FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" (1999)

Some months ago, we did an entry about "The Battlestar Galactica You Never Got To see," an attempted revival by Richard Hatch. Here's the old entry http://www.republibot.com/content/%E2%80%9C-galactica-you-didn%E2%80%99t... Now, this trailer is amazingly hard to come by. Our own Republibot 2.0 actually helped work on the project back in the day, and even he never got to see a copy of it, so, honestly, it's rare as hen's teeth. When we did that earlier story, we had to content ourselves with a crappy video camera copy of the trailer, in which it was mostly impossible to make out what was going on. "Pat" over at the United Worlds forum, however, has uncovered an actual decent copy, however, and I felt this was post-worthy. Just click on through to see what might have been, but probably couldn't.

“The Galactica You Didn’t Get To See!”

In the lean years between Battlestar Galactica and Battlestar Galactica, Richard Hatch (Not the gay one, the other one) attempted a revival attempt of the original show on his own. The idea was that it was 30 years later, Apollo was now commander, and the fleet hadn’t seen any Cylons since “The Hand of God.” Suddenly, they turn up again. The project was called “Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming.” To promote it, he shot a five-minute trailer at Dragon Con in Atlanta, involving many of the original actors, and spiffy (for the time) new effects.
