A Sneak Preview of "Caprica"

SciFi has released a "sneak peek" scene from Caprica, the upcoming prequel series to Battlestar Galactica that will follow that show's final season after it ends in March. Check it out. I spent a chunk of the holidays reading the bootleg script of Caprica's pilot episode that's been floating around the internet, and I gotta say...it's really impressive. It's a far remove stylistically from the first series, and only tangentially related to its predecessor thematically. (Caprica purports to document the birth of the Cylons, decades before the destruction of the titular planet.)

But the ideas of faith, family, and power are still potently mixed together in the new script; you see the fingerprints of Galactica creator Ron Moore everwhere. If I were choosing a sneak preview to release, I doubt I'd have chosen this scene...but it does give you a sense of just how different Caprica's going to be.

First, though...January 16 and the end of Battlestar. If you haven't been regularly checking out the surprisingly good webisodes and the mystery site, I suggest you get to it!

I was searching for the seven Caprica Preview Clips that had been released and I came across this. It is a very detailed Caprica review by someone that has seen the pilot.
