“Blood and Chrome” = New BSG

One of the most exciting announcements coming out of San Diego Comic-Con 2010 was the news that SyFy Channel is planning a new Battlestar Galactica webseries, called Blood and Chrome, which will re-visit the universe as created by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick (as opposed to the new new re-imagined version in the works that I’m just a little worried about…sigh).

The 10 episode series will be written by former BSG staffer Michael Taylor, and will focus on the adventures of the young William “Husker” Adama during the first Cylon War.

There are some interesting tidbits dropped here and here by SyFy exec Mark Stern.

If this project does come to fruition, a) it would be nice to see Nico Cortez in the role of Adama once again, having done such a good job of creating a believable younger version of Edward James Olmos’ character in the Razor flashback sequences and b) it would be nice to see this version of BSG end with something of a bit higher quality than The Plan.
