Mustex said:O.k., I both want to here suggestions for a spin-off (if one should happen), and opinions of my ideas. I have two:
1. They meet up with the Pegasus. They decide that they double their chances of surviving by splitting the fleet between the two Battlestars, and severing all ties.
The problem with this is that the two series (the second probably called "Battlestar Pegasus") would be so similar.
2. During a Cylon attack the fleet is forced to jump, but one ship is damaged and can't. It is forced to put down on a planet that is harsh, but inhabitable. The area that they land in is, for some reason, impossible for the Cylon's to attack from the air. So instead they have to send ground forces, and only in small numbers (can't think of a reason for this either, but it would have to be addressed). The series could be constructed around the people trying to make the place habitable.
Still, that leaves some big problems to be solved story-wise to make it make sense. I'd suggest calling it "Battlestar Galactica: Stronghold."
I don't think Galactica can handle a spin-off as yet. Give it another 3 yrs or so, and then they can do a Pegasus series.
