There is not many western type settings in a space exploration science fiction TV series. Why did Joss Whedon's "Firefly" end after only one season? Did anyone else like that show? I can't find a forum for this show. I thought it was a great change up from the neat starfleet concepts. It spawned the "Serenity" movie sequels so what happened to the TV series?
Um, despite your Lt.Jr.Grade status I feel compelled to say Welcome to the boards, welcome to the internet in general I suppose.
This is one of the few topics to be discussed more than Superman Returns
outside of Trek specific forums.
Fox aired it out of order.
Fox aired it sporadically and it was preempted for the MLB worldseries a few times.
It was so different that the masses couldn't accept it or because of Fox's handling of it found it unimpressive and confusing.
