Season 1

Caprica is an American science fiction television series created by Remi Aubuchon, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick and years before the events seen in Battlestar Galactica, which tells the story of how Colonial humanity first created the robotic cylons, who would later plot to destroy humans in retaliation for their enslavement.

The series premiered in the USA on Syfy on 22 January, 2010, although an extended version of the pilot premiered exclusively on DVD and digital download on 21 April, 2009.

Caprica premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Action channel on Tuesday 15 June 2010, at 18h00. New episodes air weekly. There are 20 episodes in the first season, including the two-part pilot.

The first season will go on hiatus after the 9th episode (which airs on 10 August, 2010) to accommodate a corresponding hiatus in the United States. The series returns in the USA in October, 2010.

Synopsis

Set 58 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families - the Graystones and the Adamas - as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the peaceful 12 Colonies, living in a society close to our own.

Entangled in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe, blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics.

Caprica will deliver, intrigue, political backbiting and family conflict in television's first science fiction family saga.

Daniel Graystone, a computer engineering genius, owns a large corporation that is spearheading the development of artificial intelligence.

His unwavering professional pursuits are driven to extreme measures when personal tragedy strikes him and his wife Amanda: their strong-willed daughter Zoe dies in a terrorist bombing fuelled by an underground religious dogma.

Unbeknownst to her parents, the teenager had also been dabbling in these radical teachings, which were secretly propagated by her school's headmistress, Sister Clarice Willow.

Also living on Caprica but deeply entrenched in a cultural heritage that sets them apart from the rest of civilization, is the Adama clan.

The family is helmed by Joseph Adama, a renowned criminal defence attorney – with questionable ties and sometimes-devious methods – and father to William and Tamara.

When Joseph's wife and daughter perish in the same attack that befell Zoe Graystone, Joseph's path soon crosses Daniel's, and the two become united in their grief.

Soon lines are drawn that will determine the fate of the human race.
