Comparison:

  • TV Version
  • Extended Version
Release: Jan 10, 2012 - Author: Buster - Translator: DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB - more from this series
The sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica in the USA started in 2003. Unlike the 1978 original series, the target group for the new version is a mature audience, thus the plot is more complex.

Of course, the main parts of the plot stayed the same: Human life has it's origin on planet Kobol with its 13 tribes. 12 of these moved to found their own colonies on other planets.

After the genocide of the human race - arranged by the Cylons - a convoy of survivors heads off. Lead by Battlestar Galactica they're trying to find the legendary 13th colony: Earth.


For quite some time now ther exist Blu-Ray and DVD sets that include the 6 extended episodes; these sets were both released in the USA and the UK.

Even though the extended scenes rarely (if at all) contain any dialogue there still are some very interesting differences.
