    I just started a petition to bring this great series to DVD. Studios really pay attention to petitions. It's gotten us Willy Wonka and Cats & Dogs in widescreen, and perhaps even got N'Sinc out of Star Wars! If we really want this we can get it, but we have to work a little. The petition itself is very easy, just go to:
    http://www.PetitionOnline.com/SPACEAAB/petition.html
    and push the "Click here to sign petition" button. To really get this thing off the ground I've emailed dozens of webmasters around the country to ask if they will post this link. I'm booted out of AICN forums and haven't been able to get into HTF, so I'd really appreciate it some of you would post there about this next time you're visiting. That would just rule! So help me spread the word guys!

    Done, and I posted the link on our forum www.htforum.nl.
    So let's hope we get a lot of signatures.
    Greetings from Holland,

    Justin, you need to make some corrections to your petition before it's ready to be signed.

    "Several years ago I witnessed the coolest show I have ever seen on Fox, SPACE: Above and Beyond. The creators of the X-Files.."

    Chris Carter, who created The X-Files (with the uncredited help of various Fox executives) had nothing whatsoever to do with S:AAB.

    Glen Morgan and James Wong, who did create S:AAB (from an idea suggested by a Fox executive), did NOT create The X-Files. They were brought onto The X-Files after the pilot was shot and the show was picked up for series.

    "took the basic concept of the "Starship Troopers" novel..."

    Add in Top Gun and old combat movies...

    "as well as some behind the scenes footage of filming. A Chris Carter commentary (at least for the pilot)

    Again, Carter had absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with Space: Above and Beyond.

    The commentary should be by Glen Morgan and James Wong.

    I should add that after Morgan and Wong joined The X-Files writing/producing staff, they did create many of the characters beloved by the fans, like Skinner and the Lone Gunmen. ;-) And they did much to flesh out Mulder and Scully.

    Man, you got me all excited with your topic header. [​IMG]
    Once the petition is up to par I'll be glad to sign it, although most internet petitions don't tend to go anywhere.

    X-Files Season 4 features virtually all of the SAAB cast in it [​IMG]
    I have heard that Morgan&Wong are actively trying to get the show on DVD, and are working on doing it themselves if need be.
