50,000 human survivors escape an attempted genocide on their worlds by a robot species with an armada of advanced ships giving chase amongst the stars. Only ONE legendary space warship known as a BATTLESTAR comes along as their protector, doing battle against impossible odds to overcome.
As a fan of SYFY’s BATTLESTAR GALACTICA - I was sad to see it go. Yea sure, Caprica was okay but it didn't replace the giant hole left by BSG. Its tense military drama mixed with end of the world religious tones and man/robot sexual kink was SYFY’s best show EVER, at least in my opinion. What made it even more special was the awesome battles between the Galactica and the Cylons.
There was the miniseries “Blood and Chrome” which showed a lot of promise to help ease the pain, but once that project ended, that’s it. They didn't expand on the idea which was really exciting- a move that has failed the BSG franchise. Pitiful dare I say!
So like every BSG fan I have to go back and rewatch the series just to get my fix every once and awhile. It left me wondering what the cast is up to in 2015- Adama, Laura, Starbuck, Apollo, Athena, Helo, Caprica, Baltar, etc.
So let’s pay a visit to some old friends and see what they're up to....
Edward James Olmos - ADMIRAL William “Husker” Adama
The 68 year old legend has been speaking about his Jewish roots lately while guest appearing on Marvels AGENTS OF SHIELD as Agent Robert Gonzales. He’s still married to Lynn Nadal and still has that bone-grit toughness showed over the years through so many great roles that he’s played
Mary MCDonnell - PRESIDENT OF THE 12 COLONIES Laura Roslin
63 year old Mary McDonnell doesn’t age! I swear to god I have seen her on Grey's Anatomy and on Major Crimes and she still looks the same!
Katee Sackhoff - Lieutenant Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
The 35 year old Oregon native has kept busy since the end of BSG.

Tahmoh Penikett-Karl "Helo" Agathon
Out of the crew that made up BSG, Tahmoh has had the coolest roles since the end of the show. Gadreel in CW's Supernatural and Paul Ballard in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse are two that come immediately to mind.
