They sort of improved the SFX when they re-edited and re-released the whole thing as Starhunter Redux a couple of years ago. They even brought back key cast members and re-shot a re-written version of the series ending.

The second season (of either version) involves numerous cast/character changes, but also takes the opportunity to introduce a nice twist to the whole setting: because of overlapping jurisdictions and newly-introduced personal/professional relationships, the ownership of the Tulip comes into dispute, with the principal characters generating three competing claims among themselves.

Also, in terms of self-contained one-system adventure settings, do not overlook the CT boxed adventure settings Tarsus and Beltstrike; both provide detailed star system information, locations, and storylines. I have used each of then on occasion over the years for short, but full, campaigns that do not require me to dig out and pore over a subsector map while repeatedly thumbing through the various procedural-generation checklists in Book 6 on a regular basis. They are kind of the gold standard for such things among the official/licensed publications.

On a different note, no list of reasonably hard sci-fi, intra-solar-system bounty hunting TV-plus-movie series would be complete without mentioning the anime classic Cowboy Bebop, of course.

So yeah, single-system adventuring is definitely an option on the table.

And there is then always Firefly (and Serenity), which brings us full circle.

These have long intrigued me. Excellent reminder/suggestion!
