Comic-Con Video: The Science Behind Science Fiction Panel

By Stephen Cass | July 30, 2008 11:54 am

I have been laid low for the last few days by some dreadful lurgy I caught on the plane back from San Diego, but people have been hard at work behind the scenes putting together this edit of the video of our “Science Behind Science Fiction Panel” at this year’s Comic-con. From left to right you have Kevin Grazier (science advisor to Eureka and Battlestar Galactica), Jaime Paglia (co-creater and executive producer of Eureka), Phil Plait (Bad Astronomy blogger) and myself. We talked about how science makes its way into a script, how scientific accuracy is maintained (or not) and the value of retconning. Enjoy!

    Um…hi! I was wondering–they showed the Battlestar 4.5 promo at Dragon*Con–did you catch it? Would you happen to know where in the name of Kobol it is?

    Cheers!

  2. Brittany: that promo was given to us by the SciFi channel for showing at Comic Con and Dragon Con, so we can’t put it up: I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until SciFi decides to release it, sorry.

    That is sad to hear, but thank you for the info! A bunch of us can quit the search.
