Unaired Pilot
It begins with New Gotham in chaos. In one night, Catwoman is murdered and Batgirl falls in a rain of gunfire, victims of The Joker's wrath. With his true love dead, The Caped Crusader flees the city and Batgirl, now confined to a wheelchair, redefines herself as "Oracle", a master of cybernetics and weapons design. She takes under her wing the secret daughter of Batman and Catwoman, "Huntress", who is as fierce as she is beautiful. Powerful, haunting visions lead a third young woman, Dinah, to their secret Clocktower lair. The trio is complete. They are now the Birds of Prey, determined to battle crime in a New Gotham laced with bold new villains.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Barbara is looking at the four businessmen and the current ones killed on her computer, she sends Helena to find the third one before anything happens. Before Barbara sends Helena, there is a newspaper report on her computer about the third businessman hanging himself before Helena arrives to find him hung. How can there already be a report if he has not even hung himself yet? Seems like that computer scene was suppose to be used later in the episode.

    • NOTES (11)

      • Other info on this episode can be seen in the Notes, Allusions, etc. for the Pilot that aired.

      • A scene was cut with Barbara working out while she's paralyzed.

      • Barbara and Wade are breaking up after a six month relationship because Barbara is afraid he is getting too close to learning her secret identity. In the aired version, they meet and start dating.

      • In this version, when Helena returns from meeting Reese, she and Barbara argue for a good few minutes about who they are, wearing masks, and about Batman.

      • Background music in most parts belongs to Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker.

      • When Dinah is exploring the docks, and asks Barbara "you've been here before", the sound effects of animals is from the computer game EverQuest. Hang around in most outdoor zones long enough (try the Commons, or Qeynos Hills) - you'll hear it.

      • The scene between young Dinah and her foster mother is extended, unlike the aired version, this one has them talking more.

      • Unlike most series, the unaired pilot became available online to download, which enabled fans to see what the show was like before it aired.

      • The opening in this pilot does not feature a narration by Alfred, but a news report on television. The scene of Barbara taking a shower is extended and Barbara reaches for the phone to call Helena and she runs to the door fast, other than opening it slow like in the aired version.

      • The unaired pilot featured Sherilyn Fenn as Dr. Harleen Quinzel, but because she was not going to be able to do more appearances, the role had to be recast.

      • The ending scene between Helena and Barbara on the Clocktower balcony is the same, but in the aired version, some shots and angles are changed.
