"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

I have the sad duty to inform that Mr. Richard Hatch,the original Capt. Apollo,and the anarchist Tom Zarek, Has passed away this day.

I order ship's lights to be dimmed 90% in his memory.

I ask you all to keep him in your hearts,while keeping the faith.

May the lords of kobol guide him to the promised land that he worked so hard to make real for all of us.

So say we all.

ALL HANDS:
Today is the 38th Anniversary of the Debut of what we have come to Revere and Follow as BSG.
In the Same Evening as the Prime Time Emmys,The Pilot Episode, 'Saga of A Star World' was launched,Beginning the Odyssey of A Group of Humans,Who Survived A Holocaust Attack by A Machine Race,and are Now Searching for their Brothers who Inhabit A Planet Known as Earth.
This Saga was Presented to Us by Writer/Producer Glen A. Larson, Who Conceptualized the Story at the Time Star Trek was Being Birthed; It would be Another Ten Years Later,along with A Film called Star Wars,that would Bring the Saga to Television.
Sadly, Mainly because of (then) High Production Costs, It only Lasted One Season; They Attempted to Re-Ignite The Series Two Years Later; That Effort Failed.
Since then,The Legion of Fans has Been Growing, thanks to Syndication,and Video Tape,Along with Comic Books,Novels, and Other Fan Efforts; In the '90s There have been Calls to Bring BSG Back; There was a Plan by FOX TV To Bring it Back to the Small Screen in the Early '00s; When they Dropped the Ball, it was picked up by the Sci-Fi Channel and Writer Ronald D. Moore; He Proceeded to Give the Saga a more Grittier and Realistic Look.
The Rest is History; The Battlestar Fan Club was Born just Before the Rebirth,and has Provided A Base to which we all can Express our Support and Fandom.
Today, We owe Honor and Gratitude to the Late Mr. Larson, For giving us A Compelling Story of A Fight for Survival,to which we all can add our stories to,and become A Part of.
SO SAY WE ALL!
Trireme Actual
