From the executive producers of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA comes this engaging prequel set 50 years prior to its parent series. On the planet of Caprica, new developments in the fields of artifical intelligence and mechanical engineering are beginning to have shocking implications for the future of the human race. At the heart of these new, ethically questionable breakthroughs are Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) and Daniel Greystone (Eric Stoltz), two powerful men brought together by the tragic loss of their family members only to be torn apart by their differing approaches to salving their grief.
