As with Long Neck vessel, this article needs a screenshot and fundamental formatting. --Spencerian 02:08, 3 September 2007 (CDT)

I don't really know what to make of this. The only really yellow thing I see, is a Colonial Movers ship. Maybe it is supposed to be the one on the left in this shot, but that doesn't look particularly yellow. The article also mentions "Black Market" as episode cite. When Apollo lands on Prometheus, there is a Colonial Movers ship directly to the left of it. And it has yellow containers. --Serenity 05:18, 3 September 2007 (CDT)
The colonial movers was what I was thinking of but i dont have the DVDs to hand to check. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 06:30, 3 September 2007 (CDT)
The article obviously needs some cleanup and standardization. I didn't do this yet, because I think it might need to be deleted anyways. When we established that it's actually a new ship, the article can be refined. --Serenity 07:14, 3 September 2007 (CDT)
I put the boiler plate on just to direct people to the talk page, I didnt want to put an AFD on here until we are sure its not a freighter. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 08:39, 3 September 2007 (CDT)
It could be the left ship in this picture after all. There you can't really see it, but there is a ship that looks kinda like it at the very end of the Fleet's establishing shot in the opening credits. And its color is yellow, or rather ocher. But I'm confused about the episode cite for "Flesh and Bone" for example, since I can't see it there (time index 7:54 PAL). People should really take screencaps to identify what they mean... --Serenity 10:19, 3 September 2007 (CDT)
That picture doesn't really show enough to identify it though. I put a comment on the authors talk page about more details and a screenshot but there has been no response. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 07:25, 6 September 2007 (CDT)
I checked the footage and it's likely the vessel to the left. But as for a picture, it can't be seen clearly in the episode as the camera only zooms out that far when the explosion already happened. As said, it might be in the credits, but there you only see if from really far away. Still, I don't see it in the other episodes cited (at least not in the first establishing shots), so those could be removed, unless someone sees it - maybe in another scene. --Serenity 10:57, 6 September 2007 (CDT)
Look in the Miniseries as well as the other episodes. You can see it clearly there.--CoreyDanian
Sorry, but could you please just provide a screenshot? Or time stamps? I tried to verify this, but I don't see it. You mentioned "Black Market". There are exactly two shots of Prometheus. The first shows a yellow Colonial Movers freighter. The second is another establishing shot after Adama pulls the gun on Phelan, which isn't that different I think. Or maybe you mean one in the background of the Raptor shots, like this? Which of the three ships in LDYB do you mean? Is it the left ship in the picture above, or the Colonial Movers vessel? --Serenity 19:59, 10 September 2007 (CDT)
To summarize: it is better to show something than to tell something. Thus the recommendation for screenshots, with the ship indicated. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 20:35, 10 September 2007 (CDT)
I have updated it better to maybe help you all find a picture. I don't have the neccessary equipment for downloading. Use Act of Contrition, Six Degrees of Separation and flesh and bone for shots.--CoreyDanian
Looking at the Kodiak vessel seen in the fleet in the last episode, it seems to resemble the vessel I've been talking about? Doesn't anyone agree? Snr. Lt. Corey "Shadow" Danian (got promoted despite being 19) 05:16, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
It is Kodiak, and it is visible in Black Market as Lee enters the Prometheus in his raptor. It's a yellow pixely lump off in the corner. Kodiak is also visible in Daybreak pt 1 as the Galactica jumps to the colony. And I think later on in part 2 around our Earth.User:Sastrei 05:04, 12 Nov 2009 (UTC)
