Battlestar Galactica fans, mark your calendars. Syfy has finally given us a premiere date for the pilot turned web series Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, and it’s coming up fast. After a winding path the prequel wound up as a web series, with Syfy promising it would bring it to TV eventually. They're making good on the promise and will air it as a two-hour TV movie next month.

The date for the world television premiere of Blood & Chrome is February 10 at 9 p.m. EST. If you think you have seen it all already, think again. Deadline says that the full movie will include additional scenes that were not included in the web series. Hot on the heels of the TV premiere, Blood & Chrome will become available on DVD and Blu-ray as well as VOD. The release date for that is set for February 19th.

Blood & Chrome focuses on the young William Adama (played by Luke Pasqualino) during the time of the first Cylon War. It comes from a team comprised mostly of Battlestar veterans from Syfy’s original series including executive producers David Eick and Michael Taylor, and was based on a story written by the two EP’s along with Bradley Thompson and David Weddle. Originally the pilot was meant as a potential series, but when that didn’t work out it was taken to the web instead. It’s taken a while, but we’ll finally get to see it where was originally intended to air.
