Your wait is finally being rewarded. The Battlestar Galactica prequel Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome, for which the words “long awaited” surely apply, now has a release date: Friday (November 9th), via Machinima Prime on YouTube, and the trailer was posted today. It’ll be released as ten 7-1/2 minute episodes over four weeks, and a two-hour TV version will air on Syfy in early 2013 followed by an unrated (ooh, dirty!) version on home video.
The prequel is about, of course, Young Adama, played by Luke Pasqualino from the BBC version of Skins, as he learns the ropes on the Galactica during the First Cylon War, locking horns with cranky and soon-to-retire co-pilot Coker (Ben Cotton). The manner by which this is being released may be a surprise, and the timing sure is, but if you’ve been wondering when, if ever, you’d get to see this, you need wonder no longer.
