Caprican Sub Culture


Thanks to The Thumbcast‘s Iain Hepburn for drawing my attention to this blog post by SFX columnist Jayne Nelson.

I’ve only seen the pilot episode so far, but I really like what I’ve seen of the Battlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica.

However, like Jayne, I am a sub-editor and appalled by this blatant error in the masthead of what is presumably one of Caprica’s leading newspapers – it seems that when it comes to the printed word, the Colonials cut corners in more ways than one:

Unless, of course this isn’t a glaring error by the props department but a subtle foreshadowing of the falling standards that lead to the breakdown of Caprican society, the creation and rise of the Cylons and, ultimately, the nuclear annihilation of the Twelve Colonies and the massacre of 50billion people.

See what can happen when you sack too many journalists? We have been warned…
