Yesterday was the 40th Anniversary of Battlestar Galactica.
More than a sci-fi shoot’ em up in any incarnation, Battlestar Galactica has always been about both the struggle to escape overwhelming odds and a people’s right to survive. It’s about those being persecuted for their race—be it human or Cylon.
Frighteningly, there are still a lot of lessons to be learned from that in today’s world.
Busy with my new job and reflecting on the loss of the ineffable Richard Hatch (from a year and a half ago), I forwent any formal post until now.
This morning, I feel renewed and inspired—so have chosen to post a piece of Battlestar art that is often overlooked—created by the late great Frank Frazetta as concept art for the show some 40 yahrens ago.
Happy Belated, Battlestar.
May we see you continue to spread your message of hope in television and film form, as well as all other media.
Remember, there are always be those who believe.
As Richard would no doubt now say,
Keep the Faith.
