Great funny moments, there, and a great cutting between the space battle and the Engi slap fight with Cremity. That's close to my favorite moment of the series; I'm not sure if it's this or the Scrap Rap from sector 1.

I beg to differ - while I love most of the series, the boarding fight was a huge letdown for me. No alarm, no barricading, no clever use of venting rooms ( ;) ), all possible cliches of "wanna be grade B hollywood" fight scenes (like attackers waiting for defenders to fully arm before starting shooting), pokemon-like fight scenes of rockman ("rockman used rock fist... it was super effective1!1!!1"), etc, etc. Fortunately, post-boarding scenes save the episode.

But, I see "scrap rap" as worst scene in the series (with boarding fight holding glorious 2nd place), so I can imagine that people loving the pokemon song may like pokemon fight scene ;)

I still hope that my favorite character so far - this baddass rebel female general (raven?) will live up to the hype of awesome entry that she had.

How can you not like The Scrap Rap? That was the best thing ever seen, done or eaten (well second-best to Limozeen In Space) and the reactions of the crew were priceless. "Put me back on that desolate rock where you found me!"

But I agree, the boarding fight wasn't that great. However boarding in FTL isn't that great either. It pretty much is a slap fight between the crew until one is free to use a gun.
So why are people so disappointed when the in-game boarding operations are pretty bad?

Well, I, - for one - see the on-screen slap fight as just mere representation that crew is fighting, with the imagination taking rest of work, to "see" how it really looks (just like we imagine that our ship is actually flying, on screen it's stationary ;) ). I can imagine that doing the boarding scenes - even as they are - was pretty hard to do anyway, and I wouldn't, certainly, animate it better. Still, somehow, I think that it was more lacking in the "scenario" department, than actual realization.

I know almost nothing about Pokemon, and didn't know either thing was in any way related. That could only add to my enjoyment.

I agree with stylesrj, the scrap song was pretty good, wasnt just a 5 second song idolized for more than what its worth. The crews reaction to it was funny.
The boarding fight wasnt as bad as you described it, but maybe I just have a bad taste in action films? Idk. : P
Honestly I didnt mind. The combat scenes were getting a bit old, but I couldnt really expect anything else, since its FTL.

I still continue to enjoy it. One of my favorite animations Ive come across.

I just noticed that when the Kestrel goes through the debris field to grab some "Scrap!" *music* that it picks up a gear, a power converter and a rusty antenna. No cooler of snacks or a jar of Nutella though.

Coincidence that both the Scrap Rap and the boarding fight are hated? :lol:

Is it wrong to say that I'm one of the few that actually liked the boarding scene? It may not have been accurate to what the game does, and a bit hollywood style but it was cool looking. (Also engi death screams are amazing. Wish they were like this in-game.)

As for the scrap rap? In my opinion it could have been better, but still it was quite funny.
