Highlander, Duncan MacLeod

I am really enjoying watching the Highlander TV series on

Not that there isn't an occasional annoying episode but... don't care.

This is a great series. About five or so years ago it played in New York at 3 in the morning and I would watch it religiously.

So lets unwrap her backpack a little (to steal a metaphor). Stories about space pirates are Space Opera, generally.  "Soft" science in science fiction usually refers to sociology or psychology, social "science".  A story about space pirates might be "soft".  But that's picking nits.  The first big boo-boo is this: "not as popular *because* it is women
