Hi, Bryan Here….
We’ve been hearing about that prequel series, ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome’ for a while now. It will debut sometime soon on the SyFy network. ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome’ will take place during the first Cylon war where the Admiral Adama we all know (played by Edward James Olmos in the recent series) will play a much younger 20 something fighter pilot. He is known in the prequel series as ‘Husker’.
Here is the trailer that screened at WonderCon recently. This is at the top of my list of most anticipated series to come out anytime in the near future. This just looks amazing and I love that the trailer is set to a version of Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song’. I cannot wait for this to air. Bear McCreary confirmed recently he just finished scoring the two hour pilot episode. McCreary did all the music for the recent series. Thanks to Aintitcool for the video. Enjoy.

First, that is a horrible version of Immigrant Song and should not be allowed to exist.
Secondly, didn’t we learn anything from the Star Wars prequels. Prequels don’t often work and aren’t as interesting because the audience already knows what is going to happen-nothing is at stake and the drama falls flat. They would have been better off making a prequel tv miniseries and not attempt a full series.
That’s not the worst song covered I’ve heard. And with the Star Wars prequels, Lucas was the one who ruined those, not the films themselves. This BSG prequel has a lot of talent behind it. Some of the same from the last series, so I have hope. Yeah we all know Adama survives and the BSG survives, but a look at the first cylon war is going to be great.
Speaking of covers: the trailer has a great feel to it, though it’s a lil sad the enormous debt Syfy’s marketers owe to the original version of this, (the Roomey Mara cover of) Lisbeth’s epic Dragon Tattoo. Right down to the song and the typographic pacing at the end, guys? Quite an homage, if that was what you were, um, going for.
NBC Universal has to ruin everything. My cries
Yes they most certainly do. There were a few other links, but sadly, all have been taken down so far. Will keep this updated as soon as we find a working video.
Star Wars prequels were great, so I’m not sure what the issue there is and I for one welcome any BSG back whether it’s prequel, sequel, dream sequence or WHATEVER. I’ll tune if for certain.
Wait wait wait. “Star Wars prequels were great”? You might the only person on the planet besides Lucas to say that? Please explain why they were great and go into detail.
He probably saw them when he was 12 or something. Which is not inherently bad, TPM came out when I was 13 and at the time I thought it was pretty cool. But going back now and having to put up with Jar-Jar, and Anakin’s unrealistic, annoying dialogue… the awkward dialogue in general really. And the romantic scenes in Episode II with dialogue evidently lifted directly from a 13 year old emo girl’s poetry journal, oh my god. Those scenes are absolutely vomit inducing. Episode 3 wasn’t so bad if you can get past Vader’s final line and the crappy reasoning behind Padme’s death though.
All three of the prequels were pretty awful. While the third one had more action beats to it, the films was still a pile of dog shit. I even think with the original three nowadays and all of their changes, they are almost as terrible as the prequels. But not al prequels are bad. For example: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Godfather 2 (sort of a prequel), and X-men First Class are just a few prequels that are really good. But, Star Wars? All the prequels did and were meant to do was to sell toys. Nothing more. The same goes with the original trilogy now. It should be about storytelling and filmmaking, not about making a dollar off the 37th action figure of Luke Skywalker in storm trooper gear.
Scumbags at NBC got cranky and blocked the vid citing copyright.
Battlestar Gallactica is still a poor Doctor Who rip off. They even had to change the Cylons, which were almost identical to the Daleks.
Battlestar still holds its own. I’m a fan of both shows, but Dr. Who is sillier than BSG. And Cylons are a better villain too.
