Mission Galactica:The Cylon Attack

Post by johnnybear » Fri Jun 23, 2017 7:29 am

In the movie version of MG:TCA we get to see The Imperious Leader's Basestar assume orbit around Gammoray and then a Centurion enter his chamber informing him of their position above the beknighted planet and not only does he say in his best McNee "Excellent, excellent!" But we also get our best view of his strangely weird features!
My gripe is that this scene is not in The Living Legend part two at all, not even in the deleted scenes and it seems like a great waste for it not to have been! :frack:
Plus also why didn't Baltar and the other Basestar commanders not realise their leader was there to dedicate the base and what a distance he had covered just to do it!! Makes you wonder if The Galactica had really moved that far at all in space even if Gammoray was in another galaxy! :blink:

The scene of the Imperious Leader in "Mission Galactica" was indeed taken from the pilot episode, which also explains his small winged lizard pet still sitting on his arm.

After the Leader was gone in the pilot and replaced by a successor, the lizard pet also disappeared.

Would also wish to know why they hadn't included the scene in the deleted scenes on the bonus features of the DVD box set.

Thanks, Red Eye! I really loved that scene and was gutted when it didn't appear in The Living Legend. Patrick MacNee recorded new dialogue for this scene and the episode as well and I feel cheated by it's loss! :huh:
