Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.
Prior to airing on TV, Razor was screened in theaters in selected cities to pre-registered fans. However, a full theatrical release was not possible, for legal reasons: although Universal Studios owns the television rights to the Galactica franchise, movie rights are owned by Glen A. Larson, who created the original 1970's movie/show. Despite a Consulting Producer credit (and salary), Larson had no input for the new series whatsoever. Any theatrical release, however, would require Larson's approval. See more »
In both versions, but especially in the unedited one, Starbuck's wing tattoo is visible. According to chronology she should not have it until New Caprica - about the time of her marriage. See more »
It's ten months before Battlestar Pegasus encounters Galactica. Pegasus is docked at a station when they are attacked when the war begins. Admiral Helena Cain (Michelle Forbes) takes command and leads Pegasus into the fight. Kendra Shaw (Stephany Jacobsen) is a newly arrived officer. It also shows the other parts of season 2 of the TV series after the two Battlestars meet. Lee Adama has taken command of Pegasus with Shaw as his new XO. Admiral Adama reveals a mission from the first Cylon war which adds to the Cylon origin story.
This is a side trip in the Battlestar Galactica TV series taking place in different time sections. The prequel section relies on Forbes and Jacobsen to take the lead. They take a different tact from Galactica. Tricia Helfer keeps that section interesting. I would have been happier with a simple prequel and leave the main story with the TV show. The difference between Cain and William Adama's command style is compelling on its own. It doesn't need the TV cast and its present day story. It would be a nice one hour movie.
