A clip from an upcoming episode of Syfy’s science fiction drama series Caprica features a gay couple in a discussion with their nephew over a dinner table. Fans of Battlestar Galactica, of which Caprica is a spin-off, may recognize the name of a family prominently featured on that series. Sam Adama, played by Sasha Roiz (pictured right), is a gangster and brother to Joseph Adama, a lawyer played by Esai Morales. See the clip here. 

Caprica, set 58 years before Battlestar Galactica, depicts the origins of the genocidal Cylons who would later destroy life on 12 planets colonized by humans. The “Reins of a Waterfall” episode airs Friday, February 5, at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.
