It looks as if the long-awaited Battlestar Galactica prequel Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is finally getting released.  The series takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war and centers on a young William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) as he’s assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica.  The show was commissioned following the immense critical success of the Battlestar Galactica series, but word on the show was nearly dead until Syfy announced earlier this year that they would not be picking the show up to series.

There’s a silver lining, though, as the pilot will be broken up into ten 7-12 minute episodes that will be released online starting this week.  The full two-hour version will then air on Syfy early next year, followed by the release of an unrated version on Blu-ray/DVD.  Hit the jump for more, including a new trailer.

News of this new release strategy comes via EW, who reports that the first episode of Blood & Chrome will debut on Machinima this coming Friday.  The remaining episodes will be released over the next four weeks.  This isn’t exactly the ideal scenario for the prequel as I would’ve loved to see the first Cylon war play out over a series, but at least we’ll get to see the pilot/TV movie.

Watch the new trailer below, and catch the first episode on Machinima on November 9th.  So say we all.
