Missing Battlestar Galactica? Fancy seeing Adama once again? Well tonight you’ll get a chance to see the first two episodes of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome thanks Machinima.
I watched the original Battlestar Galactica series (and spin offs)but I never really watched the rebooted series which Blood and Chrome is a spin off. Caprica which came across a little more grittier was all about the birth of the Cylons so really Blood and Chrome is a sequel to Caprica as it tells the story of the early days of the Cylon War. The story follows one young ensign William Adama who comes in BSG Admiral Adama with a focus more towards big action scenes and the daring space missions which fans of the original will enjoy even the rebooted version too. Adama is played by British actor Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias).
The series has been split up into 12 parts to be shown via youtube based Machinima with Syfy channel to show it (probably 2013) combined as a TV film with an extended version on DVD/Bluray. I’ll leave the judgement to yourself as the whole rebooted story is new to myself and if your a fans of the new version you’ll be the best judge what I will say it looks very nostalgic but what is a little annoying is the flares lens which is over used….enjoy!
Episode 1:Ensign William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), barely in his 20′s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the colonial fleet: The Galactica. He quickly clashes with his co-pilot, Coker Fasjovik (Ben Cotton), a war-weary officer with just 47 days left on his tour of duty. In pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama can’t wait to enter the fray.
Episode2:Adama and Coker’s supply mission features a surprise: their cargo is the beautiful and enigmatic scientist Dr Becca Kelly (Lili Bordan). The routine mission quickly becomes deadly as the small crew pilots their Raptor into Cylon territory.
