Anybody want books/additional media about life on "Earth?"

Whether their lives would be "less eventful," would you want to read something-- like a "world's of DS9" kind of book series that would chronicle the characters as they interact with the natives and build communities?

Re: Anybody want books/additional media about life on "Earth?"

Honestly, I'm more interested in what happened to Lee, Romo, Tyrol, Adama, Tigh now than I was before the finale. I would read the hell out of a Robinson Crusoe style book about Galen, King of Scotland. Lee had to start doubting his decision by the end of the week. He must have been getting horrible stares from the other survivors for the rest of his short life.

Leoben The Lumberjack. But, it's definitely over and we'll never know.

I'm more interested in additional media covering the 1st Cylon War and maybe Adama's stint as commander of the Battlestar Valkyrie.

That's where I'm at.

I can understand people what to see the follow up and what happens to the characters that are left. And it's not like we (I) could stop them if the studio wanted to make them. But for my part, the book is closed on Galactica's story.

Re: Anybody want books/additional media about life on "Earth?"

If anything, I'd like to see a novel...If a novel or two comes out every couple of years detailing some new aspect of the BSG universe, I'd be very into that.

I'd like to hear more about how god helps Lee Adama survive when the entire population of "Earth" realize what a huge mistake they've all made in giving up their technology.

"Hey. Yeah, you, the asshole that's been eyeballing me all day. Why don't you go down to the river and drink up a bunch of water and think about how nice that it's not rationed to a thimble a day. If you're still pining for the paradise of the Fleet after that, come back here and we'll make you a nice cozy two-by-six box to stay in with all the comfort you grew accustomed to on the way here."

All you have to do is take a look outside. Humanity survives for 150,000. For the last 3,000 years humanity is walking the path that lead to the near destruction of the colonies. In real terms, Lee made the right choice. Hopefully we'll make the right choice when it's our turn.
