This takes place at least 20 years after the events of the Battlestar prequel series Caprica, with a young ensign William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) being stationed on the Battlestar Galactica ten years into the first Cylon War. He's eager to fly a viper because gets assigned to an old raptor transport instead. The mechanic is a gruff guy named Coker Fasjovik (Ben Cotton). When Adama asks what happened to his old pilot he gestures to his bloodied hands and says "I'm cleaning him up". Their assignment is to to escort Dr Becca Kelly on a secret mission to an ice resort planet that had been taken over by the Cylons early in the war. Once there, they are to rendezvous with a marine depoyment--but when they get to the ice cave find only dead bodies. Then, they are attacked by a huge, fifteen foot eel-like creature that bites Coker. Before it can do more damage a lone figure drops in, firing, and kills it. He's the only marine left alive and explains that his creature is the result of the Cylon experiments in cybernetics. The creature is part animal and part machine. It's what he's been eating all these months. He takes a bite and spits out a piece of metal. He leads the trio to the safety of an abandoned ski resort but they are soon discovered by the Cylons. There's also a room filled with "spare" human body parts, so clearly the Cylons are experimenting with their form. These aren't the normal looking "old Centurians". The first one we see has an almost human looking face and feels pain when it dies. Then, there's another, much more humanoid Cylon that's a nod to Jonathan Harris' Lucifer from the original '78 version. There's some great visuals, lots of action, and it's interesting seeing Adama before he gets all scarred and jaded. I can see this being a decent enough series, though it would probably end up being along the lines of Space: Above & Beyond.
