'Caprica' - Essential Information

What 'Caprica' Is About:

The prequel of the Cylon/human conflict told in Battlestar Galactica. Daniel Graystone and Joseph Adama both lose their daughters in a train bombing. When Graystone discovers his daughter, Zoe, had created a virtual version of herself, he becomes obsessed with bringing her avatar into the real world, using a robotic body known as a Cylon.

Status of 'Caprica':


Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore parlayed the huge success of the Syfy series into a spin-off that told the beginnings of the Cylons. A key figure behind the series is writer/producer Jane Espenson.

Flavor of 'Caprica':

Not the gritty, epic space opera Battlestar was, but even in this more "domestic" setting it still seeks to explore the dilemmas, mysteries, and violent conflicts built into human nature and identity.
