The Sci-Fi Channel is empathetic to the Battlestar withdrawal you’ve been suffering through this last year or so…although perhaps not to the fact that it’s by their doing.  Nevertheless, they’re throwing you a bone as has revealed that 10 new webisodes are slated to begin premiering December 12th with “The Face of the Enemy.”  Following the standard format of previous webisodes, “The Face of the Enemy” and the others will run between three and four minutes and elaborate on characters and situations from Season 4.

“Enemy” centers around Gaeta (Allessandro Juliani), a Number 8 (Grace Park) and several others who are trapped in a stranded raptor and who become paranoid with one another and panicking as the passengers start dying mysteriously.  Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan) and Lt. Hoshi (Brad Dryborough) co-star.  “Enemy” is written by Jane Espenson and Seamus Kevin Fahey.
