Battlestar Galactica prequel set for Fall 2008

The idea for the prequel/spin-off Caprica has been kicking around the Sci-fi network for some time now. I’m glad it was finally greenlit. and while I kinda wished it was a new series, a 2-hour TV movie is fine with me. Last November’s Razor was awesome, and proves the BSG team can pull a lot off in just a couple of hours.

Tuesday’s upfronts for the Sci Fi channel brought both good and bad news for fans of Battlestar Galactica.

The channel has finally given the greenlight to Caprica a prequel to Battlestar, in the form of a two-hour movie/backdoor pilot. The movie is expected to head into production this spring for a fall airing, and if picked up as a series, could be seen by mid-2009. The prequel will take place 50 years before BSG, and executive producer Ron Moore tells TV Guide it will be very different.

“It’s not action-adventure,” he said. “In fact, it’s more like a prime-time soap opera set on a planet. I really like this new world we’ve created. It’s a radically different approach to the sci-fi genre.”

While the “past” looks bright, Moore wasn’t as optimistic about the future of Battlestar beyond its final season. When asked if the end of the television series could be the beginning of a movie franchise, the answer was a pretty resounding no.
