New information of Caprica, Ron Moore and David Eick's much-anticipated prequel series to Battlestar Galactica, is hitting the web, and TheFeed is ready to pass along the info!
Here's what TV Addict is reporting:
Caprica is set 51 years before the planet goes nuclear.
The show will portray the inhabitants of Caprica as a seedy bunch, "reading like an episode of HBO’s The Wire."
The pilot is filled with political intrigue, racial prejudice, religious zealots, "and a seriously cool take on Second Life courtesy of (the fictional company) Graystone Industries million dollar idea, the HoloBand."
Father and billionaire scientist Daniel Graystone is busy worrying that, "his company is on the verge of losing the government contract for the Robot Super-soldier and Meta-Cognitive Processor after wasting five years and half a billion cubits."
His wife, Amanda, is cheating on him with his chief rival Tomas Vergis (a Tauron).
His daughter Zoey joins an organization called, 'Soldiers of One' -- "a monotheistic religious group that advocates the worship of a single, all-knowing, all powerful God whose mission is to, 'drive out the many Gods.'"
Act one ends with a violent act of terrorism that kills Ben and Zoey as well as innocent bystanders Shannon and Tamara, wife and daughter of Joseph Adams. Cue world beats opening credits.
Graystone and Adams befriend each other in grief and decide to use the technology at Graystone Industries to download both daughters' consciences into the cybernetic life-form nodes (or Cylons) that are currently in R&D at the company.
By the end of the pilot, Adams and Graystone are enemies, torn apart by ethical differences.
