And then, all of the newbie characters -- like M'yra and Ensign Fouton -- got written out. (In the case of R.J. Blaise, she disappeared mid-story.)
Yep. Richard Arnold was worried the Series II original characters would become the new Konom/Bryce/Bearclaw, etc. and declared that no ongoing new character could last longer than a story arc. Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!

I wonder how the Fouton storyline would have played out had Arex taken on security instead - as hinted at in a Series I lettercol? Arex ultimately did shift over to security when Arex and M'Ress dropped into "New Frontier".
