Episode Summary

Battlestar Galactica
The creators and cast of Battlestar Galactica talk about the re-imagining of the show, what makes it different, and its impact on everyday life. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Battlestar Galactica, the re-imagining of the 1978 ABC sci-fi series about a lost tribe of humans on a fleet of starships, led by the Battlestar Galactica, during a war with the robotic Cylons. David Bushman (television and advertising curator, The Paley Center for Media) moderates the following panelists: executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, and cast members Grace Park (Sharon), James Callis (Dr. Gaius Baltar), Jamie Bamber (Lee "Apollo" Adama), Katee Sackhoff (Kara "Starbuck" Thrace), Mary McDonnell (Laura Roslin), and Edward James Olmos (Adm. William Adama). After a video hello from actress Tricia Helfer (Six), the panelists cover a number of topics, including why the producers decided to re-imagine Battlestar Galactica, the social relevance of the show, the casting and writing processes, the difference between BSG and other sci-fi shows, and the use of the word "frak" in everyday life.moreless
