Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome - the trailer

Posted on March 22, 2012 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

It's not going to be made now, but the US SyFy channel went as far as shooting a two-hour pilot for a prequel series to Battlestar Galactica, called Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. Set during the first war with the Cylons – so after the tedium of Caprica but before the majesty of the first series – this had the potential to be the best of both worlds: no stupid mysticism, lots of space fights, plenty of interesting characters, including Adama and Tigh, and homeworlds to go back to. But SyFy in their wisdom haven't picked it up. More Alphas and Warehouse 13 for everyone, I guess.

But they made a trailer all the same and you can watch it below. Now, there's the possibility the pilot could be picked up as a digital series – would you watch it?
