In season 1 that's set in 2275, a team of three bounty hunters in their spaceship dubbed Tulip chase after space criminals. Things get bad when they stumble upon a conspiracy involving experiments with alien DNA and the human genome. In season 2 that's set in 2300, bounty hunter Travis Montana and his female cousin Percy patrol the galaxy hunting criminals. Travis, who was kidnapped as a baby by Raiders, searches for his lost father Dante while investigating the secrets of the mysterious Dvinity Cluster. Due to cancellation, the show ends on a major cliffhanger. Written by
Thisb is how sci-fi should be. In addition to some better than average special fx (and in many episodes Lots of them) Starhunter has ideas, not since early Star Trek or the first seasson of X files has a TV series trusted the viewer to arm wrestle with some questions. ORDER is my favorite episode this way. A life and death struggle in which everyone's faith, or lack of it, is challenged -no cliches or sacherine answers, but humour is rocks along with it.
Dante and Percy are cool characters, and they rarely do the expected. Yeah, maybe there wasn't to much money -I can't tell for sure- but it gives you something most TV doesn't. Hope there's a second season!
