    Default Screen shots inside "The Colony"

    I took some screen shots from last night's episode, just to look at. sorry they're so large. Click for bigger.








    The last is my favorite. The return of the original Raider! It looks like in the circle there are both new and Old Raiders. I wonder what that means.

    In the first, if you look middle right-hand-side, you can see a Baseship for size reference. It looks like the baseship itself could fit in that entrance no problem.

    So very cool. Thanks, sircastor!

    Maybe it's just because the design of the Colony is so much for organic and alien than anything we've seen before, but it kind of looks...I dunno, more CGI than what I'm used to seeing on BSG. Everything else seems grounded in a reality we can relate to, even if it is about ships flying through space. But this thing just looks weird, like something you'd see in a video game.

    Not that that's bad, but it feels just a bit out of place. Am I making sense here?

    That first pic almost reminds me of a Shadow ship from Babylon 5. Creepy.

    Holy craaaap! I had to look hard, but I just saw the Baseship in the first pic! That Colony sucker's huge! (I'll restate from my thoughts on another thread that for some reason it reminds me of the squid from Watchmen.)

    Sure is HUGE. Where the frak has it been? What the frak is it - really? The Cylon "home world"?

    Yeah, I thought it was a little more obviously CG than I'm used to with BSG. Part of it's the purple nebula in the background, I think. But not all.
    I also see the B5 similarities too..

    G'Kar: Too easy an answer. We all believe in something... greater than ourselves. Even if it's just the blind forces of chance.

    Without being crass (yeah right -- like somebody's not gonna make some smarta$$ comment on this forum ):

    The trippy thing is that the design of the Colony reminded me of female genitalia... the exterior pic has semi-circles around the entrance that look labial... the pic of the interior tunnel looks like the birth canal. Then the ship descends through a small hole kinda like a cervix.

    Which is all symbolically fitting -- first, it's the birthplace of the S7; second, Hera is traveling down this big-a$$ vagina down through to the Colony's uterus, where Cavil awaits... she being the seed of the new Cylon race.

    Just didn't expect it to be so blatant (or was that just to me? )

    HAHAHAHA brilliant, and very true.

    i want to know y the cylon raiders look so much bigger than the raptor.

    i wonder if its design will come up in the rdm podcast.

    Almost any organic sci-fi ship design ends up looking sexual somehow. The Alien designs by H.R.Giger were supposed to suggest both male and female parts, or so I've heard.

    If this thing can FTL jump, that's gotta be one heck of a spatial distortion when it goes. Judging by the comparison to the Basestar, it's gotta be the size of a small moon. Except for, "That's no moon."

    I just thought they'd somehow gotten Georgia O'Keefe to do the design.

    Default Yeah, I thought it was

    feminine, too. Watchmen, again.

    I don't think this is the Colony--Cavil doesn't know where it is, but I'll buy Cylon Homeworld.
    So, um, if Boomer gets punched in the head is that an attack on the Temple of Athena? Are you Sharon my curiosity about this? I can't stop thinking about it. I'm just Eight up over it. Can't sleep. Maybe I need some Valerii-an root tea.
