‘Way Too Much Fireflying’
Someone took the notion of an independent starship with a crew of half a dozen quirky individuals a bit far. Or Firefly has a lot to answer for. One of those.
‘Space cowboys’ never really made a lot of sense to me. I loved Firefly, it just didn’t really add up. For example, if you’re able to navigate from one star system to another I’d expect the available weaponry to be better than a six-shooter or a shotgun.
Well, this book is in the same kind of universe. It draws heavily on that Firefly ethos - a single ship, independent, trying to make money, big galactic events happening around them - but it felt a bit tired.
Maybe I’m just a bit jaded with the whole thing.
