Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer Joins Space Opera Miniseries Ascension

fb share tweet share

tricia helferWhen I woke up this morning, nobody explained to me that this was going to be one of the most illogical days in history, with Syfy unveiling one promising project after another to add to their already expansive upcoming schedule. But they can’t just keep greenlighting projects without actually casting some of them. So it’s excellent that today also brings the announcement that one of the network’s most recognizable faces of the past is returning, as Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer has signed on to star in the intriguing space opera miniseries Ascension.

Who better to lead Syfy’s explosive return to science fiction than someone from one of the network’s greatest accomplishments? It’s barely a coincidence that the network’s name changed from The Sci-Fi Channel to Syfy around the same time that Battlestar Galactica left the airwaves. So maybe Helfer will help to usher in a new era of dynamic space fiction. Ascension is the first miniseries Syfy has developed since 2009, and Helfer’s casting offers us a few more details about this potentially amazing story.
