This week in SciFi channel the new Battlestar Galactica series is featuring a new episode ‘Pegasus’. The description clearly shows this to be a remake of Living Legend. I intentionally did not watch the teaser for the upcoming episode so all my information is based on the description of the upcoming episode. I see a couple of differences right off the bat.
Cain has gotten a promotion to Admiral. And Admiral Cain is a woman — a surprisingly young woman at that — played by Michelle Forbes (Ensign Ro from Star Trek: The Next Generation). This promises to be a really good episode. Adama respects the president dispite her gender and lack of experience now after they have been through some trials. Now enters a young, probably gung-ho, superior officer with a very loyal crew. I’m sure her ship was not about to be decommissioned. She surely has ships and armament to get into the fight. What I will miss is the classic cylon reporting on the “second” battlestar to a very confused Baltar played by John Colicos. I do hope there is some sort of a nod to classic fans — there usually is.
This is the Summer Season finale and it will run 2 minutes longer than normal — watch your DVR. I’m sure we will get stung with a cliffhanger.
It was a cliffhanger. Long wait til Jan. They made Cain into a psychopath. I had to send my son out of the room at one point during the interrogation. 9/24/06 -DB
