"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."

Jeff Bridges & Bears

Hello Everyone,

A couple of years ago I got a message from a group called Wildlife Media...a group headed up by Bear biologist Chris Morgan...

It so happened that they were working on a film called Beartrek (about Bears) of course & had approached Bear McCreary to see if he might be interested in supplying some music for the film.

They really like his stuff & well, his name IS Bear...

They wanted to get the word out about the film & Bear referred them…

Richard Hatch: Celebration Day

Hello Colonials,

A few weeks ago I sent the word forth about this special event set for Saturday May 20th.

For the background on this (if some of you missed it), Richard was a great lover of Japanese steakhouses & hot sake!

I attended many of these group dinners as I'm sure a lot of you have...great fun.…

Hello Colonials!

I have a few announcements that I think will be of great interest to you all.

First of all, I need to reinforce a policy that we have always had in place here at the Battlestar Galactica Fan Club. This has never been an issue, but I felt a need to restate our position on this...specifically membership in this organization.

The position of the Battlestar Galactica Fan Club is this: We do not & never will discriminate against any potential or current…

In memory

Hello Everyone,

My apologies for the delay in getting a message out to you all...I have been traveling the last few days, plus it has taken me a bit of time to wrap my head around what happened this past week.

As you all know, Richard Hatch passed away this past Tuesday February 7th.

Again, it is something that took me a few days to adjust to & to even actually believe...I'm sure you all have felt the same way.

I will tell you that I will miss him…

As the infected pilots recover in the Galactica's infirmary, the maverick shuttle pilots brag up their victory in the Officer's Club. Starbuck and Apollo are relieved to hear that the bridge crew has detected an unknown blip trailing the Galactica fleet, just beyond tracking range. At first, Tigh approaches Apollo about leading a recon patrol to see what's out there. Then Serina appears and insists she is assigned as Apollo's wingman. In the…
