Pathfinder Infinite

Caprica Caprica Caprica

The Sci Fi Channel has announced that the feature-length pilot for Caprica, the prequel to Battlestar Galactica, will premiere exclusively on DVD April 21.

Set 50 years before BSG, Caprica follows two rival families — the Graystones and the Adamas — bound together by tragedy. Their ensuing struggle will determine the fate of the Colonies.

More from the show’s official description:

“Caprica” is a society rife with advanced technology. Little do they know they are trembling on the brink of the creation of the first cybernetic life-form node, or CYLON.

Passion, intrigue and betrayal set the stage for the coming revolution.

The Graystones and Adamas come from different cultures and wildly different socio-economic backgrounds. Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) is a computer genius and the leading businessman of the 12 Colonies. His wife, Amanda Graystone (Paula Malcolmson) is an elite neurosurgeon. Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) is an immigrant, a lawyer with ties to the mob, and a father who is desperate to reconnect with his estranged son, William (Sina Najafi).

Their bitter rivalry will bring the end of life as they know it.

Their children are the future.
