Hardened Battlstar Galactica fans were given a surprising answer to their request for an encore to their beloved series as creators Ronald D. Moore and David Eick turned back time to show how the troubles between the Twelve Colonies and their Cylon foe began.

The series Caprica tells the story of the rise of the Cylons and continues BSG’s high production values and we’ve got a look behind the scenes at the second half of the series which is out on DVD today.

The battle continues in the second part of this superb sci-fi drama as the story of how the murderous cylons came into existence continues to unfold. See how Daniel Graystone’s (Eric Stoltz, Pulp Fiction, Mask) research into A.I. expands alongside Joseph Adama’s (Esai Morales, TV’s 24 and Jericho) journey into the ethics of science, with the tension between the two rival dynasties building towards the dramatic and chilling conclusion. CAPRICA: PART 2 delves deeper into the events leading up to the beginning of Battlestar Galactica and offers unparalleled insight into the compelling affairs of Caprica.
