I think the big difference is Babylon 5 was completely serious.  You need to look at the idea of a Space Dramedy, I mean how cool would it be if Captain Picard would shoot first and ask questions later.  All of the current series show a superior human race who is too good to be fighting.  What happens when they don't know what to do and they make a huge galactic mistake.  It is easy to do comparisons and show similar series on TV, look at all the CSI series and family sitcoms.  They are all identical.  However, they all appeal to a certain demographic.  Star Control would appeal to male 18 to 34 demo.  Paul Reiche has said in the past how similar he has thought Babylon 5 was to Star Control.  Look at how close Deep Space 9 and Babylon 5 were.  I personaly think it is a splendid idea.  More importantly is sounds really, really fun to watch.

Perhaps a character like Bruce Campbell...  Kinda lucks his way through things but a sort of unfounded arrogance.

But, if you structured it to run in a 3 year story arch.  I always envisioned it to be similar in feel to a Galaxy Quest.  Very Bawdy and pushing the edge of FCC guidelines.  I think that a cartoon what not do it justice, and with CG the cost has actually dropped significantly to create the aliens.  I am not a big fan of the nose prostetic aliens and these can be achieved by CGI.  Maybe we could start a petition to start a Television series.  Anyone know how?

So are there any petitions to create a TV series?

For argument sake...  Funding for a television series such as this would be no more or less than a babylon 5 or Star Trek.  Babylon which was the least expensive Sci-Fi show was at 800k per episode which is small however they did have the none nose piece aliens and the expanse world.  Three letters spells out how to cut costs CGI.  Yeah, it wasn't an all time seller, but it actually has a rather large following and is rated as #6 best game of all time by gamespy.  The most important thing is that it has a great, funny story line.  That is what would be important.

Well then let me re-phrase my previous comment.  Would anyone watch a TV series based on Star Conrol?

So, I have heard some rumors that they are looking into developing a television series based on the Star Control 2 universe.  Has anybody heard this?
