Comparison between the TV Version and the Exteneded Version. The TV Version is taken from the RC1 Season 2.0 box, the Extended from the Australian RC4 box, both by Universal. The key episode of the second season had to be cut in order to fit into the usual TV schedule. This means that almost one hour of footage had to be cut down to 42 minutes. Except for one censorship cut, the alterations are not really grave, however, the long version feels more complete and more pleasant to watch. The fact that some pieces of dialog and plot are missing is noticeable and the influence the Pegasus has on the Galactica is also more present.

The Extended Cut is about 775 sec longer than the TV Version

Then the alarm starts and the group dissolves.
