Quick Recap: BSG, Caprica Panel – Comic-Con Report

Edward James Olmos greets fans of Battlestar Galactica at Comic-Con International.For a guy who seemed reluctant to climb aboard a Battlestar Galactica series when it first launched, Edward James Olmos is committed body and soul now.

At a Friday early afternoon press conference at Comic-Con International, Olmos hosted a BSG: Caprica – The Plan event to show preview footage of the new Caprica show and to discuss The Plan movie he directed to continue Syfy’s top original franchise. The DVD release for that film hits stores on Oct. 27.

More from our partner blog TV Squad after the jump.Olmos alluded to his one-time hesitance to become full-time commander of the Galactica when he told fans, “I’m on board Battlestar Galactica for the rest of my life.” That would have brought a huge cheer from fans at a panel, but reporters and such tend to be more subdued.

Olmos’ enthusiasm and partial contrition is a classy way of saying, “I never foresaw how successful BSG would be, and I know a good thing when I see it.” In fact, the sci-fi epic completely resurrected his career.

Caprica premieres January 22, 2009 on Syfy.
