Ships of the Northern Fleet TV Show Wiki

Captain Anders Hellman was the main character and captain in the spinoff series Into The West. The TV adaptation starred Alan Tudyk as Anders Hellman. Unfortunately, the short-lived series only lasted a season and a half.

The anime adaptation also uses Anders as its primary protagonist, instead of George.

Originally in the books, the relationship between Anders and the rest of the Hellman family was never made clear. But due to some fan backlash in response to the anime adaptation, he was retconned as George Hellman's time-displaced son from a parallel universe.

Into The West never addressed Anders's parentage, mostly due to its short life span.
