Visitor On 'Battlestar Galactica'

Nana Visitor found the sets of the two science-fiction shows to be very different, one being darker and grittier than the other.

As reported by SyFy Portal, according to Visitor, speaking to fans at the recent Vulkon held in Orlando, Florida last weekend, the BSG set was a real rough set. "You felt the world of 'Battlestar Galactica' being very rough, and every set was dark, and it was tough," she said. "It was a whole different atmosphere."

The sets of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine seemed very different to Visitor. "Our show [Deep Space Nine] had three huge soundstages that you walked in one door and you were in the world, and there were real doors," said Visitor. "It was like Disney World as opposed to Disneyland. There was no scale. It was what it looked like."

Visitor spoke too of the potential Screen Actors Guild strike and the reasons behind it. "The strike is really about the computer, and very much about the Internet. TiVO and things like that make you be able to skip over commercials." She explained that this has led advertisers to try to become more creative in getting visibility for their products, including such things as product placements in shows. "There is a huge confusion with all that and how it all works, and I don't know what to say," said Visitor. "It's very hard to do drama and have to say, 'Come on, Johnny. Drink this orange juice because it has 100 percent ...' It kind of takes you out."
