  • Serenity takes place approximately six months after the last Firefly episode, "Objects In Space". The events between the final episode of Firefly and the beginning of Serenity, including Inara and Shepherd Book leaving the ship, are chronicled in a Serenity three-part comic book series, written by Joss Whedon, called "Those Left Behind".

  • The Verse is the star cluster that was settled by the human folk who left Earth-That-Was and founded the Alliance. Using material compiled by Josh Awtry, The Verse appears to consist principally of a trinary star system, with two other stars orbiting a central one. The Core and Border Worlds orbit the central "White Sun." The second, "Red Sun," which orbits the central sun in an 80-year orbit, and its planets comprise the Rim and the Frontier. The third "Blue Sun" orbits the central sun in a 730-year orbit and has no planets listed (although it may at some point be revealed to have its own planetary system). Malcolm Reynolds states (in "Our Mrs. Reynolds") that there are over seventy "little earths" spinning about, all told. According to Awtry, there are "215 terraformed worlds and moons, seven gas giants, seven protostars and five distinct star systems that comprise the star cluster known as The Verse." Or just an abbreviation of Universe. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • The final battle in Serenity actually occurs in the upper atmosphere of a planet so there would be air for sound to travel through. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Even though the film had "disappointing" box office results, the DVD sales of the show and film have been overwhelming. Rumours had it that another film, whether a sequel or prequel, was in talks, but these have since been deemed false. In time, Joss Whedon had said, I've said repeatedly that I would love to make another movie with these guys, and that remains the case. It also remains the case that I'm booked up by Marvel for the next three years, and that I haven't even been able to get "Dr. Horrible 2" off the ground because of that. So I don't even entertain the notion of entertaining the notion of doing this, and wont. Couple years from now, when Nathan [Fillion]'s no longer [on] "Castle" and I'm no longer the Tom Hagen of the Marvel Universe and making a giant movie, we might look and see where the market is then. But right now, its a complete non-Kickstarter for me, Edit (Coming Soon)

  • He is bound by law five times for smuggling, tariff dodging, and transporting illegal cargo. He was a Sergeant in the Independent Army. 57th Brigade, and a volunteer. Awarded the Valor Commendation for the Battle of Serenity Valley. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Joss Whedon revealed that Wash and Bookwere killed off when the actors playing those roles could not commit to sequels. This posed a difficult problem for Whedon, as Universal wanted to be sure that sequels could be made easily if the first film was a success. According to Whedon, it was the lawyers on the film who suggested killing off the characters in order to make Universal more sure about the project. He was initially reluctant, but soon agreed it was the best (and possibly only) viable solution. Whedon's original 190-page script told the same story, but with all of the crew surviving.

  • It's possible, since Buffy/Angel and Cabin in the Woods all feature otherworldly threats and secret government organisations (the Initiative trying to exploit them, the Conspiracy trying to appease them, and Shield trying to combat them). Humanity may have left Earth to establish the Firefly/Serenity colonies after the Cabin in the Woods and Dollhouse apocalypses, and this would explain Paris being in ruins at the end of Alien: Resurrection. We also have the doll Miss Edith belonging to vampire Drusilla from Buffy/Angel in the basement in Cabin in the Woods; and Thor glimpsing the three figures dressed as a Wolf, a Ram and Hart in his dream in Avengers; Age of Ultron; Wolfram and Hart being the villains from Angel. A fun theory (similar to the Disney/Pixar-verse theory) was proposed by a fan and can be seen somewhere on the World-wide Web. Edit (Coming Soon)
