Fox has bumped up the air date and released a few gallery images of the cast for its upcoming Virtuality TV movie, which was originally a pilot for a sci-fi series, from Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore. You can see more after the jump.

The movie will air on Fox at 8 p.m. on June 26 (not July 4, as originally scheduled), and will be available as an HD broadcast as well.

Here's how Fox describes the movie: The crew of the Phaeton is approaching the go/no-go point of its epic 10-year journey through outer space. With the fate of Earth in the crew's hands, the pressure is intense. The best bet for helping the crew members maintain their sanity is the cutting-edge virtual-reality technology installed on the ship. It's the perfect stress-reliever until they realize a glitch in the system has unleashed a virus on to the ship. Tensions mount as the crew decides how to contain the virus and complete their mission. Meanwhile, their lives are being taped for a reality show back on Earth.

The cast includes Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Commander Frank Pike, Sienna Guillory as Rika Goddard, James D'Arcy as Dr. Roger Fallon, Ritchie Coster as Dr. Jimmy Johnson, Erik Jensen as Dr. Jules Braun, Omar Metwally as Dr. Adin Meyer, Kerry Bishe as Billie Kashmiri, Joy Bryant as Alice Thibadeau, Nelson Lee as Kenji Yamamoto, Jose Pablo Cantillo as Manny Rodriguez, Gene Farber as Val Orlovsky, Clea Duvall as Sue Parsons and Jimmi Simpson as Virtual Man.
