"Razor" revolves around the harrowing adventures of young officer Kendra Shaw (Stephanie Jacobsen) who becomes a ruthless warrior under the wing of Battlestar Pegasus commander Admiral Helena Cain during a six-month siege by the Cylons. After Shaw proves herself as a battle-hardened protege, she finds difficulty dealing with Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber), whose first mission as a commander is replacing Cain on Pegasus.
The special two-hour extended episode will hit theaters, thanks to Sci Fi and Microsoft, in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas and Seattle. Admission is free, but seats are extremely limited. Ticket information can be found at www.BattlestarEvent.com.
Fans not so fortunate to make to theaters can still catch "Razor" when it premieres on Sci Fi on Nov. 24.
It was also announced Thursday (Oct. 25) that creator Ronald D. Moore will make his directorial debut on the show this season. He will write the episode, which will begin shooting before Thanksgiving.
"I've thought about directing for a long time and this season seemed like the time to finally take the plunge," said Moore. "It'll be great to be working with the BSG family of cast and crew for my first experience behind the camera, and I'm really looking forward to it."
The fourth and final season of the show will return to television in early April 2008.
