Ok family, here's my feedback on the BG-Online beta and it's not a good one, be warned:

I've been playing the BG-online game for a few days now and the more I play it the more I like it (I didn't really liked it at first... not very user friendly at first)... or used to like it is a more true way to explain teh situation. The issues I have is the difficulty of the starting missions in contrast to the level of the player and the ship's maneuverability (or lack of it to be honest). 

As and example of this one mission in particular get's you into the task of defending a raptor on your own with a Mark II viper (ship of choice) and the Viper's armaments are NOTHING in comparison to the Cylon Raider's in terms of targeting. I can shoot 2000 bullets per minute and not leaving the Cylon raider's six for a second and still I miss 80% of the shots AND IN THIS GAME YOU CAN'T TURN YOUR SIX AND SHOOT THEM INTO OBLIVION LIKE IN THE SERIES, as a matter of fact there are NO, silch, nada evasive maneuvers in this game and once some get's on your ass you're done for unless you can shoot out your butt. SO... While i'm trying to concentrate into shooting the Cylon Raider in my front 2 more raiders are locked on my six and the ARE hitting 80% of their shots dropping my hull to 0. Sure I can destroy the first and get to half of the second raider but still I am so full of holes by that time that I just can't finish the damned mission.

I've done that mission 5 times now to no avail and I'm getting frustrated because it's not a thing of ability, I can keep myself glued to that Cylon Raider's Six like there's not tomorrow so it's not ability, it's the way the game is made.
The game is either demanding me to invest time in mining asteroids (the most BORING part of the game) to be able to upgrade AND then have a ship that can fight 3 raiders and win the fight or to PAY REAL CASH (in a free game? C'mon!) to buy for the materials needed to upgrade and then have a ship fit to fight 1 vs 3...
Told you it wasn't an ability thing...  this is just like a Facebook game, you pay the dime you get the best upgrades to smash your opponents. I stopped playing FB games because of that issue, the guys winning are the guys willing to pay REAL money to win.

Games are supposed to be fun... you play to have fun! and when a game becomes a hassle it stops being fun. BG-Online is becoming a hassle in the very first stages of it and that is NOT a good thing. Shame really as I was starting to like it.

What's that? Don't like it then don't play you say?

oh absolutely! I'm just giving my feedback on it, thank you very much!

you have to see it my way: I have a job and a life and very little free time to pursue hours of online gameplay. I've been a World of Warcraft (the mother of all MMOs) gamer for years and never in the most hard quests did I ever felt frustrated to the point of not playing anymore but the lack of realism in the flight simulation feeling, the lack of balance (yes, again I mean the "you pay it, you get it" thing) in it and the absolute lack of maneuverability makes this game a slow and painful experience to beat. I'll keep visiting it to check new changes that will hopefully make this experience a fun one but until then, bye bye online fleet i wish I could say it was fun but it was sadly not.

I'll stick to WoW for the time being.

Bear Mc Creary Interview Day

Hello Everyone,


Just a note. I will be getting the Bear Mc Creary interview out soon. The interview went well. Bear was great, even said hello to a couple of friends for me at the end. I had asked Bear a few questions. One question was about the BSG music scores and visual memories of every moment of a scene that goes along with it. Another was in regards to his decision to compose scores. It's a cool interview, It was nice to meet  and talk to the man behind the music of BSG. I'll type up more about that interesting day soon when I get the video squared away.

The Wedding Cake is Not a Lie!

Funny thing I always talk about is what action figures would stand in for me and my unknown future husband. One ex identified as a Jedi and the last identified with John Crichton from Farscape. I have a have a feeling my Starbuck action figure would have thought the Jedi was a wuss and would have punched out Crichton and told him to "Get the frak off my cake!" Yeah an "Sam Anders" on my cake would be nice but I have no problem with a Chief Tyrol or a Captain Kelly on my cake. Just some fangirl musings.

Hello everyone,

I wanted to share with you some pics that were captured from our recent film interview with Richard Hatch.

For those who don't know (there may be some out there who don't) 2008 we organized Galacticruise (which was in fact Galacticon II), the 30th anniversary celebration of Battlestar Galactica.

Galacticruise was held aboard both the Queen Mary (berthed in Long Beach, CA) and aboard the Carnival Cruise ship Paradise (dubbed Battlestar Paradise for the duration!).

We featured Richard Hatch, Sarah Rush, Denny Miller, Terry Carter, Terrence McDonnell, Austin Stoker, George Murdock, Stu Phillips, Michael Swan, Tom DeSanto and of course the late Robert Feero.

We are now in the process of putting together a DVD of the experience for all of you and I think it will be enjoyed not only by those in attendance...but by those who didn't have the opportunity to be with us.

At any rate, we just finished filming some additional footage with Richard Hatch last week and we wanted to release a few production stills (note the green screen!)...

Our own Herb Brunner was in his much deserved role of hosting the talk while Cliff Gardner & I were fussing around 12578014295?profile=original12578015058?profile=originalwith the camera's!

At the same time we were doing a photo shoot with Richard (or rather our own Chris Loomis was)...and hopefully we can very soon provide you a "making of video" of that experience.

For more information about the Galacticruise DVD, please go to just note we are in the process of finishing up work on that page...the actual DVD release is slated for September, but we will be starting pre-sales in July....Keep the Faith!12578015272?profile=original

Note: This was written years ago, but it still applies. Hope you enjoy.


Some time ago, I was asked on a message board what my view of the new Battlestar Galactica was. I said at that time that I haven’t watched it yet because I haven’t bought the DVD’s. I like watching shows on DVD, especially classic TV like Emergency (I get to see Engine 51 everyday because it is the engine for the volunteer fire dept. here in Yosemite) and Battlestar Galactica, and recent shows (some not so recent) like Babylon 5, The West Wing, Northern Exposure, Firefly, Alias, and Absolutely Fabulous. The real reason – I hate commercials, and this comes from someone who was almost in one herself many, many years ago. For a long time (several years), I was never going to watch the new BG. I was one of those fans who didn’t want a new revision but a version with the original actors and characters, and of course their offspring. I wanted to see BG the way I remembered – Starbuck, Apollo, Boxey – er, Troy, and the metal Cylons. I would have protested the new BG if I wasn’t so busy writing. Thank goodness for Richard Hatch’s books and comics because I’d been wondering for years (or yahrens) why no one got off their butts and at least write newstories, like with the Star Wars books and comics. I even remember telling Richard at San Diego Comic-con in 1996 (on Star Wars day – which ended up being Battlestar Galactica day for me) that I’m glad someone is writing BG stories, even if they are comics, and soon books. At least I didn’t have 3-day laryngitis like I did when I met Mark Hamill in 1995. It turned out that I wasn’t the only fan who didn’t want a revised version of BG, including Richard Hatch. So I guess after three years of hearing that the new BG is the best show on TV, and feeling that Richard Hatch was a traitor (for like five minutes) for being on the new BG (he even mentions it in the liner notes of Redemption) and that he embraced the new BG, I finally decided to watch the new series. So I bought the DVD’s, watched them, and even shared them with my mum while visiting her in Ireland. I enjoyed them immensely. My mom enjoyed them, too. This is the same woman who screams “You met Richard Hatch” in a store in Waco, TX in January 1997. She’s an All My Children watcher, and knows every character’s plots since the beginning of the show (yes, that’s why she freaked when I told her I met Richard). She saved my BG stories all these years, too – the ones I wrote in 1978-1980.


I like the new Cylons, especially Six in Baltar’s mind. And I also liked it when Bartar was in hers. It shows the two of them are more alike than they think. Even though one of the reasons why I hadn’t watched the new BG is because Starbuck is a woman, I’ve actually come to like Kara. And I also like Tom Zarek, probably because he says what is on his mind. Is he a terrorist? Is he a freedom fighter? Is he a genius? Is he a manipulator like Emperor Palpatine? Is he laughing boy?


I’ve watched seasons one and two three times, once with the commentaries. The madness of Dirk Benedict cracked me up. I can completely imagine him standing there in the temple with a cigar in his mouth saying, “I’m God.” It would have made a good piece for a gag reel. I was laughing so hard that I had to pause the DVD and run to the bathroom. And then when “Don’t cross the streams” and “Cross the streams” was said during the “Home (pt. 2) episode commentary, I was laughing again because it was “Ghostbusters” lines. I had to watch that movie afterwards and complain about barely hearing the two lines to “I Can Wait Forever” over the mover’s Walkman as I usually do.


I have only two complaints. I hate the name Lee. No, I loathe the name Lee. First name only, and that spelling. I still wish Starbuck was a sexy blond man. Sue me. Dirk Benedict was my first crush. Yeah, I know he’s not a blond, but he was on BG as Starbuck. I think admitting that made me feel my age.


Okay, so I’ve come around full circle about the new BG. I embrace it, but I will tell you this. The classic Battlestar Galactica is still the best for me. I’ve never once stopped being a fan. Not like with Star Wars, where I never thought about it during my teens, or when I stopped reading the books when they changed publishers and Luke married Mara Jade, but that ended, too. I even got people to talk about BG while waiting in line to see “Revenge of the Sith.” I brought Destiny with me to read while in line. With the 30th anniversary approaching, I’m still a Battlestar Galactica fan, and that will never change. Frack! Am I that old?

Yes, real Bear's...not just the McCreary type!

I'm talking about those four footed furry critter's that run around in the forest and eat honey...THAT type of Bear.

Seriously though, these wonderful animal's make up a very vital part of our ecosystem...actually all animal's are a vital link in the chain of this living organism that we all Earth.

Everyday we are confronted with the fact that once vibrant species are disappearing & that in turn has a great effect upon the surrounding ecosystem...while we may assume it's a frog species here or a bat species cut's across the spectrum of wildlife...and plantlife.

Literally, we see this happening everyday....and I personally think that we need to be more aware & cognizant of the fact & really start taking into account the effects of what we as humans do and don't do.

Recently I was contacted by Jessica Dally who is associated with "Beartrek" which is a film sponsored by a group called Wildlife Media  this feature length documentary focuses on the plight of endangered Bear species around the globe & is chronicled by noted British biologist & ecologist Chris Morgan on his world spanning motorcycle tour.

So the connection between Bear's & Battlestar (aside from someone named McCreary?)...well, I will tell you...he is the connection!

Bear has gotten out on front of this & lent his musical talent to "Beartrek" and given it another element.

Obviously he feel's the passion for protecting these wonderful creature's as does Chris Morgan & Jessica Dally as do I.

I think this a wonderful project & I urge you all to take a look at the trailer for "Beartrek", watch the movie, think about it & move in a progressive way yourself for helping to protect our word's diversity of life.

Battlestar Galactica fans are the greatest, so put your best foot forward on this, help protect these great & noble creatures

What's Your Call Sign?

When a Colonial Fleet pilot is assigned a call sign—often inspired by a particular incident, joke, personality trait or military aspiration—the nickname usually sticks for the rest of his or her career...  for better or for worse! Our favorites from the show include "Hiccup" and "Toothbrush," and we love how Adama's "Husker" sounds appropriately grizzled and world-weary...

Ready to find out yours?

What is the Albuquerque Comic Expo?

What is the Albuquerque Comic Expo?

ACE, or the Albuquerque Comic Expo, is Albuquerque New Mexico’s newest comic book, pop culture, and entertainment convention.


When is the Albuquerque Comic Expo?
June 24th-26th, 2011!

Where is the Albuquerque Comic Expo being held?

ACE is being held at the Albuqerque Convention Center, located in historic downtown Albuquerque at 401 2nd Street NW Albuquerque, NM 87102.

What can I expect at the Albuquerque Comic Expo?

ACE has a massive 106,000 square foot show floor that will feature exhibitors, vendors, a gaming area, Artist Alley, and more. Our show also has massive panel rooms, where you can expect to see Q&A’s, screenings, and more.

What kind of guests will be at the Albuquerque Comic Expo?

ACE will feature independent and professional comic book creators, celebrities, voice actors, video game creators, animators, and more! You can check out our Guest page for a listing of who to expect.

Is the event ticketed? Who needs a ticket?

The event will be ticketed. Tickets will be available for the entire weekend, or for individual days. All attendees ages 10 and up are required to have a ticket to enter the event. Children 10 and under are free with a paid adult ticket. If you are exhibiting, sponsoring, or in Artist Alley, will be provided with your package, and extra will be available at a discount rate. You can purchase right here on the website.

Military, police, and firefighters will receive an additional discount. Please email for more information.

Pre-sold will be delivered as badges. Tickets sold at the door will be wristbands.

I’m traveling to the Albuquerque Comic Expo. Do you have a partner hotel?

We do! The Hyatt Regency Albuquerque is the official hotel of ACE. Please visit this page for more information.

I’ve never been to a convention before. Any tips for first timers?

Never been to a convention? No problem! We’ve got you covered!
Wear comfortable shoes! Generally conventions involved a LOT of walking!

Bring cash – not everyone accepts credit cards! If you are interested in meeting artists, we recommend bringing a Sketchbook along! You can get sketches from your favorite artists! Get to panel rooms early – usually for the more popular panels, there are pretty long lines (though we’ll try our hardest to make lines as quick and pleasant as possible!)

What hours will the show floor be open?

Friday, June 24th: 10am-7pm
Saturday, June 25th: 10am-7pm
Sunday, June 26th: 10am-6pm

Can I come to the show in costume?

YES! We encourage you to come to the show in costume. We love it! Here’s some policy, though, in case you want to come to the show with weapons being a part of your costume.

Weapon Policy:

No functional firearms
No functional projectile weapons
No realistic replica firearms (any toy gun or replica that can be confused with a real weapon)
No sharpened metal blades
No explosives
No chemical weapons (pepper spray, mace)

Any prop weapons at the show will have to be constructed out of foam, wood, or other soft materials. Cap the barrel of replica or prop firearms with a bright orange plastic cap. Anything that could be mistaken for a real weapon isn’t going to be allowed. Use common sense! Failure to abide by this policy may result in being expelled from the show with no refund.

Members of the 501st will be performing a weapons check on every costume weapon at the entrance.

Can I take pictures at the show?

You can! If you’d like to take pictures of someone in costume, it’s good form to ask them first. If you’d like to take a picture of a celebrity, please keep in mind that some of them charge for photographs, and be respectful of that. If you are taking pictures, please try to move out of the middle of any aisles, and try to keep the flow of traffic going. Thanks!

What if I wanted to sell bootleg or unlicensed merchandise at the show?

That’s generally a bad idea all around. At the very least, it’s illegal, and at most, it’s downright rude. Here’s the policy on it:

Bootleg Policy:

We do not allow the buying or selling of bootleg, knock-off, or unlicensed materials. Violating this rule will result in your removal from the show, with no refund, and possible legal action against you. This applies to guests, exhibitors, and attendees.

There’s someone at the show that I want to harass, is that okay?

Seriously? It’s not okay. Not in the slightest. Here’s our policy on harassment:

Harassment Policy:

Harassment of any kind, including stalking, physical contact, battery, or verbal abuse will not be tolerated. It can lead to your removal from the show with no refund, and even possible legal action. Don’t do it! If you are a victim of harassment, please report it to the nearest security guard or show staff.

I would like to volunteer at the Albuquerque Comic Expo. What should I do?

You should email We’re currently building our list of volunteers, and will be contacting people about ways they can help the show in the coming months. Thanks, by the way, you’re the best.

I’d like to Exhibit or get a table in Artist Alley. What should I do?

Greetings from the Quorum Vice-Chair


Greetings fellow Colonials

   This is Mikhaila Durante and I wanted to take some time and introduce myself to you though some may know me already. I am the Vice Chairperson of the Quorum of 12 and represent the seat of Scorpia    ( Ain't we the lucky dogs!) And I am very happy to be serving you here. If I can ever be of any service, please feel free to drop me a line.

     Things are moving along in the Quorum. We are hard at work setting up 'shop' and having fun too. Things need to be in 'good shape on our ship' so to speak, so we can provide everyone with the most awesome experience on this site.  And who am I ?  Well, I live in Illinois, I have been a BSG fan snce the original series although I was very, very little at time. I still have some dim memory's of being of enamoured of Apollo and Adama. I watch and adore both  series now.

       Before my precious baby, Serena, ( she's almost 2)  was born, I was an actress for 20 years ( I'm an old mom). and was a globe-trotter. I still am a voracious reader, a gardener, lousy houskeeper, enthusiastic but lazy cook, seamstress. I have an awesome husband, Jimmy Durante. Yes, he's related but much more handsome. 

"Ha-cha-cha, I've got a million of them."  If you didn't get that reference you are too young.  

        That's a bit of me, Things can get busy on the Quorum site but I really wanted to come and say hello  and tell you about myself. Our news of the Quorum can be read below and to the left. Click on anything and you will be taken to our website. There are still a few positions on the council available. Not afraid of hard work? Honorable? Talk to us.

Do You Twitter?

If you don’t have a Twitter, you should join and get an account. Why? A lot of Battlestar Galactica actors have accounts on Twitter. Most of them tweet a lot. Be warned, some do use foul language, like Patton Oswalt, but it is their account, so they can say what they like. Most do keep you up-to-date on what is going on with their lives, such as rides or signings at conventions. Did you know that Battlestar Fanclub also had a Twitter? Well, they do. I’ve listed all of the accounts of actors, musicians, and writers that have been on all versions of Battlestar Galactica, including Caprica. I’ve also included a few other relevant sources that are great places for the BG fan, including Serge!

Hello everyone,

Just a note to you all here regarding Richard Hatch's flagship site,

It has gone through many permutations and various changes..I was there for the inception of the site, the birth of it as it were.

That was back in the day of course...Michael Faries being the original webmaster.

But again, back in the please just fast forward to today.

The site is undergoing a lot of renovation, remodeling and general updating.

This is something that Richard has wanted to do for a while...and between myself, Richard, Dan Allan, Michael Schloer & Michael Wehrhahn I think that is happening.

A few months ago we set shoulder to wheel to make this mountain move & it is a'trembling.

Galacticruise DVD is on the horizon!

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to to take a moment to let all of you know once more that the long awaited "Galacticruise" DVD will be released  this September!

Why September?...well, that's when we did the event in '08 & happily and not by coincidence happens to be when the original series premiered back in '78.

So what was "Galacticruise"? Well, I will tell you right was in actuality "Galacticon II"...taken to the high sea's & Mexico!

We thought we would do something a little different...I think you all remember the first "Galacticon" here in Los Angeles, a stellar Convention that was just amazing...but we wanted to take a different trek with this one, kick up our heels & do something mobile...give it some unique qualities....hence we took it it literally in motion.

Our guests on this were of course Richard Hatch (Apollo, Tom Zarek), Terry Carter (Colonel Tigh), Sarah Rush (RIgel), Robert Feero (Bora the Borellian), George Murdock (Dr. Sellik), Stu Phillips (Composer original TOS theme), Austin Stoker (Battle for the Planet of the Apes), Terrence McDonnell (Writer on TOS) and Denny Miller (Battlestar Galactica, Wagontrain) along with Michael Swan (Galactica: 1980) & Tom DeSanto (X-Men).

Now all of you know my friend Richard Hatch...I think his work with BSG speaks does Terry Carter's, a classic BSG alumni...Sarah Rush, who launched all Vipers!...Robert Feero, (sadly not with us & we dedicate this DVD to his memory)...was a menacing "heavy" in the original show, George Murdock, along with his role in BSG has had a stellar career ranging all the way from the original "Twilight Zone" to playing "God" in "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier".

Stu Phillips, another BSG alumni, not only wrote the theme for BSG, but also for a multitude of TV programs through the 70s & a little research, you will be astounded...does "Knightrider" come to mind?
Austin Stoker, though not a BSG player per se, is very well known for his work on the original "Assault on Precinct 13" & "Battle for the Planet of the Apes"...Terrence McDonnell, if you read the credit's, penned a good chunk of the scripts for TOS & set the stage the franchise.

Denny Miller not only appeared in BSG's "Gun on Ice Planet Zero", but also "Wagon Train" as a regular & with numerous appearances on TV, like "Gilligan's Island" & "The Brady Bunch" among many, many wanna know who IS the Gorton's fisherman? That's Denny....Iconic.

Michael Swan appeared in "Galactica: 1980" but his real claim to fame has been his work in the Soap's...truly nice...truly talented...& of course, my friend Tom DeSanto (Writer & Producer for X-Men) among many, many other exciting ventures.

So as you can see, we had a really stellar group of people to work with & it was a great, informative, fun adventure.

It's something we'd like to share with you.

So coming this July (wow, next month) we are gong to begin pre-sales of the DVD...I really think it's a must have!

I can't wait to see it myself & I was there!

And don't forget everyone, we are ramping up for "Emissaries: Galatcticon III" scheduled for 2013...yup, the plans are being made!

May the Lords of Kobol bless you!

So say we all!

Long time no blog post

It's been a while since I last posted anything here on this blog. What have I been up to? Believe it or not I've been working on some Quorum issues that we in the Quorum are presently in discussion on. At this present time I really can not go into detail as to what these are but I asure you that they will help us all out in the long run as well as enrich our fandom experience with both the BFC and CDF.


So that's what I've been doing here these past coiuple of weeks and last month. I would couple of months but I'm not all that certain that enough time has passed to even consitute making suchj a statement at this present time. If you have a fandom concern please by all means let me know about it and I'll be more than happy to take the issue to my fellow Quorum members to discuss and work out and hopefully get setup as policy for both our organizations (BFC and CDF). The format for this type of request is:
