I can recall seeing an ad for the California Universal Studios ‘The Battle of Galactica Live’ one Sunday morning in our local newspaper in my youth. I had spent the night at my Grandparents house and being a big fan of the Battlestar Galactica TV series I was incredibly excited about the possibility of being part of the action involving Colonial Marines and the awesome Cylon warriors…someday…if we ever got a chance to go to California. That is when while we were eating breakfast that my Grandfather happened to mention they had already been on the tour. My jabbering about the TV series and the advertisement ceased as I stared slack-jawed with grape nuts dropping out of my open mouth. My Grandparents and my cousins had apparently already gone the Summer before, it turned out that I had been invited on the trip but my Father didn’t want me to go.
Sadly I never was able to be part of that action but thanks to By Your Command.Net we not only have an ad for the tour but video as well!
