What’s a FRAKKING BSG fan to do?

The show is ending next year and even worse there are no new episodes to be had for months yet…what to do what to do.


Battlestar Galactica – Beyond The Red Line (BTRL) is a FREE game that is now available as a Demo for PC/MAC/LINUX users. It’s a fan effort and is not officially endorsed by BSG’s copyright owners.

In an interview with the BTRL developers one of them admits that they have not made any attempt to contact Ron Moore or NBC Universal directly regarding the project.

In choosing to develop a game based on “Battlestar Galactica” we are making use of the intellectual property of NBC Universal. We walk a very thin legal line by using this material as inspiration for our work, which is why our project is free to the public. The team has no desire to profit from this labor of love, but rather to bring a new and enjoyable “Galactica” experience to fans of the television series and video games alike.

If that is not proof positive that SciFi and Ron Moore are a bit out too lunch I don’t know what is. There is so much demand/interest in BSG, they could easily make good money with a solid game like BTRL, but they are too busy deciding on when to cancel the series instead of giving fans more of what they want.

ShowMeSciFi will have more on BTRL soon..but for now check out this trailer…oh and don’t forget to download and try out the came yourself! ()
