We've got an EXCLUSIVE look at the first four concept images from Syfy's upcoming two-hour pilot movie for Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. The movie focuses on the adventures of a young William Adama during the 10th year of the first Cylon war.

According to an earlier press release, here's what we have to look forward to:

"Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20's and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet ... the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet."

Remember—these are concept images, so the scenes they represent may or may not make it into the final cut of the movie, but they definitely show some interesting directions being considered for what executive producer David Eick calls an "authentic, relentless depiction of combat and the agony and ecstasy of human-Cylon war, which was the hallmark of Battlestar Galactica's early seasons."

We're definitely hoping the Cylon snake (we're told it's called a "Cython") makes the cut.
