Scott Ian reflects on Escape Velocity on his Sci-Fi.Com blog:
Poor Chief. He loses his lady and then loses his shit with the old man. His description of Cally, "a shriek with dull-vacant eyes, the boiled cabbage stench of her" was oddly accurate. Is Chief's Cylon programming disavowing his relationship with a human knowing that it could have been with Boomer or is it just a case of the grass being greener? I asked my main-man Aaron Douglas and he was his usual forthcoming self (although I can't print everything he told me, no spoilers here).
Long days of really emotional stuff.
Really very tiring and hard because the rest of the cast has little to do so they get restless after 5 hours of doing the same thing and I am still trying to stay in the place of emotion of a funeral.
The scene with Eddie and I in the bar is one of my favorites.
I have not seen the ep yet so I don't know how it turned out.
We did my coverage 3 times.
The first time, which by all accounts was the best, was not recorded. The camera guys did not turn them on.
That was frustrating.
So what people saw on Friday was my 2nd best performance.
I will watch it tonight and see if I remember anything else.
That was a year ago that we shot it."
And he also added this:
"And tell the fans to watch for the Chief in the next weeks ep. He goes a little nuts…"

Dr. Kevin Grazier writes for Cinemaspy:
Back on February 11, CinemaSpy reported that the leader of the Imaging Science team on NASA'S Cassini mission to Saturn, Dr. Carolyn C. Porco, had accepted an invitation from producer/director J.J. Abrams to join the Star Trek XI production crew as a consultant on planetary science and imagery for the forthcoming feature film.
As Battlestar Galactica's science advisor and CinemaSpy's resident Cinema Boffin columnist, it seemed appropriate for yours truly to sit down with Dr. Porco and discuss her involvement with Star Trek XI, but to first give our readers a little taste of her real world responsibilities — responsibilities that would ultimately lead producer J.J. Abrams to determine that she was the ideal choice to ensure that Star Trek's astronomical imagery and planetary scenes look as realistic as possible.
Dr. Porco is currently a Sr. Research Scientist at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado, She is the Team Leader for the Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) instrument on the Cassini/Huygens Mission to Saturn and Titan, as well as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
