Items of Note

Ronald D. Moore previews his BSG directorial debut, "A Disquiet Follows My Soul" for Sci-Fi Wire:

Sci-Fi Wire: What can you tell us about the episode? What kind of story is it?

Moore: It's a character piece. It's a smaller show; I designed it deliberately to be that way. I wanted to take a breath after the events, the shocking events, of the past couple of episodes. Things were happening huge. Revelations were coming one on top of another. And now I wanted to do a smaller piece that was just about people on the ship and where they are in their lives before the next giant arc just sort of pulls them along into even bigger events.

Ron also discussed Caprica:
Sci-Fi Wire: What's happening with Caprica?

Moore: Caprica is getting underway. We're putting the writers' room together as we speak. It's very exciting. It's a very different challenge. It's a very different show. I think there's a sense of "Well, Battlestar has set a very high bar." That makes everybody have to bring their A-game, and I think that's the spirit in which we're approaching Caprica.

Sci-Fi Wire: Knowing that you had Caprica on the horizon, did you hold back at all on wrapping up the Cylon mythology in Battlestar Galactica in order to give fans an incentive to tune into the new show? Or does Battlestar Galactica settle it for everyone?

Moore: Galactica is going to pretty much settle it. Caprica will be about how the people on the colonies developed the Cylons. And that has its own story to tell about how that came about. But in terms of the larger mysteries and mythologies and hows and the whys and how everything lays out on Galactica, we set out to answer as many of the questions that we could by the end of the show, and that's what we did. We didn't hold anything in reserve and say, "Oh, well, we'll deal with this over in Caprica."

Matt and Nat of the BSG Cast review Sometimes A Great Notion, and Nat talked with Battlestar Galactica's costume designer, Glenne Campbell in Pasadena at the site of the prop and costume auction.

Jamie Bamber spoke to TV Guide about working on the final episodes of BSG and what it was like to say goodbye to the show.

Sci-Fi Wire talked to Kandyse McClure about her arrival at closure for her work on Battlestar Galactica.

Bryan Lambert shares his thoughts on Dirk Benedict.

Excellent "You Are Dumb" link! I always wondered how Dirk was dealing with this whole BSG thing and now I know: not very well.

Good old Dirk - gave up the prospect of a plum role in BSG to appear in the UK's Celebrity Big Brother.

Wise career move.
