Trust me, it's not original. I've heard it before.

Re: No Space TV Show After the End of BSG!

It's still pretty awesome to a single google result. Bob was rather unique.

If there won't be anything new, the only option would be rewatcing old space shows such as "Firefly", "Farscape" and of course "B5" and "Crusade".

I've sworn that I would never watch the biggest rip-off in the history of television, called "Deep Space Nine". I've given it up after the first episode, when I heard the name Gul Dukat.

There's really not much left - "Andromeda" is dumb, so are "Voyager" and "TNG". I had some hopes for "Enterprise", but in vain.

Tell me there's something coming.

You've frogotten about Stargate Universe, tthat one is Space based. as for DS9 yeah I can see see a comparsion to B5 but never the less its a great show.

Andromeda got killed after season 2, when they restored the Commonwealth, the shows purpose evaporated. This hsow could have been up there with B5, Battlestar and DS9.

That was because JMS shopped B5 to Paramount (discussed it with 'em, gave 'em the Series Treatment, etc.) before he went to Warner Brothers. Paramount says no, they're not interested and then comes out with DS9 before The Gathering can make it to air. ...but I'm sure all that was purely coincidence. Yeah, right. <S>

DS9? I gave it a chance from the beginning, and for four years. Pretty much couldn't stand it. Went to Voyager (a "road show") but couldn't stand it, either. Then I discovered B5, and immediately liked it about 1000 times more than DS9 and 1,000,000 times more than Voyager.

That's exactly what I meant when I said rip-off.

Unfortunately writers in Hollywood are not very well protected from such things. Even if you patent your idea there will always be someone to change a few names and present it as an original idea. In this case they didn't even bother to change all the names (Gul Dukat).

I have heard that story about him shopping it to Paramount and i believe it. Still DS( is a favorite of mine.
