Gaming: Battlestar Galactica's Moore at GDC 2006

Seems that my favorite scifi show's creator and producer, Ronald D. Moore, will be giving a keynote at this year's GDC in San Jose. Mr. Moore has taken a 70' cult series, which many of us geeks were fund of as children, and made it a great compelling sci-fi story. Battlestar Galactica is probably one of the best scifi series in recent times. Hell, it's the only TV show I still watch still, and after Firefly, the only TV series I've bought on DVD.

Ronald Moore was presented with the challenge of reinventing a beloved story, which is a challenge often presented to producers of games,” said Jamil Moledina, director, Game Developers Conference. “His example of creating one of the most brilliant and successful science fiction masterpieces in recent Hollywood history is a perfect inspirational case study to capture the imaginations of the game creation leaders who attend GDC.

It'll be interesting to see how Mr. Moore can share his knowledge and experience on how to create a better, stronger, more intriguing sequel, and how game devs will be able to apply this knowledge to game design.

I love the show as well, especially that Tricia Helfer (number 6!). I was trying to find a pic of her and discovered the whole cast on Rubberfaces.com - whoaa! talk about fun, would love to play with her in real life!
