It’s been a while since Battlestar Galactica went off the air, but actresses, Tricia Helfer (@trutriciahelfer) and Katee Sackoff (@kateesackoff) has continued to work together over the years through Acting Outlaws (@ActingOutlaws), which combines their love for motorcycles and raising money and awareness for various charities and foundations. This year, the beautiful duo will be selling calenders featuring never-before-seen photos of the pair taken by celebrity photographer/filmmaker, Dennys Ilic. These sexy photographs makes for an amazing calender and portion of the profits goes straight to charity. This is a win-win situation for both your soul and your pants.

The calender is available exclusively through Redbubble. Hit the jump and get a small glimpse of the calender. NSFW

Yep. That is pretty dope bro. Nothing is better than a geeky cake at a wedding. So, when Karren’s Specialty Cakes and Confections was hired to create a massive wedding cake for a pair of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ fans, they didn’t disappoint. Unfortunately, this work of delicious art was eaten and destroyed (most likely by some weird Aunt or Uncle…). I can’t blame them. I would eat the shit outta this cake.

We all love Syfy’s reboot of ‘Battlestar Galactica’. A cult hit and fans will love that series for years and years. BSG spin-off, ‘Caprica’, not so much. It was boring and lacked the bite that BSG had. Well, Syfy takes another whack at bringing BSG back with ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome’ which takes place during the 10th year of the Cylon Wars and follows a young William “Husher” Adama. It’s filmed mostly on green screen so there is a bit of displacement between the backgrounds and the actors/props, but whatever. The trailer looks bad ass and sends shivers down my spine (even though Syfy completely fucking ripped off the theme from the trailer of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’. Blood and Chrome is set to be a two prequel and it will be interesting to see if Syfy will make Blood and Chrome into a series.

What do you think? Will the bad taste left from Caprica keep you at bay from Blood and Chrome or are you hungry for more? Hit the jump and check out the trailer

We’ve got violent decompression radiating from the port flight pod…

Okay… Somebody must have been listening into my prayer because I might have found one of the sexiest videos ever online. The video features the ever so lovely, Katee Sackhoff (@kateesackhoff) who played Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in ‘Battlestar Galactica’. I know what you might be thinking and unfortunately, I have to let you down. The video doesn’t feature Katee naked or anything like that. The thing that makes this video so gosh darn sexy is the fact that she is featured in the video talking about a toy (not a sex toy, you pervs…).

Couple weeks ago, we featured an awesome ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Mark II Viper Artisan Replica by Quantum Mechanix. This amazing limited edition replica (priced at $1499.95 each) is probably the greatest BSG Viper collectible to ever be made and we also mentioned before that the replica will come in two different editions. One for Commander Adama and one for Starbuck in which both will be signed and number by the actor. Well, Edward James Olmos, who played Adama in Battlestar Galactica recruited the help of Katee Sackhoff to spread the word about this amazing collectible by creating a video. In this video, Katee recounts her days on the set of Battlestar Galactica and some of the fun (and hellish) experiences she went through filming inside the Mark II Viper prop. Along with that, she guides us on a tour of the Mark II Viper replica by showing us all the bells and whistles that the collectible has to offer. The funniest part of the video has to be at the end where it’s a behind-the-scenes look at Olmos showing and directing Katee before they shot the video. I don’t know why, but I was completely impressed with how excited Olmos was about the replica and how intrigued Katee looked while Olmos was pointing out all the features. If I was a rich man, I would have been sold on this collectible as soon as I saw Katee speak, but unfortunately, the Empire pays like shit.

Hit the jump and check out the video featuring Katee Sackhoff and Edward James Olmos!

Holy smokes this is so wicked! Quantum Mechanix busted onto the collectible scene with their rad replicas and character goods. One of the things I love about QMx (thats what the cool kids call Quantum Mechanix) is their awesome variety of licensed merchandise they produce. They make stuff for awesome movies and television series such as ‘Star Trek’, ‘Doctor Who’, and ‘Firefly’. QMx next big release is the bad ass Mark II Viper from ‘Battlestar Galactica’!

Action Stations, Nuggets! The Vipers Are Launching!
Now you can join the fight against the Cylons with this frakkin’ awesome Viper Mark II Artisan Replica from QMx. Our 1:18 scale filming-quality miniature is being offered in three editions: Adama Edition, Starbuck Edition and Fleet Edition. The limit has been set for 500 replicas per edition. The QMx Viper Mark II Artisan Replica boasts a cockpit chock full of hand-cut details, including gauges, data screens, throttle, ejection seat, and seat belts with fabric belts and metalized buckles. But the pièce de résistance of the QMx Viper is the active, working DRADIS – a 9/16” OLED (organic light-emitting diode) video display of the remote sensing system in action, displaying the actual DRADIS video used in Battlestar Galactica. The canopy can be opened for an optimal view of the cockpit and this first-ever digital model effect. In addition, the ship’s three rear engines feature a pulsating lighting effect that is randomized using a white-noise generator. It takes our artisans about 50 hours to hand assemble the 140 parts that go into this spirited fighter, hand layering 18 different colors of paint, and adding special decals and hand-painted stencils.

There will be three different editions. The “Adama Edition” will be signed by Edward James Olmos, the “Starbuck Edition” will be signed by Katee Sackoff, and the “Fleet Edition” will allow you to customize your very own Viper with the call sign of your favorite Viper pilot like Commander Lee “Apollo” Adama. You can even make your own name and callsign for an extra fee. The only problem is that this monster collectible is $1499.95! Hot damn! Start saving your lunch money kids!

I find this pretty cool and confusing as hell. Chicago resident art director/graphic designer, Billy Ray decided to create a pretty complex, but simplified visual map of all the major events that took place in the ‘Battlestar Galactica’ universe. Titled, “Battlestar Galactica: Space & Time”, this infographic includes evens such as the settlement of the humans on the “Twelve Colonies” and when the colonies were infiltrated by the “skinjobs”.

I created this visual time line of the Battlestar Galactica universe after the season 4, episode 17 “No Exit” data dump resulted in near aneurism for my friends and me. I later updated it to include key points from the “Caprica” pilot movie.

This is pretty interesting and I think I need to go back to the beginning and watch BSG again to see if the infographic is correct or not. I had a hard time getting into ‘Caprica’, so I’m just going to take Billy’s word for it. Click the above image to enlarge for a better look!

This is a t-shirt I can really get behind. For fans of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and sports, BustedTees has a pretty awesome tee of Caprica based pyramid team, “The Caprica City Buccaneers”. I can really imagine Samuel Anders sporting one of these t-shirts before the game. I really enjoy t-shirts like these a lot because it really takes a diehard BSG fan to know what the t-shirt is about… or at least someone that paid attention to all the details in the series anyways.

You can pick up on at BustedTees’ online store for $16.99! Hit the jump to take a closer look at the design.
