"Kampfstern Galactica" (1978) - Originaltitel: "Battlestar Galactica" - ist ein Sahnebonbon aus mehreren gern gesehenen Zutaten wie "Star Wars" und "Bonanza"...
Die Galactica, ein Raumschiff von der Grösse einer Kleinstadt, treibt gefolgt von einem ganzen Konvoi bizarrer Raumschiffe, durch ein entferntes Sonnensystem. Alle fliehen vor der Zerstörung der menschlichen Rasse. Geführt von Commander Adama (Lorne Greene) haben sich die Überlebenden auf eine lange Reise durch das Weltall gemacht, um sich in einer anderen Galaxie, auf einem anderen Planeten neu anzusiedeln, dem Planeten Erde. Bevor sie dieses Ziel erreichen, müssen sie zahllose Kämpfe gegen ihre Vertreiber, die gefürchteten Zylonen, bestehen...
Die erste "Kampfstern Galactica" TV-Serie, wurde mit der "Galactica 1980" TV-Serie fortgesetzt...
Nach über 20 Jahren kehrte die Galactica zurück: Der Pilotfilm zur Serie "Kampfstern Galactica" (2004) erschien hierzulande am 2. Dezember 2004 auf DVD... Die "Battlestar Galactica" Mini-Serie (2003) läuft seit dem 1. Februar 2006 bei RTL II... Mit der 4. Staffel endet die TV-Serie...
Vierzig Jahre sind seit dem Ende der Zylonenkriege vergangen. Für die Menschen war es eine Zeit trügerischer Ruhe - aber jetzt sind die Zylonen, eine Rasse intelligenter Roboter, zurückgekehrt. Und sie sind stärker denn je: In einem gewaltigen Schlag greifen sie gleichzeitig alle Kolonien der Menschheit an und töten Milliarden. Die wenigen Überlebenden formieren sich zu einer Raumschiff-Flotte unter Führung von Commander William Adama. Adama ist der Befehlshaber der 'Galactica', eines eigentlich schon museumsreifen Kampfsterns. Jetzt ist die 'Galactica' das letzte verbliebene Großkampfschiff der kolonialen Streitkräfte und die letzte Hoffnung für die Flüchtlinge. Gemeinsam mit der neu gewählten Präsidentin Laura Roslin organisiert Adama den geordneten Rückzug und versucht, so viele Leben wie möglich zu retten. Unterstützt werden sie dabei unter anderem von Adamas Sohn Lee, genannt 'Apollo', und Kara 'Starbuck' Trace, der besten Pilotin der Flotte. Gemeinsam gelingt es ihnen, die Flüchtlingsflotte vor den Zylonen in Sicherheit zu bringen. Aber die Roboterwesen werden nicht ruhen, bis auch der letzte der 45.000 Überlebenden getötet wurde. Mit einem heimtückischen Überraschungsangriff wollen sie das Schiff der Präsidentin zerstören...

YouTube.com: Erster Clip aus "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome"...
It’s a case of bad news/good news for Battlestar Galactica fans who have been flocking to the Web to watch an unauthorized trailer for the long-in-the-works offshoot Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome over the past 36 hours. After lengthy deliberations, Syfy has decided not to go forward with the project, about the young years of William Adama, as a regular TV series. Blood & Chrome, initially envisioned as a Web series, was greenlighted as a two-hour TV pilot in October 2010. Because of intensive post-production, including special effects, the pilot was not delivered to Syfy until last November. As of January, Syfy president original programming Mark Stern was quoted as saying that he the network brass were "trying to figure out the economics right now" and that he hoped those would be figured out. Now, the network has passed on the project as a regular series but is looking to do it as a digital one, while airing the already produced pilot on the network as a movie. "Though the vision for "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" has evolved over the course of the past year, our enthusiasm for this ambitious project has not waned," Stern said in a statement today. "We are actively pursuing it as was originally intended: a groundbreaking digital series that will launch to audiences beyond the scope of a television screen. The 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date." [...]
Ein Mitschnitt des "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" Trailers, der auf der WonderCon gezeigt wurde, ist online...
Universal Pictures is closing a deal with John Orloff to write Battlestar Galactica, a feature based on the Glen Larson 1978 TV series that Bryan Singer has long wanted to direct. Orloff seems equally pumped. What is it about Battlestar Galactica that turns grown men into exuberant kids?
"I have wanted to write this movie since I was 12 years old, and built a Galactica model from scratch out of balsa wood, cardboard, old model parts and LEDs," Orloff told Deadline. "I love BSG, and I would pass on the job rather than frak it up."
Deal comes after Orloff scripted and exec produced Anonymous, the Roland Emmerich-directed film that Sony Pictures will platform, a drama that takes the position Shakespeare didn’t really write his great works. Orloff also scripted Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and the Angelina Jolie-starrer A Mighty Heart, and was Emmy nominated for HBO’s Band of Brothers mini. He’s also attached to write Truckers for DreamWorks Animation. He’s repped by CAA.
This finally gets off the ground a movie that Singer has been interested in doing for at least a decade. The fanboy sites have been going warp speed with excitement after Singer indicated that Battlestar Galactica was squarely in his future once Warner Bros killed his Excalibur remake (Deadline told you during the summer Singer’s project and another King Arthur movie Guy Ritchie developed with John Hodge were over when Warner Bros paid $2 million for David Dobkin’s Arthur & Lancelot spec). With Orloff in the fold, Battlestar Galactica can now make progress. Singer tends to wait until these projects are just right, so it remains to be seen how quickly this one goes into production. But getting an A-list writer is surely a good sign. Singer’s currently directing Jack the Giant Killer, the dark revisionist fairy tale for New Line. [...]
"Caprica", the television series prequel to the hit reboot of "Battlestar Galactica", has been cancelled.
The show debuted in January of 2010 and was slated for a 13 episode season. With five unaired episodes remaing, Syfy will delay broadcast until an unnannounced date in early 2011.
"We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for 'Caprica' and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. "Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, 'Caprica' has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season."
Despite the series' cancellation, Syfy will still move forward with the recently announced "Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome" will is also planned as a prequel to the network's first series, set during the 10th year of the Cylon war.
Syfy has given the greenlight to "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" from Executive Producer David Eick, it was announced today by Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. Universal Cable Productions will produce the 2-hour pilot with Syfy utilizing cutting edge CGI and virtual technology.
"Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20's and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet, the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.
"The 'Galactica' universe as re-imagined by Ron Moore and David Eick is rich with possibilities and backstory," said Mark Stern. "We jumped at the chance to revisit the William Adama character and explore this exciting chapter in the BSG narrative which falls between the events of the original series and the prequel, 'Caprica,' currently airing on Syfy."
"While maintaining the themes of politics, social propaganda, and the timeless question: what does it mean to be human? - 'Blood & Chrome' will also return us to the authentic, relentless depiction of combat and the agony and ecstasy of human-Cylon war, which was the hallmark of 'Battlestar Galactica's' early seasons," said David Eick.
Michael Taylor wrote the teleplay from a story by Eick, Taylor and Bradley Thompson & David Weddle.
Universal Pictures has set Bryan Singer to direct and produce a feature version of "Battlestar Galactica," confirming a report on the Hitfix website.
The development is something of a surprise because the most prevailing rumor had Singer flirting with the idea of returning to the X-Men series by taking the reins of "X-Men: First Class," which focuses on the younger mutant characters seen fleetingly at the Xavier Institute of Higher Learning. [...]
"Battlestar Galactica" appears to be on a fast track and sources said that Singer could be looking at a $10 million paycheck to sign on to the film.
[...] it is clear that Singer will put his own creative stamp on the project as the studio indicates that the film will be "a complete re-imagination."
Glen Larson is aboard to produce. [...]
Wie HitFix.com meldet, scheint Bryan Singer noch immer Interesse an einem neuen "Battlestar Galactica"-Kinofilm zu haben...
[...] Universal Pictures is planning to turn the TV series Battlestar Galactica into a feature film with series creator Glen A. Larson being lined up to script and produce it.
We were informed that the film will be based on the original BSG series from 1978-79 rather than the recent reboot from Sci Fi Channel. The story followed a band of humans who were the only survivors of a devastating attack on their colonial homeworld by the vicious cybernetic race known as the Cylons. The survivors, led by Commander Adama, embark on a journey through space aboard the military vessel Battlestar Galactica to find refuge on a distant planet called Earth.
Battlestar Galactica has been in cinemas before. Re-edited versions of television episodes were released theatrically: Battlestar Galactica (1978), Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack (1978), and Conquest of the Earth (1980).
A Universal spokesperson refused to comment on rumored projects before ultimately denying it; we were later able to confirm our scoop independently. [...]
Bei IESB gibt es ein Video-Interview...
Jane Espenson, who wrote the upcoming movie Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, said that the telefilm will retell the initial story of the SCI FI Channel series, but from the perspective of the Cylons, and that it will take advantage of revelations that will come in the upcoming new episodes of the show's fourth and final season. [...]
Sci Fi Channel has greenlit "Caprica," the much-anticipated prequel to hit series "Battlestar Galactica."
"Caprica" will star Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales, Paula Malcomson and Polly Walker, and will be set 50 years prior to "Galactica's" seminal attack on human civilization by those dreaded 'droids the Cylons. Family-drama-themed series will focus on the Earthlike planet of Caprica as two rival families deal with, among other topical issues, the broader implications of their society's emerging artificial intelligence technology sector.
Produced by Universal Cable Prods., "Caprica" will be exec produced by "Galactica" masterminds Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, along with Remi Aubuchon ("24"). The pilot was co-written by Aubuchon and Moore and directed by Jeffrey Reiner ("Friday Night Lights.")
Having already produced a two-hour backdoor pilot, Sci Fi is aiming for an early 2010 bow for the series, with production starting around the middle of next year, probably in Vancouver, where both "Galactica" and the spinoff's pilot were shot.
" 'Battlestar Galactica' was absolutely our flagship show. It put us on the map and helped transform the perception of the network," said Sci Fi prexy Dave Howe, noting that the cabler hopes to draw a broader audience to a series it sees as more compelling family drama than "space opera."
"We want people to come to this who have never heard of 'Battlestar Galactica,' " he added. "I think, because ('Galactica's') backdrop was space and spaceships, there was a barrier to entry for some viewers. 'Caprica' has none of that. It's an intense family drama set on an Earthlike planet, in the near future, speaking to a lot of the ethical dilemmas that we as a human race are going to have to face very shortly."
"Galactica" has had its fourth and final season in the can for several months, with the final 10 episodes culminating their run March 20. A two-hour movie adaptation, "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan," is slated for early summer.
Mark Stern, original programming topper for Sci Fi and Universal Cable Prods., says waiting until 2010 to bow the prequel will give the producers time to regroup the core of "Galactica's" writing staff, which has largely scattered to other shows.
"One of the other things we have going for is, this is one of the first shows we've done in conjunction with our new cable studio," Stern added. "There will be a lot of coordination between the studio and the network, not just on production, but how the series is launched, as well."
Eine "Battlestar Galactica" Season 4 Promo ist online...
SCI FI Channel today announced an all-new "Battlestar Galactica" special event, set to air in 2009 following the conclusion of the series and then released on DVD by Universal Studios Home Entertainment shortly thereafter. Directed by series star Edward James Olmos and written by "Battlestar Galactica's" Jane Espenson, the two-hour event will begin shooting in Vancouver at the end of this summer. The cast includes Michael Trucco, Aaron Douglas and Dean Stockwell, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
Starting before the events of the miniseries, our story focuses on familiar characters including Cylon Number One, known as Cavil (Stockwell), Resistance Leader Sam T. Anders (Trucco) and Chief Galen Tyrol (Douglas). In the beginning, the Cylons had a plan, but it didn't account for one thing: survivors. During the chaotic aftermath of the destruction, two powerful Cylon agents struggle with plots and priorities on the human ships that got away, and among the resistance fighters who were left behind.
The series is from Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.
The final 10 episodes of "Battlestar Galactica" will begin airing on SCI FI Channel in 2009.

[...] There will be another set of Webisodes that will link the first 10 episodes of Season 4 and the second half of the fourth and finale season.
Even bigger news: More "Battlestar Galactica" TV movies may get made.
As Galactica Sitrep noted Thursday, an internet radio show, The Doctor and Mrs. Who, reported last night that up to three "Battlestar Galactica" TV movies may get made later this year. Several sources at the show confirm that those films are indeed being discussed right now. [...]
Esai Morales has joined the cast of Sci Fi Channel's two-hour "Caprica" pilot.
The project, from Universal Media Studios, is a prequel to the network's "Battlestar Galactica." Morales will play Joseph Adama, the father of William Adama (played in "Galactica" by Edward James Olmos), who one day will take command of the Battlestar Galactica.
Joseph is described as a deeply passionate man with a strong sense of justice -- and someone you wouldn't want as your enemy.
Paula Malcomson was previously cast as a surgeon who works as a double agent. [...]

"Battlestar Galactica: Revisited" (10pm) will serve up the essential information on the series' past three seasons, providing the uninitiated with an introduction to the characters, relationships and spine-tingling drama that have captured the imagination of audiences around the world. [..]
Wie Variety.com meldet, wird "Battlestar Galactica" in einigen ausgewählten US-Kinos gezeigt...
The Sci Fi Channel, in partnership with Microsoft, will unspool a special two-hour episode of "Battlestar Galactica" in movie theaters in eight major cities two weeks before it premieres on the network.
The episode, "Razor," kicks off the final 22-hour season of the series. The theater showings, which are free, take place Nov. 12 in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas and Seattle.
In the Los Angeles area, four theaters will participate, with each screening the episode twice, beginning at 7 p.m., to accommodate the crowds. The theaters are in Palmdale, Huntington Beach, Orange and Ventura.
"Galactica" moviegoers will have to be 17 and older because the series is rated TV-14, and Microsoft's role-playing videogame "Mass Effect," a sponsor of the screenings, is rated mature. [...]

[...] According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming fourth season of Sci Fi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" will be its final one after all.
After months of speculation, the show's producers will make the announcement at a press conference Friday.
Ending "Battlestar" with the upcoming 22-episode fourth season was a creative decision made by the show's executive producers Ronald Moore and David Eick.
"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and finally, an end," Eick and Moore said in a statement Thursday. "Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there - we're going out with a bang."
The fourth and final season of "Galactica" will kick off in November with "Razor," an extended two-hour episode, with the rest of the season slated to run beginning in early 2008.
Sci Fi's executive vp original programming Mark Stern said the channel's brass "respect the producers' decision to end the series."
"We are proud to have been the home of this groundbreaking show," he said. "We have always known that Ron and David had a plan for 'Galactica' and trust that fans can look forward to a truly amazing final season."
For months, Sci Fi had dispelled rumors about "Battlestar" ending its run after the fourth season.
A couple of weeks ago, the show's star Edward James Olmos was quoted saying that the upcoming batch of episodes were definitely the last ones. Sci Fi issued a statement denying such a decision had been made. "I promise you that when Ron and I make a decision about 'Galactica's' future, we'll let you know," Eick said at the time.
SCI FI has renewed its Peabody-winning signature series Battlestar Galactica. The Channel will bring the critically-acclaimed series back for a minimum of 13 hours. Production will resume this summer with an eye toward a January 2008 premiere. [...]
"While we never had any doubt that SCI FI would get behind a fourth season of Battlestar Galactica, it's thrilling to finally make it official, and for Ron and I to continue using this great genre to investigate the darker corners of society, politics and humanity," stated Executive Producer David Eick.

Battlestar Galactica entsteht beim australischen Entwickler Auran Games. Es bietet Einzel- und Mehrspieler-Modi, in denen man aus der Ich-Perspektive an Weltraumschlachten als Pilot der Menschen oder Zylonen teilnimmt.

[...] Over on the appropriately named Geek Monthly, they’ve got a story on how Ron Moore is planning to do a direct-to-DVD "Battlestar Galactica" movie.
"If it goes forward, the two hour telefilm will shoot in March during the series hiatus and prior to the commencement of production on the series fourth season in June. While there is no story for the telefilm at present, plans are afoot to come up with a screenplay that doesn’t step on existing continuity for the series, but utilizes most of its existing sets. There is also speculation the telefilm will somehow tie into the mythology for the Galactica spin-off series, Caprica, which has not been officially greenlit by SciFi Channel", tells the site.
Yeah, apparently "Battelstar" has had a big drop-off of late, in terms of viewers, so the direct-to-video movie idea might be the network’s way of getting rid of the series - apparently a fourth series hasn’t been decided on yet by the network - as we know it, but continuing it on DVD. [..]

Serienerfinder Ronald D. Moore hat sich gegenüber Reuters für die Entwicklung eines Battlestar Galactica Videospiels ausgesprochen; die Science Fiction Serie wird in Deutschland auf RTL2 ausgestrahlt.
Moore überlegt, sich eingehender mit einem Videospiel zu befassen, um die Franchise zu erweitern. So denkt er z.B. über ein Rollenspiel mit Internet-Funktionen nach, vieles ist aber noch unklar: Das Spiel könnte während der ersten Staffel handeln oder auch etwas völlig Neues sein und soweit von der Serie weggehen, weshalb man sie sich eigentlich vorrangig anschaut.

SCI FI Channel has added Lucy Lawless to the cast of its white-hot original series Battlestar Galactica. Lawless will reprise her role as D'Anna Biers in a 10-episode arc in the show's eagerly anticipated third season, which begins production in Vancouver in April.
Originally appearing in the episode "Flight of the Phoenix," D'Anna Biers arrived on the Galactica as an investigative journalist doing an expose on alleged crew misconduct that resulted in the death of four civilians. Surprisingly, her documentary generated sympathy and respect for the battlestar's crew - healing the growing rift between the civilian and military populations within the fleet. Eventually, the audience learns that D'Anna was actually one of the deadly human-looking Cylon agents, who was sent to Galactica on a covert reconnaissance mission.
Lawless' second guest appearance will air on Friday, February 24, in the episode, "Downloaded," which gives viewers their first real glimpse into the Cylon world. The second half of season 2 of Battlestar Galactica premiered January 6.

SF Wire meldet...
SCI FI Channel has ordered a second season of its hit series Battlestar Galactica, which has aired five episodes of its first season of 13 episodes. Details of the renewal - including which cast members will return, how many episodes will be produced and when the second season will commence - were still being worked out at press time.
Battlestar Galactica has been a ratings winner for SCI FI since its Jan. 14 premiere. The latest episode, Feb. 4's "You Can't Go Home Again," scored the show's best ratings yet, with 3.2 million viewers.
For the show's second season, creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore previously told SCI FI Wire that he has already been working on as many as six new scripts to resolve the multiple cliffhangers that will end season one. Moore added that he wants to delve deeper into the show's religious themes and open up the Cylon world a bit more in the coming season. Moore continues to post his thoughts on a personal blog on SCIFI.COM. Battlestar Galactica airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, part of the channel's SCI FI Fridays lineup.
