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
