Even before it originally aired, the Battlestar Galactica reboot was surrounded by an air of skepticism, questioning why such an obscure series would even get a second chance. Although I was never a fan of it, the original 1978 scifi series had gained a full cult following over the years, despite the fact that most considered it as a much cheesier knockoff of the Star Wars franchise that predated it. To forever dispel that reputation, the series was given a gritty reboot in 2004 that through it's excellent writing and Cylon filled premise revitalized the series as a scifi staple. The show has gained many fans through TV movies and prequels that have come from the success of the reboot; This is one such prequel.
Set in the tenth year of the First Cylon War, this prequel was originally intended to be part of a full ongoing TV series but never quite made the cut, instead being converted into a 10 part digital series on Machinima, with plans to cut all the episodes into a full length TV movie sometime in 2013. If you've been itching for some more Battlestar Galactica, check out the second episode after the break!
