    I think the whole reason she hooked up with the Guardians of the Galaxy is because of her past with the Starjammers. That Guardians crew were nothing but Starjammers plagiarized to me.


Could you perhaps elaborate? I find it hard to wrap my head around this claim given that not only the original Guardians of the Galaxy and their series, but also pretty much all prominent individual members of the later incarnation debuted long before the first appearance of the Starjammers. Not being that familiar with the modern Guardians I may be wrong, but the similarity does not seem to go that much further than "a group of aliens and humans having adventures in space" (which would also cover e.g. the LSH).

If not then they certainly draw from the exact same archetypes.

Smart-ass human leader with his bad-ass alien girlfriend. Huge alien guy with his tiny alien companion. Another bad-ass alien guy with a blade thrown in. But the original Guardians did not fit this.

And yes, Rev, I think Farscape owes something to Starjammers, as well. Probably why I loved it so much.
