The Sound of Crickets "Chirping" is NBC-Universal Still Lacking a Profitable "Battlestar Galactica" Franchise

What have we learned from casually observing Universal Studios handling of the "Battlestar Galactica" property for the past few decades?

1. That a corporation cannot have a profitable Science Fiction media franchise if they simultaneously hate the property with every fiber of their corporate being (Universal Studios hates "Battlestar Galactica"), and try to do something with it at the same time.

2. That the most irrational and pig-headed foundation Universal Studios could have tried to lay for "Battlestar Galactica" in attempting to build a future for the property was financing Ronald D. Moore's garbage, which was a simultaneous "slap" in the face towards the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and an entity not really being "Battlestar Galactica" at all.

3. That repeatedly assigning the same individuals to the property who have no combined talents whatsoever (Ronald D. Moore, David Eick, Bryan Singer) will repeatedly yield zero dividends for the property.

What is the prognosis for the badly ailing "Battlestar Galactica" property due to Universal Studios repeated idiocy?

Extremely promising, as long as the poor thing is sold to someone else.
