Caprica

Caprica


The Future Of Humanity
Begins With A Choice



The planet Caprica is the cultural, economic, political, educational, and technological centre of the Twelve Colonies. However, this world is also rotting. Plagued with decadence and crime, the people of Caprica are unaware of the storm brewing in the form of the creation of the Cylons, a robotic life-form that is destined to rebel and eventually destroy the Twelve Colonies.

Set nearly 60 years before the war between man and machine depicted in Battlestar Galactica, Caprica establishes a much earlier conflict, one that pits the predominately polytheistic colonial society against an uprising belief based on the radical idea of a singular God. Coinciding with this spiritual warfare is the creation of the Cylons. Developed to be a leap in technological progress, Cylons are made with the promise of becoming an artificially new race to walk beside mankind, but with none of its inherit rights.

These events are set against the backdrop of the Graystones and the Adamas, two distinct families whose lives intersect and change forever following a terrorist bombing that takes the lives of their daughters. Motivated by factors ranging from loyalty and family to greed and hubris, their choices will lead to allegiances, betrayals, and even murder. The consequences of their actions will seal humanity's inevitable damnation, as well as planting the seeds of its possible salvation.

Taking place in an earlier era and place than Battlestar Galactica, this prequel series hopes to continue posing moral and philosophical questions in the same tradition of dramatic storytelling without imitating it. The show's different time and location allows the story told in its predecessor to be tackled from a different perspective with new characters, environment, and elements.

1x18: Apotheosis recap: Olaf and Clarice are arguing about going back home, fearing that the Graystones have called the GDD. Just then Singh confronts them, revealing himself to be their contact Alvo. Realising that it's safe, they take him to their attic, showing him the resurrection programme. He assures them that the Graystones haven't called the police and will interject to keep them from foiling the Atlas bombing... read more.

1x17: Here Be Dragons recap: Daniel, Amanda, and Sam continue trekking through the forests, but stop. The Graystones stay behind as Sam checks up ahead. Amanda recognises him from somewhere and doesn't trust him. As Daniel observes Zoe's ability to create the land, Amanda's horse suddenly transforms into a dragon and begins attacking her. Sam quickly returns and shoots it, just as the other two horses change into dragons, which he quickly guns down. Daniel and Amanda think that Zoe is trying to scare them off, but Sam believes that she's trying to kill them... read more.

1x16: The Heavens Will Rise recap: In what was once New Cap City, Tamara and Zoe look over their recreation. Zoe is pleased, but Tamara adds one last flourish touch. These alterations are being tracked by Daniel. He pinpoints their location and overrides a lockout to access a backdoor. From there, he plucks Tamara, but Zoe has quickly followed. She "kills" Daniel, shutting out his one means of circumventing the official opening into the game. He and Amanda now only have one port to enter, therefore giving them only one shot. As the two contemplate their situation, Amanda gets a text message from Duram. Amanda decides to tell Daniel about her CI work... read more.

1x15: The Dirteaters recap: In the Ha'la'tha clubhouse, a ceremony is being prepared to initiate Joseph and Sam into ranks within the organisation. However, Joseph is not happy about what the Guatrau has been doing recently, but Sam writes it off as unmovable. The ceremony begins with the arrival of the Guatrau. Sam is being promoted to Captain; Joseph becomes one of the Ha'la'tha... read more.

1x14: Blowback recap: At a Caprican spaceport, Lacy meets a boy named Odin Sinclair who's there because of his fervently religious parents. Diego rounds them up along with other recruits on a jumpship. Shortly after take-off, Lacy notices another ship flying nearby in the window. It suddenly hitches onto theirs and is soon boarded by hijackers who kill the STO trainers. The hijackers are polytheists and begin making demands on the phone to an unspecified authority. They make an example of one boy as he pleads for his life as they take him into another part of the ship where he is airlocked shortly afterwards. As the hijackers continue to make demands, Odin has discovered a bar that is loose, but needs time to loosen it behind the hijackers' backs. One recruit saves his life by denouncing the One God and is taken to be treated with care. Another stands up, but instead denounces the false gods before she is airlocked. Odin and Lacy are overheard talking and Lacy is then taken to be airlocked. She attacks Odin for buying his time, allowing the hijackers to get close enough for all the recruits to make their move. The tables have turned as the recruits begin fighting back, but are stopped by none other than Diego. The whole thing was a ruse concocted by the STO to test the recruits, with dummies being airlocked... read more.
