Sure, it's just a quick little mention here and there in every "Ronald D. Moore Commercial" all over the Internet, but the stunning absurdity of the statement would certainly lead one to believe that the "Ronald D. Moore Publicity Machine" is always trying to find new ways to give Ronald D. Moore credit for properties he really didn't create.
This production...."GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) was no more a "Re-Creation" of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica Series" than Ronald D. Moore's "17th Precinct" was a "Re-Creation" of "Harry Potter."
Let's really get down to brass tacks here. There is no such thing as being the "Re-Creator" of something. (Have the copyright laws in this country really gone to shit to this extent?) There is no such thing as "Re-Creating." Other people's creations are there creations. Period. It is a vague, sloppily manufactured credit that does not actually exist in language. It is juvenile word play designed as being nothing more than giving credit where credit is not due.
There is a such thing as trying to take credit for other people's creations. In this case, the made-up word ("Re-Creator") is being used to try and benefit Ronald D. Moore. This sort of thing is popping up with alarming regularity with Ronald D. Moore...
1. "Battlestar Galactica"
2. John Carpenter's "The Thing" movie
3. "Helix" - Actually created by Cameron Porsandeh
All of this nonsense could be avoided if Ronald D. Moore would just get in the mindset of thinking up original ideas all his own. He can't do this because he doesn't have any imagination.Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
