Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome stars Luke Pasqualino (“The Borgias”) as a young Captain William Adama in the hard-hitting tale of the first Cylon war. Humans on the 12 colonial worlds are battling against their sentient creations, the Cylons, and a young Captain Adama is in the middle of the action assigned to the most powerful battlestar in the entire colonial fleet: the Galactica. With Ben Cotton (“Alcatraz”) as his co-pilot Coker and Lili Bordán (“Silent Witness”) as Dr. Becca Kelly, Captain Adama finds himself on a dangerous mission that becomes a turning point in the war for the desperate fleet.
With top-notch special effects and CGI, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, lives up to the franchise by providing stunning action visuals. This film is set between the events in Caprica, and the acclaimed reboot of the series.
