I was watching the scifi channel yesterday and was reminded of two scifi series I followed in the 1990s that got cancelled - Alien Nation and Earth 2. Which got me thinking of what we might have missed in terms of scifi sagas (pretty depressing) that got canned early! Some earned a conclusion more graceful than others, mind you...

On this list you can nominate your favourite scifi/fantasy TV series that got canned too soon. I have added a few of my own favourites to get you rolling.

Nominations end Sunday at 21 EST
. After that I will set up the first voting round. NOMINATION PERIOD OVER.

76. Board Game: Mastermind [Average Rating:5.43 Overall Rank:10297]
Q.E.D. evidently also shown under the title "The Mastermind" (CBS 1982) with Sam Waterston.
A single season of six episodes.
Set in England before the Great War, Waterston played American scientist Quentin Everett Deverill, who had a series of adventures where he would use his scientific knowledge to foil dastardly plots.
Though set in the past, this certainly qualifies as science fiction in the tradition of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.

The Questor Tapes

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Questor_Tapes

Gene Roddenberry and Gene L. Coon proposed a series based on their 1974 TV movie. An android is assembled by a team of scientists, but its creator disappears. The 'tapes' that program the android were damaged, and when awakened the android begins a mission to find his creator and discover his purpose.

The show was greenlit, but Roddenberry and the network didn't see eye to eye and only the pilot movie was ever made.

Saw this as a kid and really wished it had gone forward.

Questor by the way was Roddenberry's prototype for Data in TNG. Kinda cool, eh?

This was a fun bit of ridiculousness about the United Galaxy Sanitation Patrol. A parody sitcom with nods to Star Wars, Alien, Star Trek and many other science fiction tropes. Similar to Futurama.

Stargate Universe. Excellent gritty drama with a fantastic setting. I wasn't too happy with the direction taken with some of the plot lines, but overall I think it was an excellent series that should've gotten more than 2 seasons.


Runner up is Stargate Atlantis.

STAR TREK

Genre: Space Opera
Created by Gene Rodenberry
Channel: NBC
Original run: September 8, 1966 – June 3, 1969
No. of episodes: 79 (3 seasons + pilot)

Yes, the Star Trek franchise has run a long time. But the original Star Trek series only lasted three seasons before NBC canned it due to inadequate ratings. NBC had even tried to kill it after the second season but a letter-writing campaign made them give it a third season, though they cut its budget and refused to move it to a better time-slot.

Star Trek: Enterprise. Much maligned, but it was getting pretty good before it got cancelled.

The final episode is probably the worst series ending ever.

Strange Luck

Same era as The X-Files and American Gothic. This was a great little show for the time, always fun to see how the chain of events would work themselves out, and the little nod to the X-Files. Never made it to DVD though.

Survivors (BBC 2008)

While not as "thinky" as the 1975 series, this one was pretty good (although it had its share of frustrating "WTF?!" moments). While they wrapped up most of the main plot arcs in the finale, they did leave plenty of room for more seasons.

Available on Amazon instant viewing (free to Prime members).

Threshold

"My name is Molly Caffrey, and I work for the Federal Government. I deal in worst-case scenarios, the unthinkable. On September 16th, 2005, the unthinkable happened. An extraterrestrial object appeared off the bow of a naval freighter. The entire crew was exposed to a high frequency signal. Some died instantly. Others began to change. They are now stronger, more resilient. They dream of alien landscapes. And they are driven by the impulse to infect others. Several of the crewmen are now loose in the United States. They will strike anytime, anyplace, anyone. Their goal: to turn us into them. But I have a plan to stop them. That plan is called "Threshold"."

A thoroughly entertaining series I thought which I was disappointed to see cancelled, now very memorable because it was the first show I saw Peter Dinklage, now of Tyrion fame, in.

Really great series, it just got better and better. A bit like Dead like Me, but as a drama instead of a comedy and with more story development.

VR.5 was a funky show about conspiracies surrounding control of an immersive virtual reality system that could actually interact with people's subconsciouses over the phone. From the days of cradle-modems and crude computer graphics came this interesting if somewhat uneven show. Three of the thirteen episodes didn't air originally, and it's still not available on DVD. It starred a bunch of genre stalwarts: Lori Singer, Michael Easton, Will Patton, Lois Fletcher, Anthony Steward Head, and David McCallum



On a personal note, in the early-ish days of the "World Wide Web" and Internet fandom, when message boards were more the thing, I wrote an episode guide and FAQ for this show. Bits of those original docs were taken into the main FAQ (sections 1.5 and 1.11) , which can still be found here: http://www.vx1.net/void/vr5faq.txt
