'Caprica' takes place 50 years before the events of 'Battlestar Galactica,' which recently concluded its four-season run on Syfy. The pilot episode is already available on DVD and features Eric Stoltz as Daniel Graystone, the man who created the first Cylon race. After his teenage daughter is killed in a terrorist attack, he looks for a way to bring her back as an artificial being. The series will premiere on Syfy on Friday, January 22, 2010.
