Talk:List of Deleted Scenes (RDM)

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Namespace

Does this really even need to be namespaced? This page has links to all the deleted scenes listed. (I wonder if more have been posted). While TOS has deleted scenes, they are all on the DVDs. Unless somebody wanted to summarize the contents of all the TOS deleted scenes (a rather cruel and unusual sentence), I doubt there would be a TOS equivalent to this page. We have enough trouble getting episode summaries of the stuff that DIDN'T hit the cutting room floor. --Steelviper 14:01, 13 February 2006 (EST)

Well, eventually someone may enjoy detailing the TOS deleted scenes, since now you've confirmed that the TOS DVDs do have some. Better to keep its namespace as-is. Besides, yes, it's a pain to edit, but you knew the job was dangerous when you took it. :) --Spencerian 14:36, 13 February 2006 (EST)
Roger. Wilco. Yeah, there are deleted scenes on the DVD's, but they're all lumped together into one track. So if you're going to break them out into "scenes" for description, you'd have to do it manually. I wish I could pronounce them entirely worthless and write them off, but there have been occasions where they've saved me. I would have had NO idea who Sorrell was without a deleted scene, and no worthwhile screenshot of Paye. So... I guess it's worthwhile to hold a place for it. That's pretty low on my priority list, though, and I think we'll be able to declare vicotry on the Original Series Article Development project long before that comes anywhere close to being done. --Steelviper 11:42, 14 February 2006 (EST)

Link cleanup

Looks like a lot of the links to the Season 2 deleted scenes featured on Scifi.com have died, therefore we should definitely run through this page and check if all of them are dead, or if some of them are. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 00:40, 23 April 2007 (CDT)

As far as I can tell all the links are dead. OTW 13:41, 5 May 2007 (CDT)
I just noticed that as well. The videos are still there, but on SciFi Pulse. They are even directly linkable. I'll update the site. --Serenity 13:51, 31 May 2007 (CDT)

Link formatting

I think having the whole sentence as link looks very ugly. How could we do this another way? Maybe number the links like "1"? Or Have it behind the sentence: "[description] (Link)"? --Serenity 16:25, 31 May 2007 (CDT)

Numbered links are easy: [http://www.a.com] [http://www.b.com] gives [1] [2]. Unfortunately, this keeps numbering all the way through the page and won't reset for the next episode. [http://www.example.com [47]] gives [47], but needs manual numbering. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 06:21, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
The second way is an option and wouldn't be hard to do with copy and paste. --Serenity 06:35, 1 June 2007 (CDT)

SciFi Pulse purge

I just tried watching a scene and noticed that that SciFi Pulse has deleted all but a handful of deleted scenes! This sucks major balls. I hope this is just some temporary technical frak-up. --Serenity 19:37, 10 September 2007 (CDT)

This may be their way of forcing people to buy the DVDs, since deleted scenes are a staple of them. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 21:39, 10 September 2007 (CDT)
Not on the UK DVDs tho, we have to make do with just being told by people that have seen them what they are of :( --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 02:54, 11 September 2007 (CDT)
Aye. The Miniseries has no deleted scenes. The S1 set has most of them. The S2 set has scenes for the first half, but none for the second (and there are some good ones). The S3 set has none. But aside from that, this was a convenient way to watch a small scene without hunting for it on the DVDs. --Serenity 04:57, 11 September 2007 (CDT)

Kara's "confession" in Razor

In the deleted scenes for Razor, the Kendra/Kara scene is a lead-in to the Kara/Lee flashback where they're screening the Olympic Carrier footage. When Kara tells Kendra, "You didn't shoot," Kara is actually referring to Kendra's role in the Scylla incident. Up until that point, Kendra hadn't admitted that she fired her gun. Kendra was always the person who shot DaSilva; that was never supposed to be in question. --Mmm...toasty 14:11, 7 December 2007 (CST)

Thanks for the clarification! It's corrected now. :) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 14:27, 7 December 2007 (CST)
Good catch man! OTW 14:29, 7 December 2007 (CST)

Season 3 Deleted Scenes

I've actually begun work on an article covering the season 3 deleted scenes. It is located here List of Deleted Scenes (RDM)/Season 3 with different formatting, screenshots, and a look that's ripped from the Episodes sub-portals. Thoughts? -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 01:46, 23 March 2008 (CDT)

Not sure. I kinda like the simplicity and ease of use of the current version. Your layout allows screenshots for each scene, but I don't think they're really needed, unless it's to show something exceptional. Quotes are a nice feature. But we could also have that with the current version. Since the article is getting rather long anyways, we could leave the Miniseries on the main page and then have sub-pages for all other seasons. Then each season can include a "Noteworthy Dialogue" section. -- Serenity 11:09, 23 March 2008 (CDT)
I'm fine with that. And, anyway, we do need to split the page like we did with the Re-imagined Series' timeline. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 11:20, 23 March 2008 (CDT)
I did the overdue split for now. Some screenshots can still be added here and there. Some episodes even have space for two. -- Serenity 11:57, 23 March 2008 (CDT)
