“Battlestar Galactica” star Katee Sackhoff may have thought twice before enlisting in another space mission, but “Another Life” probably seemed too tempting to turn down. In this promising sci-fi drama, the actor leads a reluctant crew that plans to make first contact — if they don’t kill each other in the process. It takes a while for the character’s inner Starbuck to kick in, but once it does, viewers are in for a pulse-racing, unpredictable ride with nods to everything from “Alien” to “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”

The promising squad is soon in meltdown mode with cameras picking up every painful misstep.
