The Battlestar Galactica Prequel Was Always Doomed To Failure And It’s Not The Show’s Fault

Before anyone saw a trailer or knew how Caprica would depict the world of Battlestar Galactica, the general public got to see Alessandra Torresani in a tasteful cheesecake pose, holding an apple. It turns out the important part of the image was the apple, which ties into the franchise’s use of biblical symbolism as her character, Zoe Graystone, would become an Eve-like figure. So it’s not completely cheesecake done for easy marketing, but, well, yes, it is.

It’s also hard to state now, decades later, that this one photo was found everywhere, from the sides of buses to billboards, as SyFy wanted to pull out all the stops to make Caprica a hit.
