BSG: The Return To New Caprica Part 3
The Battlestar Galactica and Rebel Cylon Baseship in orbit around the planet New Caprica.
About this creation






Parrington Levopolis gently floats in a remote cove along the ocean. It's a place that is both familiar to him and foreign at the same time. As a young man, before his success as an inventor and ruthless business leader, he would often come to this place to think about his future.












But how he suddenly arrived here from the orbit of a distant planet known as New Caprica is unclear. The question is not nearly as important as the peaceful motion of the waves, and the warmth of the sunlight on his face.













He thinks back to some of his earliest memories, just after the War. Following the death of his parents, he had to fend for himself anyway he could.













His fishing skills sustained him, but his wits were his most valuable asset.













Grocer: "What ya catch today, Big Guy?"














Levopolis: "Hi, Mr. Petrunish. Just a catfish, but he should fry up real nice."














Petrunish: "G-day, Gentlemen."
Thug: "Whatever, old man."














Thug: "Whoa, check out that kid's fish!"
Sidekick: "Tasty!"















Levopolis, under his breath: "Loosers..."















Thug: "What was that?"















Levopolis: "I wasn't talking to you, bugger off!"













Thug: "Is this kid for real? Looks like we're having fish for lunch. Hand it over you little snot."
Sidekick: "This should be good..."














Grocer: "I'm not sure if that's such a wise idea, Mate..."




























Levopolis: "I said bugger off!"













Whack!
Sidekick: "Holy mother of...!"













Thug: "My eye! It's on the ground!"













Sidekick: "I'm not picking it up, Mate."















Levopolis: "And don't come back! This is MY neighborhood!"















Petrunish: "I warned them... Hey anytime you need any help, anything I can do, just let me know, right?"















Levopolis: "You know, Mr. P, I might just take you up on that, G-day!"


















Galactica in orbit around New Caprica. The Raptors have returned, shaken by the sudden kidnapping of Levopolis.
CMDR L. Barto and LTCMDR Garry King proceed to the CIC to discuss the situation with CMDR Nempec and Col Watchko.














Nempec: "Okay, so what happened out there?"













Maverick: "Apparently Skipper, the thing was buried in the debris, fired up, and went right for Levopolis. Almost like it knew he was going to be there..."














Watchko: "If that isn't a load of crap, that Bones is full of it!"















King: "I don't think so, Colonel. It's not unreasonable for it to have monitored our communications, figured out it wanted a hostage, and made the most of an opportunity."















Mav: "And once it jumped, there's no way to track it, even the Cylons can't do that. Even if we trusted them, and as far as I'm concerned, I think we should call it quits with this Alliance thing..."














Nempec: "I see no evidence that they had any previous knowledge of the unknown hostiles, but I want some better answers. Comm, send a message to our Cylon companions that we request all information that they acquired during the battle and recon mission."














Communications Officer: "Sending it now, Sir..."















Watchko: "So, what if they blow us off? Pretend like they have no fraking idea what we're talking about?"















Nempec: "Mr. Shraga, set Condition One..."















Shraga: "Aye, Sir!"















Nempec: "Mav, prepare you team, I think it's time we paid our Chrome Plated pals over there a little visit."






















Such vivid memories of something that happened so long ago do not remove him from the tranquil water. Feeling heavier and heavier, the sun begins to set, and no longer warms his face. He struggles to remember more of that day, and the significance of all the little details, Mr. Petrunish's store, the city, the anchor he used as a weapon.













"What owl?" he asks himself. "Downtown?" It made no sense to him what difference it made.














All he can feel now is the slow sinking beneath the surface as the sun continues to fade.
















The serenity where he had started the journey through his memory is becoming less peaceful, less familiar, and more of a dark and alien environment. A place he wants to escape.















Voice: "The Subject is exhibiting an unpredicted reaction..."
Second Voice: "This was considered, but his understanding is the basis of the problem, not his compliance. He is unaware."














"A solution will be found..."














"So Say we all!"

Quoting clayton Marchetti I love how you built the cylons ! And these black models look ominous . I really like the flashback to the fight in the street. The name Peturnish reminds me of something but I can't put my finger on it . I hope the cylons don't probe mr. L
There was an episode where they put Baltar in a sensory deprivation tank, so that's kind of shat I was up to here. No probing in this show!

Quoting Dave Kaleta Bart, Plot twist! Great atmosphere in this one. Love the reflections in the water and the forced perspective in the flashbacks. ~DK
The Levo-in-the-tank scene took all day as the sun moved overhead. Kind of a mix of scenes from the show, Lee floating back on Caprica, and Baltar in the tank. The city was a fun one, too, never did anything quite like it.

Thanks, this was a fun one! I kept that little micro city scape, although no idea if I'll use it again. None of those photos were doctored, just some selective cropping, believe it or not. You're a fast reader!

Quoting Paul Romano So many great bits in this episode! The water scenes are perfectly done; often times, LEGO looks out of scale with real-life nature, but you definitely have a knack for blending the two together! And the bit of backstory with Levopolis! Wonderful forced-perspective work!
I had a lot of fun with this one. I had the pond set up on my back porch all afternoon, and kept taking pics as the sun progressed overhead and then set. Glad you enjoyed it!

Kind of an artsy episode. Reminiscent of the episode where they attack the Resurrection Ship, Lee ejects and imagines himself floating...Anyway...Thanks for the comment!

Quoting Tom Simon Thanks dude. I have no idea how I won my category (other than I must give better BJs than Thorsten, at least as far as Chris is concerned. And this despite Thorsten's vast experience! I must be a natural.) However, I can sure see how you won your category. I'll try not to be a stranger, but I'm burrying myself in the next mind numbing section of code in my game. Later.
Don't sell yourself short, Chief! You've got a lot of great stuff, and your subtle sense of humor really adds a lot! Enjoy your victory! And thanks again for the comment.

Quoting Tom Simon The skyline is really nice, Bart. It's a popular category of builds, but I don't remember one as convincing and eye catching. Also like the Cylon probing station. But what gives with the no heads up? Do I have to eventually catch these on Netflix? (I wasn't going to vote in the MOCies cause I don't have time to review the nominees, but now I feel obliged to drop Chris a quickie about this series, whatever category it's in).
Thought I sent a reminder when I left you a comment about the nominations. Anyway, might as well vote for yourself, too, right? Thanks for the comment, I was quite pleased with how that skyline turned out, and I've kept the components, just in case I need to revisit it, maybe from a different angle. Good luck in the MOCies, Chief!

Okay, this is my third reply, I think it's a word in your comment. Anyway, BSG was a show in the late 70s created to meet the demand after Star Wars. Then in 2003 Sci Fi Channel made a Reimagined Series, with a lot more talent behind it. You should watch the miniseries, I bet you'll dig it. Thanks again for the thoughtful comment!

Thanks, Aidan! All those shots were taken without any photoshop trickery. All done on my dining room table. We have a big picture window with a honeycomb shade that acts like a diffuser. The water shots were on my porch over the course of an entire afternoon and into the evening. Glad you enjoyed the show!

I like your way of storytelling already more than Leda´s! (And she is quite good) ~Cheers, Marc

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Good, Better, Barto. Though I still haven't watched any of the new BSG tv series, I'm not sure anymore if I still want to. What if those episodes aren't as good as yours? Needless to mention the beautiful microscale background, other did it before me and they're right. When you plan a new episode, do you write it down first, I mean the dialogue and the settings and all, like in a movie script? Or do you start shooting with just a concept in mind?
Thank you my friend for the kind words! Well, as far as organizing, I kind of do all of those things you mentioned at the same time. I've written scenes before building the sets. Sometimes I take the pictures with all the characters, and the dialogue comes to mind later, almost like an improv. But I take a ton of pictures trying to anticipate not only the current episode, but future ones because it can be a pain to haul out a set like the CIC or hangar deck, and rig the lighting and all that. But a lot of the time I'm winging it, for example the Black Cylon saying "So say we all." In my mind, that's kind of a huge plot twist. They want to know about the owl, what was all that about? I have no idea! Thanks again, Chief!
