'CSI': First look at Katee Sackhoff as Det. Frankie Reed

csi-katee-sackhoff.jpg "CSI" is welcoming "Battlestar Galactica" alum Katee Sackhoff as Detective Frankie Reed in an upcoming episode called "Cold Blooded." The CSI team investigates the murder of a college student and guest-star Sackhoff's tough, smart Reed helps the team on a missing persons case. The episode airs Thursday, Oct. 28.

Sackhoff can also be seen reprising the role of herself on "The Big Bang Theory" Thursday, Oct. 14. She reappears in Wolowitz's imagination as his love guide, alongside fellow Sci-Fi actor George Takei.

What do you think of Sackhoff trading in her usual blonde hair for the fiery red? We approve. "CSI" airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
