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*

'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!
