Thanks to Maureen Ryan, the Chicago Tribune TV columnist pointed out this fantasy crossover:

Check out Dwight Schrute’s “Schrute-Space” at “The Office’s” Web site for his musings on what would happen if the “Battlestar Galactica” crew crash-landed on the “Lost” island. An excerpt: "Adama would want to imprison the 'Lost' cast in the old cave with the creek in it, but President Roslin would want to reason with them and have both casts mate in order to create more surviving humans."

Dwight's blog can be found in my list of links to the left, as well as Maureen's column.

Of course, it also contains a Zonk, as Dwight is a fictional TV character in 'The Office'. And despite the wildly different types of TV shows represented by 'The Office' and 'Lost', they would exist in the same TV universe. (And that's not taking into account the hilarious sketch with Conan O'Brien during the opening of the Emmys, which took place in the sketch-world.)

But as for 'Battlestar Galactica', that is set in an alternate TV dimension (with 'Firefly' and the upcoming 'Caprica'). The original 'Battlestar Galactica' and 'Galactica 1980' are the shows that are housed in Earth Prime-Time.

Am I sounding like a broken record to the party faithful when it comes to 'BG' and its place in Toobworld?

Sorry about that, Chief.
