More Caprica Location PicsJune 17, 2008
I don’t want to give anyone the impression that the 13th Colony is made up of a bunch of stalkerazzi, but once again, the Caprica production team has chosen to shoot in a public location REALLY CLOSE to where one of us works. Either we’re building quite a network up here, or we’re just getting lucky.
We have more exclusive Caprica set pics today. They could be considered spoilery, so they’re under a cut.
The School of Theology, on the campus of the University of British Columbia, is doubling as the Athena Academy.

The only reference I’ve found so far for the school motto is that “cast aside the temporal” is attributed to Thomas Becket, the 12th century Archbishop of Canterbury who was assassinated in a conflict with the English king over the rights of the church.

This last picture doesn’t clearly show it, but there was a whole troupe of extras sitting outside the Chan Centre during breaks in filming. Most were young people, wearing black. The impression our photographer got was that it was a funeral scene. The interior and exterior of the Chan Centre were previously featured on Battlestar Galactica as part of Cloud Nine, where the the Quorum of the Twelve met in “Colonial Day” to elect a Vice President. The building is also well known to sci-fi fans as the 4400 Centre from “The 4400” and the Mada Corporation head office from “Kyle XY.”
Please note that these pictures are posted for the use of fans, but please attribute them to The 13th Colony and link back to our blog.
