This week’s episode of Battlestar Galactica, “Faith,” is the conclusion of the cliffhanger episode from last week “The Road Less Traveled.” And it includes a special Trek Guest Star (Nana Visitor aka DS9’s Kira Nerys). We have more details, preview videos, and vids with three different BSG stars, and Caprica casting news and some frakkin links, so check it out.
Airing tonight, May 9th at 10 PM (9 Central)
“Faith” [Season 4 Ep. 6]
Synopsis: The dying President Roslin and the aggressive Viper pilot Kara Thrace try to accept the new terms of the relationship with the Cylons.
Visitor plays Emily Kowlski, a fellow cancer-patient with President Roslin. Apparently she will be a fan of Baltar’s crazy radio program, but ends up striking a friendship with Roslin.

The cast for the BSG prequel Caprica is beginning to take shape. Esai Morales (Jericho) will play Joseph Adama (father of Adm. Bill Adama). The character is described as “a deeply passionate man with a strong sense of justice — and someone you wouldn’t want as your enemy. And Paula Malcomson (Deadwood) has been cast as Amanda, “a surgeon who works as a double agent.” [THR]

A NOTE ON COMMENTS
The comments section below is for the majority of Trek fans who are also BSG fans. It is to discuss the series, the week’s episode and anything else related to the preview article above. If you are not a fan of the show, then why are you even reading this far down into this post? There are plenty of Trek stories so just move on. Any flaming of BSG will be considered trolling.
