The Ovion speaks with a Cylon ("Saga of a Star World" / "Battlestar Galactica: The Movie")

How's this for nit-picking?

Battlestar Galactica: The Movie vs. Battlestar Galactica ("Saga of a Star World") TV Pilot.  Has anyone taken a close look at the scene between the Ovion and the Cylon?  In the Movie Version, the Ovion language has onscreen captions while in the TV version, their language is NOT captioned.  I wonder why this change was made?  Is the lack of onscreen captions on the TV version intentional or was it an editing error?  Photos of both versions of this scene below:
