Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome is a prequel to the 2004 reimagined series that tells the story of William Adama (later Admiral Adama) in his earliest days aboard the Battlestar Galactica. The ships taking flight in the show were conceived to be halfway points between original designs and the updated, modern machines. This Blood and Chrome Raider combines the cockpit-style and panel structure of the Classic Raider with the enlarged engines and evolving scimitar shape of the Modern Raider. Far from mere stopgap though, this ship was a deadly upgrade in-flight speed and attack accuracy!
The ship comes complete with a 16-page magazine packed with in-depth information about Cylon Raider Ship (Blood & Chrome), exclusive behind the scene articles, and an interview with vaunted visual effects artist Doug Drexler.
