Well, it’s not the full-scale TV resurrection we were all hoping for, but at least we will finally get to see it: Syfy has announced that the Battlestar Galactica prequel spinoff, Blood & Chrome, will premiere this Friday, November 9th, as a web series. So now if your guy doesn’t win the presidential election tomorrow, you’ll have something to take your mind off the impending apocalyptic collapse of our nation.
Set during the first Cylon war, Blood & Chrome follows a young William Adama, who enters the war as a Viper pilot. The web series will premiere its 10 episodes on Machinima, with each installment clocking in at between 7 and 12 minutes. If you’d prefer to check it out in a non-internet fashion, Blood & Chrome will air on Syfy in 2013, and will also be available as an unrated DVD release sometime thereafter. But never mind all that now, let’s watch an incredibly awesome new trailer:
