Source: TV Squad

A few more details have emerged about the Battlestar Galactica spin-off that's in the works. Don Kaplan of the New York Post writes that first drafts of scripts for the series, called Caprica, have shown up at the SciFi network's offices, and gets a few details from BSG creator Ron More on what the show is going to be about.

According to Moore, Caprica will take place 50 years before BSG and will be about the creation of the Cylons. The show will center around two families: one who owns the Microsoft-esque coporation that develops the Cyclon technology, and the family of Adama's father, a lawyer who starts to oppose the Cylons' creation. "It's a family drama and a political drama about corporations and politics. It's almost [more] like a sci-fi soap than it is an action-adventure series," Moore tells Kaplan.

I would love to see this green-lighted. Thanks for the update.

Watching Ron Moore and company take on a separate but related world to BSG would be exciting.
