Syfy just announced air dates for several of its upcoming series, movies and miniseries, and a couple of them caught our attention because of the Star Trek talent attached. For example, the network revealed that Childhood's End, a six-hour event series based on the novel of the same name, will air over three nights on December 14, 15 and 16. The star-studded cast includes Charles Dance, Mike Vogel, Daisy Betts, Yael Stone, Julian McMahon, Osy Ikhile and Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Miles O'Brien, Colm Meaney. It's also just been revealed -- not by Syfy -- that Meaney will play Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness opposite Timothy Spall as the late Sir Ian Paisley in the upcoming drama The Journey.
