Looking at unmade science fiction, fantasy, horror and superhero films, television shows and episodes.
After the death of Gene Roddenberry, his wife Majel allowed Robert Hewitt Wolfe access to his old notes, from which Wolfe assembled the series the series Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, a series that ran from 2000 – 2005 and starred Kevin Sorbo. Eventually, Wolfe was fired from the show and his arc abandoned in favour of simpler standalone episodes.
Sorbo and makers Tribune and Fireworks decided that Wolfe’s “stories… were too complicated and too clever for the rest of us to understand” and although Wolfe used the episode “Ouroboros” (Season 2 episode 12) to make changes requested, it was his last episode and further changes were made without him.
The series then became a more action orientated show based around stand alone episodes about Sorbo’s character.
