This gallery shows the first part of storyboard art that Carl Aldana made for Battlestar Galactica's pilot "Saga of a Star World". They're based on an early version of the pilot script where Apollo was still named Skyler (and had a beard). This part shows the further chase of Apollo and Zac by thre Cylons which ends in the destruction of Zac's viper. Scene 96 shows Adama watching his son getting killed. Fighters are lanched to defend the Galactica.
This gallery shows multiple sketches Carl Aldana made for various scenes in Battlestar Galactica's pilot "Saga of a Star World". It gives good insight in how these storboards were created. The final storyboards as used can be found in the Storyboards of "Saga of a Star World" Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 articles.
The images below show a strange sketched version of scene 49. Carl Aldana's version shows Ovions closing in on Zac, rather than Cylons. Maybe at the time Carl Aldana was sketching, reptilian versions of the Cylons were still discussed and he mixed them up with the look of the Ovion (as originally designed by Ralph McQuarrie, Joe Johnston, Dan Goozee and modelled by Phil Tippett, see The History of the Ovions costume). Since these Ovions resemble the look as Dan Goozee sketched them we will assume it was a mistake on the end of Carl Aldana (also since he later does sketch the robotic Cylons as we know them from the final storyboards).
