    This deals with possible 3rd season stuff. Tried to be as cryptic as possible in the title for those who might not even want a hint... :)

    Lawless Joins Galactica Cast

    SCI FI Channel announced that Lucy Lawless joins the cast of its original series Battlestar Galactica in the upcoming third season. Lawless will become a recurring cast member, reprising her role as D'Anna Biers in a 10-episode arc. The third season begins production in Vancouver, Canada, in April.

    Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) first appeared on Galactica in the second-season episode "Final Cut," playing investigative journalist Biers, who arrived on the Galactica to do an expose on alleged crew misconduct that resulted in the death of four civilians. Eventually, the audience learns that Biers is actually one of the human-looking Cylon agents, who was sent to Galactica on a covert reconnaissance mission.

    Lawless' second guest appearance will air on Feb. 24 in the episode "Downloaded," which gives viewers their first real glimpse into the Cylon world. (The second half of season two of Galactica premiered Jan. 6.)

    Lawless joins a Galactica cast that includes Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Grace Park. The series is executive-produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, who was instrumental in originally casting Lawless in the role of Xena. Battlestar Galactica, from NBC Universal Television Studio, airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

    Really nothing exciting about this. As the story says, she was on before....I expected her return.

    not sure how much of a spoiler it is either - it's scifi.com's #1 headline at the moment :)

    I didn't even recognize her in that episode until someone mentioned it in the thread. She looked great!

    I thought her voice sounded familiar, but didn't realize it was her. She looks much different with blonde hair.

    according to something I read somewhere (i.e. I'm too lazy to go look it up), it was the first time on TV that she'd used her native NZ accent.

    Worked for me :)
