Top Killjoys from around the Quad are pitted against one another in a race to find Big Joe, a legendary bounty hunter gone rogue.

Oh-Kay :unsure:

How does a bounty hunter go rogue?  Is he disposing of fugitives and refusing to collect the bounty?  Or is he gunning down his former associates?

^ Since the RAC (the organization that licenses Killjoys) seems to have a lock on bounty hunting activity in the system, this guy's probably doing his thing without being licensed by them, or was licensed and has broken their rules in some other way.

^ Exactly.  These are not freelancers, they work for the company and must follow the company's rules.  It was made clear to Dutch in the first episode, that the RAC counts on their reputation, as far as when and how a job is done.  And they don't want any employees to mess with that reputation.

^^^ Ahhh.  OK.

Having not seen the show, I did not know that.

Does the RAC have a monopoly on Killjoys, or are there rival companies that the RAC must compete with?  I'd think the latter, given their concern over Reputation.

^ It's more about access.  Their reputation is as a neutral third-party that isn't affiliated with any specific world or government, so their agents are given a lot of freedom to come and go almost anywhere in pursuit of a warrant without the red-tape and limitations that normal citizens have to deal with.

From the ep, it sounds like Joe took a bribe to let an acquisition go, then started taking paying non-bounty jobs that basically amounted to piracy-for-hire. So not so much "rogue" as "former."

There was also the issue that Joe was "one of our own," and the RAC wanted to handle this internally (because otherwise he'd be sent to a Company prison, where he'd likely be killed by the people he'd helped put away).
