Battlestar Galactica season 3 **spoilers**


Recommended Posts

* The season picks up 134 days after the Cylons first arrived on New Caprica.

* The New Capricans are not freed from Cylon tyranny during the two-hour season premiere. Nor during the episode after that.

* At least one major character will never escape the Cylon’s occupation of New Caprica.

* About 2,000 humans managed to escape the Cylons along with Helo, Dualla and the Adama boys. At least one of the Adamas strongly advocates leaving the New Capricans behind and starting the human race over with the 2,000 escapees.

* There is no mention in the first five episodes of the Cylons allowing the humans to live only if they sacrifice some of their number to breeding experiments.

* In 3.1, both Tigh and Apollo have undergone shocking changes in appearance since we last saw them.

* Amanda Plummer turns up in 3.3, perfectly cast as a kamala-gulping soothsayer who has a chat with D'Anna.

* Starbuck’s blonde hair remains really long (at least until the end of 3.5).

* Sharon Agathon will not spend the entire season as a prisoner of the fleet.

* We see a representative of each of the seven models we’ve MET - a D’Anna (Lucy Lawless), a Cavil (Dean Stockwell), a Leoben (Callum Keith Rennie), a Doral (Matthew Bennett), a Simon (Rick Worthy), a Six (Tricia Helfer) and a Sharon (Grace Park) - getting to vote on extremely important decisions regarding the fate of Baltar and of the New Caprica humans generally. But the five models we’ve not met are apparently not given a vote!

The titles and airdates of the next 11 hours of “Battlestar Galactica”:

Despite declining ratings for Battlestar Galactica on SciFi Channel, nearly universal critical acclaim along with robust DVD sales have led Universal Home Video to consider greenlighting a Battlestar Galactica direct-to-video telefilm, which will presumably air on The SciFi Channel, after debuting on home video, sources tell Geek. If it goes forward, the two hour telefilm will shoot in March during the series hiatus and prior to the commencement of production on the series fourth season in June. While there is no story for the telefilm at present, plans are afoot to come up with a screenplay that doesn’t step on existing continuity for the series, but utilizes most of its existing sets. There is also speculation the telefilm will somehow tie into the mythology for the Galactica spin-off series, Caprica, which has not been officially greenlit by SciFi Channel.

Lots of spoilers here. Something happens to Starbuck, someone's name dissapears from the opening credits(dies?), and there will be a movie that takes place between season 3 and 4.

In an exclusive interview, executive producers David Eick and Ron Moore say that a “profound” event involving Starbuck does occur a pivotal Season 3 episode called “Maelstrom” that is scheduled to air March 4. In fact, Moore says it “will be one of the most surprising things that’s happened in the history of the show so far.”

What happens to Thrace “will jump out and grab you,” Moore says.

The producers confirmed what the actress who plays Starbuck said in a recent interview -- that as of that March 4 episode, she had completed her work on the show’s third season, even though three more episodes air after “Maelstrom.”

So the actress finished her work on the season early and something major and surprising happens in the last episode that Sackhoff filmed. But Eick and Moore don’t want to use the word “death” when describing what happens to Starbuck in “Maelstrom.”

“I think people will have to watch that episode and judge for themselves what happens,” Moore says. “I can say that Galactica will suffer a shocking loss in that episode and Kara is a key member of the crew.”
