While I don’t do this often, I’d like to note that I’ve written an editorial/opinion piece on who the last Cylon could possibly be here. It’s a pretty solid work, laying out evidence as to who the Last Cylon is and why.

Thinking of dressing up at the next Battlestar Galactica convention? Well, you need the proper uniform if you go as an original series Colonial Warrior. Why do I ask? Well the fine folks over on the English version, have selected [[Uniforms (TOS)]] as the Featured Article this month, so you can be sure it has a lot of information of the uniform specs, if you were going to create one yourself. I been told by Spencerian that our site was used before for this purpose for the current series uniforms. So check it out today!

With the feedback we’ve received thus far, we’ve put up four member’s contributors picks up at our US Amazon Store.

Check it out here.

We’re still looking to add YOUR top 10 picks, so please feel free to post them as a response to this blog or at the Battlestar Forum!

According to the recent press release by La La Land Records regarding the [[Soundtrack (Season 3)|Season 3 soundtrack]], the [[Season 4 (2008)|final season]]’s premiere, “[[He That Believeth in Me]]”, will premiere on January 11, 2007. However, a spokesperson from the United States’ SciFi Channel indicated to Michael Hinman of SyFy Portal that the series would be released in “early 2008″ and that it would “not be January”, but was otherwise vague.

Calling all contributors and visitors to both the Battlestar Wiki and Battlestar Forum.

We’re looking to open up the floor for you guys to post your picks for the best products available online! Be it books, movies, music, electronics or even apparel, we’re looking for people to list what their top picks are for products from any categories listed on Amazon.com!

Now why is the reason for this?

Basically, we want to add personality to the Amazon aStores. Right now all they list is, well, Battlestar stuff. Frankly, we know there’s more to life than Battlestar — and the Playboy issue of Tricia Helfer! w00t! — so, anyway, we want to add variety, because that’s the spice of life!  To do that, we want to create sections for contributors top picks and visitor top picks. They will, of course, be sub-categorized from there (a section for books, another for movies, another for TV, etc.)

What I need from you guys is simply give me a list of Top 5 or Top 10 items you like. Feel free to be as inventive as you’d like. So provide a list either as a response to this blog post, or at the Battlestar Forum thread here.

Oh, and if you have an Amazon.com ListMania list, that’s even better, because we can simply integrate that into the aStores as well. Just give us a link to it!

So again, what I need are two things:

  1. Your top 5 or 10 pics for Amazon US or UK products. Or the Amazon.com ListMania link!
  2. Also please note whether or not you’re a contributor to the Wiki. If you contribute to the wiki, provide your user name so we can attribute you. ;-)

Looking forward to what you guys like! Maybe it’ll even spur some more conversation.

Our Amazon.co.uk store is online. If you are a viewer or member from the United Kingdom or European country, please check it out here.

Note that as with our Amazon.com store, we do get a small commission that helps fund our operation, with absolutely no additional cost to you. Get what you want, and we get to fund chronicling Battlestar Galactica.

So shop we all! :-D

The Battlestar Wiki is briefly mentioned in Whitney Matheson’s “Pop Candy” USA Today blog, where she replied to questions in her mailbag.

I’ve gone ahead and updated the Amazon aStore with new Battlestar items. Check it out.

Also, purchases made through the aStore will result in a kickback to the Wiki, so as to support our operational costs (servers, domain, all that good stuff).

So if you shop online, shop Amazon. Through us. ;-)

Just an FYI to everyone using or wanting to use the new skin.

I’ve ironed out the issues with the skin and it should work properly in all three major browsers: IE 6 and higher, Firefox, and Safari.
