Humans and skinjobs alike, mark your calendars. Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome is finally coming on November 9. After a long road, it’s being picked up by our friends over at Machinima Prime. Get the frack in here and watch the fracking awesome trailer.
Blood and Chrome is another BSG-prequel, but unlike the short-lived series Caprica, it tells the story of young William Adama. You know, the guy who becomes Admiral Adama in the BSG you all know and love. It’s set 20 years after Caprica, and 40 years before Battlestar Galactica. Here’s the synopsis:
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.
The series was going to be picked up by SyFy, but those jerks cancelled it in favour of being jerks.
Check out the awesome trailer full of pew-pew and beautiful space arenas.
So say we all!
