BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, THE CULT HIT SERIES, TO AIR ON NBC UNIVERSO IN SPANISH FOR THE FIRST TIME ON U.S. TELEVISION

Starring Academy Award-Nominated Actor Edward James Olmos, the Universal Cable Productions and Syfy Series Debuts in Spanish on Wed., July 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT 

MIAMI – July 28, 2015 – NBC UNIVERSO, the modern sports and entertainment cable channel for Latinos, today announced the launch of Battlestar Galactica, the cult classic which remains one of the highest-rated series ever on Syfy. From Universal Cable Productions, Battlestar Galactica is now slated to appeal to a whole new audience when it airs for the first time in Spanish on U.S. television beginning Wed., July 29, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Battlestar Galactica is the latest hit series NBC UNIVERSO has introduced in primetime as the channel recently launched Law & Order: LA and Suits in Spanish on Tuesday nights. Already a legendary franchise in English and with a global fan base, Battlestar Galactica, transports viewers into a world where human civilization has extended to a group of planets known as the Twelve Colonies and has engaged in a lengthy war against a cybernetic race known as the Cylons, whose goal is the extermination of the human race. After the Cylons carry out a massive attack on the Twelve Colonies and on the Colonial Fleet of “starships” that protect them, scattered survivors flee into outer space aboard a ragtag array of available spaceships. Only the “Battlestar Galactica,” a gigantic battleship and spacecraft carrier, survives the Cylon attack.

Under the leadership of Commander Adama (played by Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos), the “Galactica” and a team of "Viper Fighters" lead a fleet of survivors in search of the fabled thirteenth colony known as Earth.

“Battlestar Galactica defined a special era for me as an actor and I am very proud to have been part of such an iconic franchise -- It’s thrilling to know that this work carries on and will now be enjoyed by legions of new Spanish-speaking fans,” said Edward James Olmos. “The show also delved into issues of mixed races and gender equality which I think new fans will find to be quite relevant today.”NBC UNIVERSO viewers can watch the series every week on Wednesdays from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT. The series also stars Grace Park as Battlestar Galactica pilot Number Eight, Mary McDonnell as President Laura Roslin and Jaime Bamber as Captain Lee "Apollo" Adama.

"Sci-fi is an extremely popular genre among Hispanics and NBC UNIVERSO is thrilled to build on its sci-fi offerings which currently include Warehouse 13 and Eureka,” said Bilai Joa Silar, Senior Vice President, Programming & Production, NBC UNIVERSO. “We are looking forward to introducing Battlestar Galactica to Spanish-speaking audiences in the U.S. and creating a new ‘Colony’ of “Galacticans.”

Subscribers of NBC UNIVERSO on participating cable, satellite, and telco services also will be able to view episodes of Battlestar Galactica in Spanish on Video on Demand, as well as onnbcuniverso.com and the NBC UNIVERSO NOW app by entering the subscriber’s log-in information. Battlestar Galactica is from Universal Cable Productions and originally aired on Syfy from 2004-2009.

Happy Veterans Day 2015

                                

Colonials,

Tomorrow, 11 November 2015, is Veterans Day! 

On behalf of the Battlestar Galactica Fan Club Leadership, we would just like to wish all the men and women in uniform, both past and current, that are members here at the BFC, HAPPY VETERANS DAY!  We would also like to remember those who lost their lives in the line of duty. You maybe gone, but you will never be forgotten. So if you see a veteran, please thank them for their service. A simple "THANK YOU" really comes a long way to those veterans. It warms their hearts. All those times away from home and their love ones, is priceless and cannot be replace but is a sacrifice each and everyone that puts on the uniform, have to do.

We would also like to wish all US Marines, both past and current, who are also members here at the BFC, a HAPPY 240th Birthday to the United States Marines Corps (10 November 1775)!  SEMPER FIDELIS to all of you!

I just wanted to take my time to wish each and everyone on Battlestar Raven, HAPPY 4th Year Chapter Anniversary to each and everyone of you. It has bee a long and hard journey for her considering her rough beginning.  But the success she is enjoying now, is because of each and everyone of her members ( both current or old timers should I say ;-) - and new ).  Your combine hard work got her to where she is now and she and leads with example.  The ownership, pride, friendship, comraderie, talent, fun and a sense of family that the Raven crew has, is something that makes her unique and strong. This is what will make her rise above anything.  We keep this group simple, fun, and NOT a competition. If there is anything I have learned from my experience being a part of a fan club that things so seriously, it takes the fun out of things and people end up going against each other.  Things will begin to crumble after that.  And that is something I am very thankful for that the Raven is FREE from.  And I will would like to keep it that way.  This group has work far too hard to get to where she is now.  So to all Ravens, keep showing your pride and loyalty which you have already done so. And the Raven will keep rising and soaring above.

To help celebrate the Raven's 4th Year Chapter Anniversary, we will announce the winner of the free round trip airfare and VIP ticket to Galacticon 4.  This was put together by me and my husband along with the collaboration of the other Raven Command Staff members.  We had to really think hard for months.  My husband and I decided to put this together because we both know and have been watching, that not everyone has the same financial capabilities to go to conventions.  And we got thinking to ourselves and combine forces, in making that one select person's dream come true. The person selected is someone that has been a part of the Raven crew since her beginning.  This individual has shown nothing but loyalty and integrity as part of the crew.  He once told me that he may not be as talented as the other members we have including myself but he will certainly do what he can and in what he is good at.  And he has just done that.  No failure. This individual is a very good motivator.  He has evolve from someone not knowing at first what he needs to do or what he can do, to someone that keeps wanting to learn, taking initiative of doing things.  And this individual has stuck with the Raven in bad times and in good times.  And this EVERYONE, is a characteristic that makes a group strong if you have people like this as part of the crew.

So without further ado, the winner of the Raven Battle Group free roundtrip airfare and VIP ticket to Galacticon 4 is Keith "Leonidas" Ranson.  One of the Galacticon 4 VIP tickets that I have in my possession,  will be immediately transferred to you and the roundtrip airfare ticket will be given to you on the side at the appropriate time due to some personal information that we might need to book you the ticket. Now if for some reason you are not able to go due to your work, then a second person will be chosen in your place.  But I am sure you would want to go ;-) 

Congratulation Leonidas!  You deserve it!   MORE TO COME EVERYONE AS ANOTHER THING WILL BE REVEALED! :-)

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!  " NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM!"  Get used to seeing that phrase from the Raven Battle Group! You will soon find out everyone why here shortly.  ;-) :-)
