Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome pilot to air online

Here’s some salve to the wound of those looking forward to Syfy’s uncommissioned Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome series…

Anyone impatient to see the pilot of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome before Syfy airs it next year is in luck, as Machinima’s YouTube Channel is to release the two-hour episode in a series of seven to twelve-minute chunks over the next four weeks, starting this Friday the 9th of November. 

The Battlestar Galactica prequel, set in the tenth year of the original Cylon war and starring Skins’ Luke Pasqualino as the young Bill Adama, was set to follow the Viper pilot’s first assignment to the Galactica. 

Having failed to make it to a season commission, the two-hour pilot is expected to be given a DVD release in 2013 in addition to the planned YouTube and Syfy airings, though unfortunately, that's our lot. Admittedly it's better than nothing, but the announcement comes tinged with 'what could have been' disappointment over what looked at one point to be a welcome continuation of a much-loved franchise. So say we all.
