It’s been nearly thirty years since a ragtag band of space travelers set out to find a shining planet called “Earth.” That was the premise of Universal Studio’s classic TV show “Battlestar Galactica.” September 17, 2008 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the US television premiere of that ground breaking series. To celebrate this milestone, many original original cast members will be reuniting for GALACTICRUISE, a four day Carnival cruise from Los Angeles, California.

Invited are Richard Hatch (Apollo), Dirk Benedict (Starbuck), Anne Lockhart, Laurette Spang, Noah Hathaway, Jack Stauffer, Terry Carter, Herb Jefferson Jr. and many other cast members and production crew.

A limited number of fans of the show are also invited to participate and meet the cast. Info on how to join the cruise can be found at www.galacticruise.com or email info@galacticruise.com. GALACTICRUISE will sail September 15, 2008 to Baja, Mexico.

Starting with the fifteenth anniversary reunion, the original cast has reunited at a convention every five years. There they would share with fans memories of one of biggest TV events ever, the September 17, 1978 US television premiere of “Battlestar Galactica.”

The three hour premiere was the most watched network TV program ever up until that time. “Battlestar” was often compared to Star Wars, but made for TV. It has a loyal following today and is still shown around the world in reruns. It’s also the inspiration behind the current hit SciFi Channel show of the same name. Aaron Douglas and other cast members from the new version will also participate in GALACTICRUISE.

More info can be found at www.galacticruise.com or email info@galacticruise.com.

Doesn't really seem to be too much momentum behind this really. I haven't heard many people talk about it . . . at least on the usual lists I frequent.

Last report, Hatch was going, but Benedict wasn't. I probably would have been crushed had I spent the moola, thinking Starbuck would be there.

Well, at least Starbuck always shows in fanfic. Wink

Well, that's the BEST thing about fanfiction. He's shirtless . . . and probably a whole lot more muscular than he was in reality. Heh heh. Laughing

Actually, haven't heard from Maggie in a long time. Too long.

So . . . next time how about a Reunion Con in Washington State? Then you, Vaughnnie and I would be in the relative neighbourhood.

But Dirk had to be there too.

Mike and I are going. We're helping to organize it. I agree it should have been promoted more. Economy is bad thuogh and not many people are doing cruises like this. A lot less than expected turned up.

Dirk is joining his son who's going to study in the UK. Dirk intents on settling there as well and thought it was more important to do that than to join this cruise. Anne couldn't come either. Laurette hates boats. Noah doesn't do cons anymore. All things considered there are still plenty of good guests attending to part for a week and we're going to add a new one.

We'll screen the pilot on the exact 30th anniversary. We got permission from Universal to do so. The cast might do a live audio commentary on it which will make it unforgattable for all there and we'll have a cocktail party before hand.

I doubt if there will be enough fans and actors around to ever do a 35th. Confused

Well, give us a complete report after the cruise.

You're probably right about the 35th. Interest does seem to be waning.
