[[Series/{{Crusade}} Dureena Nafeel]] is doing smuggling these days, which is just thievery with ambition.

Added DiffLines:

* RuleThirtyFourCreatorReactions: Paul Darrow (who played the show's initial [[TheLancer Lancer]] and later protagonist Avon) was '''very very seriously unhappy''' about fics depicting his character engaging in m/m sexual activity (a particular problem as Avon was the show's LauncherOfAThousandShips, most of which were slash). This interacted with other fandom conflicts to create a humungous fandom civil war.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: Josette Simon did not look back on the show with fondness, believing that the showrunners took advantage of her naivity and lack of confidence to get her to play a "hot exotic warrior woman" part that she saw retrospectively as both sexually and racially demeaning.

Added DiffLines:

* DawsonCasting: ''Possibly'' the case with Dayna: though Josette Simon is actually quite a lot younger than other members of the principal cast, she was still in her early twenties when the show was made, but at several points it seems like the character was meant to be in her mid-teens (such as when she refers to herself as a "girl" at one point, explicitly contrasting this with Cally's allusion to herself as a woman moments before). A lot of her other traits (her obvious sexual curiosity around Avon and Tarrant, her quite childlike desire to be comforted when frightened despite her usual {{Badass}} demeanor) could be meant to indicate that the character was intended to be younger than she looked, but might just as easily be put down to her isolated upbringing alone with her father and foster-sister.

* ActingForTwo: Jan Chappell plays both Cally and her twin sister Zelda, which makes sense because they're both clones of a single, unnamed parent.
