Yep, though I doubt if they do do any more they will have that gap of time, which is a shame. I found it nice to have a group of 60 plus folks (even though they were on anti aging meds according to the books.) kicking the lights out, and running rings round the bad guys. Also the final fate of each crew member is actually good and fits, especially Amos...I hear that there is a time jump of 30 years in the books which is why they decided to stop here.
Susan has said this consistently about every complaint made. I guess the TV series just isn't as good as the books (or at least, not as well planned - they didn't really add Clarissa "Peaches" Mao until last season, so her late addition seemed to be quite forced, but surely someone involved with the TV series had read all the books first?)All I can say that in the book it is handled better.
Yep, the books are a hell of a lot better, very detailed, and I suppose slow, as there is a lot of character development, politics, the various societies, also a number of characters have been omitted, or condensed into others. Losing the Alex character altered the story line a lot, but that was beyond the show's control and rightly done due to the actor's behaviour.Susan has said this consistently about every complaint made.

I've just realised from this thread that there are only 6 episodes in Season 6. I can't believe they are going to round this off in the 2 episodes that I have left to watch. Even just the "resurrection" story developing on Laconia can't possibly conclude that quickly.
The whole idea of this series pushing Bezos into poverty is a wonderful piece of irony!This, unfortunately, final season went completely under my resuming series radar.
I thought it matched the quality of the previous seasons, despite being short-changed to six episodes. It could have traveled a little farther along the Laconia "dog" species storyline, which might have been started before Bezos decided the series production costs might push him into poverty.
Time to read the books.
