Now in mourning, the Adamas and friends are visited by Fidelia, who realizes the ways of her father are misplaced and outdated. The Graystones immediately embark on trying to foil the plan in a race against time while being pursued by the GDD. Fidelia manipulates her father and then allows Joseph and Sam to kill him in blood-revenge for Willie, and she assumes his ring and title. With help, Daniel is able to equip a laptop to wirelessly control all Cylons in the vicinity, and four squads of Cylon Marines then drop into the arena by heli-jet. The final battle is a race between the Cylons, Daniel, and the STO, and the Cylons manage to eliminate all but one of the STO terrorists, Olaf, who detonates the vest of explosives he is wearing; however, the resulting damage is localized, and the arena remains largely intact.

Realizing that they could not devote their full time to both Battlestar Galactica and a spinoff, Eick and Ronald D. Moore decided to team with Aubuchon: "We took some of what we had and some of what he had". In a may interview with Dreamwatch Magazine, Remi Aubuchon stated that he originally pitched a series that was an "allegorical story about slavery with robots" when approached by Moore and Eick. Aubuchon elaborated on details about the Battlestar spinoff, saying that William Adama would be 11 years old when the series begins.
Aubuchon described the series as meant to stand on its own from Battlestar Galactica, but that "certain elements have been embedded into the first few episodes of season 3 " of the current series.
The whole thing is tonally very different. On 24 March , Moore discussed the status of Caprica with Salon. Instead of an action-adventure sci-fi piece, it was more of a prime-time soap, a sci-fi " Dallas. It was not going to be space-based, but set entirely on the planet of Caprica.
But it would have sci-fi touches, and it would deal with issues like artificial intelligence and the various schemings and backbitings that you get in the traditional soap opera. Contingent on the performance of the television movie " Razor ", it was reported that Caprica might also see a release in the form of a direct-to-DVD movie to be simultaneously aired on television .
Following the WGA strike , television networks were scrambling to stockpile finished scripts for various productions, placing the finished pilot script for Caprica as a front runner for production. According to the press release, production on additional episodes was to begin Summer with an expected premiere of early Jane Espenson was also announced as show runner, taking over for Ronald D.
Entertainment reported that production on Caprica would begin in Vancouver in July with a "rigorous" eight month shooting schedule. The tour also included interviews with the cast as well as a glimpse at the practical U Cylon prop. It made sense to have a real world version built for those, saving us from having to render and composite the CG version.
Citing unexpected cost overruns, Stern said "We always knew it would be a challenge to bring it in on budget, and the deeper we got into it, the more we realized that if we [stuck to the budget too closely], it was not going to be satisfying. Show runner Jane Espenson also stepped down from her position but stayed on the writing staff. Former Desperate Housewives producer Kevin Murphy joined the staff as Executive Producer and show runner following the mid-season break.
Stern attributed "creative growing pains associated with any first-year program" to the shakeup. In the podcast commentary for the episode " There is Another Sky ", David Eick stated that Syfy executives asked for additional visual effects to be added to existing and future episodes.
This required the creation of new establishing shots depicting Caprica City and additional monies to be allocated to the series which had hitherto relied on minimal VFX. The multi-platform roll out garnered an estimated 1. The episode was watched by 1. The following week, however, the first new episode aired on 29 January to even lower ratings, reaching 1. The "mid-season finale" " End of Line " was viewed by 1.
Moore stated that he "firmly" believed Caprica would receive a second season. Maureen Ryan concluded that "Caprica "began full of promise and boasted a fine cast, but when it returned this fall with new episodes, it remained frustratingly incoherent The latter quality was notably lacking in Caprica. While the creation of the Cylons and the fall of Colonial society is the background for Caprica, the series was compared by Ronald D.
Moore to the nighttime soap Dallas and by David Eick to the film American Beauty and centers more on its characters than science-fiction elements.
