A recent archaeological dig in "Ancient Egypt" unearthed documents thousands of years old foretelling the "Apocalypse." According to the documents, giant robots called "Cylons" were "seeded" (deposited dormant) underneath all of the Earth's oceans. These "Cylons" are from the "12 Worlds of Mankind" thousands of light years from Earth (we never see this in the movie.) They were transported to Earth in vessels called "Battlestars" (we never see this in the movie either)...and soldiers called "Colonial Warriors" did the actual "seeding" (we never see this in the movie either.)
It's up to the Earth in the year 2397 to defeat these robots and restore the Earth to harmony.
Now...this is the typical...."Wall Street Mentality"....."Status Quo Manner"...."Bean Counting Imbecilic" way....Universal Studios would most likely reimagine "Battlestar Galactica" for the big screen.
Warp it....Twist it....."F***" it all up to Hell....make it unrecognizable....to what it once was before. Make it a clone of all of the recent "Giant Robot Movies" including "Transformers."
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
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 Amazon.com (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.
