Relief And Sadness For BSG

The SciFi Channel may only have shown the first eleven episodes, but the series is almost completed its production cycle, and series creator Ronald D. Moore is both glad to see it finish and overcome with sadness.

"When I was at Trek, and doing 26 hours a year, the end of the season was more an occasion for the bleary-eyed and nearly brain-dead staff to plan their escapes from the Hart Building," said Moore. "It's also a reminder of just how fast this trip is going ... I can't decide if I'm just getting old or if the special quality of this experience is truly making it all seem like it's roaring past me at an impossibly fast pace."

When it made a startling return to the screen for a full season last year, "Battlestar Galactica" was met with applause and critical acclaim, and according to Moore, none of it would be possible without a very committed cast and crew who were all dedicated to making the show to as high a standard as possible.

"I found myself not only dissatisfied last night, but positively angry with myself at something I knew in my bones had fallen well below the bar I set for myself," he said. "Nothing pisses me off more than not making a show the best I think it can be and in this case, there was no one to blame but myself."

Moore also added that when writing episodes for the series, he often sits with classic episodes from the original '70s series playing in the background.

The second season of "Battlestar Galactica" is airing in reruns each Friday night on the SciFi Channel at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
