In the year 2071, humanity has colonized most of the rocky planets and moons of the solar system. Amid a rising crime rate, the Inter Solar System Police (ISSP) set up a contact system in which bounty hunters – or Cowboys – chase criminals and bring them in alive for a reward. Spike Spiegel is a Cowboy working from the spaceship Bebop. He is joined by Jet, a former ISSP (Inter Solar System Police) officer. They are later joined by Ed, an eccentric young girl skilled in hacking; Ein, a genetically modified Welsh Corgi; and Faye Valentine, an amnesiac con artist. All of which embody the three things that Spike hates: kids, animals and women with attitudes.
