Police Cops in Space

“From Earth's last escape pod I watched as the 'Best Damn Police Cop Ever’, my father, Jimmy Johnson, was murderer at the hands of an Evil Robot. As I blasted into the dark unknown I was only a boy, but I knew that if I was to become a man I couldn't just be the best damn Police Cop ever, I had to be the best damn Police Cop in space!"
