Caprica: Birthplace of the Cylons

Yesterday, the Sci Fi Channel announced that it will develop a new series called Caprica. The series will be a prequel to my favorite currently running show, the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica; it will take place about 50 years before Battlestar and chronicle the breakthrough in robotics that will lead to development of the Cylons and, ultimately, the near-total annihilation of the human race. The show is to be executive produced by Battlestar EPs Ronald D. Moore and David Eick---24 screenwriter Remi Aubuchon will pen the pilot---which leads me to believe that the series will focus on character drama and which has me feeling optimistic about the show. As Ketan so succintly put it, "Yay!"

There's no word yet on when the series will debut, but I'm guessing it will be sometime in mid-to-late 2007.
