    As much as I would love to see continuation of Battlestar Galactica with the old cast on either big or small screen, I doubt such will ever come to fruition.
    While many emerged voicing displeasure with the refashioned version and spinoffs, sequels and continuations–that should give an idea as to how much I have paid attention to the new versions–if it gets people to talk about the old version and prompt a whole slew of books and the like, then perhaps that is a good thing.
