"All hesitation and doubt must be burned away, until all that remains is the honed edge of a living human weapon."
It's what the Colonial veterans call a "razor."
This sums up what Battlestar Galactica: Razor is all about. On the eve of a Cylon attack, Lt. Kendra Shaw reports for duty on the battlestar Pegasus. Mankind's future is forever changed after the Cylon's genocidal siege of the Twelve Colonies.
Under guidance from her commander, Admiral Helena Cain, Shaw is "reshaped" into a razor using suicidal battle tactics and brutal war crimes against her own people.
The two-hour movie Razor follows the untold story of the battlestar Pegasus, providing clues to the fate of humanity and serving as a backdrop for season four of Battlestar Galactica.
