Andromeda TV Series
#14
I love the first two seasons of Andromeda....then it went bad. As I remember it (and I may be wrong) the original show-runner either was fired or quit, and from that point on it was somewhat rudderless. I always felt as if I had missed four or five episodes and was trying to catch up. Turns out it was just bad writing.

In those first two seasons, I only had one problem: Why, o why does Andromeda need a captain? Shouldn't the ship itself be in command?

But they had some neat tech - the whole idea behind the "Force Lance" with smart drone projectiles was great. They mentioned that the interior of the ship was saturated with nanobots, but never went into detail and never used that idea again. Their concept for FTL was at least consistent and somewhat limiting (I kept thinking "Did Larry Niven get credit for this?").

The first two seasons were kind of a "Buck Rogers, but done right" thing.... The last three seasons (season 5 in particular) were a mess.
