Earlier this week, we reported that the Syfy pilot Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome has been resurrected in an intriguing way. The two-hour movie has been split up into web series episodes that will run between 7 and 12 minutes in length, debuting on the Machinima Prime YouTube channel. The first two episodes have been released for your viewing pleasure. Watch as William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) gets assigned to The Galactica in this web series set during the first Cylon war.

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 Bordán (Silent Witness) also stars.
