[UPDATED with news that Syfy will not be developing Blood & Chrome as a TV series]

Back in 2010, Blood & Chrome was eyed for a web series but Syfy decided to give it the full treatment. Set in the tenth year of the first Cylon War, the Battlestar Galactica spin-off explores the story of a young William Adama fresh out of the Academy, getting his first mission in the Colonial Fleet aboard the new Galactica.

The new trailer charges through shots from the 2-hour pilot, offering a look at the cutting-edge digital technology and special effects employed to depict the Cylon War. Catch it below:

As for whether it truly is a “game changer” as Syfy say, that remains to be seen. No word yet on when Blood & Chrome will land.

UPDATE: Bad news for those hoping Blood & Chrome would become a TV series. Syfy has decided not to go ahead with the project as a regular TV series and will instead pursue the original intention of an online series, while airing the already-produced 2-hour pilot as a 90 minute movie. Syfy president of original programming Mark Stern confirmed today:

“We are actively pursuing it as was originally intended: a groundbreaking digital series that will launch to audiences beyond the scope of a television screen. The 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date.”

    Nope, really not interested after Moore decided to thumb his nose at the audience with a deus ex machina ending for BSG: ‘we have no idea how to tie all the up loose ends and mysteries, so look, God Did It, OK? Now shut up and stop asking awkward questions, see?”

    In other words, a non-ending penned by lazy writers. It might work for those people for whom a ‘God Did It’ answer will silence all further questions, but not for me at least.

    And frankly, this feels like milking a franchise when we already know how everything turns out. I’m not investing a third time after two disappointments, (Caprica being the other) thanks. And with Syfy involved? Ugh.

      “we have no idea how to tie all the up loose ends” should be “we have no idea how to tie up all the loose ends”. Typed late at night after racing to meet a work deadline, sorry.

        While I was a huge BSG fan, and agree with the “deux ex machina” cop out of the writers, I disagree that the show overall was a disappointment. They may have flubbed the ending, but the entire series as a whole, the journey TO THE ENDING was magnificent. Incredible acting, great stories and dialogue, and impressive special effects. They touched on torture, the war on terror, religion, and political intrigue. It was my favorite show at the time it aired. Who cares if Caprica crashed and burned? BSG was terrific.
