[show]The series was created from two separate ideas. In 2005, writer Ronald D. Moore and producer David Eick (who had made the remake of Battlestar Galactica) announced they were planning to make a spin-off prequel series called "Caprica" which was set at the time when humanity first created the Cylons. Although they had a vague idea of what the series would entail, they were too busy working on "Battlestar Galatica" to develop it further at that time. Some months later, a separate idea about artificial intelligence and using robots as slaves was pitched to NBC/Universal by Remi Aubuchon. Universal did not pick up Aubuchon's concept by itself but felt it would work within the realm of Moore's premise for the "Caprica" series. At Universal's suggestion, Moore and Eick then met with Aubuchon and their ideas were merged together.
- The Caprican national anthem is sung by Mark Donnelly, who regularly sings the anthem at Vancouver Canucks games.
- A key plot component of this series is Daniel Graystone's search for the soul of his murdered daughter Zoe. Graystone is portrayed by Eric Stoltz, who also appeared in Killing Zoe.
