Remember when Jaime Lannister was a starship captain?

Long before he was the swashbuckling, incestuous, damaged brother of Tyrion and Cersei Lannister, Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau starred in the amazing space TV show Virtuality. Which, if the gods were not cruel, would have been a TV series. » 5/06/13 7:00pm 5/06/13 7:00pm

We were looking forward to 17th Precinct, the fantasy cop show from Ronald D. Moore and his dream team cast of Battlestar Galactica alums, but sadly it never reached our screens.
