‘Battlestar Galactica': Exclusive photos from the set of ‘Sometimes a Great Notion’

Jan. 20, 2009 | 7:32 p.m.

The first of the final 10 episodes of "Battlestar Galactica" aired last Friday with huge revelations and some shocking developments (not least among them the naming of the Fifth Cylon, who we got the exclusive interview with here at Hero Complex).

The episode was directed by Michael Nankin who earlier sent us a nice gallery of behind-the-scenes photos from Season 2 of "BSG" and now he has given us some more set photos, these all from the Vancouver shoot of Friday night’s "Sometimes a Great Notion" episode. The captions are from Nankin and all of the shots were from the camera of Paul Sanchez Yates.

In this photo, actor Michael Hogan (Col. Saul Tigh) wades into 35-degree water for the big final scene:

More photos …

On the Ruined Earth set. Ryan McMaster, camera operator, is on the far left. James Callis (Dr. Gaius Baltar), is at the center at the water’s edge:

A group of schoolchildren wandered onto the set and they were greeted by Katee, who was plainly happy to see them:

Two directors, no waiting. That’s me, Michael Nankin, sitting, as well as Michael Rymer, who is standing.  In the flight suit is Tahmoh Penikett (Lt. Karl "Helo" Agathon) and in the hat is Edward James Olmos (Admiral Adama) on location:
