Look, I'll be the first to admit that 98% of dubs are very far from "good".
I'm that guy at anime club who cringes and starts to complain if they say "We are watching this one dubbed, folks!"
But I have to say that the Outlaw Star dub was not a bad dub. It was very honestly done and did the show a service.
Also, your pointing out an oxymoron is incorrect, I did not use "good" and "dub", I used "not bad" and "dub".
Part of it may be the fact that I first saw outlaw star along with Cowboy bebop, Big O, NGE, Dragonball Z ane more besides during a magical time that Sci-fi channel and Toonami showed good anime at sane times. That was how I got into the medium.
