THINGS TO PONDER: 1 to 5
I can't put much detailed information here about my Science-Fiction series until production time comes. Until then here are some elements to ponder over. These alone show that my series is a step above most other programs.
The Episode Titles will actually be shown on my Science-Fiction Series. This is something that many series don't do, like The X-Files, much to the annoyance of the fans. It took the Producers of SeaQuest DSV/2032 two years to realize this, only showing episode titles in third season episodes.
Because of lack of episode titles, much confusion had been caused for the fans concerning certain television series, including the title of the Babylon 5 pilot movie for awhile. There was one episode of Red Dwarf that didn't have a title shown, confusing many of its fans.
But which one?
Mulder's in the woods.
Does that help?
Remember the fourth episode of the Babylon 5 spin-off series Crusade? Was it the fourth episode filmed or the fourth aired? Was it the fourth intended to air before the TNT Network forced additional episodes up front and caused them to be aired out of order, contradicting the stories? Can we ever know for certain which one is truly "Episode Four"?
My Science-Fiction Series is going to have the episodes numbered in the opening credits with the title. So no matter what order they were filmed in, and no matter how many times the Sci-Fi Channel messes up the broadcast order ten years from now, it will be quite clear which one is "Episode Four". It says it's Episode Four, helping secure their proper order.
Besides the fact that most Science-Fiction Series are aired out of order by the Networks in their never ending obsession to screw us fans, even today the Sci-Fi Channel still airs SeaQuest DSV/2032 out of order, airing the episode where Lt. Brody dies, only to have him alive again three episodes later. Tasha Yar wasn't even that confused.

PERMENANT BATTLE DAMAGE.
Because Aliens like to shoot at us, the main Vehicle will sustain Permenant Battle Damage throughout the Series, something extraordinarily rare for Science-Fiction Television Series, and actually pretty much an exclusive to my show.
Seen at left are scenes from a Star Trek: Voyager episode called "Year of Hell". A two-parter, it was originally intended to be a season finale cliffhanger before it was shelved at the last minute and replaced with a Borg episode that eventually introduced Seven of Nine. It was done the following season instead.
Many fans both loved and hated Year of Hell for a multitude of reasons. They loved it because of the battle damage, suspense, threat, conflict, peril, and the simple fact that for the first (and only) time, Voyager was actually dealing with the harshness their premise placed them in. The reason fans hated it was simple: it never happened. A Time-Travel episode, everything was restored back to its original condition the way they were at in the Teaser of part one. This is something done quite often on Star Trek, where as it gives the Producers an excuse to do something dramatic that they usually wouldn't do, such as kill a main character, only to hit the reset button at the end like a big joke on the fans and say "Ha-Ha, just kidding! It never happened."
Not only will we throw the reset button away, the damage will be permenant.
Star Trek: Voyager goes
from Battle Damaged to
Mint Condition in 43 minutes,
HEAVY SPACE BATTLES.
Our space battles are usually going to be a bit more heavy than the usual space battle seen on other shows. Why? Well, the fact that we have Permenant Battle Damage alone pumps up the power factor quite a bit. But don't expect to see them too often, as they're too heavy.
On Star Trek: Voyager, you kinda already know the Voyager won't really be harmed in the grand scheme of things by attacking aliens. After numerous engagements by the Kazons, Vidiians, Borg and the Hirogen, the ship still looks exactly the same. Huh?
Riker proves he's the Man.
NO BUMPY FOREHEADED ALIENS.
Our aliens are real aliens. We will have NO make-up prosthetic department.
