Talk:Battlestar Galactica 0

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Yeah I saw this last week but I didn't know how to categorize this; I mean the comic's name is just "Battlestar Galactica"? NOTE: the writers of the comic talked with RDM. I don't think that makes it canonical, but it should be fairly in keeping with the theme of the series without getting outlandish, like other comic book versions of Trek and Wars.--The Merovingian (C - E)

Rofl the cover art looks great. Baltar looks totally kick ass! --Mercifull 04:12, 8 April 2006 (CDT)

I have to dig around to find the original interview, but I can assure you that Kuralyov's summary is correct, I read the same interview article and that's exactly what it said. --The Merovingian (C - E) 18:50, 14 April 2006 (CDT)

There's actually at least two covers. I have a second with Six on the cover, but same content.
I'm for creating a comic continuity for these, noting that the events are based on the RDM continuity but are of a different continuity. This prevents us from mixing what contradictions or "non-events" occur between the shows. Obviously if a major character of the past reappeared, our characters should have been gravely affected, but then, the TV continuity character may not. They have a place, but we need to make a distinction. --Spencerian 13:36, 3 June 2006 (CDT)
So does this mean we would need separate pages for Zak Adama and Timeline (RDM) to include comics continuity information? Would separate sections within the main page be enough? --Peter Farago 14:56, 3 June 2006 (CDT)
I think that making separate subsections in an article is a mistake, as is making a separate timeline. It's a comic book. STar trek has dozens and Memory Alpha does not include such info outside of the comic book article. We don't need to include them into our projects when their canonicity is dubious: we don't include info from the video game. --The Merovingian (C - E)
We don't include (much) information from the Video Game because few people have contributed anything. Our purpose is to be an encyclopedia for all things BSG. I don't think it's our place to make quality distinctions here - we could argue against documenting Galactica 1980 on the same grounds. I say that as long as it has an official license, it's fair game. --Peter Farago 20:13, 4 June 2006 (CDT)
Right. I'm just saying Galactica 1980 and RIC stuff don't get mixed. Current warning on top of this page seems adequate. --The Merovingian (C - E) 21:06, 4 June 2006 (CDT)

Looks like someone's used the episode template already. Good. I'm going to add the usual sections that would appear in an episode so we can add the fun chatter and commentary. --Spencerian 18:02, 4 June 2006 (CDT)

I received my copy today (just to have it). Inexplicably and unexpectly, the story really caught my interest. Can't wait for the next. --gougef 19:25, 9 June 2006 (CDT)

Got mine today too. Was expecting the inconsistencies with the actual franchise to be jarring, but I actually found it quite absorbing. The characterisation seemed very well observed and if the story weren't so contrived it'd actually fit right in as an episode. Plus it was only 20 pence. --Pearse 14:28, 16 June 2006 (CDT)


Merv, I think that you nailed it. --FrankieG 20:25, 27 June 2006 (CDT)

I tried to tone it down, and I did not want to "decide" such matters for myself...then again the "non canon" tag was already on it and we already had a discussion. Er, in private, what I FEEL like saying is:
"These guys keep hyping themselves as "in the same continuity", when in fact all they did was let RDM do a brief once over of the story to see that it wasn't horrifically wrong, that they weren't planning on killing off Starbuck or even Cally or Tyrol without permission as the writers have their own plans for recurring characters, but other than making sure that Colonial One doesn't blow up and Tyrol doesn't die, based on interviews I've heard about how much "input" RDM had on this and Bradley Thompson's statements to us that they just look it over to make sure they're not stepping on the tv series TOO much, this comic book plays the characters, ships, technology, continuity, and themes of the Re-Imagined Series FAST AND LOOSE, and NO it is BLATANTLY NOT "in synch" with the show, despite how much publicity you're trying to make for it!"
There. I said it.
Anyway, I only really bought the frakking thing for the artwork (which ain't that good, but has its moments) to see what the characters look like. So far they're just introducing main characters, so they haven't gotten to like Helo or Cally or Tyrol yet. I mean for a frakking quarter, the price was right. But it's not worth the gas money to go out and buy just that, think about it. Pick it up if you're buying a BSG Titanium Series toy or something (note: The Titanium Series Cylon Raiders stink; by the Gods, they're purple. Not Chrome, they made them purple. I'm not buying that.). --The Merovingian (C - E) 21:24, 27 June 2006 (CDT)
Agreed. Well stated, Merv. --Peter Farago 22:26, 27 June 2006 (CDT)
At a quarter each, I got both covers. Having read through one of my copies, I can only agree with this judgement of its canonicity (and, for that matter, artwork). --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 01:44, 28 June 2006 (CDT)
I like the story, but I look at it like "Battlestar Galactica on Mescaline" :D --FrankieG 06:53, 28 June 2006 (CDT)
