    Who is John Galt?
    Yep. Almost financially ruined him, from what I remember hearing. IIRC, things were still in flux back then over who owned the property - Glen Larson still owned the movie rights and I don't think Universal really took any of it too seriously. The Singer/DeSanto effort back in 2000 looked like it might have finally followed in those footsteps, but a Perfect Storm of the events of 9/11, a split between Universal and MGM (also in 2001), Vivendi entering the mix and several other factors muddied the waters and halted that production for good, and killed any hopes of a continuation series. It wasn't until things settled down a couple of years later that BSG was resurrected, but in a totally different direction as a reboot. The rest is history...

    That trailer is achingly beautiful. It does break my heart that he didn't get to make the thing and now Baltar and Dr. Salik are gone.
