    "Does life in the black always end up with someone jumping out the airlock of a ship in motion, kilometers away from anything else with atmo and relying on exo suit thrusters to get them to a ship with a jerry-rigged remote hatch lock, before their O2 runs out?"

    Two familiar faces work together to steal something a very rich person doesn't need and give it to another very rich person who doesn't need it, as it’s transported from Luna to the Ganymede Exotic Floral Exhibition. It’s a flawless plan, but they didn’t count on running into the law.

The Expanse but Hopepunk

Or Firefly but made by good people. This anthology show has everything--great writing, great acting, and heart at the center of it all.

Anne Onimous II ,

Fascinating Sci-Fi adaption of western stories.

I'm loving the way different western stories and tropes are identified to a sci-fi setting. Rich characters and fascinating stories. Love it!

Richard KL ,

Diverse and Inclusive Space Western Anthology

If you like the world building of shows like Firefly or the Expanse, this has all that in spades but importantly has representation of marginalized folks. The casts and stories are well written and acted, and the anthology format means you can jump in anywhere and still enjoy the show.

You'll hear stories about civil unrest on colonies run by massive corporations, lonely asteroid miners, salvagers, and everything else you'd expect from a show dealing with people living on the frontiers of the solar system.
