Being Human, Defiance, Warehouse 13 And Ronald D. Moore's Helix Set For Comic Con Panels image
Syfy viewers attending Comic Con this year will have the opportunity to attend panels for four of the network's series, three of which you may have seen and one that's on the way, courtesy of Ronald D. Moore. Set to be featured in panels at Comic Con in San Diego next month are Defiance, Helix, Being Human and Moore's upcoming new series Helix. Unlike most of the announcements we've heard so far, Syfy actually has specific details on where their panels are taking place at SDDC, as well as what time.

It's either Room 6A or the Indigo Ballroom for the four series panels set up at the convention. Defiance and Helix will take place in 6A on Friday, while Being Human and Warehouse 13 will be set up at the Indigo Ballroom in the Hilton Bayfront, where they were last year. The downside to that is that it's a building away from the Convention Center, and depending on the weather, you stand the risk of getting sunburned waiting on line outside. On the bright side, the bay view is gorgeous and Indigo's a pretty massive venue, so you might stand a better chance at getting a seat in there than you would at one of the smaller Convention Center rooms.

Here's the full schedule:
Friday, July 19

Ron Moore's Helix is the only yet-to-air Syfy series set up for a panel, and the fact that it hasn't even aired yet but is still getting its own panel is a mark of just how enthusiastic Syfy is at promoting it. And given the series' executive producer, I wouldn't be surprised if many people turned out to check out that panel. Ronald Moore is probably best known for developing the beloved Battlestar Galactica reboot, which helped put Syfy (or then "Scifi") on the map in terms of original programming. Whether or not Helix proves to be a winner remains to be seen, but the premise, which involves a group of scientists who are investigating a potential disease outbreak in an Arctic research facility, certainly sounds promising enough. Here's the teaser Syfy debuted back in April:
