Another Life is a new Netflix sci fi tv show offering, starring Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair, about an alien artefact landing on Earth. Looking forward to watching it! Via the Verge:
The series follows Commander Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff), who’s selected to lead a mission to a distant planet after an alien ship touches down on Earth. All the tropes of a “reluctant leader setting off on a dangerous mission”-type of show are present: there are promises to loved ones that she’ll be back, forlorn staring out into space, and members of the crew musing about their place in history. Meanwhile, her husband (played by Justin Chatwin) is tasked with figuring out where the artifact came from, and it looks as though there are bigger ramifications for the fate of humanity thrown in for good measure. Along the way, alien monsters, crew members apparently developing strange powers, and parties on the flight deck also factor into the story.
