Ever since Syfy's acclaimed hit 'Battlestar Galactica' went off the air last year, fans of the series have been looking for something to fill the void left by its absence. Now Syfy may finally have found a new show that fits the bill: 'Battlestar Galactica.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Syfy is eying a return to the world of 'Battlestar Galactica' for a new spinoff. While details are still vague, the potential series is described as "a return to the franchise's space-opera roots."

"We're looking for other ways to spin off 'Battlestar' beyond 'Caprica,'" Syfy development honcho Mark Stern told the Hollywood Reporter. "That world is so rich. We're sitting down with (executive producer) Ron Moore and his team. It would not necessarily be a traditional series."

The premise is that the central character can move anything with his mind, but only for a distance of three inches. This character recruits a team of similarly underachieving mutants. It sounds a bit like a knock-off of The Inferior Five.

The article also mentions the network's plan to expand it's 'Battlestar Galactica' empire with a strong possibility for a second season of 'Caprica' as well as another spin-off series of the franchise. Another spin-off series? Honestly, where else can the show go? They covered the war with the robots and they're now covering the origin of the robots. Are they going back to the original planet of the Five ... a prequel of the prequel?

Okay, there are probably a ton of other concepts and topics to cover in the 'BSG' universe, but SyFy should be wary. An overabundance of spin-offs is what killed the 'Star Trek' franchise until the recent movie reboot.
