In March 2009, during the finale of a Science-fiction television series, a middle-aged man with a thick beard appeared in front of the television and began reading excerpts from a magazine. National Geographic. For die-hard fans of the cult sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica, this was another final nail in the coffin of their dreams. They were upset and started a wave on the internet.
Galactica space navigator
This man, Ronald D. Moore was the producer and writer who produced The Space Marine. That final scene where the two characters from the story were walking through the streets of Manhattan was not much different from the end of the "Game of Thrones" series in terms of the level of division and division among the fans.
However, Moore without hitting Let a fatality enter his career (a disaster that "Game of Thrones" brought to his creators), he had an extraordinary comeback. First, he went to "Outlander", which was a romantic time travel series. Now, in collaboration with Apple TV, he has created the series "For All Humanity", a series that tells the story of trying to travel to space with such a twist and charm that audiences of contemporary authentic series have never seen.All he could do was sympathize with the creators of Game of Thrones.
Amidst his reflections on people's reactions before the advent of virtual social networks, he realized that the final uproar The "space navigator" (it turns out that one of the key characters of the series is an angel who came from the former land of humans before falling to earth), has not been as good as he hoped.
Actually, The situation was completely reversed. Fans gnashed their teeth, pulled their hair and chanted Moore's name in anger. What was worse was that he himself had an honorable presence in the final scene of the series! This insult was too much. Suppose David Benioff and D. B. Weiss (creators of "Game of Thrones") also appeared with Tyrion at the end of the series. That's how controversial Moore's reading of National Geographic was.
Moore later said: "When fans are really not happy, and they're pissed off, it's really annoying. It is easy to feel it. But to be honest, even now that I think about that move, I love it. I think it was a great job. And I don't care if it pissed off the fans."
That story ended the story of "Space Navigator Galactica" and caused, just like "Game of Thrones", after the end of the series another discussion in It should not be done and it is easily forgotten. However, as mentioned above, this negative reaction did not cause much disruption in Moore's path. He is currently one of the most unique creators in the world of television series.
Moore is in a way the opposite of Kevin Feige, the main architect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Feige is very focused on building a specific brand, from 2008's "Iron Man" to the recently released "Ms. Marvel" series, traces of his thinking can be seen. Unlike Feige, Moore is always looking for something new. He gained his first experience in this field by being in the team of writers of the series "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and worked in different parts of this series for many years. Then he produced the underappreciated series "Carnival" for HBO. A series that was basically a "Doctor Who", with a big budget, during the American economic crisis.
Then with "Space Navigator Galactica" he abandoned All the stereotypes of Science-fiction series and started from the genre. This series was broadcast from 2004 to 2009. The claim must be accepted that one of the reasons for people's interest in the Moore series was the new wave that the second "Star Wars" trilogy had started at that time. Glenn E. Larsen, the producer of "Space Navigator" was also aware of this popularity. For this reason, he added the word "star" to the name of his series (Battlestar Galactica).

The new series of Ronald D. Moore
"For All Mankind" is the last work that Moore made. This sci-fi television series, made for Apple TV, focuses on an interesting hypothesis: what if the Soviet Union had set foot on the moon before the United States and Neil Armstrong? In this case, what direction would the 20th century take?
Through this fascinating hypothesis, Moore presents a fascinating and fresh perspective of the past 50 years. In his fictional version of the 1960s, 70s and 80s, someone to John Lennon didn't shoot, Maradona's goal was missed, and "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan" is the first serious movie in the series. This last change is huge (especially if you're a Star Trek fan). But Moore makes this alternate history work in an artful mix of seriousness and silliness.
Ronald D. Moore and "Star Wars"
For Moore, 57, there are still plenty of opportunities. . While he will be working on future seasons of For All Mankind, he has signed a deal with Disney to remake one of the company's classics, The Swiss Family Robinson. Perhaps this is a starting point for the collaboration between Moore and Disney to create a work in the world of the company's golden child, "Star Wars." Moore himself said: "I'm old enough to say summer 1977 I went to see "Star Wars" in the cinema and saw it for the first time. And then we had to wait for years for the next sequel to be released. Now the situation is very funny. At that time, I had to read books and fantasize in addition to movies that came after many years. At that time, it was clear what a rich world we were dealing with and how many different stories could be told in it in different ways."
Disney has its own team for the "Star Wars" series. But now that the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series has not performed as expected (except for the very good performance of Ewan McGregor), the producers of this series are looking for someone who is familiar with the ins and outs of George Lucas' world and is afraid of Implementation does not have its own distinct worldview. And who could be against the idea that Moore could put the Force back where it belongs and make Star Wars the bold and innovative franchise it once was?
