Being a browncoat is sharing a powerful love of this little cancelled show with an extended family of friendly folk all across the world. It's not really a costume thing, or any such artificial construct. Most of us call ourselves browncoats because something about the show resonates very strongly with us, and when we discover other people with whom we have that in common, friendships are born.

well, I guess it's fair to compare Browncoats to Trekkies, (always partial to DS-9 and the new Enterprise myself) We are certainly as devoted to our show as Trek fans are. And it was the Trekkie base that resulted in so many movies being made long after the series was dead, and spawned more series afterward. Here's hoping we have the same success!

Yep, i'd been thinking 'bout this some myself. I'd been a trekkie since the time of Kirks Enterprise, then Picards (which was IMHO was the best trek ever) and then on to Star Wars. I liked them but it wasn't life changing---not until firefly. Then it seemed that Firefly was eeriely mirroring some aspects of my life. Example: How Mal and the crew keeps struggling just to keep the boat flying. A lot of work, risk and heartache but at the end of the day, surrounded by loving family, it's enough. And lots of other examples that i guess a whole lot of us can relate to. So i became a Browncoat---guess i was one even before i saw Firefly! :)

...crazy independent; believes in the impossible; not sure if the losing side is the wrong one...and yes, belongs to a family.
