The script was written by co-executive producer Jane Espenson. Edward James Olmos (William Adama) is the director. No air date has been announced yet but Ronald Moore stated that he believes the movie will premiere in November of this year. November or December is the usual time period for the Syfy (Sci Fi) Channel's annual big-budget TV movies or miniseries like Tin Man and the original Battlestar Galactica Miniseries from Dec. 2003.
I decided to add the episode listing to the guide at this time because too many people are unaware of it. I've received several submissions from members that change the status of this series to "Ended". I have rejected all of those submissions precisely because "The Plan" has yet to air. This will be the real finale of BSG on TV, although it will not be a continuation of the story from "Daybreak".
Jane Espenson has said that revelations from Season 4 and other seasons will show up in "The Plan" so if you are new to the series, you should watch everything in the order that it initially aired: Miniseries, Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, "Razor", Season 4 and then "The Plan". (There are also the two "webisode" series.)
NOTE: Although I posted a spoiler warning for the thread, that mostly applies to spoilers from the previous episodes of the series. You may refer to any events, characters, revelations and story lines from previously aired episodes of the series. But do not post any spoilers from unaired material. This means that you should not post about any secret info discovered from a "spoiler site" about "The Plan". Ronald Moore does not like it when episodes and plot details get leaked in advance on the Internet or elsewhere. I will respect his wishes here and block any attempts to spread leaked info on this thread and forum. Beyond that, those leaks are not authorized and downloading leaked material involves copyright and contract violations. I won't allow this forum to be used to assist anyone in breaking the letter or the spirit of the U.S. copyright laws. (This is a U.S.-based site so we follow U.S. laws here. It doesn't matter whether other countries have a different "official" view about unauthorized downloading.)
We know that the movie will follow the human-form Cylons in the time period shortly before the Cylon attack on the Colonies (as seen in the Miniseries). This was explained in the official trailer that has aired on the Sci Fi Channel many times, so this is not an unauthorized release of information. You can post general production-related info on this thread such as confirmed air date(s) or DVD releases, but do not post specifics about the story, characters, etc. unless it was formally released by the Sci Fi (Syfy) Channel. If you have an interesting tidbit from an interview with one of the actors, writers, director or other production staff, hide the spoiler info using the "spoiler" tags. (Use the square brackets around the word "spoiler" and be sure to add a closing "spoiler" tag.)
Though "Daybreak" resolved the main story of the wandering Colonial fleet, fans still have one more official BSG installment to look forward to. "Razor" was a successful TV movie. I think "The Plan" will be successful too.
