I can't believe I found this show
6 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been talking about this show for years. It was awful and good at the same time. I was beginning to think I made it up. Every time I brought it up people would think I was nuts. Now I know my mind hasn't wilted from too many hours of Star Trek. Thank you for the other Sci-Fi lovers out there. This was one of my weekly rituals as a kid along with Knight Rider, The Dukes of Hazard and He-Haw. This show was definitely way ahead of it's time. Maybe it would do better with some hot chicks and better writers. Let's try it again!Maybe today tech level can do it justice. It would be a break from all the CSI and reality shows, and it worked for Battlestar Galactica.
