Sci-Fi Channel reveals online plans for Battlestar Galactica (http://www.greatlink.org/shownewsitem.asp?item=4703)

Craig Engler, the Sci-Fi Channel's General Manager of Interactive Content, spoke to the UK’s SFX Magazine (June 2005 Issue) about the channel's future online plans for Battlestar Galactica.

Sci-Fi hopes "to continue podcasting behind-the-scene titbits by [Executive Producer Ron Moore] during the production of Season 2", these will be in the form of weekly chats. When the new season starts, expect more podcasts from Ron for every episode. Commentaries will be made available for each episode on the day of broadcast, and will not be located on any future DVD release.

Sci-Fi also plans to launch an official Battlestar Galactica Wiki site (an unofficial one already exists). Based on Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, fans will be able to add and edit content for the site. Engler hopes that this will "give our fans a chance to share their enthusiasm online. We’re giving them an outlet that makes them feel more closely tied to the show...[hopefully], all the Battlestar fans [will] help us build the best Battlestar site in the world."

If all that isn’t enough, Engler reveals that Sci-Fi are "looking into videoblogging", a filmed diary of BSG’s cast and crew.

:p ;) :D :cool:

Sweet, looking forward to more podcasting, hopefully some of the cast and crew will join RDM. :D And the videoblogging looks like it's gonna be good too.
