Adama’s ‘So Say We All’ Story at Battlestar Exhibit in Seattle

I had the honor of attending opening night at the Battlestar Galactica Exhibit in Seattle, WA, where cast members and creators Edward James Olmos, Michael Hogan, Kate Vernon, Richard Hatch, Ron Moore and Glen Larson hopped on stage to answer the fans’ buzzing questions. One of my favorite moments was Olmos’s story of what happened on set during the first “so say we all” speech.

Here it is for you guys to watch! (Apologies for the shaky camera, there were 2,000 people packed in like sardines.)

I’ve captured more of the event, including the entire opening question segment and a the “Sex, Blood and Cylons” panel discussing the re-imagined series. Stay tuned!

Dragon*Con 2010 Photos: Parade, Costume Contest & Hallway Mania

\

Me with a group of 300 soldiers

Where else can you go to get your Star Wars, Star Trek, Tolkien, Wheel of Time, Dr. Who, Steam Punk, Harry Potter, Superhero, Comic, Gaming and Pirate fix? (Whew!) Why Dragon*Con, of course.

What’s donned as the largest sci-fi and fantasy convention in the world, or Disneyland on crack as I like to call it, is a four-day adventure into the deepest depths of Nerdvana. There’s almost too much to see, from art to panels galore to celebs and much, much more. The good news is that there are shorter lines than some of the other Cons (ehem, you know I’m talking to you Comic-Con), and you actually have a chance of getting to see what you came for.

However, despite the geek overload, I went (primarily) for one thing: COSTUMES! Here are the multitudes of photos I took from the parade, costume contest and creations seen wandering the hallways.

Stay tuned for Dragon*Con video highlights, plus more photos of The Wheel of Time and True Blood!

PS. I was kidding about Comic-Con (not). We attended that too. In case you missed it, be sure to check out our special Comic-Con episode

Oragami combines ancient art with fantasy and sci-fi characters

The Japanese art of paper folding, otherwise known as Origami, has been the vehicle for creating incredibly intricate creatures since the 17th century. These days, however, this traditional art form has merged with pop culture to bring us our favorite fantasy and sci-fi characters, including Yoda, dragons, robots, and even spaceships. Take a peek.

Best mode of transportation: The Spaceship

On a daily basis, I hear my friends talk about what car they’d love to drive. A BMW this or that. I don’t know about you, but there’s another form of transportation I’d kill to take to work every day: a spaceship!

In lieu of fans everywhere that agree, here’s a look at some of the coolest, creepiest, and funniest spaceships to ever to grace TV and film.

If you’re one of those people that loves a behind the scenes look at the architecture of such a ship, check out the blueprints for almost every Star Trek ship to date!

Here’s an interesting article and breakdown of these first two ships: Starship Enterprise vs. Battlestar Galactica: Who would win?

Death Star (Star Wars)

Though technically a space station, this moon-shaped creation needs to be on the list!

Shadow Vessel (Babylon 5)

Serenity (Firefly)

The coolest part about this ship is that, when it’s taking off, the lighted back end makes it look like (you guessed it) a firefly!

Stargate Atlantis

Though the exterior is also cool, it’s the gate room that makes the ships in any Stargate series unique!
