What are your favorite shows about people on a spaceship?

Yes, I have also seen lower decks, firefly, the Orville, star trek continues and new voyages, space 1999, flash gordon, buck rogers, the 50s flash Gordon, the 30s/40s buck rogers and flash Gordon, and pretty much every filmation cartoon.

@ajroach42 what's your favorite?
I like firefly very much, anything you'd suggest that's "kinda like that" ?

@shapr The long way to a small, angry planet is like that, but it's a book.

Blake's 7 has a similar "we're on the wrong side of the law and trying to get by" thing going on, but it's very british, and that can be a turnoff.

Otherwise, no.

@ajroach42 I'll try the book, thanks for the suggestions

@shapr Space 1999 and BSG are probably my favorites from a visual standpoint.

I adore Space Patrol, but it's as hokey as they get.

Space 1999 is the only spaceship show I have found that is mostly just about "wow, it's weird being in space" and not "let's kill people".

I prefer the former.

Well, let's see... what's missing?

There's also:

Nadesico (parody -- and yet...)

Tenchi Universe: Space (it's kind of a self-contained arc -- fun and silly space opera)

Planetes is high art / hard-sf, which is rare in anime.

Crest of the Stars / Banner of the Stars is interesting, albeit slow.

Dark Matter is fun, albeit sort of incomplete.

Speaking of incomplete, you should check out "Mighty Space Miners" -- potential, but unresolved.
