One of the problems we BSG jihadists face is that people are stubborn. No matter how many times we drill it into them, some people just don't get that this show kicks their behinds. What's needed, clearly, is a Top 10 list! So here for your future BSGvangelical work is The Top 10 Reasons Battlestar Galactica is Better Than You. You're welcome.


Of course, this site hasn't been fully converted yet either. But I've gotten a start on it -- the Statement of Purpose has now been cleansed. Perhaps this, and the new graphics (thanks to IJD GAF for the forum one), will make it clear to doubters that I'm not just whistling Boxey here.

Is Ron Moore going to submit five-minute podcasts which consist of him smoking an entire pack of cigarettes in one massive inhalation, and then cackling about how fracking awesome Eddie and Mary are? 8)

Frak. I've gotta PHP that section so those errors will quit happening (replaced by new ones).

If I refuse to abide by this new order, can I start my own five minute star trek site as a protest?

Boy, I picked the WRONG time to come back to these forums...

I mean, I haven't even watched a whole episode of BSG. Hope that doesn't make me a sinner here now.

IJDGAF, shouldn't that be the TOS Galactica:



, not the Ent-A (Forgive me Zeke). If you crop, edit, flip, and resize one like this, you ought to be able to whip up a more conformal avatar in half an hour or so.

I still maintain the Dreadnaught/Battleship/Whateverit'scalled in Starcraft was modelled after that thing. Nobody else believes me.

I'm confused. If this is FM-BSG, why does the heading above the list say "Five Minute Voyager"?

Here's the Starcraft battlecruiser:
http://www.rpgclassics.com/subsites/...tlecruiser.gif

I think I've always compared Starcraft's battlecruiser to another computer game's ship: The Ur-Quan Dreadnought
http://starcontrol.classicgaming.gam...s/urq5_sc2.gif

But they're all relatively similar. (Well, okay, the Ur-Quan ship is green.)

I personally think it looks like the JX-359 Battle Cruiser from the series "Planet X"

(it was short lived, never made it past the 1st episode before being pulled because of questionable content. Think Zeke post questionable content.)

The word is "opposed", not fought. And tuck your shirt in if you're going to be out in public.

I'm sure Leto II would heartily approve of all this, and so do I.

Down with the unbelievers!

Okay, you've had your fun. Can we have the regular, NORMAL site back now? Seriously, even BSG gets stale after awhile. Not that I've ever seen it. I'm still in broadcast-TV-only purgatory.

[Sneaky-Ninja-Ginga!]There are ways to get to all the old content, so now that I've figured that out I don't really mind anymore. :wink:[/Sneaky-Ninja-Ginga!]

We're all missing the point here. The other series were cast out from the 12 subsites of 5m.net... and soon they will return...

The only way to prevent it is to stop the subsite heads fraternising with the old content...

Or else you'll be driven out, with a rag-tag group of followers - forced to produce a fiver every 33 minutes or be exterminated by the forces of that which you once shunned...
