I'm with many others here that the amount of aliens in the Titan
series is kind of the whole point. If you don't like it then you don't like it, and that's fair enough, but then the series might not be for you. But it's certainly not a mistake - it's what the whole thing is built on.
And it was one of my favourite series because of the return to exploration - both external and internal. Besides DS9 it was the only series I consistently followed. The Titan
sections were my favourite parts of Destiny
, and in general I just thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their interactions, which wouldn't have been as interesting if they weren't all different kinds of aliens.

I read somewhere on the internet that there is an effort to get a pilot episode of a Titian show made? I think it would be very expensive to produce a show with the exotic crew they have now. One would think a TV production of Titian would have a more human crew to keep production cost down. Though I am a fan of characters like Dr. Shenti Yisec Eres Ree, he would sadly be difficult to render on a TV show every week.
Which is why it would be better to do it as an animated series, as seen in this thread from 2009
, which features drawings of the main characters by Geoffrey Thorne, aka the author of the fourth Titan novel Sword of Damocles
. That thread might also help the OP to visualise and remember the characters.
That was just some fanboys' dream. It will never actually happen.
Oh I don't know, the webseries route is big right now. All it takes is someone with the passion and patience and a Kickstarter campaign and nothing better to do...
Since Michael Martin wrote the last two Titan novels which sucked quite a lot if you ask me, Titan just became boring.
Yeah, I gotta admit Seize the Fire
and Fallen Gods
were where Titan
became no longer my favourite series, to the extent that after Fire I wasn't even sure I was going to buy Gods. So I too am thrilled that James Swallow is returning to the series, and it gives me hope that I might not hate it.
