Nathan Fillion, in answer to the question:
If Castle had its series finale tomorrow and Fox said to you and Joss: “We screwed up, let’s try doing Firefly again.” Would you do it?
Wow, from a distance I really thought this was a firefly class ship! (Step away from your computer, about 10 paces…you’ll see)
It was ejected from the International Space Station on February 3, 2006. It carried an amateur radio beacon that was activated in the two meter band. Using a simple police scanner or ham radio, you could listen to a disembodied spacesuit circling Earth. On September 7, 2006, at 16:00 GMT, Suitsat re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere over the Southern Ocean at 110.4° East latitude and 46.3° South longitude.
Yes. It’s that time of year where you begin thinking about what
you other people might want for the holidays—a time of giving. Let me help you with that. Here are some gift ideas ranging from the very reasonable to the bizarrely extravagant:
1. A Star Trek II TWOK replica phaser, $30
This toy should make any die-hard trek fan happy. Comes with a removable type-1 phaser. I can’t wait to
buy give this to someone for the holidays!
2. A Serenity Tote Bag, $10
This bag would make a nice gift for anyone who misses Firefly. So simple, so inexpensive, so easy. I miss Firefly.
3. BSG Senior Officer Pin Set , $29.99
Instead of telling someone how much you love them this holiday season, why not promote them? Actions speak louder than words.
4. Stargate Atlantis Gate Necklace, $715.50
Now that’s an odd price. $715.50? Is that how much it costs to open a tiny, stable wormhole to the Pegasus Galaxy?
Fox has decided to greenlight a new tv series that combines the western with science fiction. The producers should probably be warned that their show may forever be known as “Not Firefly.”
If there’s any ship in the verse I’d like to live on, it’s Serenity. That kitchen gives me the chills every time I see it, with the old wooden table in the middle, the mismatched chairs, the strange utilitarian cabinets that hold everything in place. I’m totally in love with this ship. It may not have the amenities of the Enterprise, but damn, it’s got one hell of a living room. Plus that pull out wall-toilet? Space-saving madness! Serenity gets bonus points for envisioning what living in space might realistically look like. No sanitized cabins with galaxy views and postmodern furniture. Just the same old stuff you had on Earth, but crammed into your crew quarters.
I know. Realistic + science fiction? Crazy! Oh wait…
If you, like me, are fantasizing about someday turning your incredibly tiny apartment into a Serenity inspired alcove of awesomeness, check out this site for useful screenshots, ship plans, and other goodies.
