FireFly on BSG
« on: September 12, 2005, 03:15:52 AM »
This is weird, but I've got my suspicions.  Basically, I was re-watching my taped copy of the BSG mini-series and I noticed something.  In the scene when Rosalin is meeting with her doctor, who tells her about the cancer, just as the scene begins, you can see a few ships flying past in the window.  As the camera pans down, you can see one ship pass briefly through the extreme left side of the screen.  I watched it and re-watched it, and confirmed, that it was a Firefly class transport, from the series by the same name!  I have a theory.  I noticed, the very first time I watched the mini-series, that the space shots are done in the same style as those in the Firefly series.  I could be wrong, but I think it might even be the same design team.  Instead of the usual, graceful, cinematic shots that most Sci-Fi series have, both these series have often poorly framed, zooming, out-of-focus images, as though someone was hanging outside with a camcorder filming it.  If this theory is correct, then perhaps the team added it in as a sort-of easter egg.  Take a look for yourself.

Kool, perhaps ZOIC did some work for them too or are fans of that space western. I still have trouble adjusting to the western format, but I have been watching it ever since it began airing on Scifi Fridays.

Ooooooooooooooooold news guys.  It is the Serenity model.  Zoic is the firm that did the Firefly FX as well as shots for Buffy and Angel.  The HP "Picture book" comercials are done by them as well.

So I WAS right.  I guess we know what happens to Serenity in the end... she gets sent back in time and accross countless lightyears to the Twelve Colonies, where she is eventually nuked out of existance by the Cylons.  :lol:
