The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade-long war in favor of the desperate fleet. Executive producers: David Eick and Michael Taylor. Written by Michael Taylor from a story by David Eick, Taylor and Bradley Thompson and David Weddle. A production of Universal Cable Productions."
This first thing that jumps out at me, is that Ronald Moore is not on staff of Blood & Chrome. Then the line about the series picking up at the end of the war borthers me. To be honest, I wish they would not started it off at the end of the war, but my using Adama's character as the main led boxes them into the last year of the war due to flashback scenes from Razor.
I would like to see the apex of the war, not the end. After all, if the series is picked up, then are the writers are boxed into switching the series focus from the war to the aftermath? I don't want a series that looks back at the war, and is more about post-war Colonial society rebuilding than combat. Since the original 1970's BSG series, we, fans have wanted to see the Cylon War.
However, I must learn to trust the forces at work on Blood & Chrome, after all, they created BSG and it was epic...so this should be too, right?
