I'm sure if they went the Firefly route, as I hope they do, they could come up with a pretty good overall plot to go with it. Perhaps a buisness deal went bad and you and your crew got double crossed and now your tracking down those who screwed with you. Or maybe someone you care about has been kidnapped and you are forced into a life of crime in order to free them. Those are just 2 ideas I came up with off the top of my head. God knows what the writers at Bioware could come up with. I'm curious as to what kind of ship you could operate. I'm sure they wouldn't stick you with one of those god awful looking Earth freighters seen in the games so far. Hopfully we would get something with a more interesting, aged and lived in look like Serenity, The Millenium Falcon, or even the vastly underrated Betty from Alien Resurrection.
