executive producer Ronald D. Moore wants fans of the show to support the writers' strike, and he's offering some very enticing incentives for those who do. Over at Pencils2MediaMoguls.com
, you can spend one dollar to send a box of pencils to one of the six media moguls who run the corporate conglomerates that the writers are striking against. If you mention that the show you're supporting is Battlestar Galactica
, you'll automatically be entered into a raffle where you could win some very interesting prizes.
When you go to Pencils2Media Moguls
, you have the option of entering the name of which show you're supporting, as well as an actor's name. Type in "Battlestar Galactica Aaron Douglas
," and you'll be entered into a contest where you can win a chance to go to a hockey game with Chief Tyrol himself up in Vancouver. Enter the names of Mary McDonnell
, Tricia Helfer
, Michael Hogan
, or Michael Trucco, and you can win a personal phone call from that actor.
However, most fans will agree that the best reward comes courtesy of Jamie Bamber
, who has offered to sign and donate three towels to the cause that he has worn himself. The first two will go to the fans who purchase the most pencils in Jamie's name, and the third will be raffled off at random. If that's not enough incentive to buy a truckload of pencils, I don't know what is.
There's no word on when the contest will end, but Ron Moore teases that there may be exciting offers from other cast members in the near future.
