I don't understand this statement: "There has been some speculation that Regis Blackgaard will be involved in Album 53, though those claims have not been verified." I thought Blackgaard was gone, forever!! Proverbs 31:30Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. ~ Aria ~ (talk)

you're right, he's gone forever :( I'm removed the reference Reddo 19:29, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Blackgaard's ultimate goals?

What was Blackgaard's real endgame anyway? He wants Applesauce, then he wants the secret government laptop, then the Rukuta virus. Sometimes he wants money, sometimes he wants power, sometimes revenge, sometimes immortality. Is he unable to make up his mind or was there ever any real master plan going on? If he's interested in money, surely there are easier ways to get it than some of the stuff he tries. --Nerd42 21:51, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

he just wanted power, it didn't matter how or what type of power he just wanted it Reddo 05:17, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
For what it's worth, an interviewer asked Earl Boen what went into playing "a guy who wants to take over the world", and he didn't argue. For the record, his answer was interesting: Half in character, he said, "Well, he deserves it! Because he's the most intelligent man in the universe! People just don't know it yet..."
On a related note, the article currently talks as if Dr. Blackgaard might have been a serious follower of Red Scorpion. While I don't disagree with Blackgaard being a terrorist, or even wanting to change the world to suit his own wants, I don't remember anything suggesting that he actually believed in the Red Scorpion cause. (Whatever it was, exactly.) He got what he wanted from them, then in a private moment, he told their leader exactly what he thought of the whole thing before letting him die. And then he moved on to the next step of his plans and never mentioned it again. At most, if he thought that Red Scorpion had actually had a chance of ushering in a "new world", he might've stuck with them longer, but the man was in it for himself. - Caswin (talk) 18:32, 9 January 2013 (MST)

Is Regis Blackgaard part of the European Security Agency?

Just wondering because it's unclear 23:45, 13 September 2014 (MDT)

  • At least some of the characters think he is. Jason says in "The Final Conflict" that "I thought he was with European Security, but now I know he isn't. My guess is that he's a... megalomaniac. He just wants power and lots of money." The website says he's former ESA. I'm sitting on my own thoughts on the subject. - Caswin (talk) 10:35, 15 April 2015 (MDT)
  • Also, according to a quote I found, when Mustafa asks him whether or not he's working with European Security, he answers, "Oh, yes. I am. Or... was. Now they think I’m dead." - Caswin (talk) 12:42, 16 July 2015 (MDT)

My Blagaard Saga

I have constructed a list of episodes that I qualify to be in the Blagaard Saga. It is much more expansive than the one that is on the CD. Jason13579 (talk)

Section removed.

Why My List is so Expansive

The Blackgaard Saga involves multiple sagas, and I had to include all of them. Jason13579 (talk)

It's interesting that you think that Blackgaard was involved with Novacom. Currently, there is no evidence to support this and much evidence against it. Unless new proof surfaces, we will keep The Blackgaard Chronicles, the Novacom saga, and Accidental Dilemma separate. Scientific Guy (talk / AIOC Episode Timeline) 19:37, 19 November 2017 (MST)
OK. I am working on a user subpage about this, and am wondering if I should move this section to said subpage? P.S. I only put the blaggard saga and novacom saga together because of the episode "Novacom Rules the Earth." I do think that Blackgaard is in charge of andromeda. (He probably was the Chairman, but using a voice modulator.) Jason13579 (talk) 11:53, 8 December 2017 (MST)
And the only reason that "Accidental Dilemma" is in this is that the Whisperer wants Applesauce. Jason13579 (talk) 12:02, 8 December 2017 (MST)
I moved the list for you. You may copy the rest of the discussion if you wish! Scientific Guy (talk / AIOC Episode Timeline) 18:19, 8 December 2017 (MST)

Blackgaard's PhD

The article as it is written is flawed: actually it was Glossman who said, in the city council meeting, that Blackgaard had a PhD in child psychology and that this was sufficient qualifications for running a place like Blackgaard's Castle. Additionally, though, the phrasing here betrays a bias against the good doctor. I'm not sure why the claim would be considered questionable: for one thing, nobody in the show ever questioned or doubted it, and it seems it would have been simple enough for them to look up the details of his education. Furthermore it isn't unreasonable to suppose he could have had one; he is certainly intelligent enough, and it makes sense given his agenda and methods that he would have studied psychology. --J.C.G.

Good catch. How's that revision? Scientific Guy (talk / AIOC Episode Timeline) 17:20, 26 August 2019 (MDT)
