This is making me crazy, I've searched the internet and asked on other forums to no avail.
I'm looking for the name of a short lived TV series ... but I can only remember two things about it.

1. The pilot of the ship was good looking but hard female who laid on her stomach in the pilots seat with a joy stick in each hand.

2. They had an alien berserker (played by an Asian actor) on board who stayed in a cocoon and wore a control collar which was turned off when his "skills" were needed.

This is all I have and I'm starting to get a headache.

PS ... I'm sure it's not Lexx.

Thanks in advance.

Oh wow, I remember that movie, but I am sorry to say that I can't for the life of me remember the name.
Sorry...but I will think about it, iced inside, 2nd round on its way, so as long as I have power, I will get on here every now and then.

good luck

Thanks

Any hint when this would have been? I find it odd that it doesn't even vaguely ring any bells for me. Is it particularly old?

I think around the time of Babylon 5 or Farscape.
BTW ... UPS just delivered Farscape The Complete Series, I plan on many hours of enjoyment

I think maybe late 70's early 80's but you know TV rots your brains, that has to by why I love it! I remember the man, African-American would get angry, and pull of his collar, and every once in a while one of his ship mates would hold the collar on, and tell him to chill. Maybe he was Native-American? I will ask my dad....he may know!

Thanks Red ... I was thinking Asian but he could have been Native-American.
After awhile things start to get all mixed together.

According to Amazon it's only in Region code: 2 ... but it's "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

Too bad, I would have liked to see it.
