Storyline

During the annual major SciFfi convention, Nebula 9 - super-fan Audrey O'Neill, who finally organized with a nerd couple a life performance there starring the short-lived series' original cast as well after decade of 'webipsodes', is found dead on set, killed with a real 'space laser', of which only two working ones were custom-made. Castle, who has better taste, is amused to find Becket was part of a college fan gang. The team works out various personal, career and business motives as well as opportunities for cast and crew.

Trivia

When Castle first hears that the crime scene is the Nebula-9 ship, he starts bashing the show and says, "I'm a fan of good sci-fi. Star Trek, Battlestar, that Joss Whedon show!" 'That Joss Whedon show' was Firefly where Nathan Fillion played Captain Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds. See more »

Quotes

Kate Beckett: [about Alexis] Castle, she is a full-grown woman.
Richard Castle: Who, as we speak, is being ogled by thousands of sweaty, lecherous fanboys. It's just so... wrong.
Kate Beckett: Can I just point out the fact that the costume that she was wearing is not so different from the one that you are asking me to wear?
Richard Castle: Don't say that! That... It's so confusing and disturbing.

Castle References to Firefly
15 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Did you know? When Caste is first belittling the "Nebula 9" series to Beckett, he contrasts it to good sci-fi shows, "Star Trek, Battlestar, that Joss Whedon show. . .". Joss Whedon was the screenwritter and creator of the 2002-03 TV sci-fi series, Firefly, in which Nathan Fillion also starred. This one of at least 3 references, probably more, which Castle makes in various episodes to the Firefly series. Another is when he dresses up as a space cowboy for Halloween, and Molly Quinn tells him the costume is so 6 years ago. The third reference I know of is when he unexpectedly speaks Chinese. When Beckett asks how he learned Chinese, Castle explains it was from some TV show he used to like.
