** A few of the Rangers get the short end of the stick on this front. Yankee Star's pilots Tanisha Davis and Caleb Mitchell get flak for not only being a mixed-raced partnership, but also for Tanisha's less than svelte figure and Caleb's homosexuality and ''freckles''. Ilisapie Flint, one of the pilots of Chrome Brutus, gets similar flak to Tanisha for her "heavier" physique.
** Shaolin Rogue's female pilot, Fei-Yen Wang, has the opposite problem: she's so attractive that PR has pushed her wiry, gangly Drift partner, Huan Che, to the side to showcase her as their media darling. The fact that they're supposedly dating doesn't help matters at all.

The story serves as a prequel to the Pacific Rim movie, drawing from many trustful sources the author could find. It tells the tale of Raleigh and Yancy Becket as they enter the Academy, become the pilots of Gipsy Danger and the life of rangers and their crew during the Golden Age of the Jaeger program. A sequel called "Aurora Australis" is on the way, this time focused on the Australian team of Herc and Chuck Hansen. There is also a side story, "Tales From The Front Lines" which is a series of one-shots expending on the background and lives of several characters. And is also quite funny to read ...
