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*

Forgot to tell you that I chose "xwacky" for my badge name, and "ClairdeLune" for yours. I hope it's okay with you.

Thanks for doing this. It's fine. Though I would have preferred "Liebestraume" which is what I go by on Sci-Fi forums. Is it too late to change? No worries if it is. Just curious.

Oops! I thought you might be using a different screen name on the Skiffy board, but I didn't remember what it was. *head banging wall*

I'll call the Con office tomorrow to see if I can still change it. I was planning on calling them anyway to find out more info about Saturday's banquet.

Mick, this is what I found out:

The guests of the Con (i.e. Jamie, Katee...) should be given the tickets to the banquet, but it's their decision whether or not they will attend. So there's no guarantee who's gonna be there.

As to the dress code for the banquet, she says she's seen people dress anywhere from shorts & Hawaiian shirts to tuxedos!

She also said seatings to the banquet should be available through June/July, but August is pushing it...

It would be fun if we all go to the banquet as a group, between you, Shawn, Laurie, Brad (is he coming too?), qqzj, and me, we are almost able to get a whole table...

Hmmm, sounds like fun (and dnag it, I just mailed in my form for tickets today without paying for the banquet!!!!{{bangs head}}

Did you by any chance tell Laurie this? Is this something you guys want to do? I know Shawn would do it for me. Do they book the tables ahead of time, or is it get your seat as you come in? If they book it as you order, should just one person get all the tickets and then everyone else pay them back?

I will email Laurie about this. I don't know if Brad is coming (I don't know if he's decided yet).

OT--I joined the Sci-Fi site and was posting today in the Bunny thread. There was a really good discussion going on about Lee, his relationship with Bill, stuff with Dee, etc. I had mentioned you a couple of times (basically saying how much you love a good discussion and how much I love reading your thoughts) and I "met" a friend of yours. Her screen name is Liebestraume. She said she's known you for years!

Just let me know what you think about tickets to the banquet. It sounds like we have a little time to decide, but if we're going to do this, we should probably go ahead and get the tickets!

Don't worry about not purchasing the banquet at this time. I didn't either. I think we are pretty safe if we decide sometimes before the end of July. The lady I talked to said she'll tell her webmaster to put the link to pay with PayPal back for buying the banquet seating (the link was there before, but for some reason, it got taken out). Even if we can't pay it with PayPal, I can just call her back to buy them over the phone. Come to think of it, if we all decide to go, I should call her on the phone to request we all get seated at one table.

I meant to post a blurb at AR about going to Dragon*Con, but I keep forgetting to do so. I should let Laurie know soon, and I want to find out if she want to go the the banquet or not.

Speaking of Skiffy board, Liebestraume is ClairdeLune AND qqzj!
She's having a "multiple personality" syndrome!

Thanks for letting me know about what's happening in the "bunny thread" at skiffy! I haven't been there in ages (well, since the season was over). Got to check it out. What screen name did you register there at skiffy?

LOL--I think I talked to Claire a couple of times in chat. I wonder if she remembers me? I actually wondered if it was her that posted. I registered with the same name as AR--I couldn't really think of anything else!

I emailed Laurie a little while ago with the info you found out. I told her to let me know about the banquet.

'Kay, it's done! I called the Dragon*Con office earlier today, and the lady switched your badge name to Liebestraume. :)

I also asked about the dinner banquet. Basically, it's the "award ceremony" where they pass some awards to some of the guests, special guests, special special guests... Anyway, she told me that banquet tickets are given to the guests of the Cons, but it's entirely individual guest's discretion whether he/she choose to attend. So she can't predict who's going to be at the banquet.

At this point, there are still plenty of seatings available for the banquet. But she did say that based on how things are going, the banquet will be sold out this year. She can't swear for sure, but from her past experience working for the Con, she predicts they will still have spaces available in June and July, but August can be iffy.

Thanks for doing this, girl! Could you call her one more time to see if she could fit ClairdeLune and stilettos81 on that badge as well? You know, this way all my three personalities get to attend!

So, on to hotel ... looks like the homeless shelter is out, where so you want to stay?

Oh wow!! I have been so busy with Real Life I haven't been on LJ so much lately...and look what I missed! I didn't know you were coming to DragonCon! That is SOOOO awesome!! Gosh, we could be like the group of bunnies in that vid someone linked to, where they said they had as much fun meeting each other as they did meeting the celebrities (and I know Mick was as cool as JB and MMD!) so how much fun would FOUR of us have?!

Now I'm not going ot be able to sleep at the thoughts of it! :)

And X - I must know where you're getting your cool emoticons! I need some of those - lol!

Brad is too focused on our trip to Yosemite to think about DragonCon - in fact, I've been meaning to email you about that. We have to make reservations in only a few weeks! It's really slipped up on me. We have to decide a rough itinerary to know where we want to be when and all that. I would LOVE to come to see you, but Brad fears it's too far to drive. He wants to fly into Fresno. Is there a better (better as in CLOSER) airport? Could we fly into (or out of)somplace else and then not have to drive round-trip from Yosemite?

Sorry, that was a lot of questions! I'll try to email you tomorrow! :) I can't wait to meet you and Claire/Liebestraume/Stiletto (and I'm wishing I had a more clever user name - lol)

Sorry it took me all day to reply you--I had TONS of stuff I needed to do before we go to France this weekend.

Gosh, we could be like the group of bunnies in that vid someone linked to, where they said they had as much fun meeting each other as they did meeting the celebrities (and I know Mick was as cool as JB and MMD!) so how much fun would FOUR of us have?!

I'm excited just thinking about it! I'm sure we'll have a blast!

And X - I must know where you're getting your cool emoticons! I need some of those - lol!

Here's the link to my photobucket emoticon folder. You should find all the emoticons I have so far. I'm still adding to it whenever I get new ones, but that's where they'd be located.

Sorry, that was a lot of questions! I'll try to email you tomorrow!

No worry! Fresno airport is the closest to Yosemite. That's over 90 miles away depending on which part of Yosemite you guys are going. Where are you going to stay--a hotel or camping? Anyway, Fresno airport is a little over 100 miles away from Monterey.

I'd love to have you guys to come & visit. It's fun here too--much different from Yosemite of course. We are members of Monterey Bay Aquarium, so we can take you guy there for free without the hassle of waiting in lines. You are planning the vacation in the summer next year right? So it'd be perfect for the beaches here. I think you, Brad, and the girls would really enjoy Carmel's white sand beach!
