Mini-Episodes Return

This is also something that's probably common knowledge by now, but various sources have reported that there will be several mini-episodes coming back just prior to the release of Razor.

'Razor' Promo Episodes To Air On SciFiWill be included in uncut 'Battlestar Galactica' DVD release
They aren't exactly Webisodes like fans got with "The Resistance" last year, but SciFi Channel is taking a similar route in an effort to promote the upcoming "Battlestar Galactica" telemovie "Razor."The network plans to air an eight-week series of shorts lasting between two and three minutes that will give fans some background on the original Cylon-Colonial War, featuring scenes of a young William "Husker" Adama as a Viper pilot, according to a press release by the network.
The mini-episodes will premiere in October during the network's primetime schedule, and will star Nico Cortez as the young Adama, who discovers a weapon that will provide the backdrop for the upcoming telemovie featuring the Battlestar Pegasus.

We temporarily interrupt this Stargate news coverage for some frelling (and frakking) big news from SCI FI Channel.

SCI FI Development Slate Unveiled
SCI FI Channel announced a development slate of original programming at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif., on July 15, including exclusive "mini-sodes" tied to the upcoming Battlestar Galactica: Razor movie; an animated comedy from Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels, Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker; a miniseries to be executive-produced by Thomas Jane (The Punisher) and comic-book author Steve Niles (30 Days of Night); and a miniseries executive-produced by Farscape veterans Ben Browder and Andrew Prowse.
In advance of the two-hour movie Battlestar Galactica: Razor on Nov. 24, SCI FI will air an eight-week series of exclusive mini-sodes, between two and three minutes in length, beginning in October. The promotional shorts will provide a backdrop to events that will take place in the rest of the fourth season of Battlestar. Written by Michael Taylor and directed by Wayne Rose and Felix Alcala, the shorts will take place during the original Cylon War and center on a young William Adama (played by Nico Cortez), who discovers a dangerous Cylon weapon that will come to haunt him and his crew 40 years later. The mini-sodes will be available on SCIFI.COM after they debut on the network.
