'Battlestar' set to enjoy final voyage

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. TV series "Battlestar Galactica" is set to begin its fourth and final season next week, ending a run known most for its bleak outlook.

While filming in Canada, "Galactica" star Edward James Olmos said while the Sci Fi channel series' subject matter may tend to lean toward the dark side of life, it still represented a top TV production, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

"The show is a dark mirror," said Olmos. "So, so dark. I was talking to one of the executives on the show recently and this person told me that they would never do something like this again, this kind of material. I have been doing this a long time, working in television, film, the theater, and this is the best material I've ever worked on in my life."

"Galatica" follows the sparse remnants of the human race as they attempt to find a new home while been pursued by the robots that destroyed their civilization.

Olmos said the series' focus on political and social issues were groundbreaking but perhaps were simply too revolutionary for today's TV audience.

The Times said the final season of "Galactica" begins airing next Friday.
