The unaired pilot material was later worked into other episodes, not all of it, but some of it. But when you compare it to the aired pilot, you realize it really doesn't work and could have doomed the show to an early demise. It gives away too much too soon, and prematurely mortally wounds one of the main characters before the audience has had a chance to get to know or like the character.
