 I have a signed photo from Erin Grey hanging on the wall at my computer desk. A few years ago I was at a sci-fi convention where Gil Gerard was one of the guests, but I refused to speak to him since he'd been the one who had gotten the show cancelled.

Bits and pieces here and there. He had addiction issues that did a lot to wreck his career. At one point I heard his weight had ballooned to 300lbs and he had weight reduction surgery of some kind.

Loved this show as a kid, but when they did that exploration ship, it got a little drab........

Iíve enjoyed what Iíve seen of both seasons, but the exploration stuff did seem like a cheaper version of Star Trek.

I watched it religiously as a kid - I was a "Star Wars" crazed 9 year old so anything to do with spaceships, robots, etc. was OK by me.

I remember thinking it was odd that my Dad, who normally hated "that sci-fi stuff" as he called it, always watched it with me. It didn't dawn on me till years later that he was in it strictly for the female eye candy. (Erin Gray, yowza!) :D

first season was great but the second season was mediocre I think one of the reasons Gil had it canceled was it was getting to corny and kid friendly.

I remember watching this as a kid because they wouldn't show better sci-fi shows on the local channels. It felt as it its creators were mocking me for watching such trash. I found it childish and I was a child.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.
