The Season 4.5 DVD set contains an extended cut of "Daybreak" not only as a single episode, but also integrated with new material.
The format of this episode is unusual in that it goes from the recap into the title sequence and then into the first act. Without a teaser, the episode has an extra act. There is also no montage of clips to punctuate the title sequence.
Doc Cottle's first name is revealed to be Sherman.
When in the limo, Baltar says that he forgot Caprica-Six's name. This alludes to the fact that the character was not named by the producers during her time with Baltar, the reasoning being that he simply never cared to learn her name.
Adama grants a release of the imprisoned mutineers. Though Ron Moore has made statements in his podcasts since "Blood on the Scales" about those that participated in the mutiny being placed aboard the prison ship Astral Queen, this makes it confirmed for the first time onscreen.
Originally, the flashback sequences were not written in any chronological order. However, the network thought this would be too confusing for viewers, so director Michael Rymer restructured the scenes in order and inserted them throughout the two episodes.
"Daybreak" was originally written as a two hour finale before the network provided the money for a third hour because Ron Moore felt that two wouldn't be sufficient. Moore did, however, lose a relatively minor battle in that he wanted "Daybreak" to air together as a single three hour episode.
The finale was shot literally next door to the shooting of the pilot episode of Caprica, the prequel TV series to Battlestar Galactica.
Anders: Spins and turns. Angles and curves. The shape of dreams half-remembered. Slip the surly bonds of Earth and touch the face of perfection. A perfect face. Perfect lace. Find the perfect world for the end of Kara Thrace. End of line.
Number One: (seeing Hera's drawing) Dots. Lots and lots and lots of dots. She's clearly very gifted.
Adama: What Baltar said the other day, is it the truth?
Kara: Yeah. I found my body and I burned it on Earth. I don't know what I am.
Adama: I have to ask him a question. Do you know how to plug him in?
Adama: Hey. I know what you are. You're my daughter. Don't forget it.
