New BSG: Razor Details Surface

Cain_l

As Battlestar Galactica lazily moses its way along to a conclusion, I find myself flashing back more and more to the constant tension of the first and second seasons. That’s probably why I’m looking forward so much to the BSG flashback movie Razor, which will detail the events on the Battlestar Pegasus during the Cylon Attack on the Colonies.

Now we’ve got some new details on the plot of Razor thanks to a great write-up over at Entertainment Weekly.

Now we’ve got some new details on the plot of Razor thanks to a great write-up over at Entertainment Weekly.

According to EW, the film will be split between the two commanders of the Battlestar Pegasus: Admiral Cain during the initial Cylon attack and Lee Adama during the Pegasus’ exile from New Caprica. I secretly hope that we are talking about fat, latex-suit Adama here… is there any other one worth watching? But I digress.

The plot of Razor will focus on a new character, Kendra Shaw, who will be Adama’s second command on the Pegasus and who will juxtapose life between command regimes through flashbacks. They will also explain how the Number Six model Gina went from a communications tactician to the beaten, tortured and rape prisoner of war we saw in the second season.

The two episodes of BSG involving the Battlestar Pegasus were the high points of the show for me, so I can’t wait for this one. Of course, there’s still no word on when it’ll air, and Moore is hinting darkly that a lot has to do with the writer and actor strike. I hope I can wait.
