Ron Moore’s new series Helix.
Something really, really creepy is going on in the first teaser trailer for Ronald D. Moore’s (Battlestar Galactica) new Syfy series Helix.
The network has revealed the first peek at Moore’s The Thing-esque series, which follows a team of several dozen scientists working at a large Arctic research facility. The scientists apparently stumble upon something that could potentially destroy the world, leading to “a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.”
The teaser sets the scene, with a slow pan through the snowy landscape offering a peek at the research base. We then cut to a pristine, white-washed research lab, where a scientist takes off his mask to reveal … something creepy leaking off his face.
What is that black ooze? We don’t know, but we really want to find out.
The series is set to debut later this year. While we wait, check out the trailer below:
New Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer
This Week in Star Trek:
The final full-length trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness has been released, featuring a ton of new footage—including the confrontation that leads to the Enterprise crashing back down to Earth.
Abrams has been peeling back more and more with each passing trailer, and this one shows off a whole lot. It’s mostly focused on Benedict Cumberbatch’s mysterious baddie John Harrison, and Kirk’s (Chris Pine) quest for vengeance after he takes out a Starfleet office in London.
We get to see a face-off between the Enterprise and Harrison’s ship, and the good guys are obviously outmanned. Anyone worried about those first few trailers being too Earth-bound, worry no longer. This film looks to be packed with deep-space action.
The new footage also includes some new hints at Cumberbatch’s true identity (Khan?), so give us your best guess below.
Star Trek Into Darkness opens May 17. Watch the trailer below.
TREK AUTHORS NOMINATED FOR AWARDS
Two popular Star Trek authors have been nominated for Scribe Awards.
The Scribe Awards, which recognize excellence in the field of writing for media tie-in franchises, are presented by The International Association of Media Tie-in Writers (IAMTW).
The authors nominated are Greg Cox and David Mack.
Cox was nominated in the Original Novel category for Star Trek: The Rings of Time; an original series story about a dilithium mining colony on Skagway, a moon of Klondike-6, which is threatened by the disintegration of Klondike-6′s rings.
Mack was nominated for Star Trek: The Next Generation – Cold Equations, Book 1: The Persistence of Memory. In The Persistence of Memory, Data’s android brother B-4 has been stolen and Captain Picard and his crew need to find out the reason why and by whom B-4 was stolen.
The Scribe Awards winners will be announced in July at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Congratulations to both Cox and Mack for their nominations.

Korben Dallas: Negative, I am a meat popsicle
4. Zorg: I don’t like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes. Honor? Huh! Honor’s killed millions of people, it hasn’t saved a single one.
3. Leeloo: I don’t know love. I was built to protect not to love, so there is no use for me other than this.
2. DJ Ruby Rhod: What’s wrong with you? What you screamin’ for? Every 5 minutes there’s somethin’, a bomb or somethin’. I’m leavin’. bzzzz.
1.Priest Vito Cornelius: You’re a monster, Zorg.
Zorg: I know.
