Default New SYFY channel blake copy?

Is it just me, or does this sound like another attempt to copy Blake's 7?




Spaceships are coming back in a big way. Syfy has cranked up development on seven new series—several of which look to be space-set, hard sci-fi epics.

The network has tapped a slew of experienced genre writers and producers to launch these new series, including Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity), Ron Milbauer and Terri Hughes Burton (Alphas), and Phil Levens (Smallville).

From derelict spaceships to a war between supernatural forces, here’s a rundown of all the new projects in development:
Clandestine

This series follows a group of left-for-dead outlaws who hide out in an abandoned Coalition ship. Before long they use the ship to pose as Coalition officers, until they discover a huge conspiracy surrounding the real agenda of the Coalition. This one is definitely intriguing, and sounds like it has a solid Farscape and Firefly vibe. Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) will executive-produce this one, making it one to watch.

As SyFy have now given the go-ahead for Blake's 7 I don't think they'll be doing a second spaceship based show at the same time. There are pitches for new series each year. Robert Hewitt Wolfe who worked on Star Trek -DS9 and created Andromeda pitched a new series called 'Starship Defender' to SyFy last year but they didn't take it up. There's also the proposed reboot of Space 1999 (Space 2099), and the people behind Spartacus are planning a Halo like show called Incursion. We'll have to wait and see if they ever get made.
