How do we restore a feature class from a SQL Server database backup?  And more specifically, how do we restore only a child version of that feature class?  Is this crazy difficult or easy?  Any tips or guidance is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

You cannot Restore a single Feature Class from a SQL Server db backup.

You will have to restore the complete backup > Connect to it using ArcGIS Desktop > Connect to the Specific version, whose data you need for that fc > Export out the data to a File gdb > Confirm that the output in the File gdb is exactly what you needed > Load that data in the required gdb
