One of the biggest challenges about approving episodic stills for this episode was actually finding non-spoilers photographs to sign off on.  I don’t recall how many finally made the cut but I do recall it was significantly fewer than previous episodes.  Such is the life of a producer on a heavily-serialized science fiction series – especially when it comes to AU episodes.

So, to make up for the lack of official promotional photos, I thought I’d post some of the behind-the-scenes photos I snapped during the production of this episode – directed by Andy Mikita, written by yours truly.

  1. You’re so right about this week’s episode not having many images released. There are only 2 official press photos for this one, which makes your shared pictures even more appreciated!

  2. Hmmm…unusual in the first picture…the windows are closed? Either pre-CGI of space or they are concealing themselves. Or I may be wrong and it’s something else totally. LOL

  3. Great pics! As for the first picture… That’s not our Raza. Our Three lost that vest in prison & the Android is in blue. Also that console looks off a little though I honestly don’t have the bridge memorized. Is it Friday night yet??

    @slyvia: thanks for the DragonCon update

  4. My guest for unusual in the 1st pic would be the android back in her original outfit.

  5. Oow, think I may be ducking out of this a bit early … don’t want any hint of spoilers, as this looks like it’s gonna be a humdinger of an episode!

    …. is that Boxy in the second picture? Darn it! That’s spoilt it now!

  6. Was that a candy bar on the box in front of the ladies? If so, good for them!

  7. Hmmm?. Lets see what we got here:
    An episode written by one of my favorite tv writers
    (plus) +
    Directed by one of my favorite tv directors
    (plus) + A.U – one of my few all time favorite story topics
    (equals) =
    Drea – Jumpin’ up n down
    with overwhelming excitement and anticipation like a small child in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory!

    Dark Matter ~ Because Joe is dangerous!~

    p.s: If you’ve thrown in Wexler as the surprise guest character I may even forgive ya for any and all wrongs past present and future and officially declare you Saint Joe. Touched by the Gods n Kissed by a muse!

  8. Hmmm. Intriguing.

    Once we roll for Burning Man, I’ll end up missing two Fridays, so will be avoiding the blog a bit after we return. Friday night before the Man burns, I will be in the shadowcast for RHPS, I am the Crim! “I would like, if I may …” “You may not!”

  9. We need more scenes in the underbelly this season! I don’t think we’ve seen the BMD even once. And where’s Boxy? Is that him/her/it in the second photo? Talk about bringing characters in and not developing them! 😉

    Seriously, can’t wait for tonight. I’ll have to though, I’ve got tons to do today!

    Good to hear Bubba’s on the mend. Hopefully he’ll be good as new and right as rain.

  10. I know I’m commenting after seeing the episode, but I would have only picked up on the blue outfit for Android. Good catch @Maggie L80 on three’s vest. I had forgotten about that. And OF COURSE Boxy!!! I haven’t seen him so long I forgot about him.
