Just in from the SciFi Wire:
Galactica Finale Goes Long
SCI FI Channel will air a special expanded episode of its original series Battlestar Galactica as the March 10 season-two finale, starting at 10 p.m. ET/PT. In the expanded finale cliffhanger, the outcome of the presidential campaign hinges upon a core debate: whether or not to abandon the search for Earth when the Galactica crew discovers a habitable planet. When the election begins to swing in favor of Baltar (James Callis), a man whom Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) is convinced is a Cylon collaborator, the incumbent president must decide whether or not to take drastic measures for the greater good. The Galactica finale will follow the season finales of SCI FI's other hit original series, Stargate SG-1 at 8 p.m. and Stargate Atlantis at 9 p.m.
