Like that wide-open cosmic environment? Kreegor, CCW, and all that? Head off to a Redbox and rent Guardians of the Galaxy. That's the best example going of a RIFTS Space Opera campaign as it's usually played. Rag-tag crew, often on the wrong side of the law, and yet able to do what the law fails to do because reasons.
Don't say it's not an example of how the game actually plays. It does, just like D&D's accurately shown in Knights of the Dinner Table. Go see it if you haven't, take notes, and enjoy.
