Caprica to debut in early 2007?

A recent headline from Mediaweek adds more fuel to the fire in speculation regarding Caprica. During an executive pitch for Sci Fi Pulse a date for the series was supposedly slipped.

"Other programs in the hopper include a reality/competition series, Who Wants to be a Superhero, which is a bit like American Idol in tights and a cape; a number of documentary specials co-produced by NBC News under the rubric Sci Fi Investigates; and the aforementioned Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, set to bow in the first quarter of 2007."

With all the talk going back and forth about Caprica we're not sure what to make of this. Also, it could be interpreted that Caprica might launch online through this new Sci Fi plus broadband network. Perhaps once the dust settles we will have a more accurate picture.

Edit: The broadband network is Sci Fi "Pulse" and not "Plus" as I previously indicated. Also, the first quarter of 2007 seems highly unlikely as the show is in the early script stages (pre-pilot).
