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.

And then there's The Expanse, based on the book series of the same name. The show, which will debut over two nights on December 14 and 15, is set two hundred years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system. A hardened detective (Thomas Jane) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait) come together for what starts as the case of a missing young woman and evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history. Among the executive producers is Naren Shankar, who started his career on The Next Generation, working his way up the ladder from intern to writer to science consultant. He also wrote for Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
