Former Xena: Warrior Princess star Lucy Lawless has signed on for a 10-episode story arc on Sci Fi Channel's red-hot Battlestar Galactica.
Lawless will reprise the role she took this season as an investigative journalist who turns out to be an undercover agent for the villainous Cylon faction. Lawless' second appearance on the ensemble drama is slated for February 24. Her arc will commence with the show's third season, which begins production in April in Vancouver.
Lawless solidified her pinup status among sci-fi/fantasy fans when she portrayed the scantily-clad title character in the syndicated series Xena: Warrior Princess. The show, a spin-off of the Kevin Sorbo action series Hercules, premiered in 1994 and ran for six years.
