Production has begun in Vancouver on the 2-hour pilot, "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome," Syfy announced.
Universal Cable Productions is producing the project with Syfy utilizing CGI and virtual technology.
"'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," Syfy said in a synopsis Thursday.
"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."
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.
