Yesterday, I dropped by our second stage at Evans Avenue to say goodbye to what was, for the past two years, our home away from home (The Raza standing sets being home of course). Over those two years, it has held sets like the Marauder, the Ishida cruiser, the Hyperion-8 Galactic Super Max, Rook’s lab, the Dwarf Star pod facility, the Ferrous Corp shipyard, space station underbellies, the munitions factory, Sarah’s room, the Zairon transit chamber, the Zairon guest rooms, and others. Had we returned for a fourth season, we would have expanded our footprint here and built a Ferrous Corp lab, some space station interiors, and an alien ship (!). Ah, what could have been. I guess you’ll just have to Imagine Greater. No, wait. Wrong one. It’s A Fan Thing. No, wait. That can’t possibly be right either, can it?
Anyway, a few photos from our little farewell expedition…
Deconstruction has begun. That little hut holds the Ishida bridge. The cleared area once held Sarah’s room and various labs, and before that the Hyperion-8 Super Max.
Ivon Bartok, Rick Fernandez, yours truly, and Frank Consiglio. I’m going to miss these guys.
Taking it out for a final spin.
Brace for impact!
Phew! Disaster averted!
Except for that whole Syfy cancelling us thing.
The Ishida Cruiser – like the cold, empty shell of a syfy programming executive’s soul.
The long view.
You know the party’s over when they pack away the torture chair, cuffs and bits.
