So, not much has been speculated about the actual plot to the new show. Even though the "plot", as it were, has always been secondary, I have a theory about the new plot.
Jonah "Heston" will be a janitor. A space janitor. More specifically, he owns or runs or works at a space junkyard. Maybe owned by Gizmonics. The concept art from February shows his space garbage scow towing space junk. He finds the Satellite of Love, it gets fixed up somehow (probably by Kinga) and he's marooned with Tom and Crow.
I got the idea while thinking about the character Mike played in 309-Earth vs The Spider, The Custodian of the Seventh Galaxy from the planet Ziffelodian, his people provide custodial services to the rest of the galaxy.

Try this one: the new series is a sequel and a prequel. In between Season 7 and Season 8, didn't Crow come back to the ship and live like 500 years before Mike and Tom came back? Maybe the new series takes place during that time, with one of the "spare" Tom Servos. It could even be a nod to Crow remembering Tom but not Mike.
