only one? Monolith and I have been talking about building Full sized Vipers lol. Nevermind googling them (not likely to happen anytime soon unfortunately lol)

If you want a ready to go out of the box Blaster, yes, my suggestion would be the BSG.ORG laser. I have one, I love it, it was my first laser lol. (only thing I added to it was a trigger)

If you would like to save a bit of money and do a little assembly then the Wilco Models Laser is almost the exact same laser piece.

You can find them on Ebay fairly regularly. I have been dealing with Wilco for a while now and love all their offerings. In fact I organized a group order that's in the works now. But the price difference between the group order and the Ebay auction is only $5.

If there is anything I can do for you, to further you're costume, just give a yell.

Oh and you've been Recruited by the Galactica to defend the fleet from Baltar and the Cylon Armada. lol

The thing that got me Hooked on the show was the Mythology side that was used in the show also the Chariots of the Gods? book by Erich von Däniken which really had a Big influence with the show, Everything back then had to do with U.F.O.'s, Pyramidology, Ancient Astronauts ect. , But the show brought that all together for me and it was also a fun time for me.

Originally, what hooked me was the battles then the drama. When I first watched the 'movie' as a boy of 7-8 I was stunned by the attack on Caprica aided by Stu Phillips' music. But also Starbuck, he was one of my childhood heroes and a part of me still wishes I could be like him.
But mythology, like Orion24, has me hooked with BSG now amongst other things. "What if...life here...began out there?"

I can still remember sitting in the passenger seat of our '68 Monaco, no doubt without a seatbelt, listening to my brother and his friends regaling me with tales of BSG on their way home from the theatre. When the TV series pilot came on, I tuned in to see if the real thing lived up to my expectations.

It surpassed them.

When I was ten, I was caught up in the epic story of people you could identify with crossing the universe, fleeing for their lives, while searching for a future. However, if you'd asked me then what I liked about BSG, I would have grinned inanely and answered in one word, "Starbuck".

Don't get me wrong here, I like sci-fi, but it was the characterizations of BSG that really hooked me. It was their ability to overcome adversity, and to move forward with the tantalizing promise of hope. The characters were laser-proof, and it didn't matter what the universe threw at them, they'd chew it up, spit it out, and go back for seconds the following week. I loved those guys!

Years later when I watched the DVD's after a twenty year estrangement, that same feeling of hope, lightness, luminosity--not really sure how to describe it, but it felt good--suffused me again! It was a welcome time warp, spiraling me back into those feel-good emotions of my childhood. More than anything, that's why I'm still part of the BSG community.

this show was one of the few I looked forward to watching when I was a kid. Me and my mom would settle in with popcorn everyweek and watch. I loved the characters and the vipers. and even though I grew up with Star Trek and loved it as well. the Galactica and her crew were the Best thing going.

no matter what happens in the future Ill be able to watch this show and remember my mom and remember my childhood fondly.

This just goes to show that you will eventually click on something in CF, and facesmack the keyboard with "Why didn't I read this earlier?!"

I saw "Saga" in theaters when it first came out - it was the aftermath of Star Wars, and anything sci-fi was good. Then came the debut, and I was hooked. I recall being very upset when it was canceled - my first intro to the wonderful world of tv.

What grabbed me? Even at 11 or 12, what grabbed me was that these weren't Americans in funny clothes - the Colonials were different: different society, different history -- different everything.

Then came the ships...but not the gear. BSG never lived or died on the 'technobabalation of the week' - certain episodes aside - but they developed story and characterization...something other shows simply lack; my yardstick on this is "Would I want to drink/party with these people?" - for BSG, the answer is an overwhelming Yes! - I simply can't think of another show where I would want to knock back a few with pretty much every single person on the show -- not B5, not Farscape, not Firefly, not SAAB, not Stargate (neither movie nor shows), not Trek (in any incarnation), nor Star Wars...Understand, I would love to have a few with certain individuals from certain shows, but not the entire ensemble cast[s], as I would with BSG...even Baltar, before I "Han Solo'd" him.

I feel the best way to show how I feel about Battlestar is to comment on points that hit me from what others say. Plus I like talking Battlestar.

Forgive me, what was Dykstra known for prior to Battlestar?

Wow... you know about Jason of Star command and Salvage 1. Again, just wow...

That is a neat story teller's trick, letting actual time (the time between two episodes) give the feeling that Apollo and Starbuck are out there, sleeping, waiting till we see them again. I think I remember talking about that in the 2nd grade at recess.

What helped on this to a 2nd grader like I was that he was so kind to Boxey. I think Boxey really did give me a gateway to me, a kid, actually being there.

But Adama as I get older, I grow to appreciate what he was as a character more and more. He was crafty, firm, and commanding, yet fair. And something else I get more and more as time goes on, a warrior.

I think it took me a while to see that Galactica 80 was as bad as we came to know it as. I was just happy to see Vipers, blasters, and in the end we got to see Starbuck again. Loved that.

So I plan on writing to the other four pages of responses just picking out the responses that catch my eye. But the basics about me...

ABOUT JUBAL....
-- The First Time Around --

I was in kindergarden when Star Wars came out. I was in the 2nd grade when Battlestar Galactica came out. My dad is the cool influence in my life. He would watch these shows, and I liked them. My dad found Battlestar Galactica, and I watched it.

I was HUGE into C3P0 and R2D2, so I vaguely remember being a little confused when the shiney knights were not the good guys. Weird! I might have wondered where the good knights were, but in time I figured it out.

There were ships flying around, there were explosions, there were robots. I was happy. I was easy to please in the end. :P

I collected Battlestar Galactica cards, and I got really wrapped up in the show. My grades faltered and my parents took up my cards.

I played Battlestar with the kid next door (he had the Viper and Cylon that could fire... they were always slightly better off than us.) I remember being careful not to loose the bullets.

We played Star Wars on the play ground. I played C3P0 and Leia would be kissing on me. I would there saying waving my arms like C3P0...

"OH NO! Master Luke is over there... you don't want me!!" Looking back, she got her hair put in the side buns for me and showed up to kindergarden like that. And then she had a Star Wars party and invited me and other kids and the Star Wars figures were the party favors. She was so cute. I hope I was cool to her but she was afterall a girl... :P

So we continued to play Star Wars up through the 3rd glade, but we also played Battlestar Galactica. And I remember we used to mix them. Soon we were fighting over who would play Starbuck... until we remembered he got the girl. That was a slight deterent. I believe I played a Cylon a few times even. That was fun. I vaguely remember a Leia and Starbuck along with a Han Solo. I might have played Muffit a few times just for fun. :P And I believe the black kid amoung us got to play Boomer.

It was good to be a kid in the late 70's and early 80's, and I thank my dad for making all that fun possible (and for being patient with me most of the time when my creativity got the best of me.)

This is, in part, what makes BSG superior to SW, IMNSHO. In SW, the Rebels are rebels because they chose to be. Each and every one decided at some point to oppose the Emperor. In BSG, our heroes are there because of events they had no control over. Treachery and Fate have put them where they are, and they try to summon up all that is best in Mankind to overcome and survive. In this fashion, BSG is more akin, in some aspects, to Space:1999, than the others. The "Better angels of our nature" shines through in BSG, in ways it does not, either in SW, or even the original Trek.

I'm 26 years old. I was born in 1985... some six years after BSG left the airwaves. I don't have any fond memories of seeing it in theaters, or on re-runs, or anything like that.

It all began with some knock-off CD of collected Sci-fi soundtracks. I dunno where my dad found it or why he bought it but he was a sci fi fan. Maybe it was to please me when I was a kid, since I was a Trek fan and there was a trek track on it.

But so was a version of the Battlestar Galactica theme.

I had an active imagination so I knew "Battlestar" sounded cool. I poked around and eventually saw it. I became a fan of the original ever since.

...like TOS Star Trek I don't remember the cheesey elements. What I remember is the grand overtones of Biblical Mythology happening to a sister civilization of man far out in space. I remember the stand off between Adama and Apollo against count Iblis as he wore a pleasing face. I remember the craggy Commander Cain and the Battlestar Pegasus.

What I don't remember clearly my imagination fills in the blanks for, in between views. It also works when I have BSG playing in the background since it's uncommon nowadays for me to sit down and just watch a show completely with my undivided attention.

BSG is a marvelous seed of an idea that speaks of an epic premise. A civilization where robes were just as formal as buisnesswear today, and there's still great reverence for mysticism (which is largely dead by contemporary society today). A struggle in the night to keep the darkness from eclipsing the last group of man.

the 1979 presentation could do wonders in the hands of a modern audience dedicated to recreating the original ideas. There would be no place for child sidekicks and klunky daggit costumes, but there would be heroes taking hits but still standing because they have to, for the sake of the last group of humankind.

Earth? Not necessarily a desperate lie to keep the people occupied... but someplace that has to exist because belief tells us so.

And we know that belief is not always transient, since there has to be more to the Ship of Lights than just higher technology.

Even if my generation flocks to Moore's BSG as the galactica of their generation I'm still going to carry the torch of what the original could have been. Maybe someday I'll help in making the spiritual successor, and the idea can flourish as it should have.

Much of "my generation" would smile and say thanks for restoring our faith in the younger folks.

They are calling
From across the distant shore .


Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.
