Brent Spiner, Star Trek: The Next Generation's beloved android Data, will be working once again with longtime Star Trek writer-producer Brannon Braga. Spiner has signed on to star in the pilot of Braga's new series Threshold for CBS.
Zap2It reports that Spiner has joined Carla Gugino in the series, which focuses on a team of scientists and military officers who make first contact with extraterrestrial life. In addition to Braga, who talked briefly about the series earlier this month (story), the production staff includes writer-director David Goyer of Blade: Trinity.
Recently seen in Academy Award-nominated film The Aviator, Spiner also appeared in the hit science fiction film Independence Day, on this television show Night Court and on UPN's Deadly Games, his last regular series appearance.
Spiner also filmed a trilogy of episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise this season as Arik Soong, an ancestor of another character created by Spiner, Data's creator Noonien Soong.
