I remember it quite well, actually. One of the better shows to have come out. Well written and intelligent - no wonder it got cancelled. I also recall ROBOTECH mecha got a second life being remarketed under the EXOsquad brand for a while, too.
Do any of you have your crew or ship themed after any show or thing.
Ya, and I'm really big on making them look as close as possible to the people/things which inspired them. No point in naming a character, saaay, Optimus Prime or Megatron if you don't at least TRY to make them look like the source material...
K.I.S.S. (a Knight In Starfleet's Service) is my tribute to the band. He commands the U.S.S. Detroit Rockcity and looks as close to Gene Simmon's make up as the toon generator will allow. The other "band" member is as close to a "cat" as possible, and the rest of the crew are "groupies."
Glyph of the U.S.S. RECOGNIZER is a program from the TRON universe. She's the grid unit of both TRON and YORI. Tried to give her and her crew a glowing look with their uniforms and names that sound like "programs."
Prowl of the U.S.S. DEFENSOR is my technorganic Autobot. Grimlock, Arcee, Hound and Huffer are the
main crew, but I did another costume for Prowl to make him look like Snarl, and also have Slag and Swoop. Sludge is the last Dinobot I need to make, but gotta wait till I have another officer space.
Thundercracker of the I.K.S. FRENZY is the Klingon Decepticon counterpart. Crew consists of Ravage, Black Arachnia, Weirdwolf, Starscream (yes, he's my sci officer) Skywarp, and Shockwave <--- my Breen officer.

...It's on hulu now though, you might watch it when bored...
Cool, I will have to check that out. I remember watching it way back then. For years I couldn't remember what it was called so I could look it up. Stumbled across something about it again several years ago. Probably worse than I remember it, but will look into it.
Well, you would've been like 3 when it was on. :p

REALLY?! I must look it up. I tried to find a torrent of it once (Didn't know the first season was put onto DVD), but all I could find were really low-quality VHS copies. Frigging amazing show, and I was just floored at how many serious issues it addressed, especially for a kids' show (racism, slavery, genocide, piracy, civil rights...).
I remember sneaking up at 6 AM to see it when it was airing then, watching it darn near on mute so my parents wouldn't hear, but still getting in trouble with my dad because I was still supposed to be in bed, heh (think I was about 8 or 9 at the time).
Bought the season set. Even those I'm 30 something I still love that show. for it's time it was excellent, and still is to a point. The animation being the only thing lacking. But still, a excellent show. And Marsh...that rocks.
