First Look at Razor

Entertainment Weekly has an early look at Razor:

First Look! 'Battlestar Galactica: Razor'
Get a sneak peek at the two-hour
flashback ''Razor,'' plus hints about season 4
By Adam B. Vary

Gotta love those wily scribes at Battlestar Galactica. The fourth and final (sniff!)
season of the acclaimed Sci Fi series doesn't yet have a set air date—a rep says
look for it early next year (more on that in a bit)—so for an appetizer, the
show's cooked up Razor, a two-hour flashback episode airing Nov. 24. (An
extended-cut DVD hits shelves Dec. 4.)
The story is ostensibly about the first mission of the (now-lost) Battlestar Pegasus under the command of Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber), which falls roughly in the latter half of the second season. It's told, though, through the eyes of new character Kendra Shaw (Stephanie Jacobsen). ''Lee promotes [her] to be his [second-in-command],''
explains show-runner Ronald D. Moore, ''and you wonder, who is this woman?''
That question, says Moore, allows the show to explore ''a lot of things that
we've talked about or alluded to but never actually seen. You start flashing all
the way back to before the Cylon attack on the colonies, to who she was, how she
came to the Pegasus, what happened to them, and what was their story before they
met up with Galactica.''
