you are correct, it is kindof an anachronistic sort of premise. (BTW the revolver is actually some kind of laser pistol i think.) in the show, humanity has spread far and wide across the galaxy, much like the westward expansion in the US. worlds are terraformed then colonized with settlers, provisions, cattle, etc. somehow the culture of this time reverted to a wild west type of thing, presumably due to the structure of this settler society. there's no transporters like star trek, limited FTL travel i think, so interstellar law enforcement becomes more difficult. one neat feature they put in the show, all the slang is in chinese. (think bladerunner.) i...am...so...geeky. omigod.
