Alpha Blue is a great blend of the old style Sci-Fi B-Movies. The kind where the story had good ideas but it had no budget, or the whole thing was so bad it was good.
The game system is very stream lined and offer quick resolution of skill checks as well as combat. If the members your group can play "any type" of character, your group can be up and running in a few minutes by rolling a few character charts.
But the real goody bits is in the setting. Several sections of the Alpha Blue station are creatively described just enough to get your imagination going. There are many story seeds that are also available to help get the ball rolling. Choosing to go with a setting that explores the underbelly of debauchery or taking the higher ground as an "Aftermath Scene Investigation" team, Alpha Blue has you covered.
The PDF is nicely laid out, with easily readable sections and great background graphics. Navigating the PDF is easy using the hyper links.
The artwork is superb and if you look at the details, you may even get a laugh. There some pages with excessive white space where it would have been nice to have more pictures or content.
