Universal Studios Home Entertainment controls the publishing rights to the modern Battlestar Galactica shows. And they have a plan.
On October 27, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan will debut on Blu-ray Disc and DVD before it airs on SyFy, and will include footage deemed unfit for television audiences. Stepping behind the camera to direct The Plan rather than in front of it is Admiral Adama himself, Edward James Olmos.
The Cylons began as humanity’s robot servants. They rebelled and evolved and now they look like us. Their plan is simple: destroy the race that enslaved them. But when their devastating attack leaves human survivors, the Cylons have to improvise. Battlestar Galactica: The Plan tells the story of two powerful Cylon leaders, working separately, and their determination to finish the task.
On Blu-ray, The Plan will be presented in 1.78:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. A trivia challenge will be exclusive to Blu-ray while the other extras are shared between the two formats.
