The first trailer for the BBC's highly anticipated sci-fi series Outcasts is out, and after watching it a couple of times we thought—does it want to be Firefly? Maybe a little ... and maybe it wants to be every sci-fi series you've ever seen all at once. But why not take a look and make up your own mind?

Looking at the trailer, we got a bit of that Firefly, Battlestar: Galactica, Stargate and even Star Wars mashup vibe that the creators of the series seem to have been striving for.

The story centers around a group of Earth survivors trying to build a new life on Planet Carpathia. From what we're seeing here, things may not go as smoothly as a baby's behind for our group of pioneers—but that's what makes for interesting TV, right?

Outcasts stars Jamie Bamber (Battlestar: Galactica), Hermione Norris (Spooks) and Eric Mabius (Resident Evil, Ugly Betty). There's no air date yet for either the BBC or BBC America, but we hope it won't be too long before we get to see the series on our TVs.

So what do you think? Does the trailer make you even more excited about seeing Outcasts?
