    Hello everybody! I wasn't sure where to post this, but I hope I've found the right place!
    I hope you will take a few minutes to read about and sign the petition for the Sci Fi Channel's revival of the classic series, Battlestar Galactica.
    It's been a rocky journey so far but recent news that the Sci Fi Channel is 're-imagining' the original concept and themes (despite major worldwide fan outcry) is unacceptable! Going down this road with a production bearing little resemblance to the original spells doom and gloom for the pilot and subsequent series.
    Let's not see another sci fi concept be remade into something that the fan base cannot recognise, (like pretty much any remakes today, as we all know!). The last petition drive produced 15,000 signatures in under two weeks and saved the pre-production from total cancellation.
    I hope you will consider signing. If you are not a fan then maybe for the chance to see some original sci fi concepts spring from an old favourite!

    Online petitons ARE read by the powers that be in this case!
    Thanks in anticipation, Mike, Australia

    Wow, that was quick! Sincere thanks Frank; every little bit counts. The old show does tug at the old heart strings doesn't it?
    In addition to my Home Theatre addiction, I also do a 'little' model scratchbuilding. In this case, VERY relevant to this topic. I hope you like my work in progress. I couldn't resist!

    Keep those signatures coming guys! There is a potential Trek-sized franchise opportunity at stake here!
    Mike.
