I'm pretty sure it is. I remember my friend Tony sending me an article on it and than I looked around and found this:

Moving BSG to NBC would be a disaster - Wave bye-bye to the edgy content that makes BSG a unique player in sci-fi....

As it would have to be "sanitized" as not to offend the "PC" masses.

Not to mention showing the ugly side of human nature under those circumstances... Which is a big part of what the premise of BSG is all about.

If it went to network, it might as well be another poorly made Trek series - with ratings to match. God knows, that might even usher in the return of Boxey, the reintroduction of that stupid robot dog and alien races in a vain attempt to prop up ratings & be a "show for the entire family". YUCK! :no:

I just don't see it happening though.

Actually I doubt the quality of the show would go down due to a move to NBC. RDM is more likely to just fold the entire show like JMS did with Crusade when the suits started interfering with his show.

My money is on that it is only a rumor.

Stuff like this always takes up a life of its own on the web.

I can't believe people are buying into this. Five minutes of research nets you this:

I believe that qualifies as "straight from the horse's mouth" news...

Like I said, it was a web-propagated rumor that took on a life of its own.

Call that myth "busted"!

The new team is upgrade.  Bortron and VIVotron will join the
  almos teams with a bigger grill.  The point is now changing daily, all team
  alert.  That is the package.  Any net tracket or cylontre shot can be
  entered at time cop this month.  The bigger is not better, there is some
   problem with otefax the central intelligence of the sylondel, the ancient
   for one thing it lost its cap.  A fuel initiative will be blacking out over
   300 americanza teams with coltek so they are upset like burgerkings.
   Get a life here with 3 phasel upgraders and full compliment.  The protection
   of galactica, balactica, (martian 2) is scheduled.  No new action is due
   to the number of precedent versus loses.  Your score up is 21,450 to 3.
   Also the network score an additional 24,430 to 3.  Though we took the
   losses they were all from sung station android.  G teams are leading a
   long range target initiative to support the moves as gAla and galaticam,
   continue to make repairs. God Bless the returnable sprites.:cool1:
