Brent Spiner stars in new Sci-Fi show ‘Threshold’

(Posted September 14, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES - The fear factor has invaded scripted TV, with several new prime-time dramas suggesting something alien has landed and probably wants to get us all.

One of these shows is “Threshold,” premiering 9 p.m. EDT Friday on CBS, which features a government team of experts trying to counteract that threat — while they too feel fear.

“Everyone I’ve ever known in my life, or seen, or met, or loved, or hated, is at risk of being destroyed. That’s a pretty big chunk of fear, and I think that’s what we are all dealing with, if we don’t save the day,” says Brent Spiner, describing the mission of his character, Dr. Nigel Fenway, and his cohorts.

Spiner, who was the android Data on the series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and four “Star Trek” movies, is more like himself — gray-haired, flippant, and makeup free — as Fenway, a brilliant microbiologist.

Carla Gugino, title star of the short-lived 2003 ABC series “Karen Sisco,” plays team member Dr. Molly Anne Caffrey, who organized a first-response unit when the U.S. Navy discovered an alien craft in the ocean.

“I’m really fascinated by someone who chooses worst-case scenarios as a profession. Someone who obviously thrives on crisis,” says Gugino.
