Not knowing the final word, I really can't get into this...but
if there were to be no more eps, I'm not sure that I would want to get
into a long dissertation of what would've been...because what would be
the point? It was made to be *done*, not talked about. In addition,
for myself, it would be better to move on to other projects at that
point rather than stay immersed in that one universe.

It's nothing to do with Crusade as a *product*. It's Crusade
and the writing thereof as an *art form* that is at issue here. If a
composer was stopped from finishing a symphony, and someone said,
"Well, can you talk about what you *would* have done?" it's an
impossible question...a symphony is meant to be *heard* not talked
about.

Further, it would mean my spending a great deal of time dwelling
on something that I won't be able to *do*. For me, it's not an
academic exercise, it's a point of great personal frustration...why in
heaven's name should I choose to enhance that any further by dwelling
on all the cool things I could've/would've done had TNT not pulled the
plug?

No, I know where the story was going to go, that ain't the
point; the point is in spending that much emotional time going over
something that somebody canceled.
