Confirmed to attend so far are creator Ron Moore and cast members Tricia Helfer, Katee Sackhoff, Mary McDonnell and Grace Park. More will be announced in the coming days.
Moore’s re-imaging of the 1978 series ran for four seasons from 2004-09. At the recent ATX festival, he recalled his initial hesitation in doing a series reboot of NBC’s late-’70s original.
“I had done 10 years of [Star] Trek ,and I wasn’t sure I wanted to go back into space again,” he said about being approached to do the project by exec producer David Eick in 2002. He thought about it over a weekend and then came on board.
On another note, so far there’s been no indication that Moore’s current series, Starz’s Outlander, will be coming to the confab, but this might make it more likely since he will be there with Battlestar. Stay tuned.
Syfy has scheduled the BG reunion panel for 2:30 PM Thursday, July 20, at in Ballroom 20. The confab runs July 19-23.
