Now Playing: Interview with Ron Moore, Pt. 3

October 9, 2005 at 11:16 am | Battlestar News, Cast & Crew

Now Playing has just published the third part of its interview with BSG series creator Ron Moore. (Links to part one, part two, and a special video interview with the cast.)

Highlights include the potential of more Caprica-based episodes, discussion about bringing original BSG cast members back to the show, and this telling quote about the chances for finding Earth:

“Searching for Earth… I think that will always be part of the show. I think it is one of the fundamental ideas of what the show is,” says Moore. “I always wanted this to be Battlestar Galactica, just a different version of it. There are certain things that make it Battlestar Galactica and without them it would be something else. It’s an aircraft carrier in space, shepherding a bunch of civilian ships, and looking for a place called Earth. That is kind of the logline of the series. Now, that doesn’t mean they can’t find Earth. That doesn’t mean you can’t find Earth and then have problems, or do some different kind of storytelling. But I don’t know that I ever really want to yank the fundamentals away from the show. You never say never. You want to be able to say, ‘Well, wait a minute, we’ve got this great space station idea. Let’s do that for a season.’ I mean, you never know. But basically, I don’t think so.”

Apologies for the hiatus

Eventful

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working insanely hard on releasing the newest version of Eventful, so updates to Galacticaa have been sparse.

The funny thing is that the code name for the new Eventful website was actually “Apollo”. Primarily, the code name was an allusion to two things: the Apollo moon landings and the Arrow of Apollo from BSG.

So this probably makes Eventful one of the first software products to have a BSG-inspired name!
