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)
