Battlestar Galactica Cylon Raider Mock-Up
Written by Marcel Damen

For years these Battlestar Galactica Cylon Raider mock-up photos could be found on Phil Broad's (Cloudster) website. They recorded his studio visits and a unique piece of TV history now lost (both the Cylon Raider mock-up as well as the Cloudster website are now gone). By putting them back up here fans can now continue to enjoy them.

The Battlestar Galactica Cylon Raider never existed as a full scale mock-up, only the cockpit interior was built as a set piece. The cockpit was a fairly simple set with little in the way of instrumentation. Presumably external instrumentation was not really necessary, the ship being operated primarily through a direct ship/crew interface connection. The set did not even feature a separate platform, it was simply built right on the stage floor. The most interesting part of the set was the canopy louver assembly. This was added so shots could be composed looking "in" from "outside" and was built from a bright sheet metal, like stainless steel.
