We were sorry today to hear of the passing of TV series producing/directing veteran Winrich Kolbe. With a 35 plus years track record working on some of the best and most popular and enduring US TV shows ever made, including 24, QIINCY, WAR OF THE WORLDS, KNIGHT RIDER, HUNTER, SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND, MILLENNIUM and THE TWILIGHT ZONE, German born Kolbe was most well known to sci-fi fans for his immense directorial work across all the modern incarnations of the STAR TREK series. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA fans, however, will recall his original involvement in the classic series on numerous episodes in different work positions, from being an early producer on the original pilot, to assistant director and then director over the course of the season's duration.
Our condolences go out to Mister Kolbe's family and friends...

Serina gets some bad, very bad, news from one of the Galactica doctors in a cut scene from Saga of a Star World that would eventually make its way onto DVD.

Modern photoshop publicity posters/images can never replace the halcyon days of classic movie illustrations, but Colonial Vipers and Cylon Raiders are always cool to see, as in this nice piece of DVD promotional art for the Classic Series in Spain.

One of those creepy Ovions, in league with the Cylons, poses for the cameras in this image from Saga of a Star World. It's a shame that more aliens didn't appear in the series, presumably due to lack of behind the scenes time once GALACTICA became a weekly event, and due to limited budgets.
