I'm looking for its history from the late 70s when it probably was made. Who built it? Why? What's the rest of the story?

Bob, we started on the project, but as I recall there might have been only two or three episodes aired, so we pretty much figurerd out is wasn't going to fly (pardon the pun). So it looks like Mike Hellmund has the only evidence we put any effort into it at all. I didn't know he kept it. It really was clunky anyway. That's what you get when Hollywood producers design spcaecraft with no working knowledge and then write really stupid scripts.
