Son of a bitch, I almost went a whole year without thinking about the kick to the taint that was the Battlestar Galactica series finale. (SPOILER ALERT) So, after a long and arduous journey, the BSG crew make the final jump and arrive to Earth (Our Earth. 200,000 years in the past). And, restart their lives with a collective “fuck it” by tossing their ships into the sun and giving up all their comforts and identity. 30,000 plus people dumped on Earth, with no shelter, food or medicine, with the only form of amusement of fucking the indigenous Neanderthals, leading me to believe that I’m the descendant of a Human-Cylon-Neanderthal love triangle? Ridiculous! Don’t even get me started on whole Starbuck kooky ghost/angel thing. Argh, I just remembered the 6 and Baltar Angels. *sigh (END SPOILER ALERT)
So, yeah, would you like to see a followup story on humans getting sand in their vaginas and having orgies with Neanderthals? Well, according to Edward James Olmos, we WILL find out what happened to William Adama after the events of the Battlestar Galactica series finale, because he’s at work on a sequel we’ll all get to see “pretty soon.”
While discussing his film Selena during Hispanic Heritage Month, the conversation (as you might expect) eventually came around to BSG, and Olmos said:
“I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don’t know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will. …
“I want to know what he’s doing right now, don’t you? I kind of was left with him sitting about to build his cabin, so God almighty I’d like to know what’s happening to him right now. In many moments throughout the day, I’ll think, ‘I wonder what he’s doing? What the heck is he up to? What the heck are those people up to?’ Here they were 200,000 years ago on this earth. They came from the experience that they came from. All I can tell you is: aren’t you guys curious as to what happened to them?”
Bill building a cabin and eventually forming early Scotland (presumably) is just pouring salt on a sore wound. Let it rest dude. And dude, given where the show left off in mankind’s history … isn’t there already a sequel written? It’s called the Bible.
