Why Do The Subjects of Science Fiction And "Battlestar Galactica" Always Cause These Two Entities to Cower?

Universal Studios - This is the studio that tried to define Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" series as a "Status Symbol Production" for themselves in the 2000s. When that didn't happen of course, Universal Studios shrunk away and quietly rode off into the night. Why does this studio always want "Status" from a Science Fiction movie / television production? A production that will make them the "Big Dude on Campus" within Hollywood? It never happens of course because Universal Studios never has access to the top talent in the producing and writing pools to make that happen for them. So, they always shy away from Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" despite their "Bi-ennial" movie announcements of the latter.

Bryan Singer - I suspect that the failure of "Superman Returns" has turned Bryan Singer into a cynical corporate drone (studio executive) against all Science Fiction movies and "Battlestar Galactica." He now seems to be a member of the "Universal Studios establishment." He contributes to the "Bi-ennial" Galactica movie announcements with no intention of ever making such a movie because he just doesn't care...the primary characteristic of a corporate drone. And his list of aborted movie and television productions continues to grow:

1. Excalibur
2. Six Billion Dollar Man
3. Logan's Run
4. X-Men: Last Stand
5. Jack The Giant Killer
6. Star Trek
7. The Munsters
8. Battlestar Galactica

This is corporate drone behavior at its worst.
