Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda: Seriously, what was that all about? What was supposed to happen?

Once upon a time there was a show called "Andromeda," which was basically a retread of Star Trek, thought up by perennian one-trick pony Gene Roddenberry. Networks were not impressed, and didn't pick up the series based on his pitch. In the eighties - as rumor has it - the same basic pitch was dusted off and sold to Paramount, who said 'yes' this time. Eventually, thanks to the popularity of "Star Trek IV: The One With The Whales," Paramount decided take the series - then in preproduction - and retool it as a Trek spinoff.
