Story arcs in science fiction

One point brought out by Card in the article mentioned below, was how Star Trek lacked story arcs and character growth and how modern scifi shows have incorporated throughlines and longer story arcs.

Well Spakkadi, must've been thinking along the same lines. She's got a history of the story arc in SciFi TV up here. (Ok technically it's spec-fi, but I don't always differentiate).

She starts with the Twilight Zone and traces her way through Star Trek, the X-Files, B5, Buffy, Lost and BSG. An interesting read.
