A while back it was announced that we were still in for a new Battlestar Galactica prequel, called Caprica. Soon after that, we were made aware that Caprica was not a movie, but that it would be an entire season of the prequel show. We rejoiced.
Now I may be the only one who wasn’t aware of this, but we’re actually getting BOTH. On April 21, 2009, Caprica the movie prequel will be released on DVD, and then later on this summer, production on the TV series will begin! The only thing better than this would be news that they changed their mind about ending BSG.
This format is brilliant, as we the fans will be able to catch the movie and shout our thoughts and opinions out on this glorious Internet, where the show’s producers will then be able to take everything into consideration before moving forward on the series.
Now that we can take solace in the fact that we’ll be getting some Caprica and the other spin-off The Plan soon — allow us to share some information on the DVD along with some clips. Who doesn’t adore a good clip?

Set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families and their patriarchs â€“ Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) and Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) â€“ as they compete and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies, a society recognizably close to our own. Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics.
