Storyline

The first Cylon war has been raging for 10 years and a young Ensign William Adama joins the fleet. He's disappointed not to be assigned to a fighter but to a freighter. His co-pilot, Lt. Coker Fasjovic, isn't too keen on having a rookie flying his aircraft as he has only a short time before he again becomes a civilian. Their cargo is a civilian scientist, Dr. Becca Kelly, but they no sooner leave than she has new orders for them and a new destination. She is less than forthcoming about just what her secret mission is but Adama is keen, particularly as it involves going into Cylon controlled space. Nothing is as it seems however.

Quotes

[first lines]
William Adama: Dear Dad, in your last letter, you questioned whether it's my responsibility to join this fight. The truth is we all became responsible the day we created the Cylons. We're the ones let let these robots become our servants, our trusted helpers and even our friends. We let them into our lives, only to see them repay our trust with a violent revolt against us. I know there's a lot of debate about why they hate us. But in the end, does it really matter? Kill the enemy or be killed. ...

very interesting... very nicely done
13 November 2012 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

So... as I am writing this, Blood and Chrome only exist in a web format.

Basic things you need to know: - Great acting. Not like that teen drama "Caprica". Nope. This is not some overly dramatic, omg i'm so depressed because i'm a cyber robotic teen drama!!! the actors in blood and chrome are, so far, doing their part. Luke Pasquallino, whom until ep 1 of B&C I never heard of, performs a great Husker Adama....young but not naive... just eager to blast some cylons. Cocker, new addition to the Galactica universe, and performed by Cotton, brings a more mature tone to the story.

  • Great sound effects.




  • Story that captures you? Hell yeah!!! Hope they make this into a TV


series... a movie would not be sufficient.
