Karen Cliche as a sci-fi bounty hunter? For those who have followed her career, it makes perfect sense. Already a veteran in the genre with starring roles in Mutant X and Adventure Inc., Cliche is playing Baylin in Sci Fi Channel's new Flash Gordon series, which premieres on Friday at 9 p.m. "Baylin is a bounty hunter from Mongo who lost her parents at a very young age, and has been forced to survive on her own for a long time. She meets Flash on assignment, and ends up stuck on Earth for a while. She is drawn to Flash because of his sincerity and sees that he is trustworthy, and relates to his quest for answers and yearning for a lost parent. Back on Mongo, she has no family or tribe, so she finds that in Flash, Dale and Zarkov, and as much as she would never admit it, she finds comfort in that."
