There are those who believe.......the original series of Battlestar Galactica deserves a Continuation.
This site is proud to be one of many websites and organisations supporting a Continuation of Battlestar Galactica. Imagine a cult show returning with original cast members, leading a new generation of Colonial Warriors, in a battle against the odds to survive.....This belief is held by thousands of dedicated fans.....
Richard Hatch (Apollo) became a hero to the fanbase when he re-mortgaged his house to pay for a Continuation trailer entitled "The Second Coming" Many fans who saw it at conventions were blown away its intense and modern take on the original series. We saw in Richard someone who recognised we wanted an update - not the 70s haircuts and style....he really saw and understood what a major sci-fi fanbase wanted....sadly the 'men in suits' didn't.....
Then in 2001, we thought our dreams had come true, as Bryan Singer and Tom DeSanto began to create a Continuation series with the original cast returning. Sadly, September 11th happened, and the schedule was sent into dis-array. Bryan Singer had to move onto his next scheduled project, and Tom DeSanto later found out that the sets had been destroyed and the series shelved.
Fans never lost hope, and we were overjoyed to find out that another attempt at making a series was underway.....but our joy soon turned to disappointment when we heard that it was to be a Re-Make. The creators of the new show appealed to us to "give it a chance." Many of us did so, but were saddened by scenes which were not in the spirit of Battlestar Galactica. This was not what we campaigned for....this was not what we have held so dear for so long.
A strong, loyal and determined fanbase still remains committed to seeing the return of the original series of Battlestar Galactica as a Continuation set 25-30 years later, with the original cast and spirit.
So far we have achieved :
- Fans have secured the long term interest and promise from Tom DeSanto(X-men, Transformers etc) and various original cast members, to make a Continuation series or movie.
- Fans have produced major works of fan fiction, audio stories and fan films.
- Fans raised $12,000 of our own money to place ads in major publications (Daily Variety, Cinescape, Dreamwatch).
We will NEVER give up.......
