So the Sci-Fi channel has given the go-ahead for a BSG prequel “Caprica”. I’m glad we’ll see more of the world in which Galactica exists, but we probably wont see the Galactica herself because
B. It’s a character driven drama.
Here is what Producer Ronald D. Moore had to say:
“I’m thrilled with the chance to expand on the Galactica world and get deeper into the origins of the story we’ve been telling,” Moore said in a statement. “It’s also great to have a chance at doing a completely different kind of science fiction series, one that’s even more character-oriented and doesn’t rely on pyrotechnics to carry the story.”
But Ron, I LIKE PYROTECHNICS!
I know that the characters are really what drives Battlestar Galactica. But it’s because of what the characters are doing. They’re fleeing for their lives, building a new government and searching for earth.
But “Caprica” will be set 50 years ago, and I’m just afraid it’s going to be boring.
Oh and hey sci-fi guys? Can it with the prequels alright? there has yet to be a prequel made (with the exception of Episode III, barely) that didnt suck, bad.
Star Wars, The Star Trek “prequel series” Enterprise, which is why I’m wary of a BSG prequel series.
I’m not saying….. I’m just saying.
