Attention BSG Fans


Ron Moore will discuss all things BSG with you if you join him on the picket line.  From today’s WSJ on the strike:

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Every Monday for the past month, Joel Dahl has been getting up before dawn so he can hit the back gate at Universal Studios when the striking “Battlestar Galactica” writers show up to picket. Mr. Dahl isn’t a writer himself, though he would like to be one. He’s a fan.

Earlier this week, as he marched alongside “Battlestar” writer and executive producer Ron Moore, he seized the chance to ask a question. He wondered whether there was a connection between a mercy killing in the recent “Battlestar’'-related TV movie “Razor” and a similar incident in “Star Trek: First Contact,” a movie Mr. Moore had worked on years ago.

“I never even thought of that,” Mr. Moore said, laughing. He wondered whether Mr. Dahl really was asking: “Did you know that you’re stealing from yourself?” (See Mr. Moore’s blog at

The elbow rubbing seems to be fun for all concerned. “I really enjoy hanging out here,” says Mr. Dahl, 23, who brings doughnuts in boxes he decorates with Battlestar themes. “I’m flattered and grateful,” says Mr. Moore, who adds that chatting about the show and dispensing career advice is the least he can do for such loyal fans.
