Storyline

In the first half of the original pilot episode, the crew of Serenity takes on several passengers and make their way to another planet to try and sell goods they salvaged from a wrecked ship. Their efforts are impeded, though, when Wash and Mal realize that there is an undercover alliance fed on board. In the second half of the original pilot, Simon struggles to save Kaylee, and in turn River and himself while Mal, Zoe, and Jayne attempt to unload the cargo from the salvage to a trigger-happy mayor of a border moon.

Goofs

Early on in the episode, when Mal, Zoë and Jayne are breaking into the vault of a derelict carrier in space, we see Mal floating upside down looking at the spaceship's vault. The 'sticky' explosive that Mal asks Jayne for seconds later can already be seen on and around the vault lock. See more »

Quotes

Kaylee: I'd sure love to find a brand new compression coil for the steamer.
Mal: Yes, I'd like to be king of all Londinium and wear a shiny hat. Just get us some passengers. Them as can pay. All right?
Kaylee: If the compression coil busts, we're drifting.
Mal: Best not bust then.

The luckdog you are incorrect this is the best show ever
18 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent story and details are great. Take it from one that has been a fan of Sci-Fi. The story is great and will live on as Star Trek has lived on long after the show was cancelled. I am looking forward to the next movie as I am sure other fan's are across the world. Zoe is the best as well as the rest of the crew. I love her husband and the captain Mel. The show was on late and cancelled before I knew it was on. I bought the DVD and fell in love with the show and the characters. Joss Whedon is the best and a great story teller. The guy Jane is so lovable and the ship is the best. Zoe is so very very cool and River's character is the very very best. I cannot say enough about the series except it ended way to soon.
