Battlestar Galactica: New Movie in the Works — Is It What Fans Want?

February 28, 2009
Fans of Sci-Fi's popular Battlestar Galactica TV show are looking forward to the last episode, but they're also dreading the void that the series' absence will leave. Though the network is moving ahead with the prequel series Caprica, the traditional characters won't be part of it. News has now leaked out that a new movie is in the works. Curiously, it won't be based on the current series. Created by Glen A. Larson, Battlestar Galactica (BSG) centers around a group of refugees from a distant star system, searching for a mythological planet called Earth. The series features performers like Richard Hatch, Lorne Greene, Dirk Benedict, Herb Jefferson Jr., Laurette Spang, Terry Carter, John Colicos, Tony Swartz, Maren Jensen, Noah Hathaway, David Greenan, Patrick Macnee, Anne Lockhart, Sarah Rush, Felix Silla, and Jonathan Harris. After BSG's cancellation, an impressive write-in campaign took place, and Larson crafted a sequel series. Galactica 1980 is set several years after the original series. Several familiar characters were written out of the story to help control costs. Interestingly, only one of the stars who were included signed on. Greene returned but Benedict was unavailable and Hatch read the script and declined. Utilizing unused footage from the original series, Benedict's Starbuck character returned in a flashback episode but it wasn't enough to save the show. Production was halted midway through episode 11 and only 10 episodes of Galactica 1980 aired.
