* An entire subplot was cut involving [[Boxey (RDM)|Boxey]] spread out over several scenes. First, the opening scene where [[Sharon Valerii|Boomer]] is confused about where she is and what she is doing is extended with Boomer finding a towel in her bag and using it to wipe her dirty hands.  Next, Boomer returns to her room after replacing the detonator and encounters Boxey, who picks the lock on her locker and goes through her duffle bag, taking the aforementioned towel. The next deleted scene is another extension during Tyrol's investigation of the sabotaged water tank in which he touches a piece of metal and gets dirt on his gloves of the same type Boomer wipes off at the beginning of the episode.  In the next scene, Boxey accompanies Tyrol to see Boomer after she discovers water and waits outside while they talk, attempting to sell [[Crashdown]] some [[ambrosia]] he swiped from the engine room. Finally, after Boomer and [[Galen Tyrol|Tyrol]] finish talking Tyrol notices Boxey is holding the towel he swiped from Boomer earlier, makes the connection between the stains on the towel and the dirt from the water tank, and realizes that Boomer may actually be responsible.

However, they don't appear to take place concurrently as evident by Tyrol's position in both scenes.

=== [[Pegasus (episode)|Pegasus]] ===
There are no deleted scenes for this episode on the official site, nor on any DVD set. This is probably because almost all of these deleted scenes were re-edited into the [[Pegasus (Extended Version)|Director's Cut]] of "Pegasus" included in the R1 Season 2.5 and the R2 Season 2 DVD sets.

* '''Scene 18''': On ''Galactica''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s flight deck, Apollo exits the Raptor only to be welcomed aboard by Dualla, who is asked to direct Lee to Admiral Adama's quarters. Dualla confronts Lee regarding his avoidance of her, telling him that she overheard what he told Kara Thrace after the [[Battle of the Resurrection Ship|destruction of the Resurrection Ship]]. He claims that he was "sick, delirious" and that "whatever [he] was feeling, [he] never meant to dump it on [her]". She calls him out on it, claiming that she thought she was the only one who sometimes believed that she was "better off on [[Caprica (RDM)|Caprica]]" with the dead. He then chastises her voicing this feeling, despite harboring it himself. After climbing up the ladder to the upper deck, he gets a flashback of looking down on [[Gianne]], his former fiancé, with whom he broke up with prior to the [[Fall of the Twelve Colonies|Cylon attack]].
*:'''Note''': Dualla is from [[The Twelve Colonies (RDM)#Sagittaron|Sagittaron]], not Caprica.
* '''Scene 25''': Apollo reports to ''Pegasus''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s CIC. He asks to report to Commander Trammel, but ''Pegasus''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s new XO, [[Renner]], informs him that Trammel is on his way to ''Galactica'' for "meet and greet" with Admiral Adama. When Apollo requests to see all logs, duty rosters and security reports, Renner begins his spiel about running warships for 20 years and is insulted that ''Pegasus'' crewmen are not running the investigation. Renner also laments that ''Pegasus'' was fine until "''Galactica'' showed up" and that Adama can take his investigation and go "frak himself"; Apollo pins Renner to the table, saying that there was a time where he would have agreed with him. Renner orders the readied [[Colonial Marine Corps|Marines]] to stand down. Lee then warns Renner that if he should "say another word against my father, [that] next time, you won't get up" and leaves the CIC.
*:'''Note''': Barry Trammel would later be renamed to [[Barry Garner]] due to legal issues resulting from someone actually having that name. Also, Renner is never seen or mentioned again during [[Season 2 (2005-06)|Season 2]].
* '''Scene 39''' (extended): Apollo regains consciousness in Shevon's quarters on ''[[Cloud 9]]'' after being attack by Phelan's men. When he goes to lay down on the bed after the altercation, the scene transitions to a flashback where Shevon talks to Lee about [[Gianne]], commenting that it's a "pretty name"; Lee reveals that it took him weeks to pronounce it correctly, although Gianne never corrected him, and that Gianne herself hated the name since no one could ever pronounce it correctly.  After she comments that he must have truly loved her, he remarks that he wondered whether he really did. The flashback ends, resuming on the carcass of Fisk's killer with a bullet hole in his head and Lee calling for help.
* '''Scene 46-46A''': Apollo is on ''Prometheus'' attempting to find Phelan. When walking the corridors, he is stopped by [[Linden]]. Apollo asks Linden where Phelan is, but he doesn't reveal anything until Lee gives him something to trade. After a slight altercation, Lee trades off Shevon's pocket picture holder and gets his information which leads him to Phelan's bar. Apollo opens the hatch and is stopped by a guard, who he disables, as well as a second guard that comes charging down the corridor. As Apollo is viciously punching this second guard, a third henchman surprises him by putting a gun to his head, commenting: "Ever get the feeling that your living the same bad day again?"
*:'''Note''': John Mann, who played Linden, also portrayed ''Galactica''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s [[CAG]], [[Jackson Spencer]], in the Miniseries.
* '''Scene 47''' (Extended scene): Apollo attempts to comfort Shevon after killing Phelan at the table. Shevon rebukes Apollo, saying that she can never be Gianne.

[[Tucker Clellan|Clellan]] comments on [[Brent Baxton]]'s watch, saying that BB should leave his watch to him so that he doesn't have to bid on it at the auction. Clellan saunters out of the pilots bunk, leaving the two nuggets bewildered about Clellan's comments about an "auction", to which the episode cuts...At the auction, Lee Adama is auctioning off a copy of ''[[Nymph]]'', which [[Brendan Costanza]] wins. During this, Clellan looks at Baxton while pointing at his watch, which results in a concerned look on Braxton's face, as Braxton looks at his own watch.
* '''Scene 8 pt.:''' Starbuck attempts to jump over the tables in the rec room. In this version, [[Karl Agathon]] attempts to pick up Thrace, but eventually sets her down in a corner nook of the lounge. Clark asks Adama whether it's always "like this", to which Adama replies that it is not and "it gets a little rowdy". The scene ends when Thrace begins to tear up.
* '''Scene 21:''' The scripted version. Gaeta announces Roslin's arrival in CIC, to which everyone stands at attention. Once at ease, Roslin goes on to inform them that the mining ship has broken another drill bit, meaning a delay of eight more days. Tigh does not react well to this and goes on to say that it isn't easy sending kids off to a shooting gallery; Tigh advocates that they should just take the metal they have mined and cut their losses. Roslin replies that the mining team has discovered a rich vein of ore, enough to build two entire squadrons of Vipers.  The good news is that ''Pegasus''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s production team has turned out its first combat ready Viper. Roslin sternly informs Tigh that he must respect this operation, for it is vital to the long term survival of the Fleet. After the discussion ends, a firefight is heard over the wireless, which results in [[Snake]]'s death. Roslin then asks whether the destruction of the [[Resurrection Ship]] resulted in a change of Cylon tactics, which Adama replies that Thrace is working on it. The scene ends in [[Sharon Agathon|Sharon]]'s brig, where Sharon says that Scar may have died a dozen times.
*:'''Note''': Snake doesn't die in the aired version and is later mentioned as a replacement pilot for Starbuck.
* '''Scene 36 pt.:''' (Extended scene). Lee Adama tells Thrace that bright, shiny futures are overrated. Inebriated, Thrace asks whether Adama can picture himself with a wife, to which both hysterically laugh at the prospect. Thrace continues on this line of joking, saying that the Gods would give Adama a porch swing. Adama admits that he "thought about it once" and thought that a "stinky rugrat" (Thrace's words) would be nice.
* '''Scene 63-64:''' Alternate ending. Kat is walking through the [[memorial hallway]], where she hangs a picture of [[Reilly]]'s girlfriend. Meanwhile, Thrace is praying over her Lords of Kobol figurines, promising to return for [[Samuel Anders]].

Here, Abinell is on the phone to [[Sesha Abinell|his wife]], telling her that he is finishing up work on replacing heat sensors on ''[[Greenleaf]]''. He then looks out the window and sees dozens of [[Raider (RDM)|Cylon Raiders]]. Hurriedly, he says his goodbye to Sesha and hangs up, running down the corridor as a raider begins its strafing run. The windows of the compartment he is in are compromised and Abinell, despite his vain effort to hold on to piping that runs along the corridor, is sucked out into space.
The following scene was formerly available online.

=== [[The Captain's Hand]] ===
The following scenes are from the [[Season 2.5 DVD]].
* '''Scene 9:''' (Extended scene). This scene starts off with Garner berating [[Kara Thrace]] for not keeping track of her pilots' whereabouts or situation. In this scene, [[Hoshi]] is relieved of his post, and replaced with [[Abel Thornton]], after failing to inform Garner that a [[Raptor]] was requesting launch clearance. Garner goes on to state that there is no excuse for the lack of cohesion that is apparent in the ''Pegasus'' crew.
* '''Scene 35:''' Thrace and Lee Adama argue over giving Garner respect; Thrace believes that the people should have a leader worthy of their respect. The scene ends when a call for flight deck personnel to report to their stations is made.
* '''Scenes 62-68:''' Alternate scene. The scenes that did not make the final cut for "The Captain's Hand" are the ones pertaining to [[Rya Kibby]]'s attempted suicide after her abortion. Laura Roslin is looking out a window on ''[[Colonial One]]''. Meanwhile, an orderly on ''Galactica'' discovers that Rya Kibby has overdosed on pills and lays on the sickbay bed, unconscious and with a rosary in her hand. The orderly presses what appears to be an alarm button on the panel above the bed. In a scene that made the final cut, we jump back to ''Colonial One'', where [[Tory Foster]] brings in [[Sarah Porter]], the [[The Twelve Colonies (RDM)#Gemenon|Gemenese]] delegate to the [[Quorum of Twelve (RDM)|Quorum of Twelve]]. Porter begins attacking Roslin over not prosecuting Kibby for going through with the abortion. Roslin replies that the grant for asylum came before the law was signed and thus no laws have been broken; Roslin also adds that Porter has her "pound of flesh" and suggests that "you take your victory and move on". Back in ''Galactica''&#39;s sickbay, Doctor [[Cottle]] and nurses attempt to resuscitate Kibby and ultimately succeed in doing so.
* '''Scene 69 pt.:''' Lee Adama jokingly asks Kara Thrace whether she has a brain. As they hug, Dualla walks in; Thrace excuses herself and states that she'll put the boots outside for them.  Dualla then states that "you're not going to tell me about promotions, are you?" and discuss Adama's promotion to commander of ''Pegasus'' and how their relationship will work now that they are separated from one another physically; they begin to make out after Dualla asks whether or not Thrace was joking about the boots outside the door.
The following scenes were formerly available online.
* Over dinner Adama and Tigh discuss [[Barry Garner|Commander Garner]]. Tigh wonders how he managed to lose two Raptors and complains about the general state of the ship. Adama says that he sent Apollo over to keep an eye on Garner and to give him someone he can trust. Tigh asks if Adama still thinks about making Apollo ''Pegasus'''s XO.
*:'''Note''': This clears up Apollo's somewhat unclear status in the aired episode. He is not officially Garner's XO.
* Tory Foster tells Roslin that they'll lose the election if they lose the Gemenese and urges her to reconsider her stance on abortion in order to win. Roslin asks her if that is also the right thing to do. Foster replies that she is not there to be Roslin's counsel or conscience, but to help her to win.

The following scenes are from the [[Season 2.5 DVD]].
* '''Scene 32:''' [[Laura Roslin]] visits [[Hera Agathon|Hera]] in ''Galactica''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s sickbay and tearfully thanks her for [[Epiphanies|saving her life]].
* '''Scene 34-36:''' Baltar visits [[Gina]] on ''Cloud 9'' in an attempt to convince her to orchestrate Hera's theft. Gina resists as she views [[Sharon Agathon|Caprica Sharon]] as a deserter and her "half-breed child" to be no better. She also scoffs Baltar's attempts to convince her on religious grounds; Baltar's Six appears and reiterates her view that Gina is a "broken machine" who has lost her faith in God. Gina bluntly reminds Baltar that Roslin is leading him by 3 points in the current polls, which is what his energies should be focused upon. Baltar fine tunes his argument, ultimately convincing Gina that the theft of a Cylon child from ''Galactica'' would be politically destructive as it would undermine Roslin's credibility as a wartime leader.
* '''Scene 34-36 (continued):''' [[D'Anna Biers]], [[Tory Foster]] and Roslin hold a meeeting on ''Colonial One'', where Biers attempts to convince Roslin to grant her exclusive access to Hera as word of the birth has apparently spread throughout the Fleet. After the discussion, Roslin agrees, as it would be beneficial for both parties: people can see the Cylon child as looking the same as a normal human child and Biers gets exclusive pictures.
* '''Scene 48:''' Biers and Gina are on ''Cloud 9'' discussing how they will take the child. In her camera case, Biers has built a life-support system to secret the child off ''Galactica'', which is hidden in the bulky case. When Biers claims that "little Hera will be comfortable" in the contraption, Gina retorts that the child should not be named after a human god. When briefly discussing what they should call her, Gina says "just call her 13", which Biers favorably responds to.
* '''Scene 54:''' Biers is outside of sickbay with a [[Colonial Marine Corps|Marine]] and [[Layne Ishay]]. Ishay tells her that Biers can't see the baby. As Biers attempts to gain access, noting that Roslin herself approved the visit, [[Karl Agathon|Helo]] calls Biers a "stupid frakking vulture" when telling her that Hera is dead. Ishay claims that the baby died 20 minutes ago, which shocks Biers.

* '''Scene 78''': Commander [[Lee Adama]] is laying in his bunk on ''Pegasus''. [[Anastasia Dualla|Dualla]] is also present getting dressed after their sexual encounter; she comments that Adama hasn't signed the papers and she is a courier on official business.

He remarks that Cavil almost got him to believe that he was a Cylon and that the two Cavils were thrown out of an airlock the night before. Cally tries to drink the liquor, but can't handle it, to which they both giggle. Cally then slowly approaches Tyrol and kisses him, much to his surprise, to which Cally replies "What, you didn't know?"
* '''Scene 123B''': Baltar is on a Raptor where he has flashbacks of meeting [[Gina]] on ''Pegasus'' and their subseqent encounters on ''[[Cloud 9]]''. This Raptor is headed to ''Cloud 9'', where Baltar enters the ship through a hatch where two Marines are waiting and one follows to close the hatch. He is saluted by a fourth Marine as he enters a more decorative part of ''Cloud 9''.
* '''Scene 141''': Baltar is sitting on ''[[Colonial One]]''. Admiral Adama gives the newly elected president news of ''Cloud 9's'' destruction, stating that they believe the nuclear warhead was stolen from his lab on ''Galactica'' and that the warhead was smuggled onboard ''Cloud 9'' by a Cylon. As Adama explains his belief that this incident might be the first step to a Cylon attack within the Fleet, Baltar is having flashbacks of being tended to by Gina, as she dresses him after their sexual encounter. Baltar rebukes Adama's attempts to tighten internal security and instead believes that their first priority is to the people, and to see that they are safely established on [[New Caprica]]. Once that is done, he believes that the tragedy would be put behind them. Adama bluntly retorts that Baltar is not listening; he replies that "I don't have to listen. I'm the president." Baltar orders that "Settlement begins and begins now". After Adama leaves, Baltar remembers the sad look on Gina's face the final time he saw her.

*'''Scene 73''': Kara Thrace goes into the bathroom, turns the water on so that it will overflow, secures the door, and begins to cut into her wrist with a piece of metal. Leoben breaks the door open and finds Kara with the bleeding gash in her wrist. He asks her how he can give the life she can have.
Other omitted scenes:
* [[Aaron Doral]] pokes out [[Saul Tigh]]'s eye with a hot poker. However the footage was abandoned in lieu of allowing the "viewer to simply imagine what the Cylons had done than to actually see it" for it was believed that it would be "far more unsettling".<ref>{{cite companion|season=3|page=32}}</ref>
=== [[Precipice]] ===
'''Scene 107''': Baltar talks to Roslin in her detention cell. While [[Caprica-Six]] watches him behind a one-way mirror, Baltar tells Roslin that the Cylons are machines that reason where humans feel, and that because of their use of logic they will see the flaw in the occupation and terminate it.
=== [[Exodus, Part I]] ===
There are no deleted scenes from this episode available..
=== [[Exodus, Part II]] ===
*'''Scene 99''': Kat watches over the hangar deck and turns to meet Admiral Adama. He reminds her of the difficulty of the rescue mission. Their dialogue turns into more of a heart-to-heart exchange. He ends their conversation by telling Kat to "go give 'em hell."
*:'''Note''': The scene was filmed following production of "The Passage".<ref>{{cite companion|season=3|page=66}}</ref> Some of Adama's dialogue seems to have been set-up to foreshadow the revelation of Kat's past.
*'''Scene 102-104''': (Extended Scene) Admirial Adama walks out among ''Galactica''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s halls after having shaved off his [[Adamastache|mustache]], watching crew and civilians before entering the CIC where [[Hoshi]], Dualla, Lee, and Helo are talking about repairs, refueling, and refugees. Admirial makes putting a CAP out to protect them a priority. They're dismissed except Lee, whom the older Adama talks about reinstated as the "old new CAG."
=== [[Collaborators]] ===
*'''Scene 24''': Samuel Anders finds his wife in the empty [[pilot ready room]], and they talk about her rejoining the military.

She tries to hold his hand, but he pulls away and walks out of the room.
Other omitted scenes:
* A sub-plot featuring [[Tory Foster]] supplying information to the [[Circle]] via then-President [[Tom Zarek]] was shot, as well as [[Laura Roslin]]'s discovery of Foster's involvement.<ref>{{cite companion|season=3|page=44}}</ref>
=== [[Torn]] ===
*'''Scene 34''': Baltar walks with Caprica-Six where a Five and Three are with [[Hera Agathon|Hera]]. They talk about [[projection]], and Three says that she prefers to be in a house of [[God (RDM)|God]] (Hera's crib from Baltar's vision on Kobol can be seen in the background). Three then tells [[Sharon Valerii|Boomer]] that the others have decreed that she be allowed to take care of Hera due to the Eights' bond with the child, as well as her life with the humans. They credit her with the child's creation, but she insists that it was [[Sharon Agathon|Sharon]], not her. Three then thanks Baltar, but he claims only to have been following God's will. Three says that he must be a very important part of God's plan, adding, "It's almost like you're one of us."
=== [[A Measure of Salvation]] ===
*'''Scene 14-19''': Caprica-Six and a Three ponder why Baltar would go through the trouble of gaining their trust and then betray them so quickly. As their conversation continues, we see Caprica-Six projecting herself in a forest while Three projects herself again in a church, the settings changing depending on whomever is speaking. Six believes that Baltar is mentally confined as he is not able to project. Three concurs and asks Six if he is guilty. Six doesn't know, but lists his many foibles inherit in his human nature. Three then suggests that Six is jealous of Baltar's growing closeness of her. They then agree that to get him to confess, they have to do what must be done, "by any means necessary."
*'''Scene 35''': Kara walks into the prison cell with the ill Cylons and confronts a Leoben. He goes through his usual mind-games, but Kara taunts him in return, offering to take him in her arms. However, he is in too much physical pain. She then tells the Cylons that they don't have to die, and brings in a healthy [[Number Five]] to prove it. Leoben tells her that he's not afraid to die, putting their faith in God and His plans, but Kara believes that the Gods or God has more important things to worry about, playing on their doubts. That's when a [[Simon]] model comes forward.
*'''Scene 60''': Admiral Adama tells ''Galactica''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s pilots that the President has allowed the use of biological weapons, at which point Helo asks permission to be relieved. His request is granted and Gaeta is tasked with XO duties. Adama then lays out their plan. Lee then says that due to the importance of the mission everyone grounded for disciplinary actions is reinstated - which means Starbuck. As everyone is dismissed, Athena and Admiral Adama share a tense look before she walks out of the room.
Other omitted scenes:
* A scene of William Adama surveying the infected baseship in [[Sharon Agathon]]'s Raptor was dropped for time.
* At the request of [[Michael Hogan]], a scene where [[Saul Tigh]] challenges [[Karl Agathon]]'s work as ''Galactica''<nowiki>'s</nowiki> executive officer and his marriage to Sharon was cut.

=== [[Hero]] ===
*[[Bulldog]] explains how he was able to find the [[The Fleet (RDM)|rag-rag fleet]]. After assuring Adama that leaving him was the right thing to do, he goes on to say that the Cylons tried to play with his head by telling him that they were successful in swiftly wiping out the [[Colonial Fleet (RDM)|Colonial Fleet]] and the [[The Twelve Colonies (RDM)|Twelve Colonies]]. To his horror, Adama tells him that it's true.
*(Extended Scene) While Caprica-Six and Three talk, Baltar wanders around the [[Basestar (RDM)|basestar]]. Initially, he gets cold or blank responses. He then fumbles for conversation by complimenting their control system before he calls himself the first guest on a baseship. A Number Five corrects him and when asked how they're treated, Five simply tells him that they have their uses.
=== [[Unfinished Business]] ===
There are no deleted scenes for this episode on the Region 1 version of the Season 3 DVD set. Any scenes that were cut have most likely been integrated into the [[Unfinished Business (Extended Version)|extended version]] of the episode.
== [[Season Four]] ==
== [[Season Four]] ==
=== [[Razor]] ===
[[Image:Caprica Transfer Station.jpg|thumb|Lee Adama at the [[Caprica Transfer Station]] awaiting his [[Viper Mark VII|Viper]].]]
The unrated and extended "[[Razor]]" [[Razor (Region 1 DVD)|DVD]] contains three deleted scenes.
* The first scene deals with Lee Adama at the [[Caprica Transfer Station]] as he awaits his Viper, so that he can participate in ''Galactica'''s decommissioning ceremony prior to the [[Fall of the Twelve Colonies]]. As he is drinking his coffee, he tells [[Frank Bruno]] about his decision to quit the [[Colonial Fleet (RDM)|Colonial Fleet]] while awaiting his Viper. Despite being accepted into test pilot school and on his way to "command a battlestar someday", Adama tells Bruno that these were his father's dreams, dreams that weren't really his to begin with. After he is notified that his ship is ready, he leaves, revealing that [[Kendra Shaw]] is also present, awaiting her ship to ''Pegasus'' to begin her assignment as Admiral [[Helena Cain]]'s aide.
:''See [[List of Deleted Scenes - Season 4 (RDM)]]''
* The second deleted scene deals with Thrace talking to Shaw after Shaw is shot by a Centurion. Up until that point, Shaw didn't admit to executing the mother on the ''[[Scylla]]''. Thrace confesses that "she did [shoot]", which leads into the next deleted scene.
* The third and last deleted scene takes place 12 hours after "[[33]]", with [[Kara Thrace]] and Lee Adama replaying gun camera footage from their successful attack on the ''[[Olympic Carrier]]''. Adama goes through the gun footage, finding that there's a brief shadow in one of the windows which he shows Thrace. He believes the shadow is from a person aboard the ''Carrier'', although Thrace claims that it could be anything from a trick of light to a bulkhead. Sick of reviewing the footage and discussing the issue, Thrace tells Adama that they'll have to get used to it, as she suspects that they'll have to take lives -- or even leave people behind -- in order to save others.

Revision as of 09:55, 23 March 2008

For deleted scenes from the Original Series, see List of Deleted Scenes (TOS).

This page lists deleted scenes that never made the final cut of the episode for any number of reasons. Most of these are available on the Region 1 DVDs. The Region 2 DVDs only have deleted scenes for Season 1 and the first half of Season 2, but none for the second half of Season 2 or Season 3. Many scenes not on DVD - or only on the Region 1 sets - used to be available online on SciFi Pulse, but most were deleted recently.


They are available on the Region 1 version of the Miniseries DVD. Below is a list, as they appear on that DVD.

  • Billy Keikeya meets Laura Roslin aboard Colonial Heavy 798; Roslin has just heard that she has terminal breast cancer.
  • As Apollo's Viper is about to dock with Galactica, Aaron Doral poses questions to the film crew as to why Vipers and their landings are not automated.
  • Boomer and Helo make a difficult landing on Galactica, replete with incomplete CGI. This scene was to separate two of the prominent sex scenes, the first with Gaius Baltar and Number Six, and the second with Boomer and Chief Tyrol. According to David Eick, his "biggest regret" is cutting the scene, as "[w]ithout it, I think we inadvertently created this idea that we were trying to be the show that was going to have lots of sex in it."[1]
  • Cally, Socinus and Prosna talk about Valerii's and Tyrol's forbidden relationship.
  • (Extended Scene) Billy and Dualla walk out of the unisex head to rejoin Commander Adama and Roslin.
  • Adama remotely detonates Galactica's remaining munitions, as a part of the pre-decommissioning ceremonies. (Adama implies that his father was a military man in this scene, though we later learn that his father was a civil liberties lawyer).
  • (Alternate Scene) Apollo has the Cylon missile chase him through the Colonial Fleet training range on the Trevor Moon, subsequently destroying the missile.
  • Roslin and 798's crew find Apollo's Viper adrift and recover the ship.
  • Starbuck and the Mark II Vipers take on three unsuspecting Cylon Raiders.
  • Tyrol brings Boxey to the pilot's bunk, telling the child that Galactica is a very lucky ship.
  • Roslin and Billy discuss the current situation; Roslin questions Billy's support of her.
  • Cally confronts Chief Tyrol regarding his relationship with Valerii prior to boarding Ragnar Station.

Other scenes removed from the Miniseries's final cut, include:

  • An alternate opening scene where the Armistice Officer continually visits the station year after year, progressively getting older between title cards, was shot. However, while Michael Rymer believed the scenes worked, they were too long for the Miniseries ran over an hour longer than originally intened.[2]
  • The Battlestar Galactica: The Official Companion makes mention of another scene featuring the death of Socinus, who would later become a recurring character. However, details regarding this scene are not provided.
