The Community Portal is the central place to find out what's happening on Battlestar Wiki. Learn what tasks need to be done, what groups can be joined, and get or post news about recent events or current activities.

Community Bulletin Board
Post your Battlestar Wiki related announcements here! Portals and collaborations should be listed in their sections at the bottom. New initiatives, proposals, discussions, or article drives should be listed under "Notices".


Battlestar Wiki is always expanding, but some of our projects need extra attention from all the members to get them done. Some of these projects have "due" dates to make sure that they are completed by a certain time. The dates for "due" dates were achieved with a consensus of the participants of the discussion. Joe Beaudoin Jr., site owner, does not need consensus to set due dates, but usually informs the group of what's going on.

Listed below are the items that have due dates.

Project/Goal Date Due
In Process: Verify and generate needed Podcast Transcripts. Before June 2008. High priority.

ToDo List

Battlestar Wiki is the first online Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia ever to exist, and the greatest source of information about BSG (other than the series bible, which is not available to the public). However, that comes at a cost: many are stubs that need attention. If you like, go ahead, be bold and think your ideas, and jump right in. If you aren't ready to fly solo, you can participate in a Collaboration section and see where you can help out.
