You’d think astronauts would learn not to trust holodecks.

Word on the street is that Ronald D. Moore, creator of the new Battlestar Galactica, is working on a new show called Virtuality. The concept of the film is that a crew of 12 astronauts on a ten year journey to a distant solar system are forced to deal with a bug in their virtual reality entertainment for the journey. Sounds very similar to the Star Trek TNG issues with the holodeck. Hopefully Moore’s experience on Star Trek will enable him to give the show some credibility (ala BSG) and not doom it to fail like so many other sci-fi shows.
