Earlier this week, we were ecstatic to learn that 'Battlestar Galatica's' long-awaited prequel series 'Blood & Chrome' would finally make its debut this Friday, November 9, albeit not in the full-series pickup we had hoped for. The pilot movie will instead be divided into 10 short episodes, to be displayed on Machinima before debuting in its entirety on Syfy next year. With that in mind, how would you like to see the first harrowing clip of a young William Adama in action?

It's been a long time coming, but it seems 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel 'Blood & Chrome' will finally see the light of day. Machinima will host the debut of the first of 10 installments this Friday online, but why wait that long when we've been waiting since 2010? The first official clip has hit the web, featuring a young Adama (Luke Pasqualino) kicking Cylon ass, dogfight style! Oh, how we missed 'Battlestar Galactica' space battles.

‘Blood & Chrome’ acts as a prequel to Ron Moore's ‘Battlestar Galactica’ reboot, highlighting the early years of the Human-Cylon war, in which a young William Adama serves as a viper pilot, alongside battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton).  ‘Blood & Chrome’ was green-lit for a pilot in October 2010, but didn’t deliver the finished product to Syfy until November 2011 because of lengthy post-production and effects.

Take a look at the new clip from Machinima below, and be sure to tune in for the first installment of 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' this Friday online! Tell us what you want to see in the comments!
