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*

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.
