And then there was “Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome”. With the SyFy Channel having canceled two of their more critically acclaim shows in the same year (“Caprica” and “Stargate: Universe”), they’ll need a replacement. “Sanctuary”, “Warehouse 13″, “Haven”, and their other barely sci-fi shows certainly aren’t gonna pull in the critics and audiences at the same time. Maybe “Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome” will manage that feat when it premieres next year. Until then, here are some concept artwork from the coming show:
Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20′s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet … the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.
The show will premiere as a two-hour backdoor pilot, which depending on its ratings, will either go to series or disappear along with the other “Battlestar Galactica” spin-off show.
