Author's Note: As a kid, my two favorite TV genres were westerns and detective shows. I finally decided to tackle both in a mix I’ve thought of as “Firefly CSI”. For the purposes of this story I have referred to the governing entity as The United Federation of Allied Planets, and will refer to both “The Alliance” and “Federation Law”.

Special thanks to maureen and evilmaniclaugh for excellent beta and their gracious guidance and to my own big_bad_man for helping me to pound out this convoluted plot. Remember, feedback is what writers (and muses) live for. If you enjoyed this story, please share it with others.
