That didn't take long, did it? SF Channel has announced a spin off of its one decent property, showing the events leading up to (and hopefully during) the Cylon War. Here's the release: From executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick ('Battlestar Galactica'), writer Remi Aubuchon ('24') and NBC Universal Television Studio, this new series is set over a half a century before the events that play out in 'Battlestar Galactica.' The people of the Twelve Colonies are at peace and living in a society not unlike our own, but where high-technology has changed the lives of virtually everyone for the better. But a startling breakthrough in robotics is about to occur, one that will bring to life the age-old dream of marrying artificial intelligence with a mechanical body to create the first living robot - a Cylon. Following the lives of two families, the Graystones and the Adamas (the family of William Adama, who will one day become the commander of the 'Battlestar Galactica') 'Caprica' weaves corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics into television's first science fiction family saga. This is a series I am interested in, but, at the moment I'm not sure I want to see it as a multi-year series. A long miniseries would likely sate my curiosity. Of course, if it's well done... I hope this isn't too soon. I hope the BSG creators don't stretch themselves too thin. I hope it doesn't beat the franchise into the ground. Then again, I had those hopes for Voyager and Enterprise too.
