to be honest, i've never really even noticed much Sci-Fi stuff besides SW and FS, but the few screenshots scattered on this board really make me wanna watch the show now.

It's the best piece of SF television I've ever seen.

It's also been one of the best shows on television since it began, easily outstripping Lost and taking a place alongside The Wire and The Sopranos as outstanding dramatic television.

I really liked an interview of the creators, when they said that their purpose is to create a plausible sci-fi series without exaggerated stuff. In BSG people use phones and open doors manually...

When I look back and think of Stargate I wonder if that's sci-fi or fantasy.

Well, they've opened Stargates manually. And they use phones.

Space battles and certain species aren't realistic...

The Cylons were created by mankind and there are no alien species in BSG, this makes it a lot more plausible although the concept of fighting robots created by man isn't original.

Of course, there is some noticeable supernatural stuff going on. Maybe.

Yes.

And BSG does take the laudable step of keeping any supernatural elements ambiguous and firmly behind-the-curtain. There are no ascended Ancients floating around and glowing, as there are in Stargate.

 
wow this was unexpected... Its good to see a FS BSG project up and rollin again. eh as some great blue suit dude once said: "sometimes you have to roll the hard six."
Frak.

Well... yeah.. except for the big blue glowy things... or have you seen the old BattleStar Galactica? Though they might not make an appearance in the reimagined series...
Do not meddle in the affairs of coders for they are soggy and hard to light

Yeah, that's the old one.

We'll see if they manage to stay out of the new one. I hope so.
Spoiler:
Though there certainly seem to be supernatural powers at work on Kara towards the end of season 3/early season 4.

I hate Letterman.

@Dispora team guys:
Maybe I missed something, but who is your music composer? BtrL's music was great, (MaX the demi-god), what are you planning? I don't read (I assume) his name on the team list.

I was thinkin of a way to beef up briefings and wondering if you could actually put in video. I just finished watching the scar ep and noticed vid feeds from the vipers actually do help on tactics. not saying it has to be recorded in real-time during missions, but between mission learning brief...pre-rendered vid. this way you actually get the experience of nugget training instead of flyin out, gettin killed and wondering why. no download city for a viper jock!

You can make animations for briefings, yes.

Its a legitimate question...briefings are animated through moving icons and the sizing on the grid.  There's also Command Briefings which do have room for animations/videos.  I don't think you can put video in a Briefing...Command briefing yes but the regular briefings I don't think so...unless SCP added something recently.

Oh I know that, but look at what happened to GW after BtRL was formed. Endless flood of pop-culture n00bs solely interested in BtRL/BSG. There will be overspill, but I guess it'll have to happen.

oh im sorry. I thought this was a place where people interested in the mod could talk and freely voice their interest. I guess I've got the wrong place. I understand many on these boards are FS gurus who have made fs open their own. this is awesome and honestly I'm happy to see such a community as this. But when you start grilling some one for asking an honest question, you have to ask: what if someone did the same to you? Cause what would you know if someone didnt tell you truths?

thank you. I was more or less wondering if it might be a feature.

It is.

I'm going to assume that colecampbell666 wasn't having a go at you for asking a simple question and was speaking in general.
