With Solar Systems as their playing fields, hotshot rocket-jockeys knock big ol' rocks around gravity wells and planetary orbits, risking life and limb and continental devastation in hopes of slingshotting to intergalactic fame. Lucky Starr is an up-and-coming reporter embedded with the Pirates to record their meteoric rise, and discovers she has more in common with them than she would ever have suspected. K quotes Thor Odinsson from Avengers: Infinity War despite not having seen the film. Khaki hosts a fashion show.. Find CoverMyAssCast on Twitter, Gmail and www.covermyasscast.com.
