There's a prequel to the latest Battlestar Galactica series on the way, dealing with the adventures of a certain Bill Adama during the first Cylon War.

Here's the series' first trailer, which it appears somebody snuck out of last weekend's Wondercon. It looks exciting, and surprisingly expensive. Then again, it's a trailer. It's supposed to look good. Whether the actual show (filmed almost entirely on green screen) can live up to this is anyone's guess!

The series is called Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome. It began filming last year, and while it was at one point mooted as a candidate for being an online-only affair, this looks too awesome to not get the big (well, bigger-than-a-monitor) screen treatment.
