Battlestar Galactica panels at Comic-Con

July 20, 2006 at 7:32 am | Events

This year’s Comic-Con will be another chance for many Galactica fans to see their favorite BSG cast members in person.

There are two panels of interest. On Thursday at 1:00 pm, Richard Hatch and Bear McCreary will give an informal talk about both Galactica series. And on Friday at 2:00 pm, Ron Moore and David Eick will join the cast for a one hour presentation.

I’ll be at Comic-Con this year — if any BSG fans want to meet up, drop me a line!

Join actor Richard Hatch (Tom Zarek, new BG series, original Captain Apollo), and special guests Bear McCreary (composer and arranger, new BG series), Dr. Kevin Grazier from JPL (science consultant, new BG series), and writer Brad Linaweaver (co-author BG novels) for a provocative discussion of Battlestar new and classic, along with an intro to Richard’s The Great War of Magellan graphic novel and role playing game with Blam Ventures and DG associates.

Who gets the Emmy? BSG or LOST?

Since Battlestar Galactica was completely shut out of the this year’s Emmy nominees, Entertainment Weekly is asking… which series most deserved a Best Drama nomination? LOST or BSG?

I’m a huge fan of both shows… so this is a tough one for me.
