Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome set to premiere THIS FRIDAY!

November 5th, 2012

First announced way back in 2010, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome will finally launch THIS FRIDAY according to a just-released announcement!

This story, set during the first Cylon War, looks to be the final adventure set in the world of Ronald D. Moore’s re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. Written by Michael Taylor (who worked with Ronald D. Moore on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine before becoming a key writer and executive producer of Battlestar Galactica and Caprica), Blood and Chrome was originally announced as a web-series, then it was going to air all together on TV as a pilot for a potential new BSG spin-off series, then it seemed to be dead, and now it is being released in the format in which it was originally conceived — as a multi-part web-series.  But unless something dramatic changes, the Syfy channel has nixed the possibility of future adventures, once all the parts of Blood and Chrome are released (over the next four weeks).

Why this spin-off of the critically acclaimed and wildly successful Battlestar Galactica has been kept on the shelf for years, before being dumped with almost no advance warning onto some never-before heard-of youtube channel is beyond me.  (It doesn’t bode well for this web-series being very good, but then again, TV executives have certainly been wrong before.)

Oh well.  Here’s hoping this final dip into the BSG pool is a good one.

Keep your eye on this space for the Blood and Chrome webisodes.
