Default Terran Corsair Warrior!

So, I ranted on the IMDB about how American Ninja Warrior has nothing to do with Ninjas or medieval Japanese samurai. And it got me to thinking about the original Japanese version of the show. So, I had a gander, and it made me wonder. I'll bet in the "Far Future" there'll be a holovid show that has Solis (Terrans) navigating a water based obstacle course that will hearken back to the age of early Vargr Corsairs raiding the Imperial Main. Images of majestic wolf like soldiers wearing really cool armor or flashy dress uniforms and armed with some super-sleek weapon striking a pose for the cameras.

When in reality it's just Solis in leotards trying to make it from point A to point B without going into the drink.

Which brings up another idea ... what kind of game shows exist in the Imperium or Soli space. There's a game show in Japan called Wall of Boxes, but I lost the YouTube link, and am too lazy to look it up right now. Some guys sit on a wall of cardboard boxes, and various people and things try to come and knock them down.
