Contributors

While a fair amount of the book features new information[2], many of the people who had passed away (Lorne Greene, John Colicos, Fred Astaire etc.) are quoted from older archival materials, or from earlier interviews from other publications. These quotations are not directly credited in footnotes, and many interviews are quoted from Galactica.TV (credited only in the "Acknowledgements" section at the back of the book).

As identifying the origins of these quotations these are in process, the list below is by no means comprehensive.

References

  1. This is in error, as The Sci-Fi Channel did not formally change its name to Syfy until July 7, 2009. This was well after the last episode of Battlestar Galactica aired on March 20, 2009.
  2. "New" defined in the way of "as of the book's writing."
