    And Ceti Alpha VI, for that matter.

    Come to think of it, just strike that whole system from your star charts. Don't go there.

    The place where the ghastly Australian series Blue Heelers was set. I could never bring myself to watch it but going on the previews in TV guides and onscreen, some small town in Victoria was the crime capital of the planet. Murders, kidnappings, drug cartels, gang wars...you name it, it happened there. Cabot Cove was entirely crime-free compared to that place.

    The Monroe Republic.

    Apparently the crew of the Reliant learned star navigation from the back of a Wheaties box, since they 1) couldn't tell that Ceti Alpha VI had exploded, and 2) They went to any system named "Ceti Alpha" and forgot about Khan. :lol:

    I think I watched the first couple of episodes but all I know fter that comes from promos and hearing other people talking about the show.

    I looked it up on Wikipedia and the town was Mount Thomas and, going by the cast list this small town had 5 policemen assigned to it at the beginning of season one - which must surely make it the most heavily policed small town in Australia.

    Not only would I avoid Bluebell Alabama, I'd steer clear of Stars Hollow CT.

    The towns look exactly alike and in Stars Hollow people talk too fast. :lol:

    The Planet Skaro, as it's populated by a xenophobic race who want to exterminate all other life in the multi-verse.
