Star Trek Discovery vs Orville1. May 2018
In 1978, the Battlestar Galactica series was described as the television’s response to the first Star Wars film and was the cause of years of litigation between the 20th CENTURY FOX and UNIVERSAL.
Originally planned as a series of TV films, it was quickly converted into the format of a weekly series, which was ultimately the reason for its demise. Battlestar Galactica has not only made a name for itself as the most expensive SF TV series of its time, but has rightly earned its place in the gallery of the best “classic” series despite its weaknesses. Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, Lorne Greene and others are unforgotten for many fans.
Robert Vogel gives a background report on the classic series and refers to conversations with many actors of the series that he has met over the decades.
Lecturer: Robert VogelDuration: 55 min - The Lecture will be held in: german
writes as a freelance journalist for German and international trade magazines and has been active in the scene since 1973. He gives lectures on all areas of fantasy at 20 or more fantasy events a year. He likes to visit the shooting of fantastic films and series and occasionally (if you let him) acts as an extra in front of the camera.
Since 2003 Robert
has also frequently participated in events organised by the European Space Agency ESA. Thus he experienced the landing of the HUYGENS probe on the Jupiter moon Titan as one of the few registered journalists live in the space center ESOC and followed the ROSETTA comet mission from the very beginning. He has already met several NASA and ESA astronauts and is diligently building a bridge between science fiction and real space travel.
Despite his great enthusiasm for fantasy and astronomy/space travel Robert Vogel
also has time for other interests: he loves the music of the 60s, likes to go dancing and likes the company of nice people. His great weakness is pasta dishes.
