This show is amazing, it has everything I like, all my favourite things from DS9, Andromeda and Terminator films 1 & 2, the cyborgs, the human interest/angst and turmoil and some smoochy bits as well.  I can`t wait to get the first series on DVD, I have the mini-series.

I already have several cast members autos and have met Aaron/chief Tyrel and Jamie/Apollo. :D  There are two events where we can meet Galactica`s crew in the UK this year, maybe we can meet up?

My call sign would have to be Dior, cos :love:  J`adore Dior. :love:
Doctor Who?

Damn you UKers being able to meet Galactica's crew!!

They should soooo have a Galactica con in Vancouver. I mean, it's where it's filmed for frak's sake!! :p

I have family in Vancouver (unlike in the UK, where I've never even been), so popping over to Van for a con is actually do-able. Plus if I'm supposedly there to visit family, my parents will pay for transportation! :D

Raina, there is a convention in Vancouver called Gatecon, held 25th July to 1st August.  The guests include Aaron Douglas (the party animal), Tahmoh Penikett, Kandyse Mclure, Alonso Oyarzen, Lorena Gale and Richard Hatch who are/were all in BSG.  There are lots of other guests from other shows as well.

:blush: Yes, I've been lurking about in the shadows while no one is here!!  I love both classic and new BSG!  No probs adjusting to new Starbuck.  I thought Katie Sackhoff (sp?) does a great job!!

Oh, and don't tell Mary Rose I've been hanging out here!!  *glances around surrepticiously before ducking back into the 'Cove*

I have been wondering, with all fo the survivors of the 12 colonies (a little under 50,000) one would think that there woudl be a few more black characters. I'm just wonderign where they are all hiding. They seem to hide when ever the camera comes around.

Yeah I noticed that... there seems to be a noticable lack of certain characterisics (sp?)  No black characters, no fat ones, no ugly ones, no disabled people.... unless they are all hiding on the one ship without a camera?? :p~

Wasn't there a black character on the prison ship? A guard maybe?

Yes. There was him, itís kind of funny that you can pick out each of the black characters because there is only one character that has appeared in more than one episode.

I just think it looks kind of odd. I would jsut think that the population of at least the millitary would be a little more diverse.

This could be that the writters never thought of this, or there are just not that many nonwhite actors that could play the charcters.

But I still think it looks wierd.

Ooooh I just thought of something:
BSG is filmed in Vancouver, and as far as I've seen, Greater Vancouver has very few black people.
