Ronald D. Moore might be best known for Battlestar Galactica, but his new adaptation Outlander takes viewers into a whole new world. Adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books, the multi-genre Starz series follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. The first trailer from the series is now available, along with three new images. You wouldn’t expect this series to come from Moore at first glance since this first look is conspicuously free of the science fiction elements he’s become known for, but it’s certainly a unique take on a relationship tale.
Also starring Tobias Menzies and Sam Heughan, Outlander premieres this summer only on Starz. Hit the jump to watch the first Outlander trailer and check out the series’ first images.
Watch the Outlander trailer below, followed by the series’ synopsis and first images (via Starz):
The “Outlander” series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. The series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books by Ronald D. Moore (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”), is currently filming on location in Scotland and is set to premiere on STARZ this Summer. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
