Waiting for minimum critic reviews


When Battlestar Galactica reappeared in 2003-a revamp of the original series in which a "rag-tag fugitive fleet" of the last remnants of mankind flees pursuing aliens while simultaneously searching for Earth-it redefined what television science fiction should be about. Since then it has been critically claimed as one of the best shows on television while growing TV's strongest cult fandom of 2 million viewers. Now, as the series comes to its conclusion, fans are more eager than ever for more BSG.

Acclaimed television experts Lynnette Porter, David Lavery and Hillary Robson, authors of the top-selling unauthorized Lost guides, provide fans with an in-depth look at the history, politics, themes and philosophies of the hit show. Topics include:

--Battlestar Then and Now
--Positions of Power
--The Transformation of Baltar
--Aliens Among Us: Political Realities and the Culture of Fear
--Battlestar and the Bush Era
--Thirty Years of Battlestar Fandom
