Since Caprica is a prequel to Battlestar Galactica, we know that it has to set up the events of BSG, including young Willie Adama coming of age. But do we actually know how Caprica ends? One site thinks so.

British site Den Of Geek ran a summary of everything we know about Caprica\, and this line caught my eye:

The story arc of the show will take us from the creation of the first Centurion cylons, and is due to end with the very first cylon war.

This was marked as fact, rather than fan speculation, but I can't find any basis for it. The only other place I can see any support for this claim is a speculative comment on Ain't It Cool News from last summer.


My question is, is this even possible? Battlestar Galactica: Razor showed us the last day of the first Cylon war, featuring a grown-up William Adama. Willie Adama is supposed to be nine years old in Caprica, and the first Cylon war supposedly lasted twelve and a half years. So I guess it's barely possible that if the series ends with Willie Adama as a tween or teen, you could see the start of the First Cylon War, if Adama joined the service as a 18-year-old.

In any case, I sort of hope this story is true, since it would actually make Caprica a bit more compelling if it had a defined end point. At the same time, going from the creation of the first Cylon to outright war with the Cylons within just a few years feels a bit speedy. What do you think?
