Lifting the theme of Original Sin, the art reveals that Zoe has taken a bite out of the forbidden fruit and starts the battle of humanity.
A slightly similar but different poster of "Caprica" is released as the key art for the SyFy series. Featuring actress Alessandra Torresani as Zoe Graystone, the poster bears the tag "The future of humanity begins with a choice". Executive VP of the network, Mark Stern, said, "There's something really interesting about the idea of Zoe and the Eve metaphor."
Serving as the prequel of "Battlestar Galactica", "Caprica" deals with the question "When is too much knowledge a bad thing?". It goes back to the time when the invention of Cylon was thought of and two powerful patriarchs, Joseph Adama and Daniel Greystone, are in duel for the war of humanity.
The series is scheduled to air its two-hour pilot on January 22, 2010. The pilot has actually been released as a standalone DVD on April 21 but eight of the episodes will only be aired on SyFy until March. Taking a hiatus, the nine remaining episodes will be aired some time in the second half of 2010.
If the math is done, there are only 19 hours worth of season 1, which is an hour short from the original order. "They had to cut an episode out of the show because they wanted to keep the quality of the show as high as they could, so they put more money into it, but it still wasn't quite enough so they had to cut out an episode," Stern explained.
