Galactica and Pegasus Kick Ass

Here are several scenes from Youtube featuring Exodus Parts 1 and 2 from Season 3 of the Battlestar Galactica. The pre-battle speech by Admiral Adama, like Henry V's St. Crispin speech, is really inspirational.

Until recently, Youtube had a video that featured the entire Battle of New Caprica, but it has since disappeared. The two videos above, while having about a minute of overlap, captures most of it.

Season 4 of Battlestar Galactica is not slated to begin until January of 2008, though there will be a Pegasus movie on the Sci-Fi Channel in November called "Razors". I am really looking forward to seeing that.

Given the pounding that Galactica received in the Battle of New Caprica (I tried to find a picture of it, but without success), the damage she sustained means that she probably at best has one more fight left in her. So, I am guessing that Season 4, which is going to be the last season, is going to be rather skimpy on space battles. I am not privy to any spoilers, but it wouldn't surprise me if the series ends with Galactica being destroyed holding off the Cylons one last time while the civilian fleet escapes. I am still not sure how I feel about the revelation that Tigh, Tyrol, Anders and Tori are Cylons. Ronald Moore's got some splainin' to do.

I'm glad we'll have a resolution. Instead of the series being run into the ground until it's cancelled.
