    3 reasons it was likely unsold
    1 cost
    2 difficulty in set design props and effects
    3 Westerns at the time were the rage. During the 1950s and 60`s Western were the main money making shows. Even Star Trek had this problem. It was originally sold to the networks as a "Wagon Train To The Stars" according to Rodenberry. Now compare this concept show to the Actual series that ran from 1988 to 1989.

    I would send the aliens LBFMs from Wanchai. If that doesn`t give em a dose of the clap, nothing will.

    I would have liked to see more of the test footage and concept art. Maybe a rough pilot episode.
