I don't think we have heard much lately about the Battlestar Galactica prequel, "Blood and Chrome," other than it is currently in production.

Update: Below trailer was unofficially released and SyFy passes on TV series.

Well, a new trailer has surfaced which sees a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" play a part.

And it rocks!

I also don't think it has been officially stated just how SyFy will deliver the show. At last year's San Diego Comic Con it was mentioned that BSG: Blood and Chrome may have an online release. However, we do know that a two hour pilot has been green lit, and also composer Bear McCreary has stated he scored the pilot as well.  

And as io9 notes, the series deserves to be released on TV, so make some noise BSG fans! — @SyFy!

The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands! So Say We All! 


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.

Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.
