Edward James Olmos states: "When Battlestar fans see The Plan, they’re all going to have to go back and watch the entire series again."
Tricia Helfer states that the disappearance of Shelly Godfrey in "Six Degrees of Separation" will be explained, and that the main viewpoint characters are John Cavil and Sam Anders.
IGN reports scenes including Aaron Doral preparing for the suicide bombing seen in "Litmus", Anders in a Cylon resurrection chamber, and Cavil berating Boomer for failing to kill William Adama in "Kobol's Last Gleaming". In addition to Shelly Godfrey, there is a dark-haired Six, called "Tough Six" in the script.
A sneak peek was made available by Syfy on June 12, 2009, showing Cavil and Ellen Tigh during the events of "33".
On October 10, 2009, the Battlestar Galactica DVD website was updated with a photo gallery and three clips from the movie, as well as information on the DVD features, showing that the uncut runtime is 112 minutes. The first clip shows Cavil, Leoben Conoy, Doral, Godfrey, and "Tough Six" meeting in the refugee fleet under the pretense of a group prayer session, to discuss their plan for eliminating the survivors. The second clip shows the nuclear attack on the Twelve Colonies and the Hybrid reporting on it to the Cylons in their Baseship. The third clip shows Cavil and Boomer discussing the botched assassination attempt on Adama.
On October 16, 2009, the Latino Review published an online review of the DVD and Blu-Ray of The Plan, with several pictures from the movie included. They report that the movie begins during Part II of "Lay Down Your Burdens", with Caprica Cavil and Galactica Cavil due to be airlocked, then flashes back to tell their stories up to this point, starting two days before the Cylon Attack. The attack itself is shown in detail. While the Cavil on Galactica is committed to the destruction of humanity, there is a sympathetic Simon on Galactica with a human wife and adopted daughter. On Caprica, Anders' resistance group is infiltrated by a Cavil and a Simon, but the Cavil has second thoughts about the genocide (in reverse of the situation on Galactica). The review also states that "Tough Six" sleeps with Galactica Cavil, that Boomer's elephant figurines were used as a trigger to switch her into sleeper agent mode, and that Leoben paints the same image as the mandala in the Temple of Five and the paintings in Starbuck's apartment.
