It’s been a long time since 2004’s Battlestar Galactica finished and the failed Caprica was cancelled leaving us with no Battlestar. We’ve also lost the Stargate franchise, it’s going to be three years until episode 7 of the new Star Wars trilogy. Basically we’re geeks right? Right? So where’s the space action? There isn’t much around and then came along Universal Cable Productions’ long-awaited Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome.

Blood and Chrome is set before the 2004 reimagined television series with young William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), the story is set during the first Cylon war who has been assigned to the Galactica and finds himself  battling his co-pilot – Coker (Ben Cotton).

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome is a prequel movie which will air on Machinima’s YouTube Channel which will be broadcast as ten 7-12 minute episodes and will air over the next four weeks with the first one airing this Friday, 9th November. The two-hour television movie will air on SyFy early 2013.

The trailer is below, which I’m sure will whet your appetite:

  1. Frak! This passed me by completely. Thanks Mark. I was a big fan of the 2004 re-imagining. Fingers crossed on this one. It’s scripted by Michael Taylor (Deep Space Nine and Voyager) from a story by David Eick (Battlestar Galatica and Caprica), so all signs point to good?
