So what they should do now is produce a full 12 direct-to-video episodes of Nebula 9, starring Ed Quinn and Christina Moore (the "original cast" members from the episode). It was supposed to be a cheesy-looking show, so they wouldn't have to put too much money into it.
At the very least, they should do a Nebula 9 comic tie-in. I'm genuinely curious about the show's premise and characters.
I think you've just found your next project. Start turning in some spec scripts!
