Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Welcome to the Wiki, James Swallow. Feel free to tell us about yourself on your user page. Before you get started on other edits, please read the Battlestar Wiki:Standards and Conventions, which details the policies we use in editing pages (this differs from many other wikis in consistent use of phrasing, abbreviations, format, and the like).

Also, if you have any questions or suggestions you wish to offer, please feel free to do so either on your user talk page, the Wikipedian Quorum or Administrators' noticeboard. Remember to sign your posts on any talk pages using four tildes (~~~~)! --The Merovingian 14:47, 4 March 2006 (CST)


Mr. Swallow, thank you for your additions to the video game character articles. Can you please provide details on the source of this information? Is it presented in the video game itself, or in other documents? If so, can you please cite them? --April Arcus 21:43, 19 March 2006 (CST)

Sure, April. I wrote the script and story documentation for the Battlestar Galactica videogame and I'm drawing this information from material I produced for Vivendi Universal Games. Some of the information appears in the game in an edited form; I'm including material that also never made it into the final draft of the project.
That was my guess, as I've seen your name attached to the project in various interviews. I suppose this is just my opinion, but due to the freely editable nature of wiki, I think it makes for a sub-optimal primary source. Would it be possible, in addition to your contributions here, to write up your description of the background material in a more permanent format (a blog, perhaps?) that we could link to? This would help preserve the integrity of your contributions in the face of edit wars and/or factual disputes. Again, thank you for taking the time to contribute here - it's wonderful to have the assistance of someone so deeply involved in production. --April Arcus 09:19, 20 March 2006 (CST)
