New 'Helix' trailer filled with thrills

A new trailer for Syfy's upcoming thriller "Helix" shows the team of scientists who could save the world assembling in the Arctic.

"What's it doing to him," Billy Campbell's Dr. Alan Farragut asks as he and others look over a victim.

"It's changing him," another scientest answers.

"Into what?"

Into ... something ... really ... nasty. A virus is changing people into zombies, aliens or some other kind of supercharged killers.

"Helix" could be something we've seen before, but it comes from "Battlestar Galactica" creator Ron Moore so I have to say it's the first Syfy drama in quite a long time that I am actually looking forward to seeing.

According to Syfy, the scientests are "pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind's salvation ... or total annihilation."

"Helix" also stars Kyra Zagorsky as Dr. Julia Walker, Jordan Hayes as Dr. Sarah Jordan, Hiroyuki Sanada as Dr. Hiroshi Hatake, Catherine Lemieux as Dr. Doreen Boyle, Neil Napier as  Dr. Peter Farragut, Mark Ghanime as Major Sergio Balleseros and Meegwun Fairbrother as Daniel Aerov.

"Helix" premieres at 9 p.m. CT Jan. 10 on Syfy.

Moore serves as exec producer with Lynda Obst ("Contact") and Steven Maeda ("Lost," "CSI: Miami," "The X-Files").
