Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming science fiction series Another Life starring Battlestar Galactica s Katee Sackhoff. The 10 episode series premieres on July 25 and it looks like a fun cross between the first contact movie Arrival and Syfy Channel's Dark Matter .
The series follows Commander Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff), who is selected to lead a mission to a distant planet after a foreign ship touches the earth. All the troops of a "reluctant leader who sits on a dangerous mission" type of the show are present: there are promises to loved ones that she will be back, lost and staring into space, and the members of the crew mutter about their place in history. At the same time, her husband (played by Justin Chatwin) is tasked with finding out where the artifact came from, and it looks like there are greater ramifications for mankind's destiny smoothly thrown. Along the way, crew members obviously develop strange forces, and parties on the flight deck are also involved in the story.
The series seems to have the feel of some of the great, grimly sci-fi science fiction programs of the early 2000s, as Andromeda Firefly Stargate SG-1
