It’s been a long time since the excellent sci-fi remake Battlestar Galactica came to a close, but executive producer Ronald D. Moore has now finally gotten not one but two new series to television. He’s currently filming the first season of Starz’s Outlander book series adaptation, but before that hits the airwaves we’ll see Moore’s Syfy series Helix. A new full-length trailer for the thriller has been released online, and it looks very much like a TV series adaptation of The Thing.

As one can surmise, things do not go well.
