In March of this year, SyFy (you know that network that used to be SciFi Channel and now doesn’t support any real SciFi) CANCELLED the Battlestar Galactica spinoff – Blood and Chrome.
Turns out though that a full pilot has already been produced and we can all see it on Friday November 9th — or at least start to see it.
You see the plan from the braniacs at Syfy is to have Blood and Chrome show up as a webisode series. Remember, that back in February of 2011, SyFy green lit the two hour pilot. At the time SyFy wrote:

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.

Battlestar Galactica also has a history with Webisodes. Back in 2008, when the show was in one of its lost intra-season hiatuses, we got an aweome webisode series called ‘Face of the Enemy‘. Even earlier, back in 2007 we had the Razor Flashback webisodes, including one that serves as the touchstone for what Blood and Chrome is all about. Adama fighting in the first Cylon war.

We can hardly wait to see Blood and Chrome – and it’s hard to believe that SyFy did not go ahead and produce a full series.
