An early version of the script had the twelve colonies as cities on the mother planet Kobol, not separate planets and moons all colonized from Kobol (as it is in the final version).

The floor of the starboard landing bay during the decommissioning ceremony changes from the standard runway in wide shots to the red walkway lines of the hangar bay.

During the first scene on Galactica, when the camera follows Starbuck through the halls, a man she passes makes room for her and can clearly be seen looking towards the camera crew and waiting an extra moment for them to pass, even when Starbuck is well out of the way.

Just as Boomer brings in the fuel ship to the civilian fleet, there is a brief external view (at around 1h 55 mins) which shows three Viper Mk VII's flying in formation from right to left. The only Viper available was Apollo's, and it was disabled in the cargo bay of Colonial One.

Quotes
Adama: This is the Commander. Moments ago, this ship received word of a Cylon attack against our homeworlds is under way. We do not know the size or the disposition or the strength of the enemy forces, but all indications point to a massive assault against Colonial defenses. Admiral Nagala has taken personal command of the Fleet aboard the battlestar Atlantia following the complete destruction of Picon Fleet Headquarters in the first wave of the attacks. "How? Why?" doesn't really matter now. What does matter is that as of this moment, we are at war. You've trained for this. You're ready for this. Stand to your duties, trust your fellow shipmates, and we'll all get through this. Further updates as we get them. Thank you.

Starbuck: You sure they'll fly?

Aaron Doral: [the Cylons cut through the doors to Ragnar Anchorage, and a crowd of humanoid Cylon copies walk through to find the Doral-copy Adama stranded there] We have to get out of this storm. The radiation affects our silica relays.

Q
Are the Twelve Colonies all in one Solar System?
A
It is never made absolutely clear in the series, though the subject has been alluded to.The following is from the BSG Role Playing Game, which is an official product:"The Twelve Colonies spun around a single star on elliptical orbits. Closest to the sun was sweltering, volcanic Canceron, the greatest source of tylium in the system. Next came a Trojan orbit of planets -- three worlds following the same orbital path, seperated by roughly the same distance (one-sixth the orbit's diameter). In order, these planets were Aquaria, Caprica, and Virgon. They were centers of art, culture, and system-wide trade. Two gas giants followed, each in its own elliptical path and each itself orbited by a number of moons. The first of these behemoths was Zeus, named after the king of the gods, and it's moons were Leonis, Picon, and Scorpia. Another large planet named Aerelon shared Zeus' orbit, positioned exactly opposite the giant. The second gas giant was Hera and her charges were Gemenon and Libris, with Sagittaron likewise spinning opposite. These giants and their moons were the heart of the system. This real estate was the most heavily contested during the colonies' many civil wars. At the outermost edge of the system dwelled Tauron, followed by a third gas giant named Ragnar. Tauron was the first world settled after the fall of Kobol. It was the springboard for all expansion in the system."However, in the TV movie Battlestar Galactica: The Plan (2009) (which is obviously higher canon than a role-playing game), the Cylon Hybrid is talking about twelve targets around three stars as the Cylons are about to launch their attack on the Colonies. This suggests that the Colonies are in a trinary star system.http://galactica.wikia.com/wiki/File:Twelve_Colonies_Map.jpgScriptwriter Jane Espensen, who was a prominent writer and producer for both Battlestar Galactica and its spin-off Caprica, helped to develop a map of the 12 Colonies, that was situated in a quadruple star system called Cyrannus. Espensen has stated that this newer map was "quasi-canon" and was created mainly for production purposes and was subject to future revision.http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Battlestar_Galactica_Map_of_the_12_Colonies
