Watch The First 15 Minutes Of Syfy's 'Helix' Online Now

Great news if you're anxiously awaiting the premiere of Syfy's new series "Helix."

Syfy has put the first 15 minutes of the premiere episode online to watch before this Friday's primetime debut.

"Helix," which Syfy is hoping will be their next hit series, is about a group of scientists that travel to the Arctic to examine a possible disease outbreak from an alien virus that could threaten all human civilization. The new science fiction thriller is from executive producer Ronald D. Moore ("Battlestar Galactica") and stars Billy Campbell ("The Killing") as one of the scientists called in to research the outbreak.

Watch the first 15 minutes of the pilot above, and tune in this Friday, Jan. 10 for the double episode premiere event.

"Helix" airs Friday, Jan. 10 at 10 p.m. EST on Syfy.
