Today is the big day, ladies and gentlemen! Battlestar Galactica: The Plan hits the shelves on DVD and Blu-ray, and with it so ends the final chapter of the new BSG. I’m just as sad to see the show come to and end as the rest of you, but don’t get too misty-eyed on me, your old uncle Mojo has a little ‘going away’ present in store! Of course, each and every one of you should pick up “The Plan” simply because it’s an intriguing film and features a juicy performance by the best bad guy in years, Dean “Cavil” Stockwell – but just in case you were looking for further motivation to add this DVD to your collection, it’s also hiding a very special easter egg…
Over a year ago, when production on the series was coming to a close, I was suddenly inspired with an idea on how to create the ultimate homage to the original Battlestar Galactica. It took a while to finally wrangle it all together, but, thank the gods, all the pieces fell into place and I put the finishing touches on it only a few months ago – just in time for the good folks at Universal Home Video to sneak it into “The Plan.” I’m keeping my lips sealed on exactly what the clip is all about, but suffice it to say that every fan of the original series is going to go apeshit over it.
There’s no mention of this little treat on the disc itself (it’s a secret), but here’s what you need to do to access it:
- Go to the extras menu
- Highlight the Admiral to Director featurette
- Now navigate to the right with your remote
- You should see the BSG Seal appear – hit enter and enjoy!
All I ask – for at least a few weeks – is that fellow blogs and web sites not spoil the fun and keep the exact nature of the clip a secret until fans have a chance to see it for themselves. Deal?
In a few weeks I’ll do another post about the making of the clip. Until then, try to keep your comments spoiler-free. So say we all!
