Re: Countdown to Darkness - Review and Discussion
How exactly is it incompatible?
The main possible differences I can see relate to the apparent age of the Beta III civilization. In the comic, the civilization is in a single city less than a hundred years old, product of a single Earth colony mission using some advanced technology to get started; in the TV show, the civilization is presented as upwards of six thousand years old and apparently indigenous.
Think you pretty much summed up why they're incompatible.
