New Show Ideas on Fox Tv - Virtuality

It seems Fox is taking an interest in Ron Moore's new astronauts-in-virtual-reality-show Virtuality. Virtuality takes place aboard the Phaeton, which just so happens to be Earth's first starship. The Phaeton is on a ten-year journey exploring the outer cosmos. In order to help the crew cope with this long mission a virtual reality is installed. Of course something goes wrong. The two-hour pilot was written by Battlestar Gallactica's Ron Moore and Michael Taylor. As the folks over at IO9 point out, we all hope that Fox sees the error of their ways as far as killing new SF shows. So often we have see really excellent programs (Firefly) canceled in their infancy. Look for this and other programs to start on Fox next spring.
