Announcing: 13 Weeks of BSG

December 21, 2008

Since this is our last chance to show how dedicated the 13th Colony is to Battlestar Galactica, we’ve decided to go all out to give our favourite show a frakkin’ good send-off!

Since we call ourselves the 13th Colony, we just had to do….13 Weeks of BSG!


We’re having viewing parties each and every week from the first weekend in January 2009 and continuing through the end of March. We’ll start with two 4.0 Refresher sessions, then settle in for ten Friday nights to watch the final ten episodes, and finish it off with a “cry over your coffee” post-mortem session after the dust has cleared.

Our location for all 13 events is the LaFontana Caffe in Burnaby, a cool coffee place with plenty of seats and one very big screen. The owner is a 13th Colonist, and he’s happy to have us over to watch with him. Since there’s no cover charge or event fee, we’re asking that everyone who shows up orders off the menu, to make sure it is worthwhile for them to have us there.

Of course, those of us in Vancouver are the luckiest of all, since we get to see the BSG broadcast on Space Channel at 7pm PST. We gather one hour early to fuel up, strap in and enjoy the ride!

If you would like to join us, please visit our Meetup site here for more details and to RSVP. (Click on the picture above for a view of our frakkin’ awesome poster, designed by Ryan Madden.)


  1. Woo-hoo! Sounds like a terrifically good time. I’m sad that I won’t be able to join for each and every one. But, who knows? Maybe the gods of disposable income and vacation time will bless me, and I’ll be able to join you for the Finale? (Cross your fingers, but don’t hold your breath.)

    Oh, you lucky Vancouverites. How I envy you. I hope you all have a great time!

  2. I shall be there for all 13, Gods Willing, and am really looking forward to it.
