i finally got round to watching that as a complete set a couple days ago, and I tried to sell it here, but they doubted me... "Gay Star Ship captains? You're pulling my leg!"

What if Ira cock blocked Berman, or whosoever was pitching this idea of a lost starship on the other side of the galaxy bullshit? He purposely kicked their ball into a sand trap by removing this name from play when they were still trying to devise what to call their series?
