So after the huge success of Battlestar Galactica on Syfy the creators wanted to craft some spin-offs/sequels. One of those sequels, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, seemed to have potential and the other one, titled Caprica seemed, to have less. Well to be honest both series could have been great, but Caprica fizzled in the ratings and creatively, so the future of Blood and Chrome was bleak. For a while it looked like it was still coming to the Syfy network then everything went all hush hush when it was canned.
Now Blood and Chrome is finally out online and you can watch the first two episodes are right here below!
New episodes of the series will roll out every Friday on a YouTube channel called Machinima Prime. The show is a co-production of Machinima, Inc. and Universal Cable Productions. The season finale will be available on November 30th.
Here’s synopsis from the official press release:
This highly anticipated chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, gifted fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, The Borgias), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and hungry for action, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, Alcatraz). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle as much as Adama craves its onset. Lili BordÃ¡n (Silent Witness) also stars.
Ensign William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), barely in his 20″²s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the colonial fleet: The Galactica. He quickly clashes with his co-pilot, Coker Fasjovik (Ben Cotton), a war-weary officer with just 47 days left on his tour of duty. In pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama can’t wait to enter the fray.
Adama and Coker’s supply mission features a surprise: their cargo is the beautiful and enigmatic scientist Dr Becca Kelly (Lili Bordan). The routine mission quickly becomes deadly as the small crew pilots their Raptor into Cylon territory.
