The Battlestar Galactica series just got a little bit more awesome with this video edit that features scenes from the series mixed with music from the classic 1986 film Top Gun. The result is absolutely awesome and worth five minutes of your time, especially if you’re a fan of either of these properties, which we are. Check out our sexiest babes of Battlestar Galactica. The video is called “Top Gun Galactica,” and it was edited together by Nick Acosta, who explains what he wanted to accomplish with it:
“For my latest project, I recut one of my all time favorite movies to one of my all time favorite TV series. For part one of this film I wanted to show the life of a fighter pilot aboard a carrier at war. Much like a fireman, fighter pilots can be called at any moment and have to spring into action. Starbuck and Maverick are roughly the same character. They are both extraordinarily skilled fighter pilots, but both wild flying against the shadows of their past. Their parents were once in the military and every time Maverick and Starbuck get into the cockpit they are flying against ghosts. They are also super cocky and don’t mind throwing a punch or jumping in and out of bed with someone. I loved using the great Top Gun score from Harold Faltermeyer and of course Kenny Loggins classic song “Danger Zone.” Part two of this film was my entire inspiration for this project. Watching Top Gun recently I wondered what would this feel like with Bear McCreary’s great score behind it. This is actually shot for shot the last two mins of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. Young LT. Adama finally gets his Viper and is sent off on another adventure. Watching this I had an emotional reaction because these final shots will (probably) be the last moments ever of the reimagined version of Galactica. I loved showcasing all the beautiful Visual FX that were created for the show by ZOIC under CG supervisors Gary Hutzel and Doug Drexler. I feel both Top Gun and Galactica match up in tone quiet nicely, even though one takes place in space a long time ago far from Earth. Who knows, maybe this has all happened before and maybe it will all happen again…”
Highway to the Danger Zone!
