Screen Junkies is reporting that Commander Adama wants to head back to the Battlestar Galactica universe. Edward James Olmos, who played the commander on SyFy’s Battlestar Galactica remake, would like to do a graphic novel detailing what happened to Adama after the end of the series.

“I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don’t know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will,” he said during a press tour for Comcast on Demand. Their Hispanic Heritage Month programming includes the film Selena, in which Olmos played the title character’s father.

Olmos said he is currently looking for an artist to help him chronicle Adama’s life on Earth 200,000 years ago. “All I can tell you is: aren’t you guys curious as to what happened to them?”



I am one of the few who liked the finale and no, I’m not curious.

there’s more than a few who liked it, and I’m sure as time goes by more people will realize it was great. Well, I mean minus the Times Square sequence at the end, but you can chop that out.

I’m not curious either, but wish Olmos success.

Bill Adama cuts himself while shaving. He gets a nasty infection and dies because he had the bright idea of leaving all the technology on Galactica and flying her into the sun, including antibiotics.

I would be interested in anything BSG that he’s willing to produce. My wife and I both love this series. We did a marathon this summer, and with the exception of the two movies, loved everything. I would love to see a Cylon ship show up and the remaining “tribes” tackle the problem.

I detested the finale, and have downgraded my opinion of Ron Moore from brilliant to talented . That said, EJO is provocative, outspoken, and a true artist. I am interested in what he has to say. Of course, if Adama spent the rest of his days alone on a mountain top with only Laura’s grave for company, then it will be one long, probably boring soliloquy.
