If You Don't Understand What You Own, Don't Retain Ownership of It or Mess With It


Available on

Just looking at this trading cards folder for season four of "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only), it is blatantly evident that NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore had no clue what "Battlestar Galactica" was, and had no business retaining ownership of it and messing with it like this.

1. "Battlestar Galactica" is not a contemporary crime show ala' the business suit wearing cast members of "L.A. Law" or "Boston Legal."

2. "Battlestar Galactica" is not contemporary location shooting in Vancouver British Columbia with slummy apartment buildings, automobiles, and sunny skies in plain view...supposedly taking place on some alien world.

3. "Battlestar Galactica" grants no one (not even the legal copyright owners) the luxury of such lazy producing and scriptwriting like this. You either do it right (the 1978 series)...with majestic scope.... or you don't do it at all.

4. If SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore wanted to do a status quo and contemporary legal series with business suits on the order of "L.A. Law" and "Boston Legal"....they should have done one instead of dragging the "Battlestar Galactica" brand name through the mud and using it as the title of this series.

5. Only bone headed studios executives and Ronald D. Moore himself would have failed to see how ludicrous it looked to have characters dressed in contemporary business suits in the known iconic space fantasy / adventure series "Battlestar Galactica" from 1978. The very series known for having everything in the series not looking like it came from Earth. It's so ludicrous that even the cover photo on this trading card album looks ludicrous. The brand name "Battlestar Galactica" simply never blended well with such lazy and half-ass producing and writing as this.

6. If you legally latch on to a brand name and don't know or care what the brand name is supposed to be. Stop right there and move on to another project as SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore should have done.

7. This project ("GINO") was a massive error in judgment implemented by people who not only had overall hostility towards what "Battlestar Galactica" really is (the 1978 series)....but who also weren't terribly talented in doing any sort of drama for television....whether it be erroneously titled "Battlestar Galactica" or something else.


Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on

And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
