STAR TREK and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA’s Ronald D. Moore is Writing a New Space Drama

After spending years exploring the past in Outlander on Starz, veteran writer and producer Ronald D. Moore has booked a return trip to outer space. Apple has ordered Moore’s new space drama straight-to-series as part of its aggressive entrance into the realm of scripted original programming.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the story, and revealed that the currently untitled series will take place in an alternate timeline where the space race never ended. Beyond that, we don’t really know much about it or even when it will take place within that new timeline. But between Moore’s stints on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and the Battlestar Galactica reboot, there are certain things that we may be able to infer about his next project.

Moore’s strength isn’t simply writing compelling sci-fi stories, it’s his ability to create the complex and flawed characters that inhabit these fantastic worlds. Most of Battlestar Galactica‘s main players were damaged human beings who struggled with their circumstances and their inner demons against a science-fiction backdrop. Additionally, Moore and his creative collaborators used the Battlestar Galactica reboot as a way to offer commentary on modern issues in a way that didn’t feel forced. That’s a very useful skill to bring to the table for any drama series.

Apple hasn’t announced when Moore’s new series will begin production, but it is definitely on our radar.
