« Last post by Anne on November 17, 2014, 03:35:52 AM »
Battlestar Galactica creator Glen A. Larson died November 14th, of esophageal cancer.  He was 77.

In addition to creating the 1978 series and its spinoff Galactica 1980, Larson was listed as a consulting producer on the Ron Moore/David Eick rebooted 2003 miniseries, the SyFy series (2004-09), the TV movies "Razor" and "Blood and Chrome," the direct-to-DVD movie "The Plan," and the short-lived prequel series Caprica.  Larson also composed the theme music for the original BSG and Galactica 1980.

Glen Larson also created the 1980s sci-fi series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Knight Rider, The Six Million Dollar Man, and the short-lived series Manimal and Automan.  His non-genre credits include creating the TV series Magnum P.I., Quincy M.E., and The Fall Guy.

Born in Long Beach, CA, Larson originally was a member of The Four Preps, a pop singing group in the 1950s.  Their best known hits included "Twenty Six Miles (Santa Catalina)," and "Dreamy Eyes."

Here's a thought for TIG for enlisted 3 months for Crewman to PO/3 and 6 months for PO/2 & PO/1, 9 months CPO, and 12 months for the higher PO ranks?

On June 20th, Fleet Admiral Jenner reported on the passing of James Kanaley, a long time CDF member and its former Chief of Communications.  James died suddenly on June 18th from a brain aneurysm.

James will be remembered as a dedicated officer of the CDF, and a good friend.

The fleet admiral's original statement can be accessed here:

Deliverence will dim her lights in memory of a good, faithful warrior of the colonial fleet.

Godspeed...

Are there any time in grade requirements for enlisted?

We haven't specifically articulated it but, you can assume that the same TIG requirements would apply for enlisted ranks. Simply substitute the rank for those listed. I will get a list of enlisted's up after the holiday weekend.

If a member is currently a LT JG and has enough time in grade to be promoted to Captain, the member can only be promoted to full LT in the next promotion cycle and to Captain in the next promotion cycle?

No. There is no "time in grade accumulation". You can't pre-stack it. If a LT j.g. is promoted to Lt., their t.i.g. for Lt, begins with the promotion to Lt. In order to be promoted to Cpt, they have to have the time AS a Lt,... not just in the CDF as a whole.
