    Its writers got lost in a nebula made of alcohol vapors while they were searching for inspiration. They will possibly show up when they run out of pretzels & beer nuts.

    Of course...
    Star Wars
    Star Trek

    Somehow I never saw Babylon 5 in the 90's (alot going on in my life back then, newly married, kids, moving to several houses, job changes... oiy). Now I've just started Season 5. GREAT SHOW!

    The Expanse - awesome show. It's sort of how I picture SC working.

    How about Planet of the Apes?
    Some Twilight Zone episodes

    Wanted to say Dr. Who and District 9, too (but its not really space based, isn't it? (I'm always imagining myself as british gentleman when i say that))
    totally forgot Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
    Red Dwarf heard about it several times, but i don't think its a big thing yet in germany.

    Well, District 9 (and Edge of Tomorrow, as well) are both set on earth but they happen to have aliens and spaceships in them. Doctor Who, though, involves quite a bit of space travel. The TARDIS is, after all, a space ship.

    That other stuff is good, but this is the coolest ship ever! I could wipe out a fleet of Kingships with the Argo's Wave Motion Gun. Episode after episode, the Argo destroyed entire fleets of Javelin-like ships. I also like reading Warhammer 40,000 novels, give those a try.
