First clip of 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome' hits the web
Earlier this week we reported that 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome' was premiering on the web as a series of short episodes beginning this Friday. Today, the first clip of the series was released and it is looking pretty sweet.
The prequel, 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome' was conceived as a two-hour pilot for a television series but will now be released as ten short webisodes on Machinima Prime. The new series takes place in the tenth year of the original Cylon war and focuses on a young William Adama before he attains the rank of Commander, as we know him in the original series. The official description is as follows:
"As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet."
November 9th brings the launch of the new web series, with the subsequent episodes to be released over the following four weeks. The original pilot will be airing in its complete two-hour format on Syfy in early 2013.
