Brief Synopsis:
These are two minor fanedits from episodes of the original Battlestar Galactica television series. They’re minor because there was not a lot of stuff that the faneditor wanted to change in those as they are both pretty solid episodes.
Intention:
Tweak two episodes of the original BSG series.
Release Information:
DVD
Special Features
BSG Destiny’s End trailer (which kind of gives an alternate version to their finding Earth)
Cuts and Additions:
Gun on Ice Planet Zero:

- Added in some deleted scenes from the series DVD set.
- New shot of 3 raiders flying over clouds as they approach Kree.
- Raiders firing lasers while forcing his fighter down.
- Newly created shot of Starbuck and Boomer flying over clouds to take out repeated shot.
- Newly created shot of Killian’s fighter being destroyed to take out repeated shot.
- Shot of Raider exploding over snowy terrain when Starbuck shoots it with the Landram Turret.
- Energy effect around Kree when he is connected to the Mind Probe.
- Edited in different shots during the cylon fighers’ attack on the fleet. However this was a cheat on my part as they are lifted from the Saga re-edit.
- New and alternate shots of the pulsar firing through and around the fleet.
- Added laser blasts from the blasters and Cylon rifles during the attack on the pulsar and garrison.

War of the Gods

- Revised to show only 4 (correct number) of Vipers in openind scene.
- New shots of light ships (the glowing balls) to take out repeated shots.
- Shot of Viper being taken out of space with energy bolt by the large ship of lights.
- Added some deleted scenes from DVD
- Changed colors on scoreboard after Triad where Boomer’s team wins to show Green for his and Red for Apollo/Starbuck.
- Added more of a glowing light beaming effect for the interior of the Ship of Lights.
- Added a devilish figure (taken from Iblis’ devil image) inside the wreckage when Apollo looks in.

I've been fortunate enough to see all of DKerin's BSG Fanedits, and they are top notch. This is the way Galactica was originally intended. The intent originally was for BSG to be shown as TV Movies, longer format instead of episodic. When ABC changed their minds, the producers were forced to come up with additional scripts quickly, which led to some uneven quality. These edits fix that and keep the story focused and tight. Well done.

I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
