The current TV serial Battlestar Galactica is an innovative and groundbreaking sci-fi serial on many fronts and for many reasons. Probably the biggest reason is the emphasis on female characters. Probably no other sci-fi or fantasy franchise (TV or big-screen) places such large emphasis on its female characters. This made-for-DVD movie offshoot from the TV series exemplifies this emphasis on the female characters with more gusto than probably any of the regular episodes. This movie is actually a series of flashbacks interspersed within the present time frame; the latter being the period right after Admiral Cain is shot, and right before Baltar's election to the presidency. The show follows four female leads; Admiral Cain of the Battlestar Pegasus, one of her officers, Kendra Shaw, Starbuck, and the Model Six cylon that operated on Pegasus. There are also cameo appearances by Boomer and President Roslin, two other key female characters from the TV series. Between the six of them, we have a whole gamut of emotions, roles, and relations. First is the romance and then bitter fallout between Model Six and Admiral Cain. This runs in parallel with Cain's condenscension towards Kendra. This is followed up by the personal hatred and professional rivalry of Kendra Shaw and Starbuck. In the background is Roslin's distrust of Admiral Cain. In fact, the only male character with any role in the movie is Adama's flashback to the last days of the first Ceylon war. This is truly a groundbreaking sci-fi movie. All told, quite a good movie. Lots of drama, lots of action and some surprises too.

Although I hated Admiral Cain one of the reasons i liked Razor was because we got to see a bit of what the Pegasus went through after the Attacks. Not only that but Lee's early days of Commanding the Pegasus. I really liked Razor. Great Write up.
