The Unproduced Scripts Portal
There are many stories that were written for the screen, but could not be told through that medium for various reasons. Whether the scripts were unshootable, spec scripts, early versions of aired episodes, or pushed back for a later season that never came, the Battlestar Wiki and its redoubtable contributors have found various scripts that were never produced.
Of course, their canonicy is debatable, but these are looks at stories that may have been to shows that have long since ended. Take a look.
In the script that was being produced when Galactica 1980 was officially cancelled, the story "The Day They Kidnapped Cleopatra" tells of Xaviar's continuance of his self-appointed mission of improving Earth's technology in the distant past. In this outing, he pretends to be a god to Cleopatra, however in order to dispel those who doubt Xaviar's claim, she poisons his drink, forcing Xaviar to frantically seek out Jamie Hamilton, Troy and Dillon in 1980 to get medical assistance. Unfortunately, he brings along Cleopatra to the future as well, thus jeopardizing Earth's timeline in the process.
