Syfy orders new 'Battlestar Galactica' series pilot

Holy frak!

Syfy has just ordered a new "Battlestar Galactica" series pilot.

The two-hour backdoor pilot chronicles a young William Adama's adventures during the first Cylon war.

BSG executive producer David Eick is back on board, though visionary showrunner of Syfy's first reinvention of the series, Ron Moore, is not.

The title is the very Spartacus-esque: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

Official description: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20’s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet… the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.

“The ‘Galactica’ universe as re-imagined by Ron Moore and David Eick is rich with possibilities and backstory,” said Syfy programming head Mark Stern. “We jumped at the chance to revisit the William Adama character and explore this exciting chapter in the BSG narrative which falls between the events of the original series and the prequel, ‘Caprica,’ currently airing on Syfy.”

“While maintaining the themes of politics, social propaganda, and the timeless question: what does it mean to be human? – ‘Blood & Chrome’ will also return us to the authentic, relentless depiction of combat and the agony and ecstasy of human-Cylon war, which was the hallmark of ‘Battlestar Galactica's’ early seasons,” said David Eick.

Still no word on whether Syfy's other BSG series, Caprica, will get a second season. Syfy says they have not yet decided, and stressed that the Blood & Chrome order will not impact the fate of Caprica (obviously with the Stargate franchise Syfy showed they're willing to have overlapping titles from the same creative universe as long as each pulls its weight).

Whatever happened to the first BG spin-off? I watched a couple of shows and then forgot about it. Did it get canceled?

It was awful, so I hope so. Maybe this spin off will be better.

No, it's still on. I gave up on it after about the second episode. I keep on thinking I'll give it another try due to how great the BSG reboot was, but I haven't been that bored.

This new show sounds like it might be full of win though.

I think I made it to episode 3. Or maybe I recorded up to 3 and only watched 2.

I couldn't get by the casting. Eric Stoltz and Trudy the Ho from Deadwood. No. Just, no.

Unfortunately, I think you already know the answer.

God knows I'll watch it, but I think the heart of Galactica is that Walking Dead type of end of the world hopelessness paired with the soapy mystery of 'who is a Cylon?' Not sure it can hold its own without that.

Thanks for posting the trailer though.

So say we all. :lol:

Thanks. Looks pretty good. I can't believe SyFy would even hesitate to show this when you consider some of the crap they have no problem airing.

Well this seems like a waste of a thread, SyFY have come out and said they wont be picking up the series, and will only air the 2 hr movie .
