  • Role Association: Terry organizes a cross-country road race with Mal Reynolds, Rose, Jesus Velasquez, Keith, Grace Russell, and Dr. Connors as participants.
  • What Could Have Been: Here is a rough sketch of how the show would have progressed had anyone bothered to watch it. Some highlights:
    • Some of the contestants have "sponsors" who got them into the race. Some sponsors have benevolent motives, while others have revenge or other nefarious ideas on their minds. One racer, John Trimble, sponsored himself, looking to have one last thrill before he dies. Other contestants, such as the team of Leigh, Susan and Ivy, were put in as background racers to shake things up, similar to non-player "bots" in a video game.
    • John Trimble wasn't actually dying — in fact, it was his meds that were making him sick. After he finds out that he's going to live, he would've been killed by a bus, simply because, according to Minear, it would've been funny.
    • There were various ideas going around as to the identity of the truck driver who killed Susan. The most likely idea would've had it be a former contestant who had been crippled in the race and was now seeking revenge. Other ideas would have been for it to be a faceless serial killer (a la Duel), or have the driver be played by Eliza Dushku.
    • Had there been a second season, it would've focused on a new race and new characters, with first season characters taking on new roles in the race.
