Astronauts in a space station weather a meteor shower — except for one man who becomes embedded with some of the rocks. Or at least the crew thought these were rocks.... Nicholas Lea (The X-Files), Teryl Rothery (Stargate SG-1), Jamie Luner (Profiler) and Steve Bacic (Andromeda) star.

Rothery Reaches Threshold
Teryl Rothery (Dr. Frasier on Stargate SG-1) told SCI FI Wire that she recently completed production in Toronto on a new movie for the SCI FI Channel called Threshold. "Jamie Luner [Profiler] is in it," Rothery said in an interview. "Nick Lea, Krycek from The X-Files, is in it. And myself."
Rothery added, "Basically, it's about astronauts working one of the space stations when a meteor shower hits. This one astronaut gets imbedded with some of the rocks, or so they think it is. And it ends up being this alien insect that incubates in a human and [then] takes over the human, and they feed on other people."
Rothery describes her Threshold character as a "very funny, sort of brassy, trashy woman" from Texas. "Her name is Shelley Hansen," the actress said. "She's got a thick accent and all, and her husband [Steve Bacic of Andromeda] ends up being taken over by one of these insects. ... I get a little bloodied up. So it was fun. [Veteran television producer] Stephen Cannell has a little cameo in it. Chuck Bowman [The Pretender] directed it, and Chuck is [Reign of Fire director] Rob Bowman's dad. So it was great. Rob came and visited for a bit. I'd worked with Chuck on a few other things, quite a few other things, and he's a lovely director. We had a great crew and cast and just had a whole lot of fun." The SCI FI Channel will air Threshold sometime in 2003.
