Last November Syfy announced that Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome would premiere as a ten-part web series on the Machinima Prime Youtube channel, before the network would air the proposed pilot as a two-hour TV movie in February 2013. TVWise has since learned that the network will air Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on Sunday February 10th at 9/8c.
The pilot for the proposed prequel series 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), 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). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle as much as Adama craves its onset.
