‘Battlestar,’ the countdown to the end

Jan. 16, 2009 | 1:41 a.m.

The clock is ticking toward the beginning of the end for “Battlestar Galactica,” the best-written sci-fi show in television history. Tomorrow night, the new episode “Sometimes a Great Notion” will premiere, and it has some MAJOR revelations in it that propel the series into its final episodes.

As the credits are rolling tomorrow night on the East Coast broadcast, check back here for a major scoop, and I do mean major. Also, next Monday I’ll be posting a batch of exclusive on-the-set photos that were taken during the filming of “Notion” in Vancouver, Canada. They were sent to me by Michael Nankin, the director of some of the best episodes of “Battlestar,” who earlier this week provided Hero Complex with some great behind-the-scenes photos from the show’s Season Two. I can’t post the newest stuff he sent me because it will undermine some of the drama from tomorrow night’s broadcast — especially the climatic final scene — but there is one photo that Nankin said would be safe to show you now.

Here it is: Paul Sanchez Yates took the photo, which shows a beaming Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) greeting a group of schoolchildren who essentially wandered into production. It’s an endearing moment and, I’m sure, one that was a rare light moment for Sackhoff, considering the heavy moments she has to deal with during this episode…don’t worry, no spoilers here.

    Awww… sweet photo, Geoff. And I'm sure the kids are profoundly thankful that Katee Sackhoff wasn't being all method about staying in character, otherwise things could have gotten nasty. :)

    Sackhoff is such a down to earth person, not allowing stardom get in the way. Amazing actor!

    "Best written"? Season one of the original Star Trek was probably the best written-not only was Roddenberry sitting on a decade of story lines but also legitimate science fiction writers were among those providing scripts.
