Soon, the omni-nerds--you know, the folks who watched Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in its entirety and enjoyed it--will flock to Facebook to see what SyFy is up to in social games. According to Gamesindustry.biz, the NBC-owned network will create games based off of its own programs (ahem, Battlestar Galactica, anyone?) and original content. Of course, the games will launch on Facebook, but the company has plans to release them to other platforms.
