First images from SyFy’s Blood & Chrome

SyFy gave Wondercon attendees a sneak peak at the upcoming 'Battlestar Galatica' spin off 'Blood and Chrome.' Take a look and tell us what you think!

When the finale for Battlestar Galactica aired a couple of years ago, it turned off a great deal of its fanbase. The subsequent Caprica performed poorly, despite finding its voice late in its first season. When SyFy announced a second spin off, Blood & Chrome, I had serious doubts. Ron D. Moore wasn’t to be involved, though fellow BSG producers David Eick, Bradley Thompson and David Weddle would be.

The story is set ten years into the start of the first Cylon war, and follows a young William “Husker” Adama as he is assigned to the Galactica as a fresh-from-the-academy pilot. The producers premiered a sizzle reel earlier this week at Wondercon, and it has reached the interwebs for us to share with you.

As it was created just for the con, and not necessarily as the anchor of their marketing campaign, it liberally borrowed from one of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailers. Despite that, the video has me more than a little stoked for the TV movie that will hopefully get taken to series. There is a considerable amount of story left to be told in the BSG universe. There hasn’t been a really good science fiction show — at least a space-based science fiction show — on the air since SyFy cancelled Stargate Universe. Hopefully Blood & Chrome will do a better job connecting with audiences.

Obviously not much to go on at this point, but it does look might pretty to me. What do you think?

NBC blocked the video you have posted.

This one, and the other that we had linked to earlier. One would think that SyFy would want to get the video out there as soon as possible.

Posted a new version of the trailer. But, NBC may block this one as well.

NBC Universal doesn’t seem to understand how the internet works so I’m not surprised. They only want things released by them on their terms. Having the video being spread by fans of BSG and TV bloggers is new and scary to them. Keep in mind I’m using the word new by their definition: Anything that has happened since the 80s in technology.

Must …. resist …. saying …. these … words …

Oh, hell:

All this has happened before, and wil happen again.

I’m surprised that they haven’t released it officially yet. Now that it is out there, it will be impossible to keep it from being re-uploaded and shared.

As I mentioned to Dorv. It’s hot. Steaming Frakkin’ hot.

Well, I was excited after reading this posting, and searched google. Alas, have found that Syfy announced wednesday that they will NOT pick it up for series on air. However, there may be hope for a web series via SyFy or some other outlet.

I’m betting it turned out to be alot more expensive than they thought it would be and just wouldn’t be financially smart to pick it up. Another similar series in terms of production was V and we all saw what happened with that one…
