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 (, 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 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.
