I don't think any of the MyrU stories were "Planet of the Week" deals; it would have been interesting if one had been.
Without knowing anything about how the MU stories were conceived and written, I've always had the impression that they were meant to both introduce a universe and make the reader somewhat familiar with it by the stories' end, as though the continuity they've just experienced is as legitimate as the primary timeline. A planet of the week adventure would be difficult unless the planet become part of an arc like the Mere Anarchy series.
