Battlestar Galactica Exhibition to open

Saw this and thought I would pass it on. Glad to see Galactica getting a little recognition.'Battlestar Galactica' Exhibition LaunchesEvent allows fans a chance to touch the seriesBy ALAN STANLEY BLAIR Jun-17-2010 Source: Airlock Alpha Ever fancied seeing a Cylon Raider up close? Or, how about a Colonial Viper?Well, now's your chance.Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum (EMP|SFM) has announced a partnership with Universal Cable Productions and Syfy with the aim to create an interactive and immersive exhibition experience based around Ronald D. Moore's "Battlestar Galactica." The event, which opens Oct. 23, includes three full-sized spaceships from the series as well as costumes, music and props that fans will certainly recognise.“The museum is honored to be organizing the first exhibition devoted to both series,” said Brooks Peck, curator for the event, in a release. “'Battlestar Galactica' is one of those rare science-fiction shows that appeals to a wide range of people because it combines high adventure with very personal drama. It explores what it means to be human, and has a lot of fun doing so.”To that effect, 15 costumes are part of the exhibition that demonstrates the commonplace humanity in an otherwise extra-terrestrial environment. In addition, there also will be several concept sketches charting the original premise to the final product, and the exhibition will pay homage to the birth of the series by representing the original 1970s version as well."Over its four-season run on Syfy, 'Battlestar Galactica' became an iconic series that not only entertained, but fulfilled the promise of all great science fiction," said Mark Stern, Syfy's executive vice president of original programming, in a release. "It provoked us into examining our world and ourselves through its politically charged, socially relevant, religious and technological themes. It is an honor for us to partner with EMP|SFM in this one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience BSG in an up-close and personal way.""Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition" opens at EMP|SFM in Seattle on Oct. 23.

You can read it on Pink Raygun. She talks about her experience on BSG.A highlight:Who was your favorite BSG character to write for, and why?I had a fondness for all of the characters, but I took particular delight in writing scenes for Gaius Baltar. From the very first episode, Baltar is a two-edged sword. The survivors of this devastated world seek a scientist to offer answers and wisdom in a perilous time, and they get Gaius Baltar, a man with far more to hide than anyone can imagine. It was fun to put Baltar into odd alliances with various characters and watch him weasel out of trouble at every turn. Every action Baltar takes is designed to conceal his continued perfidy and save his own life, but in the process, he ascends to power and hero status among the fleet. One gets the sense that Baltar truly believes that power makes a man more handsome. Or at least taller. Eventually, even Baltar is forced to concede that power is illusory. And it’s then that he finally establishes a sense of peace over his role in determining the destiny of mankind.
