In case you didn’t know, “Battlestar Galactica” finally returns to the airwaves on April 4th and the network has begun a full court press to make sure everyone knows it’s coming back.

While I had plenty of issues with the last season, everything they’ve shown and talked about for this new season looks great. And since this is the final season of the show, I’m very optimistic that Producers Ronald Moore and David Eick won’t hold anything back and we’ll get the best season yet.

Anyway, in New York City they recently held the upfront presentations to advertisers and Sci-Fi has sent me what they showed. So if you’ve been craving for the return of “Battlestar”….enjoy the footage. And below the clip is info about the specials that air on March 28th to help launch the final season.

The wait is finally over for Battlestar Galactica fans. SCI FI’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series returns for its fourth original season on Friday, March 28 @ 10pm ET/PT with two back-to-back half-hour specials. The first new episode will premiere the following week, Friday, April 4 @ 10pm ET/PT.

Battlestar Galactica: Revealed (10pm) will serve up the essential information on the series’ past three seasons, providing the uninitiated with an introduction to the characters, relationships and spine-tingling drama that have captured the imagination of audiences around the world. Galactica’s executive producers, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick serve as guides, providing insights and revelations about the critically-acclaimed series.

Battlestar Galactica: The Phenomenon (10:30pm) is a celebrity-studded celebration of the show’s impact on pop culture. Interviewees, including Seth Green, country music’s Top Male Vocalist of 2007 Brad Paisley, and The Soup’s Joel McHale, and others, wax poetic about why Battlestar Galactica is one of the best frakkin’ shows on television.

As season 4 opens, the last remnants of humanity continue their search for a new home, the thin line that separates them from the rapidly evolving Cylons is being redrawn. Galactica’s crew, rocked by Starbuck’s sudden and mysterious return from the dead – and her claims that she has been to Earth and can lead them there – attempts to make sense of the inexplicable. Meanwhile, four members of the fleet are still reeling from the revelation that they are Cylons and have been all along.
