Nuked Caprica - somewhere outside the Delphi Museum
Simon Fraser University. The entrance is where Burnaby Mountain Parkway meets Gaglardi Way.

Travel Tips: This area is the stairs just before you enter the academic quadrangle. I couldn't resist recreating this screencap as best as we could with just two people (and my limited leg-acting skills!).  

Finding a map on campus can be difficult, so use an online map like the one at the beginning of this post to help you plot your route through (or bring it up on your phone while you're there). We recommend parking in front of the West Mall Centre (aka the museum at Delphi!) as the best way to access all the sites at SFU (see photo, click to enlarge).

 
 
This episode has four locations.
1.  Delphi museum
The West Mall building, Simon Fraser University 
Entrance is where Burnaby Mountain Parkway meets Gaglardi Way.

Travel Tip: Used in many episodes, Simon Fraser University doubles as nuked Caprica in Kobol's Last Gleaming II. The West Mall Centre (right across from parking, as pictured) was used to represent the facade of the Delphi Museum. The match of Helo and Sharon at the bottom of the gallery was taken at the Transportation Centre.

2.  Interior Delphi Museum

This set was constructed in the old Woodwards building in downtown Vancouver. This building's roof is also where you see Six, Doral and Sharon standing in Litmus. It was torn down several years ago.

3.  Kobol - Raptor crash site
Widgeon Slough - Facility run by Metro Vancouver

Travel Tips: The road to this area is private and gated; there is no public access. As a side note, the popular Twilight series filmed here as well.


4.  The Opera House
The Orpheum Theatre, 850 block on the corner of Smithe and Seymour Streets, Vancouver

Travel Tips: Appearing in numerous episodes, The Opera House is an amazing spot to visit. In July and August, The Orpheum Theatre provides public tours that cost about $10 per person. The tour is two hours long and you get to explore the Orpheum from basement to attic!  An article about tours in 2011: Orpheum Tours.

Our tour guide, Arthur, was such a nice guy. There was an orchestra rehearsing while we were there, so we had to wait quite a while before we could get on stage. At first, Arthur would only let us peek into the theatre, then after a few more minutes of exploring, he let us quietly step in and walk a few meters to stand and listen. Finally, he got comfortable enough with Anne and me that he let us sit in balcony seats and enjoy the music. It was amazing. The orchestra rehearsal was scheduled to end at 12:30 pm, but we got worried as they seemed to be in the middle of a very long piece as the time approached. In the end, they stopped mid-piece and packed up their stuff on the dot of 12:30 pm!  It was AWESOME to be on stage.

Travel Tip: An absolute not-to-be-missed location in Burnaby, Simon Fraser University appears in many episodes.

2.  Roslin's Doctor's Office
The Waterfall Building, 1540 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver

Travel Tips: Used in many episodes, The Waterfall Building was Roslin's doctor's office in both the miniseries and Epiphanies (in flashback). Parking is an issue here--there is a gravel pay lot just across from the building that is best. There is also, appropriately, a Starbucks nearby! 
 
 
This episode has eight locations.
1 & 2.  Kara's apartment and Roslin's apartment
The Waterfall Building, 1540 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver
Travel Tips: Kara's apartment remains consistently the Waterfall Building throughout the series. In Daybreak, we see Roslin's Caprica apartment for the first time. It's the penthouse on the east side of the complex. Parking is an issue here--there is a gravel pay lot just across from the building that is best. There is also, appropriately, a Starbucks nearby!  

3.  Baltar's Father's House
Private residence in West Vancouver.
Picture
Travel Tips: Baltar's father's place was a small house in West Vancouver. Private.

4.  Daybreak Fountain
Simon Fraser University, entrance is where Burnaby Mountain Parkway meets Gaglardi Way.

A behind the scenes look at Underworld 4
Travel Tips: Yes, I walked into the reflecting pool at the academic quadrangle. :) At that time, May 2010, there was no algae or koi in the water, and it was ridiculously cold, but very clean. We were there on a Friday afternoon, so there were virtually no students on campus. In 2011, the algae and koi were back, causing Anne to rethink her own wading plans, and we walked into a film shoot for Underworld 4!
