BSG on Location for the FinaleJuly 2, 2008
It’s an exciting time to be a member of the 13th Colony, but also, quite frankly, nerve-wracking. I don’t want to know how it ends until I see the last episode as it airs on TV. I know that means I have to be diligent for the next six months (or more) to avoid spoilers. Today, a friend sent pictures from today’s Battlestar Galactica location shoot. With just one more week scheduled for shooting, these pictures represent filming of the series finale.
So, I’m going to pass along a few. Spoilers are minor, but intriguing. And since people are sensitive about such things, they are hidden behind a cut.
They’re shooting new material set on Caprica. Past, present or future — unknown. The first picture is a shot from the 2003 miniseries, setting up the market on Caprica where Six kills the baby. It is also the same location featured in “Epiphanies” where Laura takes a walk to talk about the teacher’s strike. Note the rock and spheres in the water, which are not normally present. The picture below it is from today’s shoot at the reflecting pool in the Academic Quadrangle at Simon Fraser University.
Laura is at the pool once again, and she isn’t wearing a very presidential outfit. It’s a low cut one piece jumper with cropped pants, with a long, light jacket. She is barefoot.
For some reason, there are several futuristic baby carriages. Three in different colours on set. No visible babies, but since shooting with infants is problematic, they could be inserted digitally later. There were several children among the background performers.
A complete set of pictures is located here. Once again, we’re providing these without watermarks so fans can share them, but if you do, please attribute them to The 13th Colony and link back to our blog. Thank you.
