Moore commentary links

Hey folks. I've had a few conversations on both the Wiki and Reddit regarding the seemingly lost nature of the Ron D. Moore commentary tracks, which naturally cannot be listened to by Streaming fans but can by DVD collectors. I've made sure to list all surviving links for quick access to enjoyers. Quick note -- Moore didn't start recording until late into Season 1 so the first 8 episodes are listed for the sake of clarity. At times there are special commentaries, or are for a particular version of an episode, and will be noted accordingly.

    • 1.1 Season 1

Image updates

I've installed a new feature so when you upload an image to the wiki you will be pressing a button to assign it to a category automatically. If there's any problems with the feature, be sure to alert me! I've also obtained a Blu-ray drive for my PC - finally - so I'll be able to take higher res images of the show soon.

Movie update

As some may recall, the Battlestar Galactica movie has been in development hell on and off since 2009, owing to accusations against Bryan Singer and a further four-year stall under Francis Lawrence (not sure why there). Universal has tried once more to do a film, and with Simon Kinberg now attached to write, direct and produce.

While the earlier proposed films were loose remakes of the 1978 Saga of a Star World film, we have yet to know if Kinberg will stay with that idea or pitch a film tying with Esmail's new TV show.

Ron Moore podcast links

For the convenience of new users who want to listen to podcasts while doing re-runs, here are Ron D. Moore's original podcasts of the show as they aired. Unlike Galacticast, he goes deep into the production side of things, such as re-writes. Take note that he only started doing it midway into Season 1, so the episodes before Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down weren't recorded.

  • Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down
  • The Hand of God
  • Colonial Day
  • Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part Ⅰ
  • Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part Ⅱ
  • Scattered
  • Valley of Darkness
  • Fragged
  • Resistance
  • The Farm

Updated on New Battlestar production!

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, producers Sam Esmail and Michael Lesslie has talked about his work on NBC's new Battlestar Galactica series to be made for their Peacock streaming service. Here's notes to summarise:

  • Sam Esmail is a big fan of the 2004 series and respects Ron D. Moore's science-fiction writing style, but admits to not being good at hard sci-fi. This was why Michael Lesslie was made Showrunner instead.
  • The series will have modern analogues akin to how the Miniseries drew inspiration from 9/11  -"what do we say about today's world". Esmail also loves The Little Drummer Girl and how Michael Lesslie did an interesting story that had political elements but didn't stop the story in its tracks.
  • The series is intended t…

Sorry for limited editing

Hi guys. Just wanted to say that due to problems with hanging service provider I haven’t been able to be heavily active since the start of the month. Long story short, I’m using phone data until a fibre optic cable gets hooked to the telegraph poll. That’s scheduled for Monday 25th. In the meantime feel free to list any problem reports in the comments section so I have an idea what to fix when I have time.

New Battlestar announced

The Battlestar Galactica Wiki will soon be expanded by yet another addition to the multiverse. NBC's new streaming service will come with a reimagined Battlestar Galactica TV series.

Information is scarce, but what we do know is that it is not within the continuity of the BSG'78-Galactica 1980 continuity, or the Miniseries-BSG'04-Caprica-Blood and Chrome continuity. It being a new universe was confirmed by Sam Esmail.

How do military serial number work in the colonial fleet?

so I have been wanting to get some colonial military tags made, to go with my command uniform, and BDU's. and i want to get the serial numbers athintic as i can; does anyone know the rythem or ryme to them.

for example, i was thinking that adama's tags begain with a 2, as if perahps caprican citizens who join the calonial fleet, start with a 2, (as in an indication of what planet in 12 they came from. then looking at Dee's serial number which begins with the number 3, which kinda makes sense, as she is sagiarun, and would be one number next to caprica, as in the zodiac sag, and cap, are next to each other. but then noticed that saul is also a 2 and he is from Aeralon, so that didn't mactch up, accept for perhaps the fact that he joined arou…

Staff blog: Editor update

I've removed a line of broken coding from MediaWiki:Common.js that was preventing users from editing articles in Visual Editor. It's been there a while but since I normally edit via the AutoWikiBrowser I wasn't aware it was anything other than an occasional glitch. I'm editing perfectly fine in test-mode, so within the next day or so the update will available to everyone.

Under new management

Hi folk, Forerunner. I'm one of the new admins over at the Battlestar Galactica Wiki, along with MechQueste. As many are aware, this wiki has been administratively-inactive for several years, leaving it unable to truly take advantage of the large Battlestar Galactica fandom - especially with the demise of Battlestar Wiki. We hope to change that in coming time.

Any user requests can be submitted as blog comments underneath.
