Halloween Weekend


I have feeler emails out to a few apple vendors. Once the business week starts I should have some more updates and we can speed this thing along. November 15 is the goal date for the mass mailing. That was the date that the season finale was supposed to air. In the meantime here are some links all about Caprica and the campaigns that are going on! All the Lil' Cylons, Caprica Army and the Soldiers of the One are mobilizing!
Alessandra Torresani talks Halloween and saving Caprica at MySpace; the petitions are going
strong; The Caprica Times is keeping us all informed and motivated; Twitter and Facebook have their own groups and events and the Lil Cylons have a video campaign going on while keeping us all together as One!
Thanks to Hugh Hart over at Wired we have our first bit of press.
There are some great ideas and schemes brewing. I'll check in with you Soldiers soon.
Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween weekend.

Update


I have been researching apple wholesale and delivery companies in New York. I'm hoping to get a delivery set up for November 15th, the date the season finale of Caprica was supposed to air. I agree with the commenter that suggested we pool our money and send a huge delivery. I envision a truck showing up sending our message to NBC. You might be questioning the point of sending apples. To me it is just a statement. The fact that it was a major part of Syfy's marketing is a plus. We saw it and retained it. I also want to encourage all of you to write letters to NBC/Universal and Comcast. Express your feelings. State facts. What they want to see is numbers which transfers into dollars. Caprica was cancelled before it hit it's stride. I truly believe that at the rate it is going now and with some tweaking of the schedule and marketing, the ratings would go way up. Look at the amount of accolades it has received from the media. This could be a great and long running show with the potential to make a lot of money for the network.
Phase 1 is bringing attention to the amount of people who are against the cancellation by this apple stunt. Phase 2 will be bringing more viewers by getting Caprica nominated and hopefully winning that People's Choice award. Phase 3 will be to show our support financially. We need those DVDs to fly off the shelves.

Petition


Hey Soldiers,
Don't forget to sign the petition over at RedEye Rogue and join the Facebook page "Caprica for Season 2!" as well as the official Caprica page.
Alpha Waves Radio is going to be talking about the cancellation today over at Blog Talk Radio.

Tactical


I spent most of the day researching the best ways to start our campaign. Thanks to a Soldier on the comments section of the previous post we have a website that sends apple gift boxes for a relatively good price- Honeycrisp. While searching the V-World ( internet) I also found Terhune Orchards in New Jersey that ships a 10 pound box for $25. If you live near an Aldi's there are bags of apples for as low as $1.49. I bought 2 today!
My plan is to send them individually with a note that includes a reason why Caprica should stay on the air and the symbol of the STO. I am also mulling over the thought of starting a Paypal to collect donations to send some of those gift boxes of apples. I will start putting together the packages tomorrow. Thought? Suggestions?

Zoe's Apple


For those of you who watched/heard of the show Jericho that was on CBS, you might know about how their fans saved it from cancellation. They rallied and sent tons of peanuts to the offices of the CBS executives. Check out the full story here.I propose to completely rip off their idea and send all the bigwigs at Syfy and NBC/Universal a load of APPLES.
The Apple is iconic to us Caprica fans. It is on basically every piece of advertising Syfy made. By
a bag and mail them out to Steve Burke, Mark Stern and whomever else you can reach! Include a note with the STO symbol on it. I'm going to start preparing my packages tomorrow. Updates and pictures to come.

Your First Mission



Cylon Army! Soldiers of the One!
This is a call to arms. Caprica is up to be nominated for a People's Choice award. Vote here: http://www.peopleschoice.com/pca/nominations/vote.jsp?pollId=110024 and on Twitter. Vote every day! Nothing would show how valued Caprica is like having it nominated and possibly win an award after it's cancellation!

Caprica Cancelled



The sad news that Syfy had cancelled Caprica hit the internet today. Plagued by schedule changes, long hiatuses and not enough viewers, this amazing show has suffered the plight of many a sci-fi show. Many fans of the long running Battlestar Galactica dismissed it because of the major differences between the series. I submit that it was always meant to be completely different and that is exactly what was so great and unique about it. I truly believe that if Syfy renewed it and dedicated a steady schedule and advertising for it, Caprica would prosper. It has been critically acclaimed so many times!There are so many fantastic things about this show- the cast, the stories, the sets, the music, etc. All those amazing people lost their jobs today. We viewers have lost a smart and intriguing drama that rivals anything else on television.
I have never started a campaign to save a show before. I have never felt so strongly attached to a story or the characters in it before. Caprica has so many great and pertinent stories to still tell. Who wants to help save it?
