con International as they previewed Galactica, from executive producer David Eick, writer/executive producer Ronald D. Moore and director Michael Rymer.

"There's a lot of similar themes to the Ronald Moore Galactica and our Galactica, which I'm glad to see," DeSanto said during an interview for SCI FI's upcoming behind-the-scenes special, Battlestar Galactica: The Lowdown. "I just came out of the preview of seeing the miniseries and, I think to fans especially, [I'd say] 'Give them a chance.'"

DeSanto and X-Men helmer Singer worked on Galactica for 18 months before the current team took over. DeSanto said that his and Singer's version would have been a continuation of the original 1970s TV series, while the current version is a re-imagination. But DeSanto added that his version of Galactica would also have included human-looking Cylons, the robotic enemies of humanity.

"We did have human Cylons, but we did it in a different sort of twist," DeSanto said. "It was the old Colonials who became indoctrinated into the Cylon society. The one way that they found they could survive was to give up their free will." In DeSanto and Singer's version, humans were turned into "de facto Cylons" by being injected with nanotechnology, he said.

DeSanto added that he was reserving opinion about the miniseries' other big change: making Starbuck a woman. He said that he would take a "wait and see" attitude about that change, but that he had his fingers crossed. "I'll be tuned in in December," he said. Battlestar Galactica premieres Dec. 7.

This is sounding more and more like a dirty political scandal, rather than TV. God, the mentality of these people!
