Those who have treated the "Battlestar Galactica" property poorly (primarily in the decade of the 2000s) are now having career difficulties and slipping even further into professional obscurity and oblivion.
Yes, fans of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series never got their revival movie of the series (and most likely never will), but something else has been happening which is suitable, substitute compensation on an intangible level.
Those involved in the deliberate trashing of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series, (primarily in the decade of the 2000s) have been seeing their careers taking an irreversible nose dive into oblivion.
Ronald D. Moore -
The year 2003 was supposed to have been the year that "Ronald D. Moore's shot at stardom had arrived." It was supposed to have been the year that Ronald D. Moore had emerged from the "Star Trek Staff Writer's Circle" of Rick Berman with a genius take on "Battlestar Galactica" that was supposed to propel Moore into the same stature as George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.
It didn't happen. The stealth marketing con game orchestrated by the Sci-Fi Channel (and implemented by "Abraham & Harrison") at the time kept Ronald D. Moore's name pumped up on "bulls**t steroids" as best it could and for as long as it could until Moore's take on "Galactica" might finally catch on with the public.
It didn't happen. Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica" was a severe, strategic misfire and the public just didn't warm to it and embrace it. It also didn't help matters any that Ronald D. Moore along with Bonnie Hammer, David Eick, and the stealth marketing thugs at "Abraham & Harrison" were publicly trashing the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in some deranged hope of pumping up Ronald D. Moore's ratings in such a deranged manner. "GINO" took a swift nosedive along with "Caprica", and Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica" (really an unpleasant take on "Star Trek: Voyager") was soon history.
What is Ronald D. Moore doing now? Some ambiguous Science Fiction pilot involving homosexual characters. This after all of his post-"GINO" projects were rejected by....everyone.
1. A Science Fiction project with Tom Cruise.
2. A supernatural pilot for NBC-TV.
4. "The Thing" remake script
Ronald D. Moore, who paid no respect whatsoever to the source material of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" or its fanbase (he quite frankly ridiculed both) at the time his "GINO" series was on the air, now finds literally every project he submits to anyone and everyone in Hollywood being rejected. Now that is "Poetic Justice."
Ronald D. Moore's Hollywood prospects have nose dived because he was never a hot property to begin with. His most fruitful days at the Sci-Fi Channel existed in the first place because as a would be hot commodity, he was being artificially sustained by the ruthless, on-line stealth marketing of the stealth marketing firm "Abraham & Harrison."
Bryan Singer -
Bryan Singer has bailed out on directing a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film a total of three times now. In 2001, 2009, and 2011. His career seems to be set on an irreversible negative trajectory much the same way Ronald D. Moore's is. He periodically announces a truckload of new projects he is interested in and very few of them (if any) ever become reality. Now that is "Poetic Justice."
Bonnie Hammer -
Bonnie Hammer has done everything she can do to try and turn the SyFy Channel into a hot, money making "hip" commodity. Unfortunately, she has trashed the "Battlestar Galactica" property along the way with both public statements of dislike for the original series airing in 1978 and its fanbase. The result? Her SyFy Channel chugs along as a typical, underwhelming cable channel that is not appointment viewing by any means. Now that is "Poetic Justice."
Universal Studios -
Their continued hostility and lack of vision towards the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series, the property overall, and its fanbase has resulted in the property not being a spectacular money maker for the studio. Now that is "Poetic Justice."
