Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Killing the love interest is right out of the BONANZA playbook. It's a tired trope. I toyed with it and dropped it. The Captain can have a little romantic connection without it necessarily leading anywhere. I approached it as two mature people finding themselves attracted. There wasn't even a kiss until the end, when it was essentially, "farewell".
