Gene Starwind and his partner Jim Hawking run a small business on the backwater planet of Sentinel 3. But all that changes one day when a woman named Hilda hires them for a bodyguard job. Now, thrust into a mystery they do not fully understand, they are on the run from the police, the pirates, an angry alien, and a mysterious assassin. But they have got one thing going in their favor; they have the galaxy’s most advanced ship, the Outlaw Star. Gene Starwind dreams of life as an Outlaw, and fate smiles on him as he seems to suddenly wind up with a great job. But as things go awry, he finds himself the new owner of the fastest, most technologically advanced space ship in the galaxy. Unfortunately, it’s stolen and the owners, which are powerful space pirates, want it back. Along with his partner Jim and the lovely Melfina (an rare android that also belongs to the pirates), Gene must fight his way across the galaxy battling pirates, aliens, and assassins as he attempts to discover the secrets of the Outlaw Star and the Galactic Leyline.

Favorite Episodes: all episodes

“Even if you don’t break the law, don’t be tied down by it.” The Outlaw’s code is a code that I try to live by because laws were meant to be broken; I mean how else were laws made if they weren’t broken in the first place. Plus, its fun to mess around with the government every once in a while. I really like the ship’s computer Gilliam II. Gilliam has a smart ass personality because he thinks that the Outlaw Star’s crew is the worst crew he could have ever been put with and Gilliam laments on that issue every episode . Definitely two highlights in Outlaw Star’s are the main character’s personalities and their adventures. Though all the main characters of the series have very different personalities and pasts, they stick together no matter what. And the adventures that the main characters go on are epic because of the grappler ship battles. Grappler ships are space ships fitted with arms that are only on space pirate ships and the Outlaw Star. Grappler ships are outfitted with everything; missiles, guns, and so forth. So whenever there are grappler ship battles in Outlaw Star, there is a lot of fast-paced action, plenty of explosions, and a lot of close range combat with the grappler arms.
