The Sci Fi Channel’s Battlestar Galactica is heading for its mid-season hiatus in a few weeks, and the final episode before the break will also be one of the most beloved – and anticipated – stories in the entire history of the Galactica mythos. Yep, the Battlestar Pegasus is coming to the new Galactica, and Now Playing magazine has nabbed an exclusive series of interviews with the cast about the episode (click here to see the video now).
“When the Pegasus arrives on the scene, it is greeted – as it were – like we’ve just been liberated,” says James Callis, who plays Baltar on the show. “It’s like we were an occupied country in the war and when we see the Pegasus it’s like the American or Allied troops rolling in. It was just so exciting to realize that there is another battlestar and other people. And that is so overwhelming.”
But things do not go as well as one might expect when the two battlestars join forces. In the episode, which airs September 23, it doesn’t take long before a conflict breaks out between the crews of the two ships.
“Apollo and Starbuck get into it with the pilots on the other ship, a power struggle,” says Katee “Starbuck” Sackhoff. “And they realize they’re like the new freshman. They get transferred over to the Pegasus and they [have] like zero kills on the board and everyone just thinks they’re idiots.”
