Editorial Reviews

An all-new chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga, Blood & Chrome 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, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, The Borgias), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Though Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, Alcatraz), the two men must set their differences aside when a routine escort mission with an enigmatic passenger (Lili Bordán, Silent Witness) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

I feel your pain my friends but the only way this could've become a series is if it were sold to TNT or perhaps AMC! They are the only channels showing anything bold or even remotely considered sci-fi. That would be a show called "Falling Skies", the single closest thing to sci-fi on American television. Shame.

The actual SYFY channel has completely abandoned all things science fiction. A few years ago MGM was taken over by new management and they immediately decided to cancel the following: SG:A, SG:U, the new SG-1 movie (SG: Revolution), and the new SG:A movie (SGA: Extinction).

As long as this current bunch of skin-jobs is in charge we will never get real sci-fi. Instead we get a steady diet of rediculous monster movies with horrible acting and direction. We get fed one ghost hunting show after another. We're up to 5 of those shows now right? Oh and my personal favorite - wresting. Wrestling? What the fraaaaak? I just cant wait to see steroid injected men all greased up in baby oil throwing eachother around for a buck. Yup. That qualifies as sci-fi now folks.

Unfortunately for us "real fans", we will never see a full blown BSG: B&C series. Not while those circle jerkers are in charge...!

...............UPDATE (3-20-13).................
I finally got a chance to watch this pilot/movie for the first time and mow im pipping mad! I cant believe America has given up on all things science fiction and let this one go. BSG:B&C is nothing short of spectacular. The story is compelling, with a bit of a callback to G. Baltar of the origanal series. They really know how to perfectly cast the BSG universe with the makers recasting many BSG/Caprica alumni. Us real fans will identify them immediatly.

The Time: The first Cylon War. The Place: Battlestar Galactica. Ensin Bill Adama is a young man right out of Viper Training, and sent on his first mission. Of course its top secret, and of course the fate of the war hangs on it, and of course he fracks a beautiful woman. Altho you can watch it bit by bit on line, it'll be far more fun to own the DVD, since the extra scenes often made Battlestar Galactica DVDs far more interesting, and complete. Also producer/developer/writer Ron's video commentary could be used for a college class in creative writing, since he's always revealing more than just dropped scenes and insider banter, but insights into his creative process. As for the film itself, its impressive. The computer graphics are along the line of PROMETHEUS. THe camerawork include a lot of bright lights shining into the lense, for realistic atmosphere, as well as outrageous futuristic technology. From the first moments of a viper battle, thru the latest technology inside the Battlestar, the residue of Battlestars in a battlefield in space, right up to the creepiest cylon creature yet, the film is a visual feast. But I deducted a star because as fun as this movie is, its far more eye candy orienated, than anything from the 2000 Battlestar series. BLOOD AND CHROME is a film with chills and thrills, but lacking the dramatic interplay, and philosophical overtones . This film contained three characters, with a couple of other people giving a few lines. Since no one believes that SYFY will pick up the option to turn this into a series, its hard to tell if "BLOOD AND CHROME" might have developed more character orienated scripts during season one. I've watched the film twice now, and BLOOD AND CHROME lacks the sophistication of Battlestar Galactica. Its that simple.

It is the tenth year of the Cylon War. The Colonial Fleet is gradually being worn down by their former slaves turned enemies, the Cylons. Bill Adama, a newly-graduated pilot assigned to the battlestar Galactica, takes part in what should be a simple escort mission but turns into a major operation which could have important ramifications for the entire war.

Blood and Chrome started life as a proposed full spin-off series of the new(er) Battlestar Galactica. The first spin-off, Caprica, had been a failure and was cancelled after one season. Popular opinion has it that the show was too talky, too cerebral and simply too dull, having moved away from the dogfights and political infighting that made the original series so compelling. For this second spin-off, the proposal was to make a balls-to-the-wall action show, a Top Gun in space with Vipers and Cylons. Setting the show during the First Cylon War would also allow the show to resolve some storylines from Caprica - which took place about sixteen years earlier - and foreshadow some of the events of BSG itself (which starts about forty-two years later).

In the event, it never happened. Blood and Chrome - the proposed pilot episode of the spin-off - was not picked up and, unless the imminent DVD/Blu-Ray release sells like gangbusters, will not be in the future. As it stands, it is left behind as a curiosity and, it has to be said, not a particularly compelling one.

Blood and Chrome was not filmed in the traditional manner. With the existing (massive and expensive-to-maintain) Galactica sets all destroyed at the end of filming, the producers were forced to rely on greenscreens and digital scans to reproduce the original sets.
