Tricia Helfer Is Latest Battlestar Galactica Alum to Join Ron Moore's NBC Pilot

The more, the merrier. Battlestar Galactica developer/executive producer Ron Moore has tapped a third cast member from the hit Syfy series — Tricia Helfer — to join his latest sci-fi project, the NBC pilot 17th Precinct.

Set in the fictional town of Excelsior, where magic and supernatural elements rule over science, the drama project revolves around the cops at the local 17th Precinct. Helfer will play Morgana, a necromancer (the magical equivalent of a coroner) who is an expert at manipulating the potions, tools, herbs and spells of her trade.
