    1800?? That's almost on par with The Phantom Menace!

    Only $2Million? I could swear I heard several times from legitimate sources it was $5Million. If it was only $2M, and they have all those files now, they should definitely do more if it doesn't bomb

    If you continue reading, later in that paragraph he said it gained more financing, although it remained very cost effective.

    Does anyone know if there are any concept art pieces or beauty renders for the "prime condition" Galactica or any of her support ships for this project online anywhere? Of a compaison of the "new" CIC with the one from the most recent show?

    Considering how sparse such information was for NuBSG, I highly doubt you're going to see anything substantive for some time, if ever. Doug Drexler usually did a good job putting some stuff on his blog, but that's about it from any official sources that I can recall.

    Doug definitely was. I'm pretty sure Mojo was, too, as he disappeared from his blog around the time they went into post. Being all CG, that was a really long time.

    Does anyone have a link to Drexler's FB page? I can't find it.
