YMMV: Quentyn Quinn, Space Ranger

  • Anvilicious: While the comic raises some points about The Federation, it does get grating after a while and seems to offer absolutely no points showing the good things that they do, making them a strawman to beat upon.
  • Marty Stu: The main character. He's nearly unbeatable; smarter and saner than almost anyone else; and never, ever wrong, no matter what. Of course, unlike his ancestor, Quentyn had to go through a rigorous training program to become a ranger. It's stated in the opening that rangers are essentially considered elite professionals: best trained, best equipped, the cream of the crop of all the forces of the empire. They have to be in order to operate pretty much independently for extended periods in potentially hostile environments. It helps if you consider the main character as the sci-fi equivalent of a Green Beret, a Navy Seal, or a Spetsnaz.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Whatever the ambassadors did, the Confidantine considers it unforgivable enough to stretch her oath of secrecy), and it appears Quentyn agrees.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The And I Must Scream fate of the neural templates.
