Did You Know?


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 »


Upon leaving the CIC, Shaw went to the left. A few moments later, Cain exited CIC heading to the right. After the first explosion, Shaw is dazed and Cain tries to focus her. There's no reason Cain would have doubled back bypassing the CIC to be where Shaw was in this kind of emergency. See more »

Alternate Versions

Extended Edition DVD adds and extends scenes:
  • Flashback of Kendra at a transfer station on Caprica, revealing to Frank Bruno that her mother Marla was a Quorum delegate
  • Baltar and Six converse when everyone's looking at the original Cylon raider on the Pegasus' deck elevator
  • Extension of Adama's flashback to the end of the First Cylon War: he'd shot down two raiders during an engagement with a base star, during which the battlestar Columbia is destroyed. He chases two more raiders into a planet's atmosphere, where he shoots down one and rams the other, forcing him to eject. He and one Cylon centurion shoot at each other while they freefall, but Adama pops his parachute and lets the centurion keep going. After landing, he smashes the centurion to nonfunction and takes its gun, which he carries into the hybrid lab. Once there, he has a vision of Cylons vivisecting people in order to create the hybrid
  • Flashback to Helena's childhood on Tauron during the end of the First Cylon War: she and her kid sister Lucy are forced to leave their father during a Cylon attack on their town. Lucy falls and can't get up, while Helena runs into a shipping container, where she finds the jackknife and waves it at a centurion that finds her. The Cylons then leave, but Helena finds only Lucy's doll because they'd abducted her

Gonna make it a short review. I see too many peoplehere bashing it to hell. Remind you, those are the people who , at the end, didnt like the show at all! So they are biased on that alone. Some of the old school hters on this remake will never get enough of the hate they want to spread over this show. Period. I dont like the new season of dr who either. Dont hear me complaining all around. What i want to say is: If you dig the show, you will proberbly be in for this extra episode. that's just how i see it. The new Battlestar galactica isnt without its flaws, but as you can see it for what it is , you weil get: amazing acting/ best music ever in a show. and a great story. One of the best drama series out there.
