"There just isn’t enough out there for girls, and that was something that I certainly grappled with when I was younger as an avid sci-fi fan. When girls are featured, it’s often only in a supporting role. When I came up with the initial “kid in a spaceship” idea, I immediately wanted it to feature a swashbuckling heroine to help balance things out a little and hopefully provide young girls with a protagonist that they can relate to."
