BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE SECOND COMING
tagline: "THE EVIL ROBOTS ONLY EDITION"
Basic details: While I love nuBSG, I am more of a Classic Battlestar Galactica Fan. The original 1978 series is my Star Wars! So I wondered if it would be possible to inject some classic BSG flavor into the 2003 remake without it becoming cheesy or feel like a retro narrative like my previous Trek edits. I wanted to create a respectful homage to my beloved childhood series while retaining the darker and character driven elements that make nuBSG so successful.
To achieve this effect, I have removed all the Human Cylons and added music from the original series soundtrack.
In this alternate version, the story is solely from the perspective of the Colonials. The Cylons are simply evil killer robots, a dark force of nature that sweeps in and exacts its revenge on their creators. No Mission from God or Mommy/Daddy issues for these Cylons!
Just kill, Kill, KILL!!!!
So Say We All!
