Ron Moore and David Eick Tease Battlestar's End, Caprica's Beginning

Battlestar Galactica

Fire up your raptors, Battlestar Galactica fans, the final season of the Peabody Award-winning show begins Jan. 16 at 10 pm/ET on Sci Fi. If you're like us, you have so... many... frakkin' questions! The biggest one: "Will all of our questions actually be answered?" Executive producers Ron D. Moore and David Eick tease what's next for the four Cylons revealed this past season, assured us we won't need to wait the very last episode for the fifth Cylon's identity and gave some details the prequel series, Caprica, which is set to air in early 2010.

What are you most proud about the way the series ended?
Ron Moore: I would have to say that I'm probably most proud about the fact that I think we were able to answer most of the questions that we'd raised over the years. And, sort of, to resolve most of the mysteries and the grander questions of the show and at the same time give a resolution to all the character arcs and to wrap it up by the end. And, we don't save everything until... read more

What the Frak? No New Battlestar Until 2009

Battlestar Galactica fans are well-advised to sit back and savor this Friday's midseason finale, because the balance of Season 4 — the series' last, lest we forget — won't be hitting the tube until after "the first of the year," says executive producer Ronald D. Moore. And that's a best-case scenario.At a Wednesday-night screening of this week's episode, Moore explained to that even though they are currently filming the series' final scenes, the "practical realities" of post-production — coupled with the formidable end-of-year competition presented by new fall series, baseball and football — places the onset of the final episodes at the start of 2009, at the earliest. "Realistically, there's no way to get back on the air faster," he apologetically added.What's your take? Sure to be worth the wait? Or does it sound like a frakkin' eternity? — Matt Mitovich, with reporting by Anna Dimond and Erin FoxRelated:• Battlestar's "The Hub": Burning Q... read more

Galactica Vets' Virtuality Takes Flight on Fox

Ron Moore by Trae Patton/Sci Fi Channel

Fox is blasting off its new programming orders with Virtuality, a two-hour sci-fi pilot from BermanBraun and Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore and Michael Taylor. The story follows 12 astronauts who are on a 10-year mission to find a distant solar system. They must be pretty bored up there, because they pass the time by hooking up to virtual reality modules — think Second Life, but you get sucked into the action. Good sci-fi trouble ensues when someone (perhaps a crew member?) hacks into the VR system and infects it with a virus. The concept came from Lloyd Braun, who, along with Gail Berman, pitched it to writers; Moore and Taylor turned out to be the perfect fit. Fox boss/former Peacocker Kevin Reilly bought the program after NBC passed, saying, "Moore and Taylor have taken a complex concept and made it incredibly accessible."Producers want to shoot Virtuality this summer with an eye on a February 2009 launch. Are you excited about another sci-fi show from Ron Moore? — Er... read more
