Tidbits from the BSG 'verse...

Buffy and BSG (and comics) fans will be delighted with the upcoming Dark Horse 5 issue series centered around Seth Green's character Oz from the Buffy series - also written by Jane Espenson! SciFi Wire

There have been several previews of the region 1 season 4.0 DVD release (January 6, 2009) bumping around the web. Check it out at The Digital Bits, Trek Web, and of course the official Battlestar Galactica DVD site.

Last week SciFi Wire posted a spoiler-free piece (general setting description) about the BSG post-series final The Plan.

Ron Moore is listed as USA Today's #10 in it's Top 100 People of 2008:
Battlestar Galactica's executive producer should prepare to break fans' hearts with the final episode, though the first half of his final season offered enough surprises to tide us over. On the bright side, he doesn't plan to stop working after the show ends, so expect much more must-see sci-fi to come.

Ron has been pretty busy lately (Is he ever not?) putting out a little PR for his beloved BSG and other related scifi ventures. Check out his interviews at AMC TV's Scifi Scanner and Kate O'Hare's Hot Cuppa TV blog; Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. Both via Trek Web

It's still not too late to audition to host the Auction Network's coverage of the BSG Propworx auction! That is, if you're anywhere near Universal City, Ca today.

Speaking of fan participation, the LA Times promises heavy coverage of Battlestar Galactica as the series comes to an end, and is open to any questions you may want to ask the cast and crew. Also check out this LA Times feature Faces to Watch: Tahmoh Penikett by Denise Martin.

Writer Eric Nylund's comic Battlestar Galactica: The Cylon War is coming in January 2009, and will be a prequel to the TV series. Eric's other writings include novels for the Halo and Gears of War series, and none of those are too far of a stretch away from BSG content.

Get 'em while they're hot! Scripts for the Caprica series have been posted here. Do I even have to warn about spoilers for this? via Galictica Sitrep

Galictica Sitrep also has some very pretty billboard pictures from the LA area promoting "The Final Episodes". What's the deal with chopping the top of everyone's head off?
