Syfy has been kind enough to infect us with a trailer for "Helix," the network's new thriller from "Battlestar Galactica" creator and executive producer, Ronald D. Moore. The series stars Billy Campbell as "Dr. Alan Farragut," the head of the Centers For Disease Control's Special Pathogens Branch. Oh yes, we're dealing with an outbreak here!

The series also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Kyra Zagorsky, Jordan Hayes, Catherine Lemieux, Neil Napier, Mark Ghanime, and recently added Syfy vet, Jeri Ryan to the cast. Ryan will be portraying "Constance Sutton," the "charming and savvy" chief operating officer of Ilaria Corporation, owner of Arctic Biosystems.

According to Syfy, "Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind's salvation...or total annihilation."

The series premieres Friday, January 10 at 10 p.m. ET.
