^Those are civilian ships. They appear to be of the same design as Colonial One.
Look at all those cool buildings. I wonder what the tall pointy one in the background is for.
Frakking Gods dammit I can't wait for Caprica.
Well they are the same design... Colonial One is really an Intersun Liner, so these are others just like it... the Colonial version of an airline. I liked that we saw them in the shot... it was a nice touch.
I'm sure we'll see some spaceships in Caprica.
I think that's the whole point of Daybreak, Pt 1 - to get people ready for Caprica and not finish the show like we want them too.
Well of course that was a big part of the whole point... so? What is everyone complaining about? What do you think Caprica is going to be?
This is what it's going to be... a land-based drama series, that happens to just be set in the BSG universe, which means background dressing like starships and paper with the corners cut off.
I don't get why people are complaining that we're seeing this stuff in BSG. It fits.
Just an FYI, galacticabbs.com (galactica.com) has Screen Caps for everything BSG (old and new) and is the best source on the web for screen caps. Check it out here:
We will also be doing Caprica screen caps when that show comes on.
Yes, but the fact remains that if they don't have zoning ordinances against huge, FTL-capable, tylium-fueled spaceships operating right next door to office buildings, then it's no wonder they were dumb enough to be beaten by Cylons.
Right, like how coastal docks in the real world frequently dock nuclear-powered subs and aircraft carriers? Nothing different.
Nuclear powered subs don't fly, create huge amounts of terrestrial noise and vibration, or run the risk of plowing into a building.
I thought I heard of something that does that... weird metal bird... carry jet fuel...
Oh yeah. Airplanes.
Dear Gods. Did I somehow take a wrong turn into the Trek XI forum?
Caprica takes place 50 years prior to this. A lot of those buildings might not even be there then. (might not be any spaceships, either...)
THE ENTERPRISE WAS BUILT IN SPACE LIEK OMG TRAVESTY!12121221
Ron Moore just raped my childhood
THE BUILDINGS ARE 10 TIMES TOO TALL!!!
I live across the bay from Caprica City, and I plan to post a video on ColonialTube showing how this is all wrong...
Sorry, I've been spending too much time in the Trek XI forum.
Edit: Oh hai, Gep Malakai, didn't see you there...
Battlestar wiki has 2 more pics of Caprica City from the same scene. I've stolen them and put them up here for you to see.
Is that Chinese writing on the buiding in the first shot?
Those buildings are really sweet! I love the style, contemporary, yet futuristic.
Still fascinated by the tall, spire-like tower in the background. Maybe it's Graystone's HQ?
Those first four "kanji" under the "C" sort of look like it...
But the fifth, 1.5-unit-high one looks Tholian/Vulcan (i.e. non-Chinese/Japanese) or something...?
Sure. Lots of downtown urban areas have airports.
^I see no difference between placing a spaceport on your coast and putting this in Queens.
At least Battlestar Galactica's spacecraft can take-off vertically.
