Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.

Although public showing at sci-fi conventions is allowed, licensing restrictions prevent this short from being televised or made available over the Internet. Another 1970s sci-fi cult classic, Space: 1999 (1975), was also the subject of a one-time-only revival in 1999 (Message from Moonbase Alpha (1999)). See more »
Richard Hatch took everything good about the 1978 Battlestar Galactica series and produced The Second Coming. From using the original characters, the story line, terrific special effects, and a powerful musical score, Hatch managed to draw a mega audience of young and old to take a close look at one of Science Fictions almost forgotten landmarks, Battlestar Galactica. The overall message: Love conquers all. The entire production was put together with the dreams and hopes of Hatch, who, spent his own money, motivated the masses, and set out to promote the idea of what a film makers vision can do to the world. Several actors from the original series came together on a tiny budget to make a dream of so many into a reality. One of these actors was the late John Colicos who past away only months after he filmed his scenes. Everyone, for the actors young and old, to the crew of producers, cameramen, and assistants came together and made a labor of love that will withstand the test of time with movie audiences. Hatch's accomplishment is fact that nothing is impossible for the dream makers!
