"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."

OK People, Get those Sugarplums out of your Heads and Listen up!

We Have An important Escort Mission Today; We Are Escorting A VIP to the Raven; He Carries MANY Names,But his Callsign is 'Kringle'. He will Be Bringing Cargo to the Raven; He will be Flying A Retired First Cylon War Raptor,Which He has Added Extra Towing Power in Front of It; The Lead Tow will Have A Red Running light on it's Nose, So, DO NOT SHOOT! The Raptor,Reportedly Painted Red in Color, Will Be Accompanied by Five Colonial Shuttles.

Our Job is to Intercept this Convoy, And Escort it to A Safe Landing on the Raven; All Eyes will Be Out For Toasters!

    Skids Up In Twenty From Port Flight Deck;   Dismissed!

                              IN MEMORIAM:

                             GLEN   A.   LARSON

A Sad Day: This Morning, it was Announced that the Creator of all we Know and Revere as Battlestar Galactica, Has passed Away.

He was a Magnificent,and Prolific Writer and Producer of Not only BSG,but Many other Memorable TV Shows including The Six Million Dollar Man,Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and Knight Rider.

He Had Come up with the Concept for BSG in the 1960s,When Star Trek was just Beginning to find its legs; After the First 'Star Wars' film Hit the Big Screen in 1977, Mr. Larson Finally was Able to Bring the Saga Of A Star World to Fruition; Despite A Legal Battle with 20th Century Fox Over Alledged Plagarisim, The Tale Of A Rag-Tag Fugitive Fleet Became A World-Wide Sensation; It was unfortunate that it only Lasted one Season,Due in part to it's Expensive Production Costs.

However,Those of Us Who remember The Struggle of Humans from Another Galaxy to find their Brothers Here On Earth, Never Lost Faith That The Saga Would be Revived And Retold; It has Been Kept Alive Thru Conventions, Novels, Comic Books, Fan Fiction, And other Institutions to Make Sure this Compelling Story Is Never Forgotten.

One such Institution is Right Here: The Battlestar Fan Club, Where We All can Play in the Universe that Mr. Larson Created; And One Such Fan,Mr. Ronald D. Moore,A Writer for Star Trek, Has Taken BSG to Another Level, And Has Shown the Sci-Fi Fantasy Universe That BSG Has A Place in Popular Culture.

The Potential of BSG Fandom Is infinite; And, We Must Always remember the Man Who Showed us the Way, And Given us an Adventure to take with us to the Stars!

                                             SO SAY WE ALL!

A couple of Announcements; First, please Welcome Our Newest Pilot: Ens. Tara 'Caprica 6' Cole; Yes, She Happens to be A Cylon Model Six; However, She Has Pledged To Help Us In Our Fight, So, She will be treated as A Equal Spartan! I Expect You All to show Her What It Means to serve in the Finest Air Wing In the Fleet!

And, I Am Assigning Raptor #339,of SEEKERS SQUADRON, As A Designated Strike Raptor at The Disposal Of SPARTAN SQUADRON; It will Carry The Name "ARES", And is Crewed by Lt.jg.'Judge',And Lt.Jg.'Money'.

Finally,Next CAP: PrimeTime and Goose,Take Caprica 6, and report to the Starboard Flight Deck; Skids Up in Fifteen........MOVE IT!
