"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."

More Classic BSG Props

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 12:53pm 4 Comments

I just finished a few more props in preparation for Galacticon 3.  Since I'll be wearing my Commander Cain uniform--I needed to crank these out while taking breaks from building the new Blackstar website. 

First up are the Cain chest badge and neck medallion.  I posted full tutorials on the Blackstar website, but I'll share…

Why you should join Blackstar aboard the Raven

We are the first and only classic viper squadron assigned right now!

The Blackstar squadron has deep ties to classic BSG, and also an interesting "history" that falls in canon.

Read our history and join here:


Yes, we fly the MK I viper, but they have those interesting capabilities that the MK II and VII don't have...… Continue

Hi Spectre,

It’s been a while since I contacted you. How are you and your family doing? Are you all settled in after the move?

I made everyone in my squadron their own Viper Name Plate. I also made them for a few other members of the Raven and these are for you and Reaper. I hope you like them my friend.

They are Jpeg images and can be saved and printed for framing if you so desire.

Makes sense. That would be fun!

Yeah, she told me Blackstar would be helping with the costume contests, for which I'm VERY grateful!!! We're short on stage managers at this point so I'm going to be running thin. :) I'll ask her about that. lol

Hi Spectre,
I would love to help Blackstar out at Galacticon, however I'm already working at Galacticon as a stage manager with Cheryl Dubuque. It's going to take most of my con time. I'll seek you out to meet you, though!

Tell me why I should join Blackstar, please. What is different/special? Thanks for seeking me out! :)
