The two latest installments of the Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome prequel series have arrived (you can also catch up on the first two here).  Blood and Chrome follows the pre-BSG exploits of Commander Adama (a sort of “Portrait of the Commander as a Young Man” if you will) and takes places during the first Cylon war.  The series picks up ten years into the war effort, where the young and cocksure Adama (Luke Pasqualino), call-sign Husker, gets thrown into a covert op during his first “milk run.”  Joining him is his surly and war-weary co-pilot Coker (Ben Cotton) as well as a Dr. Kelly (Lili Bordan), who draws the others into her work on a secret mission.  Hit the jump to watch the episodes.
