A Small BSG Season 4 Spoiler

I just saw a small Battlestar Galactica season 4 spoiler at SyFy Portal.  I have to say that I'm a little annoyed at reading this piece of information.

Basically, the spoiler says that BSG is adding a new female character to the cast.  Her name is Kendra Taggert (same initial as Starbuck, coincidence? ) and she's a Major who was stationed on Pegasus.  Supposedly Major Taggert went a little loopy after the initial cylon attack (a la Starbuck?!)

I'm not thrilled at all that BSG would introduce a new character at this late stage.  Ron Moore had already said that the show is moving into its third act in a 3-act structured play.  I would much rather TPTB focus on the stories involving the main characters we all come to love and care about through out the years.

Also I'm a little annoyed at Ron Moore's propensity at recycling his ideas.  Case in point:  the much overly used flashbacks, the "head figures" that nobody else can see for multiple characters, the tendency to use intercut scenes, and now another loopy young female character...

I wonder if this new character is being setup to be the last cylon?  Why else introduce a new character when the story is moving towards its finale? *sigh*

Mick,

I just went online and booked the tickets for me and ClairdeLune for Dragon*Con. So yap, we are going!

I'm very excited at the prospect of meeting you and Laurie in person! I hope Jordayna gets to go too!

As for the dinner on Saturday, I'm leaning towards going since we have to find a place to eat anyway. But I couldn't pay for the dinner while I used PayPal to register for the Con, so I'll have to call them later. We may not have any control over whether we get to go--the seatings maybe all sold out by now.

I tried to book the Con Hotel, but the website says it's all sold out for those days. Have you decided where you are going to stay?

We don't know where we are going to stay, or if we are. Atlanta is about 30 minutes away, so Shawn has mentioned just driving in. Me, I would rather be downtown so we can enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about driving late and such. Plus, we have never been away together overnight without the kids, so that would be nice. It would also be nice to not have to do dishes!!!!

We still need to talk about it some more, but with Shawn on jury duty during the day then owrking at night this week, it's making it kind of difficult. I will let you know as soon as we decided.

Oh it would be cool if you guys can stay overnight so we can party!

So you are planning to go to the Con sans the kids? That sounds really nice. Also it's nice that Shawn is going there with you!

Poor Shawn, jury duty is no fun!

Please keep me informed of your plan. Also maybe I should mention this at the Realm... Laurie is going to Dragon*Con too, isn't she?

Yes, Laurie is goin, too. And we are planning to go sans kids.

I am mailing in the form this morning--I am torn about the guest banquet thingy. Shawn said we could go if I wanted, but I'm just not sure, especially since I don't know anything about it. I tried to look up info about past banquets, and didn't recognize some of the guests (although one year one of the people was Ray Bradbury). I'm thinnking now of not getting tickets for that, and then calling (like you) if I change my mind. Plus, the pics look like the dress might be a little nicer than casual, and I don't think Shawn would be into that! (he's a jeans kind of guy). I will definitely keep you up to date with our plans. Next I guess is I have to try to find a hotel!!!!
