possible new movies poll.

Edit: (yes its at the top, but its important) Multiple Selection is enabled, you can select multiple options!

When i got up this morning, i had this idea for a poll, i actureally got the idea off of another websites poll, but shh!

as alot of you undoubtedly know, there are plans to make between 1 and 3 new movies for battlestar, like they did with Razor. But what i want to know is, what do you want to see the most as the story for the movie, the polll options are what ive come up with, but if you have any other ideas, share them here. By the way, theres no "After Season 4" option because i have a feeling it woudnt be possible, or if it is, at least it wont be so intresting.

Please no argueing (also known as Agressive Discussions) with each other, you need to respect each others views.

edit: at the bottom this time, i chaned my mind about not voteing. Expect a follow up post about the possibilities of some of these options

Pros and Cons of the above options:
Pre 1st Cylon War:
Pros - We havent seen it yet
Cons - No Characters known from that era, Its mroe of a Caprica time than bsg

1st cylon war:
Proa - We know some characters from that era (Husker, Huskers Chick, Person who Husker is wingman for), relatively enough information is known about the era, with still enough room to add some storys
Cons - Razor covered this area, breifly

Between the 2 wars:
Pros - If its on the Valkyrie, we know alot of the crew already: Adama, Tigh, Bulldog and Tyrol. It was i beleive stated Tyrol has been with Adama through quite a few of his commands, thus tyrol could easily of been there, but thats speculation, he may or may not of been there. We get to see Adama at may be the peak of his command career pre fall of the colonies (he was trusted to send someone over the Armastice Line)
Cons - Im not sure therers that much to tell, unless Adama and the Valkyrie did quite a few Black Ops stuff

Character Locations 5 years previous:
Pros - we know the characters, we may see how Boomber and Caprica Six, Etc got to the colonies
Cons - could easily e merged with the above idea

Cylons pre attack
Pros - Learn more about the Cylons, it would be really great for those of you that want to learn more about 'who'/'what' the cylons are, see why/how the skinjobs where made or them planning there attack
Cons - It could take away the mysteriousness of the cylons, but, season 4 will be over by then

Mini Seires point of view
Pros - We acturelly see what happened over virgo, How Anders n team survived, maybe some civilian ships or the civilians the pegasus found
Cons - Most would be new characters with the exception of a few (Crashdown, Laird, Anders. Maybe Kat and Hotdog before they joined the viper pilot training program)

Cylons point of view
Pros - we already know the characters, maybe they have a cylon crysis of faith? dealing with the res ship being destroyed
Cons - they loose some more mysteriousness

Galactica/Pegasus missing adventure
Pros - Cast known
Cons - it could be too similar to an episode

New Caprica:
Pros - alot of the cast will be known, and some new cast can be added
Cons - Covered in Razor as well as Series 3 Flashbacks

Sorry for the long post, i just thought i should post why i thougt they where good/bad ideas

How about they go pre precolonial and give us a movie about the 13 tribes and kobol? Hopefully they will be set up for it well enough after the end of BSG 4.5 and it could answer lots of small unanswered questions about how it all started.
If 4.5 will put us at the end of the "all this will happen again" circle, this could be able the beginning of it.

On the 1st Cylon war, sounds great at first, but then I remember that it ends in an armistice that is a surprise to half the fleet. And thats it...

Kind of anticlimactic :/

The first cylon war has 12 years of combat to cover, I'm sure they can drum up at least one movie for it.

I wouldn't put money on any 'new' battlestars or anything between the 2 wars.

I'd say 1 will be the first cylon war, one set on a planet with resistance type stuff, would prefer it to be a colony other than caprica. and the third would be set sometime during the ragtag fleet era.
Or something.



Thereís nothing like the truth skewed into the mind of the insane.

The First Cylon war has to be in there.

I'd be interested to see some more of Galactica and Peggy going on missions together as well. Be great to see 2 Battlestars and their Viper compliments really going at it in some big scraps.

Then, maybe a film from the Mini-series showing what happened at the Scorpion Shipyards in detail, and any pockets of resistance that held back the Cylons, although there may not be enough material for that, and it may be fairly depressing if you're on the Colonials side! Guess it could work from the Cylon perspective though....

Everything but Caprica...      ...it will surely suck. There are more than enough Soaps...
I hope you\'ve learned something from our little games...

Im not sure if i would want another show......

Dont get me wrong I Love BSG. Best sci-fi drama I have seen on tv in a long time.

But BSG has a story. It has a beginning, a middle, it will have and end.

Another show might ruin all that magic. Might be better to let it die on a high, go out as a TV great, and not show endless sequels or prequels. Which has happened to other major sci fi shows *cough* *cough*

^Very good point there... But if they make movies I'd like to see the cylon side of the events... Or like Wolfy said from the both sides at the time of attack to the Colonies.

I think almost all of us want to see the 1st CW. Might be nice to see Galactica kicking arse rather than having to run away from everything. :)
