If you’ve seen our previous blog post, you likely have a few questions as to what site we’re referring to, its objective, and other questions.

The site in question is Galactica Geek, and its objective is nothing less than going above and beyond other fan sites. Structured as a news magazine, Galactica Geek will not only provide news about Battlestar Galactica and its cast and crew, but also delve into both the source material and the fandom that it created. Not only does it aim to have interviews with cast and crew, but also provide insights into fan creativity… and that doesn’t mean fan fiction. It means art, prop replication, building your own uniform from the show and beyond.

It also means exploring the universe of Battlestar Galactica via social inquiry, and gives fans an outlet to express how the show changed their lives. Thus, Galactica Geek ranges from the serious issues that are presented in the show to the creative nature of BSG fans that the series tapped into.

For instance, one of Galactica Geek’s contributors learned to fly a helicopter because he was inspired by the Raptor pilots on the series.

Galactica Geek’s team consists of fans from all walks of life, including artists, professors, photographers, former members of the military — and, if you’re interested, Galactica Geek is always looking for people to contribute. Please note that everyone works for the site pro bono (although it would be nice for us to change that!), but the site is a great way to connect to the fandom, as content will be linked and shared with various websites including Battlestar Wiki, BattlestarGalactica.com, and more!

While Galactica Geek only has a teaser page at present, you can also find them on both Facebook and Twitter.
