Veteran Star Trek writer/producer Ronald D. Moore’s Battlestar Galactica wrapped up its fourth and final season earlier this year, but the story of the Colonies is not over. In January SyFy begins airing the new BSG prequel series Caprica (also co-created by Moore). And today SyFy put the entire pilot episode online. You can watch it below.
The Caprica pilot below is a slightly different one that was released on DVD in April (with the most obvious change being the removal of the few bits of nudity). SyFy also says that the version airing January 22nd might also be slightly altered from what is available here.
You can also watch this at syfy.com and get more info on Caprica.
BSG, Lost, Daisies – Best of the Decade
Newsweek and Facebook have teamed up to put together their summary for the decade of the 2000’s. In the category of best 10 TV Dramas, Moore’s Battlestar Galactica ranked #5, and JJ Abrams & Damon Lindelof’s Lost ranked #2. And in the category of Best 10 TV Comedies, Pushing Daisies, created by Trek vet writer/producer Bryan Fuller, was ranked #10.
There is one more Trek connection to the Newsweek ‘Decade in Rewind’ feature. Star Trek director JJ Abrams wrote an essay for Randy Pausch for the 10 People Who Died Too Young list.
