Ron Moore of the brilliant re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica is coming back to Syfy with a new show entitled Helix. The thriller follows a group of scientists in the Arctic, who look into a possible disease outbreak. And much like The Thing, they find themselves in a terrifying predicament.

There’s a lot of potential there, especially with Moore at the helm. He excels at intertwining character arcs and plots together. Helix looks to need just that.

Now I’m just hoping our favorite scientist, Gaius Baltar, finds himself in the Arctic offering his charm and paranoia to the team. Why the frak not?

Helix airs sometime this year on Syfy.
