Hmm. OK, well, I guess Sci-Fi sexism is pretty much the driving principle behind the storylines. Though I wouldn't have phrased it quite that way.
It pretty much started as this throwaway idea in "Night Shift", of a cheesy, gratuitous program that Wendell & Roberto enjoyed. (As per that first strip.) But Harry liked it too, so it had to be at least superficially worthwhile and enjoyable (Harry watches it for the T & A too, but he'd never admit it.) So, the more I thought about it, I thought it might be fun to do an actual strip and riff on those ideas, sort of a postmodern kitschy romp. Kinda like Xena: Warrior Princess, or, more to the point, Buffy The Vampire Slayer (which is a major inspiration, for the tone if not for the actual content--I like the alternation of comedy and dark, serious, action.)
Basically I wanted the stories, if they were summarized, to sound totally juvenile and gratuitous, and use ideas from cheesy 70s TV shows and such (hence the nods to Charlie's Angels and Fantasy Island) but the actual execution be fairly serious.
The strip's going to be more of the same--humourous SF adventure--for quite a while yet. But, I do have some ideas for future storylines that get a little more dark and intense. I'm an "upbeat" kinda guy, so it's not going to turn into "Spawn" or anything, but I wouldn't want things to get safe and predictable. I can't promise things won't change, or that characters won't die...
But, that's a ways away. I'll let you get nice and cozy first... 8)
