The story unfolds as a terrorist attack by a youth seeking to draw attention to his monotheistic cause (most worship the old Greek gods). The result tears two families apart and in half a century's time will lead to the destruction of human society. But before that there is one hell of a story to be told.Read more ›
The story of Caprica takes place "58 years before the fall" of the colonies. At the heart of the story are two families: the Graystones, a wealthy family whose patriarch founded a technology company (a company that inadvertently leads to the downfall of all mankind); and the Adamas, a less-than-wealthy family from the world of Tauron. Joseph Adama, father of the future Admiral Adama (now only an eleven-year-old boy) is attempting to hide his family's ties to Tauron by changing their name to Adams. Both of these families are drawn together by tragedy when Graystone's daughter, Zoe, is killed in a terrorist attack by a monotheistic group along with Joseph Adama's wife and daughter.
By accident, Graystone discovers that his daughter created a fully functional avatar in a virtual world where she and her friends, along with the youth of Caprica, go to escape their mundane world. Using his daughter's work and a piece of stolen technology, Graystone downloads Zoe into a robotic form his company is working on for the Defense Ministry.Read more ›
The story centres around two familles, the Greystones and the Adams, both of which are devastated when a suicide bombing on a maglev train kills Daniel Greystone's daughter and Joseph Adams' wife and daughter.
As the authorities investigate the bombing, evidence seems to indicate that Daniel's daughter Zoe may have been involved with a religious extremist group called 'Soldiers Of The One' who believe that there is only one god and not many.
While Joseph tries to help his son William through the trauma, he is asked by some of his Tauron colleagues to 'help' them with a legal issue. Being a man of moral standing, Joseph has trouble with what they want and tries to find a way out of the situation.
Daniel also has problems with both his wife, Amanda, and that his company's latest project, the U-78 (that's the old style Centurions!) is being threatened by an off-world corporation. As Daniel attempts to complete the project, a friend of Zoe's unwittingly shows him the way to solve his problem and a way to get his daughter back.
Zoe's ability to manipulate digital information and environments leads Daniel into a virtual reality world of night-clubs, sex, excess, human sacrifices and digital avatars.
Both Daniel and Joseph struggle to come to terms with their loss but in the wake of the tragedy they both begin to find something out about themselves.
For those fans wanting a show like BSG, this is not it.Read more ›

Love Caprica and Battlestar but this purchase isn't worth the money. You can find it for a better price on Blu Ray and DVD. Plus it's only the first episode.Published 10 months ago by Hilary Hammond

|Caprica on Blu-Ray?||
I've heard that Caprica will be included on the entire series boxed set, and since the boxed set is being released in both blu ray & standard, I assume the blu ray set must have a blu ray Caprica...?

|Watching Caprica makes me annoyed I didn't watch BSG||
Actually I found that Caprica would have been a much better show if it wasn't tied to BSG. It might have even avoided cancellation. The two shows seem completely different, with the only unifying element being the cylons and the Adama line (still can't believe they felt the need to do that). ... Read More

|Caprica DVD and Pilot episodes.||
Yes, the DVD just titled "Caprica" is the pilot found on Caprica 1.0 (part 1 and 2). No need to buy both. Actually, I'm going to hold out until it comes out on Blu Ray.

Both shows exist independently of one another and you don't have to watch the one to understand the other. However, I feel to better understand some of the more subtle references in "Caprica" to watch "BSG" first.
