Hello, fellow Galacticans (or whatever the politically correct term now is) Sorry I have been away for a while..health issues..but much frackin' better now! I must salute and applaud all members of this forum,
for choosing to honor one of the greatest sci-fi series of all time,although unfortunately ,short lived.
Excellent passion for a great series displayed here.The theme of the show was a slick"fugitive" style drama..who could resist the last Battlestar to survive the Cylon holocaust the peace treaty betrayal by the infamous futuristic Benedict Arnold..Baltar. Starring..Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict and a fellow stellar cast. And of course those electronic speaking ,floating one red-eyed ,chrome robotic Cylons .Lead of course by The Imperious Leader never actually seen except in publicity photos(what a waste of good make-up!)aAnd that perfect voice of Patric Macnee, as well as Jonathan Harris' voice of the henchman Lucifer. So many other things to talk about but I need to save some for discussion and feedback. Oh.......one question..when the Imperious Leader was shown on his shadowy throne..what was he holding in his hand?? It looked liked a flower or a pet lizard. Anybody know?
Great and proud to be here
By your Command my friends,
You know I would have to look more closely at the video...I could almost swear it was a pet of some sort!
There was some debate with the original as to whether the Cylons were actually fully cybernetic or a lizardlike species...I think Richard suggested in his books as well as "The Second Coming" that in fact there was organic tissue under that body armor...so maybe the pet was a baby?...always interesting things to think about...;-)
