Katee Sackhoff has traded in her viper flight suit for a badge and gun.
The Battlestar Galactica alum stars alongside Robert Taylor in A&E's new drama Longmire, a modern-day western that follows the life of the recently widowed Sheriff Walt Longmire and his deputy, Victoria Moretti, as they navigate the varying degree of crimes — from the most mundane (shooting sheep) to the most gruesome (sex trafficking) — in a small town in Wyoming.

Where Walt is quiet, yet dedicated and unflappable, Vic offers the fish-out-of-water comedic timing in this slower-paced, heavily character-driven drama, which also stars Bailey Chase as another deputy looking to unseat Walt as the Sheriff, Lou Diamond Phillips as Walt's liaison to the crimes that take place on the Indian reservation, and Smallville's Cassidy Freeman as Walt's daughter Cady.
To get acquainted with the new series, TVGuide.com turned to Sackhoff, who calls Longmire "a throwback to the old Westerns," which could play in the show's favor following the recent raving success of History's period miniseries Hatfields & McCoys. Get the scoop:
