Katee Sackhoff, who a decade ago finished her five-year run as pilot “Starbuck” on Sci-Fi (now Syfy) Channel’s Battlestar Galactica, is back in the sci-fi saddle as star of Netflix’s new 10-episode thriller Another Life.
Sackoff plays Niko Breckinridge (no relation to Myra, we hope), the commander of an interstellar mission to a planet which has landed an alien artifact on Earth. Her husband (Justin Chatwin) stays behind to try to make first contact with the artifact.
Like Battlestar Gallactica, Another Life was filmed in British Columbia, Canada. And if the show’s title – or its trailer – seem a bit, well, soap opera-ish, a soap with that very title ran for 878 episodes in the early ‘80s on CBN Cable Network (now Freeform).
The new Another Life dropped today at Netflix.com/AnotherLife.
Battlestar Galactica is currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
