Identify any moment in time when Universal Studios did anything with the "Battlestar Galactica" copyright or Science Fiction in general that generated unanimous and overwhelming enthusiasm from the vast majority of the population. You can't, can you?
Universal Studios attitude towards "Battlestar Galactica" and Science Fiction in general remains permanently locked into what it always has been....
A corporation on sleeping pills. A corporation as of this late date and currently, has yet to produce a genuinely popular Science Fiction movie or television franchise of any sort (ala' "Star Trek") unanimously embraced by the global population with love.
They did it once and only once. The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. But, Universal Studios doesn't want to repeat its successes of the past because they are chronically afraid of money.
Universal Studios present "Lackadaisical" corporate state towards "Battlestar Galactica" and Science Fiction in general is both internal and external. Emanating both from the "Black Tower" and anyone they presently do business partnerships with (Ronald D. Moore and Bryan Singer.)
Universal Studios presently and for the longest time has lacked the following towards both:
1. The drive to do something excellent
2. Inspired thinking
3. Creative sparks
4. The desire to make money
All of the above stem from the fact that Universal Studios has always lacked quality people working in its "Black Tower." People lacking drive, ambition, and risk taking. Old war horse people (in mind and body) who have been working in the "Black Tower" for far too long in desperate need of retirement and pink-slipping.
So, Universal Studios remains what it always has been. An immobile "bump on a log" corporation announcing new "Battlestar Galactica" movies every two years that never even reach pre-production, and farting out new low budget (and crappy) monster movies for the SyFy Channel. Rounded out with their patented, corporate "obliviousness" to what Science Fiction is.
