In the late 21st Century, Earth has been almost completely wrecked in a cosmic accident involving "hyperspace gates," and humanity has settled most of the Solar System with Mars being the center of human society. Travel between worlds, while not especially fast, is commonplace and reasonably safe, as long as you watch your fuel and your back. But wherever humanity goes, so goes its criminal element, and thus the need for those who hunt criminals. To help keep up with the rise in criminal behavior, the solar system police reinstated the bounty system of the Wild West. Cowboy Bebop is the story of the four inhabitants of the spaceship Bebop, and the living they barely make at bounty hunting. Hard-nosed ex-cop Jet Black, laid-back ex-hood and Kung Fu master Spike Spiegel, gorgeous con-artist Faye Valentine, and 13-year-old hacker-goddess / mad genius Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV (or simply Ed), along with Ein the genetically engineered "data dog," face dangerous criminals, occasional starvation, a particularly disgusting refrigerator, and their own dark pasts in this 26-episode series. Although the primary thrust is dramatic, there are moments of humor (some of them jarring, but mostly they work) leavening the story which, despite its episodic nature, carries along a continuing plot and builds to an explosive climax. One of the defining thematic choices the show makes is that everything has a rich backstory but almost nothing is explained in full; the stories are concerned with the problems in the present and so only an implied history is given.
