Ronald D. Moore has never done Science Fiction. He also has never done what is known to be...."Battlestar Galactica"....He doesn't do fantasy or anything remotely connected to it.
Ronald D. Moore does Soap Operas. That's all he does. Nothing more, nothing less. His "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series starring Edward James Olmos (the frowning guy in everything he does) was a Soap Opera with the...."Galactica"....name inexplicably attached to it. He does Soap Operas repeatedly because it is the easiest form of melodrama to write.You plot your story points and then you connect the dots with boring melodrama in between:
1. He loves her.
2. She loves him.
3. The love is forbidden.
4. The love is timeless. (In this case, Time Travel)
5. The love triumphs against all odds and over all.
That is the plot of...."Outlander".....That's it. It's also the plot of every network Soap Opera going back 50 years. And the plot of every dime store paperback novel going back 100 years. Any window dressing thrown in (Science Fiction) doesn't make it Science Fiction.
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.
