I wonder why the comic wasn't adapted, or at least the story followed closely.
That's the tragedy of it all...the original miniseries from Dark Horse would have made for a hugely better film. But as you note, the budget would certainly have been a lot higher.
I don't know if it would have been much higher though. The pyramid interior sets would have been just as expensive as any colony interior, and much of the whaling station was constructed as an outside practical set.

I think it was much more likely just a storytelling choice.
