I thought once they cut into the long form movie it was going to be treated as a backdoor pilot?
There is sooooo much more that they can do with this... There's a wealth of backstory material just sitting on shelves no doubt. I think as CGI technology advances and becomes less expensive - The potential show's budget would drop to a manageable enough figure to get a green light. I'm fairly sure the run of BSG on SyFy was co-funded by BBC in some form or fashion.
