Okay, here's the deal. The Earth got used up so a bunch of other planets got terraformed. Some were rich and flush with new technology, others had cows. The central planets formed the Conglomerate and offered peace and prosperity to the rest, but we decided to fight them anyway because we're all cool and anti-authoritarian and stuff. I'm Bon Arnold, captain of Ambivalence. She's a mosquito-class transport. Got a good crew - well, a crew, anyway. Fighters, a pilot, a mechanic. Even picked up a Father for some reason, and a bona fide pet. Got a doctor too, rescued his idiot sister from some Conglomerate lab so for some reason they think it's a good idea to hang out with a bunch of people who routinely get pulled in by law enforcement. You understand.
If you've got a job needs doing, we can do it. As long as it involves cows.
(Note to readers: if you didn't get the reference yet, don't bother reading the rest, just go watch the show and come back. Hell, I don't care if you come back, just watch it. For everyone else - I haven't seen the movie yet so you won't find any spoilers here... and please don't post any in the comments)
