Sovereign Press has acquired the rights to produce a Battlestar Galactica Role-Playing Game from Universal. The Sovereign Press BSG RPG will be based on the new Battlestar Galactica series currently appearing on the SCI FI Channel. In order to create immediate interest among the Battlestar Galactica fan base, Sovereign Press plans to release a 32-page BSG RPG Quickstart Rules (MSRP $4.99) volume as early as October.
The Core Rulebook for the Battlestar Galactica Role-Playing Game, which will be focused on events that happened in Season One of the new series, is scheduled for release in January and is tentatively priced at $39.99 for 224-page full color hardcover. The BSG RPG will use the same gaming system as Sovereign's popular Serenity RPG, which just went back to press for the fourth time (see 'Serenity RPG Back to Press').
Currently Sovereign Press has approval to publish six volumes in conjunction with its BSG RPG and hopes to be able to extend its license and produce an extensive line of BSG RPG products that mirror the evolution of the current TV series.
