"At last we have Jason X, a movie that comes right out and says: "Look there's nothing left to do, so fuck it, it's Jason in outer space!"
James Rolfe's review of Jason X

Stories are often recycled from other stories every now and then, possibly with an added gimmick, with the setting changed with just enough of a gimmick to make it look different. The characters will have the same character types, sometimes even the same voice actors. Sometimes these will be direct spinoffs, with the same characters with one major time or setting change. Later varieties included "AS KIDS!"


Putting the series into space, though, is the big one. This is because space has captured the public's imagination at least since the start of the space race, and science fiction authors and fans have been fascinated even longer.

Thus it's not unreasonable to think "Wouldn't that show be even better in outer space?"
