The fifth Galacticon convention took place over the weekend (in conjunction with Comicpalooza, scene of another amazing get-together), and since nothing brings people together like food, some of the cast convened beforehand for a partial re-creation of the famous final-season "Battlestar Galactica" poster "Last Supper." Cast member Michael Trucco ("Anders") tweeted it:
Named in the picture: Edward J. Olmos ("Commander Adama"), Nicki Clyne ("Cally"), Bodie Olmos ("Hot Dog"), Luciana Carro ("Kat" and "Priyah Magnus" from the "BSG" spinoff "Caprica") and, looking much like his namesake, composer Bear McCreary. Also appearing in the photo: Rekha Sharma ("Tory), Michael Hogan ("Saul Tigh"), and Kate Vernon ("Ellen Tigh").
Not to be outdone, Tahmoh Penikett ("Helo") offered his own authentically Texan version of a reunion meal:
Besides Trucco, Carro, Sharma, and the younger Olmos, Kandyse McClure ("Dualla" and currently "Dr. Clementine Chasseur" on the Netflix original series "Hemlock Grove") also makes an appearance. You now have every excuse you need to cater your next "Battlestar Galactica" marathon with pulled pork and cornbread. You're welcome.
Though not at the con, Number Six, Tricia Helfer, is spearheading a mini-"Galactica" reunion on her ABC pilot "Killer Women," which was recently picked up to be a series. She will star alongside fellow Cylon Trucco, who plays the older brother to Helfer's Texas Ranger (the law enforcers, not the ballplayers).
The show is based on the Argentine series "Mujeres Asesinas," for which the executive producer is Sofia Vergara. Not that you needed another reason to see it, but there you go — two of the most amazing women in television joining forces. Don't say we never did anything nice for you.
