Description: It is the year 2105… a young, inexperienced and highly flawed crew embarks on a routine exploratory space mission. Suddenly, their ship, the UMP Cruiser, is drawn through a portal into a different, mysterious universe. With no maps, no contact, and no way back home, Captain Stewart Lipinski, First Officer/Stewart’s-Older-Sister Karen Lipinski and their crew have to learn to work together, all while dealing with mysterious space clouds, food and fuel shortages, robot rebellions, folds in time, and the occasional alien attack.  IMDb.com

Why Was It Cancelled? This series from Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig and which included MST3K alum Joel Hodgson in the cast began streaming on Yahoo in April and received mostly good reviews. But it fell victim to Yahoo’s failed attempt to compete with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.  Yahoo indicated that they lost $42 million on their original programming (which included Community and Sin City Saints), then later announced that they were shuttering their video service.  There has been no word on whether Feig is trying to shop the show around to the other streaming services or one of the networks.
