There Will Be a BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Reunion at San Diego Comic-Con!
With San Diego Comic-Con just around the corner, we are going to start seeing the amazing lineup of events and panels that will be there this year. If you are a fan of Battlestar Galactica, then do I have some great news for you! The SyFy Channel is planning a full on BG reunion! Here is a portion of Syfy’s press release with the announcement:
A frakking great BATTLESTAR GALACTICA reunion! With creator Ron Moore and cast from the hit series.
The ultimate sci-fi debate throwdown! Moderated by John Hodgman, the biggest names in the sci-fi universe duke it out over the most influential moments, milestones and people in the genre’s history. In “SYFY Hosts the Great Debate,” our expert panel will have the final word (or not!) on important topics like: “Star Trek” or “Star Wars”? Did Han or Greedo shoot first? And just who was the most influential captain of all time?
If you have the opportunity to make it to SDCC and you are a BG fan, you have to go to this. It's hard to believe that it's been eight years since the series ended. I went to the 10-year Firefly reunion and I am not ashamed to tell you that I laughed and I cried. It was one of the most memorable panels that I have been to in my near decade of going to SDCC.
If you are interested in what else Syfy has to offer this year at Comic-Con, here is the rest of the press release.
