"Every one of us in the 'Galactica' family has always nurtured a not-so-secret passion to try and make a movie out of the show, because there are so many things that on a week-in, week-out one-hour drama, you have to compromise on," Jamie Bamber, who plays Lee Adama on the series, recently told SciFi Wire.
The new telefilm covers the plights of the Battlestar Pegasus under both Lee Adama and the ruthless Adm. Helena Cain (Michelle Forbes). More is revealed about the relationship between Cain and Number Six in the telefilm, and there will no longer be any doubt that the two were once lovers.
"It tries to introduce a new character [Shaw], which I thought was a great way to ... see it all from a pair of eyes that we haven't actually met before, that we'll have to meet all the main characters all over again," Bamber said. "I thought that was a very worthy endeavor and a good way to bring a new audience to ‘Battlestar’ before a fourth season being aired."
Select movie theaters in the U.S. will hold special screenings of the film on Nov. 12.
"Razor" airs Nov. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on SciFi Channel, and the fourth and final season of the show premieres in April.
