Sit tight nuggets! SciFi intends to frak with you.

Though we all know now that that the next season is the last for Battlestar Galactica – apparently the season may well be split over the course of not one but two calendar years (2008 and 2009).

This is what i would call adding insult to injury.

Ok so the show is ending – that’s both good and bad. True diehard fans will watch no matter what. But the casual fan isn’t going to bother. The current 10 month gap between the last season and the next is bad enough..but SciFi channel that FAN HATING BASTION of non-creativity is going to do it to us again.

But what can we do? Petition the network? Boycott them?

i DON’T know….i guess as long as SciFi Network’s parent NBC Universal is making money they don’t really care.

wow.

Since the first hardcover edition in the 30th anniversary series we’ve seen the BEST that the expanded universe has to offer. I’ve been buying these since the first one and i just got Endgame (Volume 6) this weekend (haven’t read it yet).

I didn’t get these issues (the ones included in this hardcover collection) at the first go-around and getting some of these stories in the trade paperback has been challenging. My local selling luckily still had on for me when i came in (thnx). Long story short (and full review to come). The last days of the Jedi before Palapatine’s empire in stunning detail. The paper and construction of this book is FANTASTIC, it’s rare that anyone raves about the construction of a comic but the way that Dark Horse has put this hardcovers together is nothing short of amazing.

Witness the untold stories of the Jedi who took a last stand against Emperor Palpatine in the moments during, and immediately after, the events in Revenge of the Sith!

Quinlan Vos wages a battle of impossible odds against his own troops to protect his loved ones, Jedi Master Kai Huddora takes a terrified Padawan into his charge after her own master falls to Order 66, Dass Jennir finds himself in league with a band of rebels he’d led attacks against only days before, and a brave few Jedi will plot to topple Sith rule-by setting a trap for the newly unveiled Darth Vader!

Battlestar Galactica Razor : 8 webisodes on the way! July 16, 2007

Remember last year’s Battlestar Galactica Resistance Webisodes?

They’re BAAAAACCK.

In advance of the two-hour movie Battlestar Galactica: Razor on Nov. 24, SCI FI will air an eight-week series of exclusive mini-sodes, between two and three minutes in length, beginning in October. The promotional shorts will provide a backdrop to events that will take place in the rest of the fourth season of Battlestar. Written by Michael Taylor and directed by Wayne Rose and Felix Alcala, the shorts will take place during the original Cylon War and center on a young William Adama (played by Nico Cortez), who discovers a dangerous Cylon weapon that will come to haunt him and his crew 40 years later. The mini-sodes will be available on SCIFI.COM after they debut on the network.

Neat. Though at 3 minutes each they will be painful to watch one at a time.

If you haven’t seen the trailer for Razor yet check it out, it’s frakkin cool.

Battlestar Galactica Game coming to XB0X360 and PC July 14, 2007

First there was a PS2 game which wasn’t too bad at all ..then there was the unofficial (but really great) Beyond the Red Line Game.

Now it looks like a small Battlestar Galactica game is coming the XBOX360 – but don’t worry about having to rush out to your local retailer to buy it..it’s so dinky you’ll just be able to download it from the Live Arcade.

Sign up to defend the Galactica, or play as the ruthless Cylons as they seek to remove the human menace from existence. Take part in enormous multiplayer space battles – up to 8 players online – or play through the single-player campaign.

Overall if early reports are to be believed – it could be a pretty decent arcade shooter.

Battlestar Galactica Razor Preview July 11, 2007

SciFi showed a 30 second preview of the upcoming movie Battlestar Galactica Razor – set to air in November.

AWESOME.

War Is Our Imperative. So We Will Fight – Admiral Cain in Razor.

I see this movie based on the trailer – as a copycat approach of the Babylon 5 movie ‘In the Beginning’ (which was awesome too). Originally we thought that this movie would be all about Battlestar Pegasus, but it looks like its really about the origin of the war itself – which got an ok treatment in the mini-series- but will get a different viewpoint in the Razor movie.

Without any further ado..here’s the trailer that aired last night on Scifi. Enjoy.

Battlestar Galactica Unity – review July 4, 2007

unity.jpgWith no new Battlestar Galactica on TV for a few months yet…it’s time to turn to the paperback fiction episodes.

Battlestar Galactica Unity by Steven Harper is one such paperback episode (as is Sagitarius is Bleeding which we’ve previously reviewed). Unity is better.

Unity occurs during the period when Sharon is pregnant and being held as a prisoner on board Galactica. Galactica is being attacked by Cylon Basestars and Raiders which ultimately results in the destruction of the Basestar but an escape pod gets away which Starbuck discovers and brings aboard Galactica. Turns out to be a famous Colonial singer.

When the singer give a performance on the ship he ends up spreading a ‘virus’ . Long story short some religious zealots later and it all works out.

While plague type shows in SciFi are common, the BSG universe with Cylons (Cylons who think they are humans like Starbuck) and the various colonial religions add a real interesting touch that make this a solid and enjoyable read.

Though it wasn’t on TV, it had all the elements of BSG episode and easily would make a really good episode.

Battlestar Galactica – Beyond The Red Line Video Game June 5, 2007

What’s a FRAKKING BSG fan to do?

The show is ending next year and even worse there are no new episodes to be had for months yet…what to do what to do.

PLAY THE FRAKKING VIDEO GAME of course.

Battlestar Galactica – Beyond The Red Line (BTRL) is a FREE game that is now available as a Demo for PC/MAC/LINUX users. It’s a fan effort and is not officially endorsed by BSG’s copyright owners.

In an interview with the BTRL developers one of them admits that they have not made any attempt to contact Ron Moore or NBC Universal directly regarding the project.

In choosing to develop a game based on “Battlestar Galactica” we are making use of the intellectual property of NBC Universal. We walk a very thin legal line by using this material as inspiration for our work, which is why our project is free to the public. The team has no desire to profit from this labor of love, but rather to bring a new and enjoyable “Galactica” experience to fans of the television series and video games alike.

If that is not proof positive that SciFi and Ron Moore are a bit out too lunch I don’t know what is. There is so much demand/interest in BSG, they could easily make good money with a solid game like BTRL, but they are too busy deciding on when to cancel the series instead of giving fans more of what they want.

ShowMeSciFi will have more on BTRL soon..but for now check out this trailer…oh and don’t forget to download and try out the came yourself! ()

Battlestar Galactica Season 4 WILL BE THE LAST no and ifs or buts about it June 1, 2007

I don’t know why SciFi channel hates its fans so much.

We’ve known for some time that season 4 could be the last one, but instead of just admitting it, the show’s producers and SciFi have FRAKKED US OVER making us think there is hope.

THAT’S JUST UNFAIR.

“This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and, finally, an end,” Eick and Moore said in a statement Thursday. “Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end, and we’ve decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there — we’re going out with a bang.”

I don’t have a problem with the show ending. I do have a problem with this on again off again bs. Considering how poorly SciFi has managed to market and schedule this show over the past year you’d think they were trying to lose money and purposefully undercut the potential success of BSG…maybe it’s all just a cylon plot afterall.

What happens when New Cylons Find Old Cylons? April 6, 2007

Just because SciFi network has no new episodes of Battlestar Galactica for another 8 months doesn’t mean that their aren’t ‘new’ BSG stories being told.

The Battlestar Galactica comic series is one such outlet

The current thread in Dynamite Entertainments main BSG #7 has a wickedly cool plot line where the fleet finds an ancient antebellum Cylon fleet (that is pre-cylon war cylons – the cylons that the colonies used to fight earch other at one point and look like te ones from the classic series – By Your Command – and all that..)that ends up taking commands from Adama. He then uses the old cylons to fight the new ones.

Why can’t the TV show do stuff like that?

I guess it’s cause Mr.Moore and crew are too tied up worrying about big moral issues and frakking around with character issues rather than trying to whoop it up with some good cylon on cylon smackdown action.

AT this point, with the show off the air for 8 months, Dynamite’s BSG comics series really is the BEST BSG ticket around.

Oh and if you ever doubted that Starbuck is a Cylon…don’t.  Just check out the cover (above) for issue number 7!
