And Now, The End Is Near...

July 28, 2008 5:14 PM

The end is near for “Battlestar Galactica,” which debuts its final batch of episodes in 2009, and judging from the panel at Comic-Con, fans are both excited and sad about that.

The audience went crazy over a preview trailer and even gave the cast and crew a standing ovation at the end of the panel. But there was also considerable sadness among attendees at the thought that it will soon be over.

Production on the final episode wrapped three weeks ago.

“The ending is an ending,” actor Jamie Bamber assured the audience. “It does everything and everyone justice.”

But before the series can wrap things up, it’s going to get bad.

“Things aren’t pretty on 'Battlestar' for a while,” executive producer Ronald D. Moore teased.

“Filming the end of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ was like ‘Apocalypse Now,’” actor James Callis added.
