Cylon logo takes shape in Caprica building.

Post by GoldCylon » Fri Apr 17, 2009 7:33 pm

Take a look at the top of the building a haunting start to the Cylon logo on the top of a Caprica building. Is this the Cylon building of birth?

I recently realized that in the new BSG - in the episode where they find the "Temple of the Five" there are short pillers in the room - shapped just like that building.

Its all connected! COOL

The "first Cylon" U-87 (and the classic Razor Cylons) have pentagon shapped bolts too. Look real close and they are there.

I've found this pic where you can see the bolts more clearly:

Yes that is a cool tie-in to the classic show... the Razor "old school" Cylons even had salt and pepper holes in the helmet. But they were there as a knod to classic BSG - there were no actors trying to see out of the holes in the CGI suits :)

Yes, it's they haven't left this detail out... it looks like they've done a quite good job on the research...

*FYI: I edited the first posting here by GoldCylon so the image would show again - had a bad path to the image. Now everyone can see what we are taking about again :)

There's also an imprint of the pentagon on the back of Zoe/Cylon-Alpha's helmet. I love the little things that the producers continue to throw in there to tip the hat to Caprica's roots. These are things that they clearly don't have to do, especially with the tight deadlines they work under, but they still find the time to put in the occasional Easter Egg to tell the hard-core base fandom that they still remember.

Off topic a bit, but your Easter Egg comment. Did you see, or find the Easter Egg in "The Plan"

I remember people talking about it, but the only thing I could find was the fact that the Cylon prototype's "feet" at the very end extended into the rough outline of a battlestar top-view. You can see it here. I think there may be one other thing which I'm looking for now.

Update: Ah HAH! I knew there was something else. Check this out. Looks like a certain mandala painting from a certain cigar-smoking pilot?

^^^ If you're referring to Zoe, then no, that's Alessandra Torresani.
