Fear and Loathing
I'd think that's basically fine, but only if Ryder remains a hilarious death machine that murders their laser maxim gun toting goons in ridiculous numbers. And you listen can in on their comms while they become more and more unhinged. Basically turn it into an anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist power trip.In my version the Kett would be the "Reapers". Much like the Britts were during the Age of Sail. You're the underdog, they have laser maxim guns, their contempt for you savages is unbearable. You win the fight, it's harrowing and heroic... But it's just a small private expoitation force owned by a second-rate company. There's an entire galaxy dominated by those imperialists out there...
