According to Deadline, Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Katee Sackhoff is most known for her work in the sci-fi and horror genres, with her being most known for her role as Captain Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace on the hit space drama Battlestar Galactica. She has since appeared in works like Riddick, Oculus, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Another Life marks a continuation of her relationship with Netflix. Netflix had picked up her A&E drama Longmire after it was canceled and gave it three final seasons before its final cancellation.
