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 destruction of the battlestar Atlantia, the attack on Caprica and the Exodus of the Colonies. Also some sketches for the Daggit and Ovion costume are added to this gallery.
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.

Interesting is the sketch below that Carl Aldana made for the Daggit. It shows a more "agressive" version than the one we now know. Neither Ralph McQuarrie or Joe Johnston ever drew the Daggit like this and it's unknown if this is a personal vision on the Daggit; maybe simply because designs for the costume by McQuarrie or Johnston weren't made at that point.
