The long awaited premiere for ‘Battlestar Galatica: Blood and Chrome’ is only hours away (the first installment will air Friday, November 9th), but if you want to get a taste of what the “web-series” will entail, we have a clip for you to see courtesy of MachinimaETS!
The footage is of the young Ensign Adama trying to hold his own against two Cylon fighters. The sequence is very reminiscent of the dog fighting seen in ‘Top Gun’ but instead of occurring over the waters of the Persian Gulf, this dog fight occurs in space. The action is quick and you get to hear Adama drop the F-bomb (yep, he says the trademark “Frack!”)
Here’s a little more of what to expect from the webisodes:
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20’s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet… the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.
Check out the clip below and let us know if it has gotten you excited about finally seeing ‘BSG: Blood and Chrome!’
