It's either going to be summer or 2010; I don't see them interrupting Stargate Universe mid-season for this. And of the two, I'd expect summer would be better; BSG spinoff Caprica may be, but BSG's ratings aren't going to be enough to sustain it; they're going to want to distance it as much as possible, and try to get new people hooked.
I would assume that The Plan will be a Saturday night movie, I'm pretty sure Razor was.

I'm an HD whore; however, this is one of the few shows that doesn't need an HD upgrade. The DVDs look great! My HD-DVD of season 1 does look fantastic; however, given the inherent grain to BSG and the shaky-cam, I don't think it benefited THAT much.

Besides, I have the Future Shop exclusive steelbook versions of seasons 3 and 4.0
I thought the same thing until I saw an episode a few weeks ago in HD,it's amazing! A lot of the time it looked the same, but in places it looks grittier and dirtier and it's really nice.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I guess my PS3 does a "good enough" job upscaling it that although the finer details are clearly absent, it still looks pretty damn good. I believe a large part of it is attributable to the lack of colour in the show. HD definitely benefits those films/shows more that have rich colour pallettes.

Blu-Ray should be easier on the eyes than over-compressed "HD" cable/satellite, when it comes to shaky-cam and action scenes (and action scenes with shaky cam!)

I wonder if the "Complete Series" will include The Plan... It airs in June (probably), right?
Looks like The Plan is supposed to air/come out in the fall, around November. If that's the case, it looks like this won't be a complete set, which makes me less enthusiastic about getting it.
That is something that I haven't even thought about. Technically it wouldn't be the "complete" series. I'm beginning to wonder if this blu-ray release date is just speculation. It does seem like they would want to wait until the entire series is finished out before they do a "complete" series blu-ray set.

Impending movies didn't stop MGM with Stargate: SG-1's complete series set.

Complete series on Blu Ray sounds super sweet but I'm afraid of the price tag.

Well, the two Stargate movies didn't air on Sci-fi until years after their DVD debut. There have been rumors that legally that The Plan would have to air on TV before showing up on DVD to sidestep Larson's rights, but has that actually been confirmed? Or could we have it on disc this summer to air in November (probably Thanksgiving week as last time)?

Yeah you will most likely have to buy that separately, though I imagine it will come out on Blu Ray on the same day as the DVD release and you don't have to worry about Universal reissuing a complete series box set with the Plan.

Update: The Caprica DVD coming out next week has a picture of the complete series box set, along with the July 28th date being confirmed.

Has there been any information as to when we can expect the "Caprica" pilot to be released on DVD in Europe? I've been checking the internet for a while now, but I've found nothing so far.

$245 for the Blu-ray set... I can deal with that.

More than I was hoping for--I'd hoped for the MSRP to be about $250--but it's still only a 10% premium over buying the seasons individually from Amazon, which isn't too bad.
