Battlestar Galactica UN Panel Discussion

December will mark the 10th anniversary of the broadcast of the rebooted Battlestar Galactica two part miniseries on Sci-Fi that led to the critically acclaimed television series. 

The reimagined Battlestar Galactica tackled many of the issues the United Nations deals with such as human rights; terrorism; children and armed conflict; and reconciliation and dialogue among civilizations and faiths.  

On March 17, 2009  Ronald Moore, David Eick, Mary McDonnell, and Edward James Olmos participated in a panel discussion co-hosted by the UN Public Information Department, the Sci- Fi Channel (I hate the SyFy it changed to) moderated by Whoopi Goldberg to help raise the profile of humanitarian concerns.and issues of importance to the United Nations

Here's that panel discussion that tackled many of the issues that the Battlestar Galactica series touched on during its four year run.  The UN panel rocked.   

So say we all.
