** The gate incident happened in 2021, Faye's accident was never stated to have happened at the same time. All we know is that all records of it are gone due to the gate incident

*** Not NASA, but the Soviets did provide their Cosmonauts withe firearms as part of a survival package. Additionally, they also mounted a machine gun on one of their space capsules for test firing.

** That scene was presented to us the same way ''every'' death had been shown in the series, and this is a universe were death is not cheap, where cheating death is a major deal (Spike's occasional Wile E. Coyote levels of accident-surviving-shenanigans notwithstanding). As such, I agree that there's no other way ''to'' take the scene but Spike's dying at its culmination.

** The gates are a part of the whole SpaceWestern theme: they're the railroads that bring people to the frontier.

*** THe way This Troper has heard it explained before is that Gren couldn't let go of his past and was so fixated on the war and Vicious. At the end of hte sries, Spike lets go and is able to free himself. Which is double-tragic but sort of makes sense...

** I don't think it was fear of death (Spike's pretty resigned to that), just horror that the world had stopped making sense. A decaying orbit means you're going to be incinerated on reentry, which is a natural phenomenon and one of the risks you take when you climb into a starfighter. A fat maniac who makes bullets ''stop happening'' and only obeys physics when it's convenient is... not normal, in a very visceral sense.

* The episode where Faye gets involved with collecting a Casino Chip from Spike, it contains data for accessing a major computer program that the equivalent of Interpol has been looking for years for. Why, after the "bad guys" are killed, is the chip worthless after the episode is over? Wouldnt there still be a reward from the Interpol group?

** I'm pretty sure the program itself was with the bad guys, the chip is worthless without it.

** Another possibility is that Ein manipulated them into it somehow, since he's significantly smarter than they are.
