The future of the BSG spin-off Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome remains uncertain. A pilot has been shot but the SyFy Channel still hasn’t decided what if anything they’ll do with it. Maybe we’ll never see Blood & Chrome, but at least we have the television show’s first trailer. And it’s good. Really good.
The following Blood & Chrome teaser was shown at a press event. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a BSG spin-off all crammed into one video. Watch it while it lasts…
If the above embed stops working here’s an alternative…
The trailer only hints at the plot of the show, in favor of kicking it with wall to wall action. But Blood & Chrome is actually a prequel to BSG, following the career of a young Adama back when he was called Husker and embroiled in humanity’s earlier conflicts with the Cylons.
The trailer appears to be everything you’ve ever wanted in a BSG spinoff. It’s everything Caprica wasn’t. I’m in. The fact that SyFy might be considering simply shelving this flat out incredible looking show is mind-boggling. Especially when you consider that they put that snooze-fest that was Caprica on the air. The pilot at least deserves to be seen.
