Not long after her semiconspicuous absence from Bionic Woman's TCA press tour session, Katee Sackhoff and NBC agreed to terms that will make her a recurring player on the new series, says the Hollywood Reporter. Sackhoff's Sarah, a bionic woman herself (but one in desperate need of debugging), plays a meaty role in the pilot. Despite being passed off thus far as a recurring cast member, the actress and the studio had actually still been negotiating terms.

According to the trade mag, some had speculated that Sackhoff - a bit of an icon to the lesbian community from her run as Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck - had taken issue with Bionic Woman's hiring of Isaiah Washington, yet others deny that that played into her holdout. ( I hear she was lobbying to make her borg an eco-friendly hybrid.)
