SyFy Planning Another Battlestar Galactica Prequel Series

The SyFy network has greenlit  another ‘Battlestar Galactica’ prequel series, even though it’s still airing its current prequel, ‘Caprica,’ Slashfilm.com is reporting. The new two hour pilot, titled ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome,’ will follow a young William Adama as he serves as a Viper pilot during the first Cylon war. He is ordered to serve during a top secret, but dangerous, mission during the war with the Cylon robots.

‘Blood and Chrome’ is rumored to focus more on the action that was customary during the original re-imaged series SyFy ran for four seasons, starting in 2004. William, who was portrayed by Edward James Olmos in the original ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ was a legendary military leader on that show. He helped the human race survive during a battle with the Cylons, who destroy their home.

William, one of the more popular characters in the original series, also appears on ‘Caprica.’ However, his father Joseph plays more of a major role on that series, which hasn’t officially been given a second season yet. ‘Blood and Chrome’ will take place between the two existing shows, but there’s not word yet on how much the three will be interwoven.
