A TV movie based on 'Battlestar Galactica', 'The Plan' is taking the story on board the Cylon ships from the point of view of the Cylons.
With "Battlestar Galactica" winding down on Friday, March 20, Sci Fi is gearing up for the two-hour event which provides as the extension of the series in Fall. Set as a TV movie, "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan" will revolve around the plan when Cylons are operating on board the Cylon ships before and after the attack.
"The Plan" is directed by series star Edward James Olmos and written by series writer Jane Espenson. Official synopsis has not been disclosed but Kate Vernon who plays the final Cylon, Ellen Tigh, said that she is involved in it and gave a little bit of the frame.
She explained to NY Post, "You'll definitely have a few 'ah ha' moments. But there's a big chunk of what's been happening on the show that this movie will show the moments right before. You'll get a big piece of the puzzle from 'The Plan. It'll just slide right into focus. The movie will open up the show for fans in a big way, because there's a giant piece missing and this will show you the bigger picture."
Apart from having "The Plan", "Battlestar" continues its legacy with "Caprica" which is set 50 years earlier. "Caprica" will tell the story of how humanity first created the robotic Cylons, who would later plot to destroy human civilization. It is picked up by Sci Fi again, and is expected to be premiered in early 2010.
