Katee Sackhoff, who stars as Niko quoted that,
“We had the outline of what the show was going be, but I was in the writers’ room and I got to put what I feel is my fingerprint on the show, which is something that I was looking forward to, so, we know where the show potentially will go for the first three seasons. As an actor, that was new for me. To be a part of those conversations and to have an opinion was cool.”
What Is The Show All About?

On her journey to outer space Niko loses her consciousness and is awaken in a spacecraft named the Salvare. The ship is off course and is heading towards a star named Sirius A. She and other members of the crew attempt to bring the ship back to its course which ends up in a feud among them.
