Earlier this week, Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos took over the G4 studios for an important announcement about the sci-fi show's monumental influence on the United Nations.
We wrote about his live television interview earlier, where he talked about the United Nations changing its language on the use of word "race' as a cultural determinant. Not only was Battlestar Galactica the first television show invited to speak at the UN, but Olmos's passionate stance on uniting the world together has led the international organization to issue the following from their Durban Review Conference on human rights.
"6. Reaffirms that all peoples and individuals constitute one human family, rich in diversity, and that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights; and strongly rejects any doctrine of racial superiority along with theories which attempt to determine the existence of so-called distinct human races."
Though the UN charter has not officially been amended, Edward James Olmos's fight for social equality on behalf of Battlestar Galactica has clearly stepped beyond the television screen into global politics.
Before Olmos stepped on the Attack of the Show stage, he sat down with our Interactive team for an in-depth conversation about Battlestar Galactica, his follow-up in The Plan, the United Nations, the series' conclusion and Twitter. Get ready, because when the formidable Admiral Adama speaks, you always stop and listen.
