Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II

Muffit is visibly displeased with the new marriage of Apollo or Serina.
  • From the original script: After Galactica enters the void and Adama says, "Order all ships to maintain visual contact on Galactica", Tigh says "Commander, some of the skippers on those old barges aren't really Captains, they're trainess, barely competent. If we could skirt the heart of this magnetic field..." Adama: "Tigh... We may not have a providential guiding light to see us through like our ancestors, but we do have the best navigators in the universe aboard this battlestar. We will find our way." Tigh: (sighs in frustration) "Yes, sir." Omega: "The freighter Yarborough is now in distress and rolling. Unable to keep visual on us." Tigh: "Commander." Adama: "Continue on course."
  • From the original script: In the life station, Starbuck and Apollo nervously watch Casseopia lower the Cryo-tube temperature on Boomer. The doctor is standing over Boomer administering medication. Cassiopea: "Doctor Salik has isolated the virus. He's given Boomer an anti-virus he believes will counteract the infection." Starbuck: "Believes?" Cassiopea: "He's the best. I'm sure he's right." Apollo: "He'd better be. We're betting their lives on him." Cassiopea goes back to reading the monitors. The doctor crosses to the console and looks down on her. Starbuck: "Boomer?" And then the rest of the scene continues.
  • From the original script: After Baltar tells Lucifer that the humans "will come willingly to my arms", Lucifer tells him that three ships have drifted away from the Colonial fleet and suggests they destroy them, but Baltar refuses.
  • From the original script: There is more to the wedding - Adama says to Apollo, "Nervous?" Apollo says, "No. Not a bit." Adama answers, "Neither was I when I was married to your mother." Serina and Boxey enter. Adama first asks if Boxey (the protector of Serina) will relinquish his responsibilities to Apollo. Boxey looks at Apollo and says nothing. Then he smiles and says "Yes!" and there is a sigh of relief among everyone. Then Adama wraps the medallion around the wrists of Apollo and Serina, and the rest of the scene begins
  • An alternate scene where the star is discovered: Well into the void, Omega reports that they have found a mega star, which Tigh finds hard to believe. Omega reports that "behind" the mega star is a galaxy, and that they are near the end of the void. Apollo tells them to conduct a "narrowband scan" to search for a single planet in "elliptical orbit, 1 to 3 parsecs from the mega star". He believes it to be where the planet Kobol, the "mother world of all humans, where life began".
  • Apollo gives Serina tips on launching, by keeping her head braced against the headrest when she launches and her hands off the controls until the "outer doors flash by". He also tells her that she doesn't need to rush things, as she has the whole universe to "level out" in. They then passionately kiss.
  • A scene where Muffit leaves "daggit shit" all over the carpet. The "matter" consists of washers and screws.
  • A scene where the female Viper pilots discuss flight maneuvers. Deitra comments that Brie should practice a few more approaches, while Tigh drags away Starbuck and Apollo from the discussion. Serina notices that they are leaving, and follows, telling her fellow pilots that "the fellas are beginning to resent all this shop talk". Dietra then gives her belief that "this drop and shoot strategy that they are insisting we use" is "a whole lot of felgercarb".
  • Serina is preparing to launch her Viper, as well as the associated shot of her "launching".
  • A version of the marriage ceremony where Tigh notes that "the star, it's pulsing again" (whereas in the final scene, it is here when the star is first discovered by Galactica's crew.
  • During the sealing, Serina tells Apollo, "I know, I wish Starbuck was here too" after Vipers fly by.
  • From the original script: On Kobol, Adama says that, after the planet died, the people "turned on the technology that could have saved them. After they destroyed the ships that took them away, it took them hundreds of yahrens to revive even the most primitive crafts."
  • A scene where Apollo and Serina kiss on Kobol.
  • A scene where Apollo breaks up his father's attempt at choking Baltar, but Apollo is unable to get his laser out of the holster, to which Richard Hatch (Apollo) says "shit".
  • Apollo orders that the warriors break up the camp. It is here where Athena reveals to Starbuck that Apollo and Serina were married. When Starbuck says, "Married? Without me?" Athena then drops a blatant attempt to get Starbuck to talk about their own relationship by saying, "Well, if you really want to be at a marriage ceremony..." Starbuck's reply is to comment that he should start breaking down the camp, leaving Athena.
  • From the original script: When Galactica launches fighters to aid in the battle of Kobol, one of the pilots loses consciousness in the middle of the launch and his ship explodes in the launch tube. Two other pilots are unable to launch due to falling unconscious.
  • From the original script: When the outnumbered viper squadron is trapped, Dietra says, "We're trapped!" Starbuck: "Let's go out fighting. (beat) Athena!" Athena: "On your wing, Starbuck." Starbuck: (believing he is about to die) "I love you! Sort of."
  • An extended scene where Baltar is left for dead by Adama, Apollo and Serina.
    Baltar: This cannot be. It isn't just. I'm destined to be a king amongst kings. Lucifer, I'll tear you apart, limb from limb, circuit by circuit. So help me! You have not heard the last of Baltar!
  • Starbuck is pacing outside of Life Sciences when Cassiopeia exits. Starbuck asks "Everything is going to be all right, isn't it?" Cassiopeia then breaks down and runs into Starbuck's arms. Adama then approaches with Boxey and Muffit. Boxey tells Starbuck that "Hi Starbuck. Heard you did good," to which Starbuck replies, "Well, you know how it is kid, when you're great, your great." Starbuck also offers to help keep an eye on Muffit while Boxey sees his mother. With Adama, Boxey enters the room.
  • After Serina passes away, Apollo and Boxey are outside the room talking about how Serina's love for them will never fade away, and that Boxey will make a fine warrior someday.
