Universal Cable Productions said Thursday that it plans to release "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Unrated Edition" in late February.
The new spinoff film, which debuts Friday on the premium YouTube channel Machinema Prime, stars Luke Pasqualino as a young Captain William Adama.
It will be released on demand, digital download, DVD and Blu-ray Feb. 19, 2013.
The latest chapter in the "Battlestar Galactica" franchise follows Adama as he leads humankind's colonial fleet in an interstellar battle against the Cylons, a race of sentient robots created by humans. When he finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, officer Coker -- played by "Alcatraz" actor Ben Cotton -- the two must overcome differences to save the entire armada of starships.
