Only a few days ago, we told you about Outcasts, the upcoming BBC sci-fi series—starring BSG's Jamie Bamber—that aims to be a cross between Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek. Well, we got our very first look at Bamber and other cast members, and the pics certainly give off that whole pioneer-on-a-desolate-planet vibe.

A show about a group of individuals building a new life on another planet called Carpathia, Outcasts also stars Ugly Betty's Eric Mabius and Spook's (MI-5 in the U.S.) Hermione Norris. When the series starts, the small band of pioneers will have lost contract with Earth and have to face all sorts of as-yet-undisclosed mysteries.

With Bamber, Mabius and Norris on board, Outcasts will definitely be worth a look come December, when the eight-part series airs on BBC America.

Check out the pictures below. Do they make you look forward to Outcasts?
