The Cylons were created by Man.
They Rebelled.
For Ten Years Man battled Machine
until one day the Cylons vanished!

Forty years later, the Cylons return with a vengeance!
The Twelve Colonies of Man are destroyed and the last surviving Battlestar
must lead a ragtag, fugitive fleet in search of the lost Thirteenth Colony of Man -- EARTH!



BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE SECOND COMING

tagline: "THE EVIL ROBOTS ONLY EDITION"

Basic details: While I love nuBSG, I am more of a Classic Battlestar Galactica Fan. The original 1978 series is my Star Wars! So I wondered if it would be possible to inject some classic BSG flavor into the 2003 remake without it becoming cheesy or feel like a retro narrative like my previous Trek edits. I wanted to create a respectful homage to my beloved childhood series while retaining the darker and character driven elements that make nuBSG so successful.

To achieve this effect, I have removed all the Human Cylons and added music from the original series soundtrack.

In this alternate version, the story is solely from the perspective of the Colonials. The Cylons are simply evil killer robots, a dark force of nature that sweeps in and exacts its revenge on their creators. No Mission from God or Mommy/Daddy issues for these Cylons!
Just kill, Kill, KILL!!!!

So Say We All!

Funny you should ask.

Originally I had no intention of doing another BSG edit. It was going to be a one time thing.

But now I have an idea for another one. :-D

I don't want to say too much yet, except it will NOT be a sequel to this EVIL ROBOTS ONLY EDITION.
It will be firmly set in the nuBSG universe.

But next up, is my long hinted at SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN edit. (shameless self promotion!!!);-)
 
Okay. Think someday there shall be a sequel to the Evil Robots only edition? Very intrigued to see what u come up with for the next one.

Very nice. I actually remember watching that on the SciFi channel when I was younger. they'd always have it back to back with Bionic Woman. Wasn't a big fan of old tv shows. But over break, ended up watching a lot of Gunsmoke, Daniel Boone, and The Rockford Files with my girlfriend's Dad. So, I'm starting to develop a fondness for old school shows now.
 
Holy Crap that trailer gave me chills and makes me realize just how ingrained BSG is in the memories of childhood. Man, so many good edits coming out lately!

BWAH HA HA HA!:noidea:
 
^ That is Wacked! LOL!:lol:
 
Anyone having any DL issues? Amatar states files parts 5 and 15 are missing but all looks good on my end.:)
 
I had no problem with it, but that was a few days ago, Bob, try downloading those specific parts and see if they still look online, sometimes they look like they're online but aren't for some reason.

Part 15 is not downloading.

Yes, for some reason MU says the File is Temp. Unavailable. Have no idea what that means.:-o

So I am presently uploading File 15 again, people can me PM for it until the Links become updated.:)

I don't think you'll need to update the dlc links. The unavailable part will pop up again, even if it can take it days to do so. Making files temporarily unavailable is something MU is quite fond of, for whatever reason.
 
Is there a file service that doesn't do this kind of thing?? This always seems to happen when I try to get a new edit:p.
 
^ I don't think there's a "perfect" file host for our purposes. MU does this, RS deletes files very fast, and others out there use captchas, which means you have to be in front of your computer to type the codes for each part.
