This is how it is, Earth that was got all used up. So we went out and colonized a whole new system with dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. Some rich and flush with the new technologies and some not so much. Central planets decided to form the Alliance and some poor idiots decided to fight them. The independents lost and now both sides are still recovering from the scars left behind. Its been 6 years and the Crew of Destiny take any job offered as long as it pays.
A space western set in Joss Whedon's Firefly/Serenity universe. The system used is the Serenity RPG rule set.
