Video Clip: First BSG Razor Flashback

While it’s a little too soon to start counting down the days until Sci Fi airs the much-anticipated Battlestar Galactica “Razor” episode, you can start getting your BSG fix by watching the flash-back clips that Sci Fi is airing each week during Flash Gordon. The network will have each clip posted on their website immediately after the FG broadcast. This first clip aired last Friday.

The clips are not actually part of the two-hour special episode of Battlestar Galactica, which is set to air on November 24th. This is the deal, according to Sci Fi’s website:

“Written by Michael Taylor and directed by Wayne Rose and Felix Alcala, these intense, roughly two-minute segments tell the story of young William "Husker" Adama's rookie Viper mission during the first Cylon war. In addition to fighting for his very survival against relentless Cylon centurions, Adama makes a terrifying discovery that will come back 40 years later to threaten him, the crew of the Pegasus and the survival of the human race.”

This first clip takes place during what appears to be the tail end of the first Cylon war. William Adama – aka “Billy Adama” aka “Husker” is a rookie soldier about to embark upon his first mission, which involves defending a “chunk of ice in the ass-end of nowhere.” He’s got himself a hottie girlfriend who’s a superior officer.

On a personal note: Billy Adama -Yum!! I also loved learning that the “nothin’ but the rain” line goes all the way back to Adama’s youth.
