I've not heard of that series - but it sounds very intriguing.
Me - well, it has to be 'Buck Rogers in the 25th Century' - keep the light tone and just add new effects al a BSG. I thought that show was such fun back in the day.
I'd have -
Ben Mackenzie as Buck Rogers
Melissa George as Wilma Deering
Denise Richards (back as a brunette) or Lucy Liu as Princess Ardala
It wouldn't be dark and socially relevant, but would be fun and bright as hell!
