While you're capping...check out the shot immediately after the launch tube. The big rock in the foreground that's only there for 5 frames or so.

The aircraft on the top of the lid is an F104 Starfighter.  Cheesy.

Nope... Definately a F18. Notice the horizontal stab on the F104 in the picture below and that of the F18 posted earlier. Match them to the screen shots (borrowed from Karl's post). If anything... the stein lids are made of pewter so the prop guys could have modified the topper a bit. It does appear that the wing tips may have been possibly shortened a bit.




Notice the angle of the stabs?


A match for the image on the right.


The F104 has perfectly flat horizontal stabs.






WELL.. That was quick, I posted this LATE last night not expecting to see it solved so soon. Does anyone here have the ability to imprint mugs??? Thanks wuher da brewer... :thumbsup

I thought it looked more like a wok, or the mother ship from "Close Encounters". :lol

Blooper: despite the fact that Starbuck and Kat are both flying Mark VII Vipers, the stock footage launch tube sequence shows a Mark II. :$
:lol

They're at least keeping alive the tradition of massively reusing stock footage of vipers flying and launching like they did in the old series.

That was one of the cheesiest parts of the series... :lol I think they must have shot only one episode of scenes and just reused them over and over, reverse the negative and reuse over and over... :lol



Back OT:

Anyone here print on mugs?

Yeah that's exactly right... big monies were put down to do the original three-hour "TV movie" episode of Galactica ("Saga of a Star World"), and effects were done by the legendary John Dykstra, who had just come off of Star Wars (ANH).

Pretty soon more TV movies were in the works, and suddenly they had a WEEKLY series on their hands... well it was just too much pressure, and not enough money, so they had to just crank it out as best they could... getting by with the same stock footage most of the time, only filming a new shot occasionally for specific needs.

But that was the way it was done back then. Ten years earlier, Star Trek (TOS) had the same problem with lack of time and funds, which is why footage of the pilot version Enterprise (which has many visual differences) is seen every week during the run of the series, mixed up with shots of the "production" miniature. :rolleyes

Yes, thanks.

Maybe this is just me taking a rorschach test, but:





There is even a bump in the rock where the top guns are.


Thanks wackychimp.

CafePress does custom tankards, but not in that style. Isn't it possible to get custom graphics printed via inkjet transfer on a tankard with a compatable surface?

..and the long pointy (vertical) rock behind the Millenium Boulder on first glance resembles a Star Destroyer. ;)

As far as new helmets go.. did the pegasus use the new style helmets. ?

The older helmets probably work on a different frequency and dont use the computer technology with the old systems of the old fighters..I am totally just making that up.. but it sounded good.. ha ha..

outta all the things to spend money on.. they redo the helmets.. its a good sign.. meaning they got a budget..to do that sort of thing..
