Equal parts Dark Star, Silent Running, The Matrix, and Big Brother. Shaken, not stirred. Ron Moore’s magnificent follow-up to his re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. How is it possible for something this intelligent, innovative, and engaging to *NOT* get picked up as a series?!? One of the best pieces of science fiction TV I’ve seen in my entire life is going to remain a failed pilot for Fox. I think the last time I saw an unsold pilot with this much potential was The Questor Tapes. If you can snag the DVD for this, it is definitely worth watching. If not, well, that’s your loss.
