unhappy

for no man is an island

Space: Above and Beyond is one of the more obscure fringes of media fandom; the series didn't spring from an already-popular comic series, movie, or book, had no stars, and ran for only thirteen episodes on Fox before being killed by the network, whose execs apparently resented the fact that the show had become much more than Space: 90210. Still, for several years the S:AAB fans of the Space Ready Reserve were extremely active, playing an unusually proactive role in improving the series and heaping praise on the Sci-Fi Channel when SFC picked up the show a year or so after Fox cancelled it. In addition to show-related stuff, the SRR also conducted a number of charity "operations" in support of the troops in Bosnia and Iraq.
