Westerns: In this episode, just after Rob explains to Boo about the energy detector they are delivering, he leans back in his seat, props his feet up on the console, and rests his head on his arms. When Rondu calls about Idealla, Rob sits up and pushes the visor on his helmet up, giving Rondu his full attention.
This is very much like something from a Western to me. Make Rob a sheriff in a cowboy outfit, and make Rondu a local --like maybe a miner-- rushing in to tell Sheriff Rob that some outlaw/outlaw gang has arrived, and Rob sits up and pushes his hat up on his head. How Western can you get? "_"
