No more so than you deserve :lol:

(Promoted a day before me indeed!!!)

Lol, you'll never let that go, will you. Btw, it still says Squad Leader on your sig, and Squad Leader is a Sergeant IIRC :roll:
As darth_azabrush mentioned, Paranoia would give players a chance to play Cylons and secret organizations smoothly.

"You're a Cylon traitor!" Zap! Zap! Zap!

See! Wasn't that easy!
I've been away from this thread for a while, but I noticed some people early on mentioning that you wouldn't be able to run a game set in the new series since it would be hard to explain why military and civilians would team up.

I look at this much like the Starship Troopers RPG. You wouldn't have Mobile Infantry characters teaming up with non-MI characters in a campaign and the same would be true for Battlestar Galactica. Basically the players and GM would decide if they wanted to run a military centric or civilian centric campaign. There could be some crossover characters, like a civilian scientists, or perhaps other specialists, but on a whole it would either center of military or civilian personnel. The SST RPG gives you the same kind of options for campaigns. Players can play MI characters, civilians, or citizens of the Federation.

I also think that the basing a BSG RPG on the ealier series would kill it. While there might be a few people out there that dislike the new series, on a whole there are more people out there that like the new series than don't. Plus, as some suggested, an easy one-off book in the series for the classic series probably wouldn't be too much to ask anyway. But the main book should be set in the fleet immediatly following the attack and exodus from The 12 Colonies.
Heh. True I suppose.
But... there was a listing given, and by Margaret Weis Productions who are still in business with d20 Dragonlance and Serenity RPG.

The September 2006 release date may be wrong, but I still suspect that MWP has indeed gotten the license.
Follow through on the license is another story altogether.

EDIT: that this is listed as "Quick-start" rules may lend further credence to actually meeting the proposed date.

It is also listed here (which is not Amazon):

Here's a article explaining them having the game and using the serenity rules system for it.

Well, I'm not surprised someone has picked up the licence. I imagine it had quite a high cost, given how popular BSG is at the moment. Still, given how much I like BSG, I hope they do well with it.
