Moore, among the more prolific genre showrunners of the last two decades, famously shepherded SyFy's critically acclaimed reboot of Battlestar Galactica. He started as a writer and eventual producer on Star Trek: The Next Generation before moving on to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and a stint on Star Trek: Voyager.
Of course, Moore's work over the years has gone further than simply Battlestar Galactica. In general, whenever Moore takes on the depths of space audiences are in for a treat - although, of course, every show has its bad episodes.
The new series, set in an alternative timeline where the space race never ended, marks the third massive order for Apple's original efforts. Fargo producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi are also onboard and it's being produced by Sony Pictures Television and Tall Ship Productions.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the story, and revealed that the now untitled series will take place in an alternate timeline where the space race never ended.
There's no news on when Moore's show will be released, but his experience is reason enough to get excited.
