'Galactica' Prequel on Tap at Sci Fi (http://www.zap2it.com/tv/news/zap-scifi-galacticaprequel,0,6083698.story?coll=zap-news-headlines)


The Sci Fi Channel will delve into the backstory of "Battlestar Galactica" with a new series that looks at the years leading up to humanity's devastation by the Cylons.

The prequel, called "Caprica," heads a list of development projects the cable network unveiled Wednesday. Also in the works are a miniseries based on the book "Chariots of the Gods" and series from Jesse Alexander ("Alias"), Christopher McQuarrie ("The Usual Suspects"), Eric McCormack and Freddie Prinze Jr.

In the prequel, it will be revealed that the cylon robot slaves turned on their masters, but they could not abandon them as per their programming, so they saved them, plugged them into an neural network and used them for power along with a type of fusion... until a hero arose named Thomas A. Anderson who crippled the cylon computer network by sending it a virus called NEO, for Non-Euclidian Object, that routed itself into a non-critical subsystem and reversed the polarity of the Hue 3D Colorspace function resulting in the cylons mistaking red for green and shutting down their defenses, allowing him to sneak in and plant a small tactical nuclear warhead and disable the city of the robots, called Cylon in caprican, which translates as Zero-One because the robots operated in binary.

This resulted in the surviving cylons escaping caprica, switching to a non-collective entity communications system, and using a red monochrome colorspace for predator drones.

SFX have an article about it:

The stories will follow the lives of two families, the Graystones and the Adamas (yes, Edward James Olmos' ancestors) and plans to weave together corporate intrigue, action and sexual politics in the much the same way as its parent series
