When the initial Cylon attack against the Twelve Colonies fails to achieve complete extermination of human life as planned, twin Number Ones (Cavils) embedded on Galactica and Caprica must improvise to destroy the human survivors.
Edward James Olmos
Edward James Olmos,
Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.
Although public showing at sci-fi conventions is allowed, licensing restrictions prevent this short from being televised or made available over the Internet. Another 1970s sci-fi cult classic, Space: 1999 (1975), was also the subject of a one-time-only revival in 1999 (Message from Moonbase Alpha (1999)). See more »
...about the possibility of making his trailer available on his website.
Though he said nothing explicit, Mr. Hatch hinted that he's working toward getting permission to post it for download.
He also responded to my email in only a few minutes--a record for a response from any "celebrity" type I've ever contacted. He comes across as a genuinely nice guy.
I still feel that Universal should have given him a credit as a "consulting producer"; at least some acknowledgement of his 20 year effort to revive BSG. At the very least, they could have paid his credit card debt he piled up making his trailer. Because without his two-decade quest, we fans wouldn't be enjoying the amazing "reimagined" version. At least he got two guest starring roles out of it. Perhaps it can kick start his career again.
But as is obviously even to those of us outside "the Biz", the only thing rarer in Hollywood than gratitude is loyalty.
While BSG II is becoming a masterpiece, I still hope one day a "continuation" can become reality. Perhaps as a fully cg-animated feature. That way there could be no confusion with Ronald Moore's series.
