The Cast of “CAPRICA” are introduced and take their seats on the panel, as the fans assembled applaud and cheer. Lead by the moderator, Geoff Boucher.

James Master gives his thoughts on the purpose of the show, which takes place fifty (50) years prior to the events in “BATTLESTAR GALACTICA”. “(Caprica is) In the middle of a violent revolution, seeing the decadence, a little drama about his woman of choice. I choose Tina Fey… any culture, any religion who thinks they know everything.”

Alessandra, Terresani, portraying multiple Zoe(s), admits addiction to twitter, and using flipcams.

Ronald D. Moore compared the show to the iconic series “Dallas” with the simple statement: “It’s Dallas!” and “Was really useful to remind the audience that this is a period piece, prior to “Galactica”.

“Did I miss the party?” … “We’re doing tequila shots.” Is the playful banter, as David Eick reveals that ”Blade Runner heritage” is is influence on “Caprica”!

Magda Apanowicz says “I feel so luck at my age.” And that as Lacy Rand, “I have a voice, I have a voice!” David Eick adding that there is an “Evolution of her character.”

James said one of his favorite things about “Caprica” is that is “Stays on the planet”

David Eick expressed that its “Titanic knowing the final outcome about the colonies. To get into character… create situations that are as riveting.”

James Marster’s participation on the 200th episode of “Smallville”, “T.W. still looks hot” and “Needs to be the freshest piece of fruit.”

“All the females save the show every week… More fun to write for women…” is referring to Battlestar: Galactica “Make them three dimensional.” Ronald D. Moore said.

“I want the men to call them ‘Sir’” David refers to Ronald about females in power.

“Caprica is us today.” Moore says. “Corporate politics (are) much more recognizable.”

“Surprised how much love…” Marsters says about Barnabas.

Sasha also remarks about Barnabas “The guy comes as a surprise. Much more layered, not the monster you think he is… worst guy in the cast… quite loveable.”

Alessandra says that Zoe is “Being more than the rich girl.”

Ronald: “Begin (until we hit) the Battlestar:Galactica timeline. Not sure when the final chapter will be.”

Sasha Roiz says “(my) Family (is) from Russia, helped form character.”

James comparing being “Spike” on “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and Barnabas. “Kicked out of college is where Spike came from. Barnabas comes from my dad.”

David Eick responds to the question, with a question: “What lighter parts on the show?”

Moore tells us that it will be “Tricky to figure the rhythm of it…balance humor and drama.”

Moore has a theory explaining marriages on Caprica, “Polygamy-group marriage… family broad within twelve (12) colonies.”

James refers to the book “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” by Robert Heinlein.

David confesses “My Hercules roots get me all hot and bothered.” This begins the reference to Amazons and the colonies.

How humans changed into Cylons haven’t yet been addressed. What is is to be human, Is part of what the show wanted to show. Dr. Graystone is the doctor Frankenstein.

What is it to be human…Is part of what the show wanted to show.

“Both are manipulative” James says about the characters Barnabas and Brainiac.

Time is called. The cast says goodbye.
