I dunno - I think Rogue worked when he was, in theory, wandering an entire planet lokoing for clues to find someone he wanted serious revenge against, getting caught up in war stuff as and when it interfered.

It makes sense that he's programmed to follow a mission, so when that mission ended he couldn't just wander aimlessly. And no writer ever found a convincing mission for him, until they went the flashback route.

Would have loved it to carry on just with Rogue endlessly wandering Nu Earth in a perpetual quest to find the Traitor General until eventually he forgets all about him and carries on mindlessly killing Norts each week because, well, that's what he's been genetically programmed to do, then in prog 2000 or whatever someone says to him "Have you caught the Traitor General yet?" and he just stares at them blankly (or more blankly than normal, even) and replies "The what?"

Each new episode for thirty years is literally just him stumbling across another las-nest full of Norts and slaughtering them in exactly the same way

Meanwhile his bio-chips' data cores are gradually degrading and they're becoming completely insane. By now all they can do is scream

Relentlessly

Obviously that would compromise Rogue's stealth abilities, so he puts their audio on a closed radio loop so only they can hear each other
