There is no other Battlestar Galactica reboot (yet), thank God!!
Moore-Ron's one was complete crap, and they only get worse with each
new version (just look at the continuous idiotic superhero reboots).

There was a rumour a while back of a movie version that was stupidly
going to be different to both existing versions. There was also a
rumour of some insane movie that would somehow fit with *both*
versions. Hopefully both of these silly ideas have been cancelled.

Well, originally Dirk Benedict was trying to get a movie funded that
was supposed to be a direct follow-up to the original series, right?

That could have been interesting with a decent budget and decent acting.

If you're able to watch Ron Moore's version without trying to compare
it to the original, and if you pretend that its a standalone show, its
not bad at all.

I'm not sure about a Dirk Benedict movie. Glen Larson was trying to
make a movie (rumoured to be a follow on or yet another version at
different stages). Richard Hatch tried for years to get a follow-on
series made.

There was also the follow-on series by Bryan Singer, but he had to pull
out and that's when Moore-Ron was brought in to ruin in. :-(

But since the morons gave it the same name, like all idiotic reboots,
it's obviously not a "standalone show". If they had had the brains to
give their very different version a different name, then you wouldn't
have to pretend since it would be a standalone show.

You're right, it was Richard Hatch. I believe he even got a trailer
or two produced.

No arguments there. :)

There is a 4min trailer for "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming"
on YouTube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQNk6VMg9xs
or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s8heJPX8xkand
and also on the "official" website
http://www.richardhatch.com/battlestar_galactica/bsgtsc.html

He did also make a trailer for another sci-fi show called "The Great
War of Magellan", which I have a copy of, but it isn't particularly
good.
