The Battlestar Galactica prequel will take flight as promised — and soon! Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome will premiere online Friday.

The pilot, which Syfy passed on in March, will air on the YouTube channel Machinima Prime in 10 seven-to-12 minute chapters. After the series concludes in February, Blood & Chrome will premiere on Syfy as a two-hour movie before being released on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD.
