Watch the first of our exclusive video blogs for Caprica

SCI FI Wire will be posting exclusive preview video blogs over the next few days from the upcoming DVD release of Caprica, the prequel series to Battlestar Galactica.

Today: "What the Frak Is Caprica?" in which the creators of the show discuss its world and the relation of the new story to the Battlestar universe.

Caprica is set more than 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica in a world at the peak of its power, grappling with new science and technologies and the issues they create. The series stars Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales, Paula Malcomson and Polly Walker.

Caprica will premiere on SCI FI Channel in 2010, but the uncut and unrated pilot will be available on DVD (via Universal Home Entertainment) and as a digital download (via Universal Cable Productions) next Tuesday.

Check back on Friday for the second Caprica video blog.
