User:Gougef/Season 3 Teaser

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

Temporary holder for the Teaser Info until we figure out what to do with it.

I am posting a very detailed and NPOV (as possible) write-up for discussion and analysis, but doubt we would want to post all of this officially, which is the main reason I created this page. I have tried to refrain from doing any interpretation, deduction, or induction. Just the facts ma'am. I will save it that for the analysis.

Please correct any errors or omissions.

(Is "Title Screen" correct? Also, should I have called them "scenes.")

Season3 BaltarBegs.jpg


Season3 shooting2.jpg



A group of three individuals are standing on a ramp, one who is wearing a ski mask. One of the other unmasked individual pulls out a weapon and shoots the masked one.

  • Title Screen: "WHO YOU ARE"
  • William Adama saying, "I'm going back."

Additional Info

After stepping through the teaser frame by frame, the following info surfaced (some interpretation involved):

  • The first Number Six seems to be wearing a red dress which seems to suggest Internal Six.
  • The dress and manner suggest that the first Number Eight is Galactica-Sharon. The interaction of scenes suggest that she is entering Cally's cell and Cally turns toward her.
  • The individual putting on the ski mask seems not to be Kara Thrace as some as thought (I did at first). A possibility is that it is Jammer. Also, the individual has blue body armor that I have not seen before.
  • The individuals wearing ski masks seem to be the collaborators:
    • The individual behind Galactica-Sharon at the detention center seems to be a guard.
    • The individual with the military truck is walking around in the middle of the day with one.
    • The title screen stating "WILL YOU HIDE YOUR FACE."
    • None of the probable resistance members seem to be using them.
  • Ellen Tigh seems to be undressing for Cavel (the hair). She appears NOT to be enjoying herself.
  • The individual against the tree appears to be Anders under attack.
  • It is probably Roslin (the hair again) that Tigh tells they have a war to fight.
  • The scene is split, but it appears that Kara stabs Leoben in neck and kicks him across the room.
  • A Number Eight in a blue Colonial uniform is with Anders and the group under attack in the river. Does this suggest Caprica-Sharon as made it to New Caprica, or has Galatica-Sharon joined the resistance?
  • The collaborator on the ramp appears to have a black and white patch on the left sleeve of the jacket. The patch is a large letter C. It could be an armband. It is also on the individual at the military truck

After watching this many times, the a majority of related scenes seem to be shown out of order. For example, I feel that the conversation with Lee and Dee happened before his conversation with his father.

New Info

During the rerun of Home II, additional scenes were shown ( I am doing these from memory so please correct and they are not in order):

  • Kara Thrace screaming through the cell bars, "Let me out."
  • Kara violently stabbing someone.
  • Apparently, Tyrol is talking to Saul Tigh while sitting outside the tent saying, "There are some things that you don't do Colonel, even in war."
  • It appears that the scenes of the of Tigh saying that the Old Man won't leave them and Anders saying that the Galactica won't be coming back is part of the same conversation.
  • William Adama saying,"Get your men ready."
  • A new scene of commandos getting ready.
  • A closeup of the Number Eight and Anders at the river with her saying to Anders, "Shh! Did you hear that?". The uniform doesn't look blue in this shot.
  • Saul Tigh saying, "There's no boundaries for the Cylons, there's no boundaries for us."
  • Ellen Tigh having sex with the person that is sitting in the chair.

Teaser From SG1-200

  • Narration is by Tigh and Tyrol:
  • Tigh : "In the fight to protect our future, we must confront our past. the lies we've told, the decisions we'd made, the people we have loved. As the struggle for survivie continues, we can't face our enemy until we face ourselves."
  • Tyrol: "Some things that you just don't do Colonel, not ever in war."
  • The shots:
  • A hidden shot of who may be Kara Thrace.
  • A closeup of the injured eye of Tigh for the side.

Xbox Teaser

Just listing the new stuff.

  • This teaser can be confusing because it starts with the destruction of the Armistice Station and spends a minute or so catching the view up.
  • A collaborator (in a ski mask) releases Cally in the forest which fits with a previous shot of Cally running through the woods.
  • Lee answering the wireless and saying "What the frak do you want from me!".
  • Adama saying to Lee, "Get you men ready (this part had been aired before), or I will find someone who can!"
  • At the end, Adama says, "It's going to be okay."

Webisodes Teaser

Just the highlights.

  • Tigh is sitting and drinking saying, "We need more people, or the resistance movement gonna die in its crib."
  • Duck ripping down a recruitment poster for the NCP, saying, "If you work for the toasters, it's treason."
  • Jammer? (i think) saying, "May the gods forgive us."

New Teaser from Eureka

If you remember a shot of Roslin and Anders together:

  • Anders: What's so important about this kid?
  • Roslin: She may very well be the shape of things to come.

Shows Maya and Hera sitting on the ground playing.

  • Number 3 (D'anna??): I was having stranges dream that made me question my faith.
  • Ellen Tigh(to Colonel Tigh?: I want you to know that I would have done anything to save you.
  • Baltar looks up into the face of a Number Six as she holds his face in her hands while she says, "Sometimes you have to do things that you hate, so you can survive to fight another day."
  • Adama: I coming back, and I'm going to bring them with me.

New Teaser from Stargate Atlantis

The shots are shown while Admiral Adama broadcasts a "rally the troops" speech over the wireless.
Admiral Adama: 'Take a good look at the men and women that stand next to you. Remember their faces, for one day you will tell you children that you serve with such men and woman. The dignity and Integrity of the Human Race ride with us.

Teaser From Dr. Who - Christmas Vacation

Just a couple of quick notes on new stuff (may not be perfect):

  • Adama to Sharon (who is uniform): "Good hunting, Lieutenant."
  • Starbuck attacking Baltar (probably) or Gaeta. Tigh standing near.
  • Adama: "All hands! All hands! Get ready to jump!"
  • Tigh: "You work for the Cylons, you're a target."
  • Cavil: Send the message that the gloves are coming off."
  • Adama: "Pull them in!"
  • Caprica-Six: "Stop this! Now!"
  • Boomer? with a pistol.
  • An old scene of Tyrol and Helo fighting???
  • All the VFX shots look old.
  • Voiceover: "The time has come, to return from the edge, and kick some ass!"

Analysis

  • The Cylons have created a human police force aiding the Cylons. They wear black ski masks, blue body armor, and a green uniform with a white armband with a dark letter "C". They have been seen as prison guards and rounding up other citizens.
  • Leoben Conoy has Kara Thrace imprisoned in what looks like an apartment. He introduces Kara to a small blonde girl as the girl's mother. Kara is in some sort of black dress. Sometime in the future, in the same apartment, Kara stabs Leoben in the neck, kicks him across the room, then proceeds to stab him violently over and over again.
  • The discussion between Tyrol and Tigh about certain things one doesn't do even in war may be about the use of suicide bombers, given Tyrol's religious beliefs.
  • Given a purported interview in SFX magazine, the Number Eight in the "River" shot is probably C-Sharon.
  • It appears that Adama conducts a SAR or recon mission to New Caprica before the "big battle."
  • The Xbox teaser begin showing the extent of the rift between the Adamas about going back to New Caprica.
  • From the webisode teaser, it appears that in the beginning the resistance may not be that popular.
  • The Cylons are recruiting for the NCP (guess - New Caprica Police?).
