Battlestar Galactica Spin-Off Announced

It seems as if every sci-fi franchise is getting its own spin-off show these days. Stargate has one and there's a rumor a third series could be in the works, Doctor Who is getting one in Torchwood later this year with a potential show featuring K-9 for the kids rumored to be coming.

Now comes the word that Battlestar Galactica will get a spin-off. The series is set to take place 50 years before the start of the current series according to a report at TV Guide On-Line.

As a fan of Galactica, I'm intrigued by this but also wary. I worry they'll dilute the brilliance that is BSG with Ron Moore and company having to split focus between two shows. Of course Joss "The Man" Whedon did it--and he even had three shows on the air at one time in the fall of '02. So it can be done....
