A few days ago we reported that the prequel to Battlestar Galactica entitled Blood and Chrome would be released as a series of webisodes starting November 9th (that’s tonight folks), we also said that the DVD and Blu-ray release wouldn’t be far behind. Now we got the specs for Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Blu-ray which is scheduled for a February 19th release.

Here is the press release…

From Universal Cable Productions and the award-winning producing team of the critically acclaimed series “Battlestar Galactica” comes the all-new Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Unrated Edition. The new spin-off film is packed with spectacular visual effects and cutting edge CGI and stars Luke Pasqualino (“The Borgias”) as a young Captain William Adama in the hard-hitting tale of the first Cylon war. Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome will be available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on February 19, 2013.

Fans will first be able to view Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome when it premieres exclusively on Machinima’s premium channel, Machinima Prime (http://www.youtube.com/MachinimaPrime), beginning November 9, 2012. It will be presented as 10 episode chapters set to run through February 2013 and be followed by a two-hour movie premiere on Syfy. A special never-before-seen unrated version of this explosive broadcast event will then be available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and Digital Download.

An all-new chapter in the “Battlestar Galactica” saga, Blood & Chrome takes place in the midst 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, finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Though Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, “Alcatraz”), the two men must set their differences aside when a routine escort mission with an enigmatic passenger (Lili Bordán, “Silent Witness”) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack allows consumers to watch Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Unrated Edition anytime, anywhere on the platform of their choice. It includes a Blu-ray™ disc, a DVD, a Digital Copy, and UltraViolet™ for the ultimate, complete viewing experience.

According to amazon.com the discs will retail for 24.99 and have the following features.

•    13 Deleted Scenes (including 7 exclusive to Blu-ray)
•    Blood & Chrome: Visual Effects – Discover how the ground-breaking use of visual effects brought the world of Battlestar Galactica to life-like you’ve never seen before!
Blood and Chrome will also air as one feature in late February, a suggestion which I think is better than the webisodes idea. Dont forget to watch the first installment tonight.
