New York Comic Con 2017: Peter David to Write Battlestar Galactica for Dynamite
Dynamite Entertainment has announced the ultimate Battlestar Galactica series that’s been nearly 35 years in the making – The Classic Battlestar Galactica team Vs. the New ones from Ron Moore and Sy Fy Channel! THE crossover project bringing together the continuities of both the classic 1978 and reimagined 2003 BSG series. Peter David will write the series.
In the new Battlestar Galactica miniseries, the discovery of Kali – the last of the reptilian parent race that created the Cylons – serves as the catalyst for a face-to-face meeting between the crews serving Commander Adama (including Apollo and Starbuck, three characters immortalized on the small screen by actors Lorne Green, Richard Hatch, and Dirk Benedict, respectively) and Admiral William Adama (of the 2003 Reimagined BSG series, as played by Edward James Olmos). Sparks will fly as Lee Adama, Kara Thrace, and their fellow Viper pilots meet their strangely familiar counterparts… and discover the threat that two colliding universes of Cylons pose!
One of the cornerstones of their publishing line, Dynamite Entertainment has been developing Battlestar Galactica comic books since 2006, focusing on each incarnation of the franchise from the classic continuity of the 1978 television series, to the Galactica 1980 follow-up, and finally to the reimagined series aired on Syfy from 2003 through 2009.
