Some 58 years before the events in Battle Star Galactica, a series of events bring two families together that will have an indelible impact on human-kind. Daniel Graystone is a successful entrepreneur having introduced major advances in technology, most notably the holopad that allows users to immerse themselves in a holographic world of their own designs. Joseph Adama is a Tauron refugee who has successfully established himself on Caprica and is a lawyer for the Tauron gangster community that paid for his legal training. Unbeknown to Graystone, his daughter Zoe has become a member of an organization that has monotheistic religious beliefs but is regarded as a terrorist organization by some, including the government.

Human beings have apparently received a major upgrade between the original DVD release of the pilot episode and its subsequent broadcast on SyFy. Originally, the contents of the human mind were stated to be only approximately 300 megabytes of data. In the newer version, this has been changed to 100 terabytes via the magic of a cutaway to cover footage in which Zoe is seen from behind. See more »
During the scene when Daniel Graystone is talking to Joseph Adama about bringing Zoe into the "real world", you can see a number of technical textbooks and manuals in the bookcase behind him. They have titles referring to Windows, Linux, Sharkware, and Powerpoint, among other things. See more »
If the show lives up to the pilot, I think you have the makings of real destination TV. I was not a fan of BSG's reboot only because it really became such a hopeless vision. I read all the reviews on how it was a post 9/11 Sci-fi world but it really didn't offer a solution only a dream of a solution. This prequel shows how dreams are perverted. In a very entertaining way, with a great cast. I'm there for the series. Eric Stolz was great. The CGI work was better than average for TV. I need to know more about the fedora wearing Taurons. Also why was there a Ramada on Caprica, as evidenced in the reflection in the coffee shop's door.
