IMDb profile

Glen A. Larson is the creator of the original Battlestar Galactica and a "consulting producer" for the 2003 Re-imagined Series.

According to the Official Companion, Larson wanted a credit for the new 2003 Miniseries by Ronald D. Moore who began the Re-imagined Series, and his claim went to arbitration at the Writer's Guild of America. Ron Moore actually felt that Larson deserved a credit because the story was essentially the same as Larson's, just done "in different ways". As a result, Larson is credited in the Miniseries under the pseudonym "Christopher Eric James." Larson is also credited as a consulting producer on every episode of the Re-imagined Series because he holds the rights to the concept of Battlestar Galactica.

Our point was to whenever possible make it a departure like you're visiting somewhere else and we did coin certain phrases for use in expletive situations, but we tried to carry that over into a lot of other stuff, even push brooms and the coin of the realm.[1]
