(credit for the idea for this goes to Boxy who started a thread call the 1000th podcast. Naturally I took that idea and drove it off a whole new cliff…)
CHUCK: Hello, and welcome to Galactica Watercooler. My name is Chuck 471. And I’m here with Audra 253…
CHUCK: And Sean 768.
CHUCK: …and you should know that we do not discuss spoilers on Galactica Watercooler, but we do feel free to discuss anything from previous episodes up to and including the currently brain-inserted episode which is ….
(Plays recording of Boxy’ voice) “The most recent episode is ‘Hera & Nick Go to the Prom’ “
CHUCK: That was awesome. Thank you Boxy for calling in the name of the “episode that shall not be spoken. Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to call in, you can network to our holosphere link to us at Alpha 40005-3333V1-G586, and set resolution to 11999.5. ‘Gram us, and we may play your hologram back in an upcoming podcast.
AUDRA: And I just want to say, we’ve been getting some really great holo-calls lately. Keep them coming!! This current nine year hiatus between season 14.5 and 15 of the New New Reimagined Battlestar 2380 is starting to wear on everyone I think.
SEAN: Well, can you believe it? We actually made it to the 100,000th podcast. Time has just flown by.
AUDRA: I know! And it’s incredible to think that we first started Galactica Watercooler it was inspired by a reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica where beings called cylons download to new bodies and…
CHUCK: and now we are all machines…Ooops. Sorry to interrupt. I was just gonna say, who would have imagined back then that we would become exactly like the “skin jobs” as they used to call them on that original show. I’m telling ya, these past 1,923 years, and 236 downloads, have just flown by though.
SEAN: Have you gone back and watched that Ron Moore version recently?
CHUCK: No, have you? It didn’t think it was available in Holo-Def.
SEAN: Well, I bought an old-fashion 21st century DVD player from an antique store and watched the show. And it’s not too bad. It’s in 2D TV, with no brain-jack of course which is really weird. And Starbuck was a human woman in the Moore version of show, which is also pretty weird. And it’s funny seeing Jamie Bamber back then before he became so anti-Galactica.
AUDRA: I know, he led all those protests against the New New Reimagined Battlestar 2380 version of the show that’s on now. And now, look at him, playing Hot Dog’s nephew in the new series.
CHUCK: Hey, you guys want to take a call?
AUDRA: Yeah, cool.
(Playing holo-recording) Hello, Chuck, Sean and Audra, this is Solai. I just want to say Congratulations on getting to your 100,000th podcast. You’re the best. I love listening to the podcast when I lightbeam to work each morning, and it really makes my Monday. Just want to remind you I’ll be holo-calling in from the Brain-Gaming Con on Europa Colony next Thursday and that will be combined with a Meet-Up of the local Jupiter moons GWC crew. Thanks guys.
SEAN: Awesome. Solai always comes through for us.
AUDRA: And he still has that great silky smooth voice.
CHUCK: I know. Remember back in the early days of GWC when Solai was a human?
SEAN: Oh, you mean before he became a disembodied voice energy being? Yeah, it’s cool how his voice is still the same.
CHUCK: That reminds me, we have to talk about the latest Mass Effect brain-insert game……
