Mojo, who does effects for Battlestar Galactica, has just written a really cool blow-by-blow analysis of how the effects team put together one of the most exciting scenes in last week's episode. Spoilers ahead . . .
Unfortunately, one of the most exciting parts got cut, for time reasons. When the humans running the captured cylon Base Ship jump into the fleet, they find themselves stranded and alone, at the mercy of a human fleet that doesn't realize the ship is no longer an enemy. In this cut scene, you can see the intensity of the Base Ship arrival, smack dab in the middle of the fleet, with dozens of ships on a collision course with it. Really shows the chaos of their arrival, and shows off a bunch of spaceships, which is always cool. Hopefully this clip will make it onto the DVD extras. You can find out a lot more about the making of the scene on Mojo's blog. [Guess What's Not Coming to Dinner via Darth Mojo]
