BSG: Behind The Scenes! . Welcome to the studio! I'm Mav, from the series BSG: The Next Chapter. I'm going to be taking you on a tour of our operation here. .
Mav: "Here are some of the gang from the show, Simon , Corthay , Bonsch , and Bones . We sure had some serious adventures last season, on set, and outside on location!"
Mav: "You may recognize Galactica's CIC set. Commander George Nempec. Both he and Doug are buddies of mine from college, and I roped them into this project."
Nempec: "Yeah, he's always been a scifi nerd..."
Watchko: "And he doesn't pay us squat!"
Mav: "Anyway, here's some of the set from Parrington's quarters on the Cylon Baseship."
Mav: "The Cylon CIC was recently upgraded at the end of the First Season. The producer wasn't all that thrilled with the original."
Mav: "Here we see the two varieties of robotic life forms, the original Centurions, and the ones who captured Levopolis. They usually don't have much to say..."
Mav: "Here's Garry King and some of his robotics department."
King: Toasters Rule!
Mav: "Levopolis' cell on the mysterious alien ship. He's getting prepared to shoot a scene for Season Two."
Levopolis: "I'm a method actor."
Mav: "Here are some of the props from the Colonial Home Worlds, the Triton, and one of the new Vipers!"
Mav: "The Triton's CIC set, Mahan and Dendauw , Kaleta and Fassio in the back. "
Mav: "The set is based on the design of the Galactica CIC, just a smaller scale.
Mahan: I need coffee..."
Mav: "Here we are with Dr. Marcus Korund , chief medical officer aboard the Galactica. How are things, Doc?"
Dr. Korund: "I'm a doctor, not a tour guide..."
Mav: "Anyway, you can see the Med Bay in the background, and our wounded soldier in the Recovery Pod..."
Mav: "Components of my quarters and Nempec's. We just move the walls around and change some of the decorations. It's a lot easier that way..."
Mav: "Alright, now I'm on the FleetLevel, under the Zephyr."
Mav: "This entire level is where all the ships of the Fleet are stored, both Colonial and Cylon."
Mav: "It's not very often the Galactica is brought out for a photo shoot, but when it is, it's fairly easy to move the Fleet out of the way for access."
Mav: "The Cylon ships are kept over here."
Mav: " As you can see: the Base Ship, Resurrection Ship, Raiders, etc."
Mav: "The Galactica takes up almost two thirds the length of this level!"
Mav: "Moving on to the Hangar Deck..."
Mav: "By far the largest set in the studio, and my personal favorite, the Vipers and Raptors are all kept here."
Mav: "This hangar door was just built recently to provide a backdrop for some upcoming scenes in Season Two!"
Mav: "Lt Kuo, Chief Engineer, and my wife in real life. And this is our son, Moose. He often helps with the set lighting, and organizing around the studio."
Moose: "How's it going, Gomers?"
Mav: "A lot of the props here on the Hangar Deck are actually fully functional!"
Mav: "We'll continue the tour out back..."
Mav: "Oh, here's Chrissy Phipson! She's one of the big stars of the show, and gets by far the most fan mail! Getting a little workout in between shoots, Chrissy?"
Chrissy: "Yeah, just toning! Gotta work off all those doughnuts!"
Mav: "Here's the Caprica City Waterfront set."
Mav: "Although it was used only a few times in the show, it's one of the producer's favorites, and I guess he can't bring himself to tear it apart..."
Mav: "Now, our last stop on the tour. We're getting ready to shoot a scene for Season Two! It takes place in the Tactical Briefing Room. It's a variation of the Pilot's Briefing Room from Season One."
Mav: "As you can see, we've got the lighting all rigged up. The cast is running through some of the dialogue, and getting some hair and makeup finishing touches."
Watchko: "Okay, okay..."
Mav: "Well, I hope you've enjoyed the tour! And stay tuned for BSG: The Next Chapter Season Two!"
