Ronald D. Moore Proved That He Was No Rick Berman When It Came To Honoring What Came Before


Rick Berman has gone down in television history as "The Greatest Science Fiction Television Producer of All Time." Not only did he thoroughly understand what "Star Trek" was as it was originally laid out in the original series starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, but he also built on the proud legacy of the Shatner / Nimoy series in "Star Trek - The Next Generation", "Deep Space Nine", "Voyager", and "Enterprise." Rick Berman's love of "Star Trek" was evident in every single episode of every of the above series he produced.

Ronald D. Moore on the other hand, didn't give a shit about the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. Ronald D. Moore was a neophyte television producer on a "Frat House Boy Rampage" self indulging himself over the fact that he was given the inexplicable opportunity to executive produce a television series called "Battlestar Galactica" that had absolutely nothing  to do with "Battlestar Galactica" as it was originally laid out in the 1978 series. Ronald D. Moore's "gig" with the old Sci-Fi Channel was a sad example of self indulgence carried as far as any human being could take it. Never in my life had I witnessed a television producer so unbelievably wrapped up in himself as he continued to crank out episodes of his low rated series that no one wanted to watch and wasn't watching. Moore's attitude all along was..."What can I get out of this? How can the world love me more while I'm doing this? How can I stick it to the fans of the original 1978 series while I'm having my personal orgy of self love?" With Ronald D. Moore, it was never about building on what came before with the 1978 series (which was some damn good stuff), but rather building a personal ego project for himself. Not only did Ronald D. Moore not like the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series, but he also didn't like its fanbase either. The 1978 series and its fanbase kept getting in the way of Ronald D. Moore trying to pleasure himself while doing his "GINO" series.

Because of this, Ronald D. Moore has gone down in history as the "Worst Science Fiction Television Producer of All Time."
