Talk:Zephyr

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Shouldn't we call the Space Park something more Galactica like. This ship could be the Rising Star even with Libran registry. it could've been in orbit around Picon during the attacks? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CoreyDanian (talk • contribs).

If the "Rising Star" resembles the TOS version, it would look nothing like the Space Park. In any case, we've had no indication that they are the same ship - remember, it's a big fleet. --Peter Farago 19:37, 2 October 2006 (CDT)
You never know, Peter. But I believe that that is the Rising Star.--CoreyDanian 3 October 2006
Do you have a source on that? --Peter Farago 22:43, 2 October 2006 (CDT)
Nop. Just intuition.--CoreyDanian
Unfortunately, intuition isn't enough for us here. You might want to give BW:CITE a read. --Peter Farago 01:21, 3 October 2006 (CDT)
Space Park has been the term used on all official sources, SciFi website, Sky One profiles and i belive the companion books. Giving it a name without an official source would be pure speculation --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 03:11, 3 October 2006 (CDT)
The first of the Face of the Enemy webisodes seems to be implying that the Space Park is actually the oft-mentioned Zephyr. That Raptor is pointed right at it in the effects shot.-- David cgc 18:26, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

How sure are we of some of the info presented here?

A lot of the stuff about the Space Park being of an older design - utilized before artificial gravity became readily available - comes from the Sci-Fi website and hasn't been proven on screen or in dialog (not to mention that the ship looks way too advanced to be of an old design). As is the notion that it was a military vessel converted to civilian use. Should we perhaps remove this information? Really, it's just speculation. -- Helo87

I've never really been fond of information from SciFi's website... However, they are an official website, but it should really be cited. If we can't find the older version of the site via the Wayback Machine, then we should really remove the information, I think. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 21:30, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
The site isn't that reliable, but I think it's worth noting. However, we could make an own section at the end of the article for the SciFi information, and not mix it with the on-screen stuff. -- Serenity 21:34, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Possible Repair by Guess What's Coming To Dinner?

I noticed several times in Guess What's Coming To Dinner? that the ring on the Space Park was repaired and twice I saw it spining. Should we make a note of it here and in the episode. --Corey Danian 1.10 Wednesday May 21 2008 (CST)

This is confirmed by Sometimes a Great Notion and A Disquiet Follows My Soul where its spinning again. Shan 14:12, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Face the Enemy Webisode: Merge with Zephyr?

In the first 4.5 season webisode, it's clear that the ship that they are heading to for R&R is the Space Park. They call it the Zephyr, a previously mentioned but unseen ship. I think it's time to merger the two articles. --The Dirt 11.20 Friday December 12 2008 (MDT)

Yes, the ring ship/"Space Park" is called Zephyr. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 19:47, 12 December 2008 (UTC)


Ship size values

How sure are we of the size values listed on the site? I have ortographic renders of the ship and if the length is indeed 1219,2m then the height/width of the ring section comes out at approximately 670m, which is almost double the figure this site has listed (381m - impossible at current ratios). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Newman (talk • contribs).

The values came from the old Scifi Channel website, and were (likely) handed to them by the production. As to whether they make sense or not... that's another discussion. We'll need to note the logic error. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 17:26, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
