Scorpio and Xenon base looked good as well, particularly the takeoffs from the silo.


Just after Avon says 'It just got too damn expensive' five minutes into 'Games' Scorpio is seen on a rotating launch pad. It's possibly the best spacecraft scene there is.

I have to say, I like a lot of the look of Series 4. Mainly because the costumes and props and Scorpio's interior look a lot more, well, realistic. It's certainly a change from the multi-coloured, psychedlic wardrobes and interiors we saw aboar The Liberator.

I think by series 4 the space flight shots of Scorpio were consitantly very good rather than the sometimes excelent, sometimes wobbly Liberator. The much maligned S4 trailer highlights some of the beautiful in flight sequences of the Scorpio, despite the haze caused from the blue screen effects.

So what are the parts of B7 that make you think 'wow that looks good!' ?


The Liberator!

Everytime I see her in Spacefall my jaw drops!


I agree about the Liberator! It's so original and looks amazing. I was really disappointed at the Scorpio flight deck though - so drab and ugly compared to the Liberator (I suppose that was the point, but still...)


I disagree. I've never found the Liberator to be an attractive starship, or at the very least, a warship. It looks like three shampoo bottles glued together with pylons like resemble ice cream sticks. It looks way too fragile to be a convincing warship and it took quite a beating during its encounter with Federation pursuit ships, that its a wonder that it didn't break apart at the seams. It would have been better suited as a diplomatic vessel instead. Granted, Scorpio was no beauty either, but at least it look very real and believeable as a spaceship. And by the way, I thought Scorpio's flight deck was superior to Liberator's too. It look far more futuristic, which is not surprising considering that the show's budget increased somewhat.

Also, by all accounts, the padded chairs on Scorpio's flight deck look at lot more comfortable than the ones aboard The Liberator.

Yeah - but they looked like Cyber Controller Chairs!
