The TV industry seems to bring everything back from the dead, so when the cast of “Battlestar Galactica” reunited at ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, International Business Times just had to ask about the possibility of a revival. The Syfy show has been off the air since 2009, and the cast is still close. However, not everyone was thrilled about a potential revival when they walked the red carpet at the Paramount Theater Saturday night.

James Callis, who played Dr. Gaius Baltar, pointed out that they’d have to really change the events of the finale. “Where the show was left, in a kind of finite position on a planet, I think that would have to be addressed,” he told IBT. “‘Battlestar Galactica’ works in space on a spaceship. It would seem to me, if there was going to be a new one and we do it again, then something would have to be very wrong with the planet almost immediately, and we’d have to get back on the spaceship and replay all the mistakes that we made for five years previously.”

Anders actor Michael Trucco doesn’t think a revival could follow the events after the finale. “It would have to be in some prequel fashion, wouldn’t it?” he asked. “It would be the only prequel in history of entertainment where the cast got older.”

Katee Sackhoff suggested that they could use CGI to keep the “BSG” cast looking youthful. She would be cautious about playing Starbuck again, though. “Hands down, I don’t know if I have the stamina for what we did before,” Sackoff admitted. “Yeah, 100%. I’d be fearful to mess with something that was so great, but yeah.”

Meanwhile, the cylons will only sign on if showrunner Ronald D. Moore wants to revive the show. Tricia Helfer and Grace Park both said their returns would be dependent on him. “It all stems from Ron,” Helfer, who played Six, told IBT. “If Ron had a story for it and a passion to do it. You know, he’s the brainchild of our show and it would definitely stem from him. I think then we’d probably all be up for it.”

Bamboo actress Park agreed. “It would be legit if Ron was going to back it. Then I feel like that means that there’d be some element of the story that wasn’t yet spoken,” she explained. “Of course, I’d want to be part of that, and I’d want everyone to be apart of it then.”

Moore, who currently has his hands full running Starz’s “Outlander,” revealed to IBT that he doesn’t see a revival happening any time soon. “Well, we pretty much told the story that we wanted to tell,” he said. “When I decided to end the series when we did, it was because I felt we had reached the end of the story, and I also wanted to get off stage with the audience wanting more, and that’s exactly where we left them. So I don’t really think that there’s much to be had to go back and do it again.”

He also doesn’t seem interested in another reboot, but Moore assumes someone will eventually come along and launch a new version of “Battlestar Galactica.” “I can’t imagine recasting the show, personally, but I’m sure someday somebody will reboot it,” he noted. “I mean, ours is a reboot of the original, so I’m not here to get up on my high horse. That’s not possible. But I’m very happy and very satisfied with what we did, so I don’t feel the need to really go back and revisit it.”
