Trivia

Joss Whedon intended the show to have run for seven seasons. While there were low ratings at first, the real reason it was cancelled was that the FOX executives thought it was too dark. Joss Whedon and the cast refused to change the storyline, so FOX Network canceled it with only 11 episodes out of 14 airing on the network. Prior to its cancellation fans formed a Firefly Immediate Assistance campaign which involves sending in postcards to the FOX Network to support the production of the show. After that didn't work, the campaign worked on getting another network such as UPN to pick up the series for a second season. The campaign ended up being unsuccessful in securing the continuation of the show.


Quotes

Mal: You're part of the crew. Why are we still talking about this?


Goofs

In commentary for Firefly: Shindig (2002), costume designer Shawna Trpcic states that Gina Torres wears her lariat necklace "binding" her neck as symbolic of her marriage bond. However, Zoe is shown wearing her lariat necklace in the flashbacks of Firefly: Out of Gas (2002), which take place before Zoe meets her future husband.


Alternate Versions

The two-hour pilot "Serenity" also featured a scene in Simon's cabin with him and Zoe: he's listening to an encyclopedia entry on the Battle of Serenity Valley, from which the ship gets its name, and she comes in and gives an eyewitness account of it, from Mal commanding over 2000 people after a week due to high officer casualties, to both sides stacking corpses for cover, to medical relief for both sides being held back for a week after a cease-fire was declared, to her and Mal being the only survivors of their platoon, and that she'd kill Simon on a word from Mal.
