Yet More Geekery

BSG is arguably the greatest sci-fi show in history. So this news is either really good or really bad:

SCI FI Channel announced the development of Caprica, a spinoff prequel of its hit, Battlestar Galactica, in presentations to advertisers in New York on April 26. Caprica would come from Galactica executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, writer Remi Aubuchon (24) and NBC Universal Television Studio.

Caprica would take place more than 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 will weave together corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics into television’s first science fiction family saga, the channel announced.

It could be wicked pissah, or it could be Joanie Loves Chachee. I’m wagering on the former, but it means that the same crew that makes BSG has to be directly involved in both shows to make sure they remain the pissahest.

In other awesome news, a certain Ms. Morena Baccarin will be on Stargate SG-1 next season. Hiyoooo!

  1. i am betting on the pissah.

    though i think they could save a lot of money that could otherwise be devoted to hybrid cars if people would just read asimov.

  2. Yeah, but there aren’t enough used copies of the Robot series for 12-15 million new readers, so they’d have to kill an old growth forest to make new books, which would make Mother Gaia cry.
