The story revolves around Dandy, an alien-hunter. His job is to seek out new aliens never seen before, and receives a reward whenever he finds a new species. His mission is to find those new species faster than anyone else as he travels the galaxy. Together with the bucket-of-bolts robot QT and the dimwit alien Meow he picked up along the way, he comes into contact with new planets and their inhabitants.


.. with extra motivation from finding alien babes and hooters in space Laughing

I have to admit this looks interesting so far. Can't wait to see what it has to offer.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but these profiles make it seem like it's going to be straightforward, unpretentious, dumb fun, and I mean the positive kind of "dumb". As in, "if you want philosophy or depth, go look somewhere else, this ain't it".

So does Meow's bio kinda strike you as similar to that of Cat's from Red Dwarf?

^ I don't think it's that similar. Cat was a humanoid descendent of Dave Lister's cat plus two million years of evolution, not an alien. The British pop culture character that is, in fact, an alien from Betelgeuse was Ford Prefect from Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

It's pretty cool that one of the three (so-far) primary characters is an inhuman alien, albeit in a form we can recognize and better empathize with (a cat). Wonder how crazy designs will get in this show... Redline's were pretty rad in a kinda gross way.
