Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome

(2013)

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20’s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet… the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet. “The ‘Galactica’ universe as re-imagined by Ron Moore and David Eick is rich with possibilities and backstory,” said SyFy's Mark Stern.

“We jumped at the chance to revisit the William Adama character and explore this exciting chapter in the BSG narrative which falls between the events of the original series and the prequel, ‘Caprica,’ currently airing on Syfy.”

Even though Syfy did not pick up Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome to series, BSG fans got to experience this new show in more ways than one. The two-hour pilot was split up into 10 webisodes before the entire episode aired as a TV movie on Syfy. Universal Studios Home Entertainment is releasing Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on Blu-ray and DVD February 19, which is set during the first 10 years of the Cylon War, between the events of Caprica and Battlestar Galactica. I recently had the chance to speak with Ben Cotton, who plays Coker Fasjovik on the show. Take a look at what he had to say below.

When Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome was first announced, many thought it would be a surefire lock for a series order. While that sadly wasn't the case, the show still lived on in ways many discarded pilots never do. The show was split into 10 segments for a web series on Machinima, before the complete episode ran as a two-hour TV movie on Syfy. Now fans get to enjoy Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome whenever they want with the Blu-ray and DVD release February 19. I recently had the chance to speak with actress Lili Bordán, who plays Dr. Becca Kelly on the show, which is set during the first years of the Cylon War, directly between the events in Caprica and Battlestar Galactica.

Here's what she had to say.

This highly anticipated chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war.

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 Bordán (Silent Witness) also stars.
