It's been six years since SciFi became Syfy, and it has given us some great shows and some total duds.

Battlestar Galactica prequel gets thumbs-up from Sci-Fi; two-hour pilot will show creation of toasters...err, Cylons.
Mar 19, 2008
Caprica is on!

Creating the Cylons 101, coming to a television set near you.

Battlestar Galacti-geeks got a heap of good news yesterday during the Sci-Fi Channel's press confab in New York City. No, it's not another season of Battlestar Galactica--the upcoming fourth season is still its last--but it's almost as good.

The long-rumored BSG prequel Caprica is no longer rumor; it's science fact. [Editor's note: called it yesterday afternoon!] Fans familiar with Battlestar's "The Cylons were created by man" intro (well duh, have you seen Sharon and Number Six?) will finally get to see it happen. Sci-Fi has given the go-ahead on a two-hour Caprica pilot; if it's successful, it will likely be turned into a series.

Caprica, named after the giant rock that much of the Galactica crew called home before it was blown to smithereens by supersmart robots, will take place about ...

Sci Fi mulling idea of making as many as three more made-for-TV BSG movies before show ends its run.

Battlestar movies may get made

The producers of Battlestar Galactica may have already set an end date for the popular science-fiction show, but that doesn't mean it's really the end of Battlestar Galactica.

The Sci Fi Channel show ends its four-season run at the conclusion of this season, but could live on in the form of something it's already very familiar with--made-for-television movies. The Chicago Tribune reports (citing BSG fan site Galactica Sitrep) that talks are under way to produce as many as three telefilms set in the Battlestar universe.

The films, which could be shot later this year, have the blessing of at least part of the cast and the producers. However, with some cast members already planning their post-Battlestar careers, timing of the movies' production and actors' availability will be paramount to which ...

Jericho, Deadwood actors join Caprica; Warehouse 13 uncovers leads.

Stars align for Sci Fi shows

The universe's most badass spaceship commander has a dad! Producers have begun casting the Battlestar Galactica prequel series Caprica, filling in the roles of William Adama's father and a female lead.

Playing Joseph Adama will be Esai Morales, who recently starred in the second season of Jericho and previously wore a badge on NYPD Blue, says The Hollywood Reporter. If Battlestar fans thought Bill Adama (played by Edward James Olmos) was tough as nails, they'll be kowtowing to Joe, who is every bit as devoted and firm as his son and then some.

Paula Malcomson, who played prostitute Trixie in HBO's Deadwood, will play a surgeon named Amanda who is also a double agent.

Caprica, which is looking like Sci Fi Channel's next big thing, is set more than half a century before the events of Battlestar Galactica and outlines the development of the Cylons ...

Battlestar prequel trailer shows retro future; second half of flagship series to debut in January.
Jul 22, 2008
Caprica peek now online

In Battlestar Galactica, creator Ronald D. Moore painted a bleak future for humanity, with a robot uprising bent on extinguishing (or at least making things really difficult for) the human race. But before man made the gun-totin' toasters, life was rather...jazzy.

That's the look producers have gone for in Caprica, the prequel to Sci Fi Channel's re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series. The Los Angeles Times has a trailer for Caprica, and in contrast to the space travel and command decks of BSG, Caprica looks decidedly retro--almost an ode to the cigar-smoking, Scotch-swigging era of the 1950s.

The trailer teases the show's main conflict--namely, the rivalry between the Graystones and the Adamas that's created after advanced robotics (beta Cylons) are used to replace a daughter that has died. Fans looking for flying cars and spaceship battles will likely have to look elsewhere; aside from a couple shots ...

Sam Adama

Set 58 years prior to the events of Battlestar Galactica (2003), this prequel will explore the lives of two families: the Graystones - including father Daniel, a computer genius, mother Amanda, a brilliant surgeon and their daughter, Zoe - and the Adamas, focusing on Joseph, a lawyer, Sam, his gangster brother, and Willie and Tamara, Joseph's children. The two families are on opposing sides of the decision to create the Cylons: intelligent robots that will one day rebel and nearly annihilate the residents of Caprica. Touted as "television's first science fiction family saga," Caprica is from Battlestar Galactica (2003) executive producers, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. The show is produced by NBC Universal Television.
