Comic Con seemed like a one off without ANY knowledge of this. No chatter = dead product.
It's kind of sad that if it is stillborn, we aren't going to ever see it. Even on Youtube, I haven't seen authentic, leaked footage yet. I'm just a little perturbed that we (as BSG fans) aren't being given the opportunity to decide for ourselves
if it sucks or not. I mean, it's completed; it's in the can. What further harm could be done by screening it (even as a SyFy/Space channel one-night movie)? Personally, I think that replacing the sets with CGI versions is probably one of the bigger hang-ups the production is having. CGI is not quite ready to fully replace real, tangible, physical sets yet (especially for a show as gritty and 'real' as BSG). BSG has had CGI set extensions many times (the hanger bay, the engine room, etc), but for a set that cast members are going to interact
with on a regular basis? I look at the new "V" and the Star Wars prequels as examples of how CGI sets are just NOT there yet...
And from what the "Blood and Chrome" actress Lili Borden said at the Comic Con panel, pretty much the WHOLE show is being done on green screen. She said most times they didn't even have an idea of what they were interacting with until they saw video dailies later on.
