Looked at the rest of the writing staff...
Besides Goyer there's Josh Friedman, who has a mere 10 credits - mostly in the Terminator franchise... The poorly received movies.
Most of the rest of the writing staff have under 5 credits. One has no credits between 2002 and Foundation. Almost no Sci-fi
Three of the writers, this is their first credit.
Looks like they have a terrible writing pool.
Might I suggest you re-watch Flesh Gordon instead? At least it doesn't take itself seriously, and the stop motion beast at the end gets a couple of good one-liners.
Have you ever seen Ascension? Miniseries from 2014. 6 episodes. Generation ship. Really solid. A show I'd like to see expanded.
