Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel from executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, will have its world premiere exclusively on DVD on April 21 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

The feature-length program will be available on DVD as a limited-edition uncut and unrated version before the series' broadcast premiere on the ScyFy in 2010.

Here's how the project is decribed:

"Caprica begins a brand new epic saga that continues the franchise's commitment to thought-provoking storytelling and extraordinary characters. Set over 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica, Caprica is a world at the peak of its power, grappling with new science and technologies and the issues they create."

The series will star Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales, Paula Malcomson and Polly Walker.

"If Battlestar Galactica offered us a way to shatter the conventions of space opera, Caprica will be a show which will challenge the conventions of science fiction storytelling as a whole," Moore said.

"Part sweeping soap, part meditation on the dangerous moral ramifications of artificial intelligence, this is a truly unique opportunity to continue telling stories which will be as daring and shocking as the best of Galactica -- and yet will be altogether different from Galactica," Eick said.
