Then again, I recommend folks who have lower tolerance for bad SF to start with season 2 - as I am a heathen.
On the one hand: noticeable quality increase.
On the other hand: you miss quite a bit of setup.
I'd say that while you could abbreviate season 1, omitting it entirely probably isn't a good idea. But you could cut it down to 8-10 episodes (depending on how many of Chekhov's guns you want to see hung, vs. just fired) without doing noticeable harm to the story.
