I never knew Moore was behind Dragonriders of Pern. Really breaks my heart trying to imagine the series that could have been, having seen what he did with BSG.

Thanks for that. I don't have access to the show this month, so I can't look at the weekly BSG threads...and I'm having a bit of withdrawal.

I remember reading about the deal falling through. Creative differnces or something like that.
It's interesting to see Moore's career as apposed to Braga's.

I kinda remember hearing about it, then sometime later I heard that it had fallen through sometime before, so I've never gotten the details.

What is Braga up to these days?

Maybe you've heard of his awesome new show Threshold that lasted 9 whole episodes. Maybe you haven't.

And before that was Voyager where he basically turned on Moore (after DS9 ended and he came abord the writing staff) and he ended up leaving the show and Paramount.
Moore wanted to make Voyager better with story arcs and Braga didnt think we would be able to comprehend that.

When I finally got into BSG, the first thing I thought of was "this is what Voyager should have been". The supply problems, the damage to the ship, the human tension, an enemy that presented a real threat.

I totally agree!
Voyager didnt struggle like Battlestar does.
They hit the reset button too much.
