    Default Blood & Chrome : News/Speculation/ General Discussion (Spoilers for Pilot)

    Chicago Tribune
    Exclusive: 'Battlestar Galactica' sets up a Young Adama spinoff

    by Maureen Ryan

    Those who've been hoping for a new chapter of the "Battlestar Galactica" story may get their wish.
    An online series called "Blood & Chrome" is in the works, one that would follow the experiences of a young William "Husker" Adama in the first Cylon War.

    According to Mark Stern, Syfy's executive vice president of original programming and the co-head of original content for Universal Cable Productions, "Battlestar Galactica" and "Caprica" co-executive producer Michael Taylor will write the the script for the new venture.

    Battlestar Galactica "Blood & Chrome" is "about a young man's initiation into war: both the realities of war as fought by soldiers on the ground (and in Battlestars and Vipers), and the somewhat less real version portrayed in the media," according to Taylor.

    Hmm....I can't help but wonder if that's just milking it.

    Why not just make a full series or miniseries based during the First Cylon War, wasn't there already a web series with Young Adama?

    The link says 9 or 10 web-based episodes at about 10 minutes apiece. So certainly they'll be online first.

    But if you do the math, that adds up quite nicely to the length of a movie--which I'd bet money will come out on DVD/BD.

    the razor flashbacks covered the early years of adama at the end of the war.

    and this series could easily end up like sanctury start as a web series and then become a full fledged series

    Ditto, the only web show I watched was sanctuary and even then I wasn't particularly pushed about it... a mini series would be great, like its a big gap in the universe between caprica and BSG, it could be really good.
    I dunno what to put in here now..

    Well this definitely sounds interesting. I'm a sucker for anything BSG related so it's not like I'm not going to watch it.

    Chevron Blood and Chrome Discussion and Speculation Thread *Spoilers*

    I noticed that there wasn't a thread for the upcoming web-series
    Spoiler:
    that will disclose more of the First Cylon War,
    so I decided to make one. Okay, first Q...

    If BaC takes off, does that spell doom for Caprica ?

    You'll probably have more luck in the BSG sub-forum.

    I suspect the Syfy will start using web series as back room pilots.

    Riese an Blood an chrome.

    I just hope it somewhat better than the last 3 seasons of BSG an the films an the first season of caprica.

    This sounds great. Should have been a fully fledged series rather than caprica (I like Caprica, I just can't help but think it should have been just a miniseries then follow it up with a first cylon war storyline.)

    I'd like to imagine that it could start with a young Adama still in training for the war. Not actually fighting but you do get to see him him deal with the rock hard veterans of the time as well as feature just how the Colonies maintained spirits during the war. The propaganda used and the level of patriotism. In fact it would be nice to have a Journalist as a main character as well as they write a story on the training Viper Jocks go through.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.
