Plot Synopsis

Set 50 years before "Battlestar Galactica," two rival families -- the Graystones and the Adamas -- are bound together by tragedy. "Caprica" is a society rife with advanced technology. Little do they know they are trembling on the brink of the creation of the first cybernetic life-form node (CYLON). The Graystones and Adamas come from different cultures and wildly different socio-economic backgrounds. Daniel Graystone is a computer genius and the leading businessman of the 12 Colonies while his wife, Amanda Graystone, is an elite neurosurgeon. Joseph Adama is an immigrant, a lawyer with ties to the mob, and a father who is desperate to reconnect with his estranged son, William. Their ensuing struggle will determine the fate of the 12 Colonies, and their bitter rivalry will bring the end of life as they know it.
