Screen Junkies is reporting that Commander Adama wants to head back to the Battlestar Galactica universe. Edward James Olmos, who played the commander on SyFy’s Battlestar Galactica remake, would like to do a graphic novel detailing what happened to Adama after the end of the series.
“I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don’t know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will,” he said during a press tour for Comcast on Demand. Their Hispanic Heritage Month programming includes the film Selena, in which Olmos played the title character’s father.
Olmos said he is currently looking for an artist to help him chronicle Adama’s life on Earth 200,000 years ago. “All I can tell you is: aren’t you guys curious as to what happened to them?”
