Set ten years into the Cylon War, it focuses on then-Ensign William Adama, who has been assigned to then-new ''Galactica'' fresh out of the academy. The irascible newbie is more than a little irritated to be assigned to be a Raptor "bus driver" rather than a Viper jock. However, things become much more interesting fast when the routine "milk run" he and his more experienced but surly co-pilot Lt. Coker Fasjovik are assigned to turns out to be a cover for a top-secret mission involving the mysterious Dr. Becca Kelly.

* CallBack: "Are you alive?"

The echo is inverted, as in this prequel she is literally questioning Dr. Kelly's status. In the pilot miniseries of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', which takes place decades later, the question is more philosophical]]

* CosmeticallyAdvancedPrequel: An example that only briefly appears. ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaBloodAndChrome'' takes place some time before ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' -- something like 30-40 years prior, considering the main character's age. In ''Blood and Chrome'', a pre-mission briefing is conducted using something like virtual reality goggles. By the time the main series rolls around, plastic figurines on a two-dimensional map are used instead.

* MildlyMilitary: The Colonials. The entire plot is basically driven by an Ensign who thinks he can order around a Lieutenant. Although to be fair, given that they're 10 years into a brutal war standards might have slipped a little.
** Position outweighs rank. Coker outranked Adama, but as pilot, Adama was in charge of the Raptor. Also, Coker was acting chicken, while Adama was focused on completing their assigned mission.
