That right there is the last thing we saw at the end of season 4.0. A wrecked planet we PRESUME to be Earth.
As things currently stand, some Cylons believe they are the children of humanity. That would make humans their parents. Other Cylons believe that parents have to die because it’s the only way children come into their own.
And that’s how we’re looking at the upcoming season of Battlestar Galactica 4.5.
January 2009 is going to be one heck of a month for many shows that started taking their mid-season breaks earlier this year. Most shows are taking a few months off… while Sci Fi Channel has set some kind of record somewhere for the longest break ever.
If all the hype about BSG is as we suspect it to be, we’ll be in for a treat. If not, NBC affiliate The Sci Fi Channel is going to suffer one of the biggest public lashings we’re ever going to see a network take. I had tried interviewing a Centurion at Comic-Con San Diego, but he was mum about the whole deal… even though I suspect that the Centurions are still waiting to play a trump card.
In the promo, we see President Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) asking Admiral William Adama (Edward James Olmos): “If you’re a Cylon, I’d like to know.” Adama replies, “If I’m a Cylon, you’re really screwed.”
If Sci Fi hands us a dud come January, they’re really screwed!
In the meantime, Sci Fi has released an online teaser trailer to keep us fluttering about with anticipation. Keeping the bait fresh I guess.
Of all the moments in the teaser, the first half of the teaser is a set of previous scenes – the rest are presumably scenes from next year. The trailer ends with Roslin yelling angrily that “I’m coming for all of you!”, her voice echoing throughout the area she’s in – and that scene is an attention getter for me.

See ya’ll on January 16th, 2009! Or whenever you watch your DVR’d episode. Below is one of the bad guys in the flick! I surrender!
