BATTLESTAR GALACTICA is one of my favorite shows of all time, so it’s about frakkin’ time we got some more of it, even if we have to settle for an online webseries. At least it’s something, right? Taking place inbetween CAPRICA and BSG, BLOOD & CHROME will air online over the next four weeks. Below we have the series synopsis and the entire first episode for your viewing pleasure.
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. 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.
Or, if you so choose, you can wait until early 2013 to watch the original pilot air on SyFy, and grab the unrated series on Blu-Ray or DVD on February 19th, 2013.
