Dynamite Entertainment Prepares to Launch SCI FI�s New �Star�

RUNNEMEDE, N.J. -- May 5, 2005 -- Dynamic Forces Inc., the parent company of Dynamite Entertainment, announced today its agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Product Group to release comics based on the modern version of Battlestar Galactica. The comic series will launch Fall 2005.

"Battlestar Galactica is the new #1 show on TV, and we can't wait to release the comics," explained Dynamite Entertainment spokesperson J. Allen. "What we're seeing is really unheard of in modern storytelling and television in that the classic Battlestar remains beloved while the new Battlestar remains faithful enough to the source, while allowing for bold, new directions, and in the eyes of many, exceeding all expectations thanks to the vision of Ron Moore."

"We are confident in Dynamite Entertainment's ability to develop and distribute high-quality comics that will build off of the strength and staying power of this great property," said Cynthia Modders, senior vice president of sales and retail development at Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.

About Battlestar Galactica
Produced by Universal Television and Glen A. Larson, the hit TV series, Battlestar Galactica, was first broadcast on ABC in September 1978. Starring Lorne Green, Richard Hatch, and Dirk Benedict, this epic space saga went on to become a veritable sci-fi classic. With just thirty-six episodes created, Battlestar Galactica has enjoyed syndication over the last two decades, most recently on the SCI FI Channel.

With its compelling storyline, memorable characters and exciting visual effects, millions of fans tuned in every week to join Commander Adama, Apollo, Starbuck and the crew of the Galactica on their journey through the galaxy. Hunted by the diabolical Cylons, a mechanical race set out to destroy all humans, the crew of the Galactica and its ragtag fleet of survivors' only hope was to find legendary planet Earth-believed to be the home of the missing Thirteenth Colony of Man.

Inspired by the classic series, this extraordinary story was re-imagined by SCI FI Channel and NBC Universal Television Studio in December of 2003 in the form of a 4-hour miniseries event. Capturing a new generation of fans, Battlestar Galactica became the most-watched cable miniseries of the year and led SCI FI to continue the saga through a one-hour weekly series. Redefining the space opera with its gritty realism, the new Galactica has distinguished itself by the intensity and present day relevance of its stories and the command performances of its ensemble cast. Now one of television's most critically-lauded shows, Battlestar Galactica recently concluded its freshman season as SCI FI's highest-rated original series to date. Production is currently underway on its second original season which will premiere on SCI FI in July.
