The love for “Battlestar Galactica” is pretty small in these parts, so I’m including the trailer (helpfully titled “zb39ky44bsg75”) for “Blood and Chrome,” a “BSG” prequel which follows a young William Adama in the first Cylon War, in the Morning Links. Embrace its fracking awesomeness, complete with Trent Reznor and Karen O’s cover of “Immigrant Song,” and hope it becomes a TV movie, not a web series. (i09)
