Yeah, made me wince too. one hope thea was red paint they used.

Gotta love the outtake scene tho, where Mal storms onto the scene telling everybody to put the bodies on the front of the ship with Book in a place of honor. The part that makes me think Nathan has an especially twisted sense of humor is when he tells 'Kay' to go find that boy that's sleeping with baby Jesus so they can use him as a hood ornament then yells for 'Jane' not to steal too much of their....stuff.

Don't put your head back down!! You're a Browncoat just by virtue of loving our beloved ship. You need your 'coat.....

There, you gotta have your 'coat! Welcome home!

You know before I saw Serenity I never thought of machines or ships as beautiful. It wasnt until recently when I was watching the BDM and I watched her soar through all the Reavers and Alliance ships that I loved watching her. I loved the way she gracefully maneuvered through spaces and space. I realized I was looking at her as when Mal looked at her for the first time and fell in love. Of course, I winced when she made that hard landing. I am trying to make a cross-stitching map of her so I can cross-stitch her and put her on my wall. My husband thinks i'm nuts! I wish there was an actual ship (one that cant fly of course) that we could go to and go inside and take pictures and pretend. If I had lots of land I think I would probably try to build one.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


Yay for de-lurking!
You don't wanna spend all your time just doing this anyway:

Okay, to be perfectly honest, Serenity herself actually took a little bit to grow on me. I remember watching the commercials for Firefly, during the hype right before it first aired and thinking "Smeg, but that's gotta be the ugliest ship I've seen in a good long time!"

'Course, now I'll defend her honor against anyone with the gumption to say anything bad about our favorite ship, but much like the theme song, it took a bit for it all to sink in, I think.

Actually, I still find her a bit lumpy and awkward-looking. But in a good way :) She ain't built for looks, after all. Kind of a "only a mother could love" sort of ugly. She ain't got much flash, but she'll get you where you're going, 'cause the getting there's the greater part :)

Like a certain other ship; she may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts.

I didn't read all the posts but as far down as I read I noticed my thoughts weren't posted yet. Sorry in advance if I was just too impantient to scroll down.

Anyways, I don't really think the outside of the ship is much to look at. It's old and beat up, but that's not why we love Serenity is it? Of course not! I love the inside of the ship though, what a genious design. So I forgive the big butt of the Firefly.

That said, I would live on the ship, it's open and has plenty of space for being a spaceship. The ship is unique though, you can't say you've ever seen a ship like it and I think that's another reason why we love it. It's new and original. Also, every time we see Serenity in the episodes or in the movie, there's a really good reason for it, and anyone thinking outloud says, "what an awesome ship!", am I wrong? Well just my thoughts. Hope I brought on a new perspective.

Serenity shows exactly what I would have for a ship.

First off let me say I'm from Texas, so my ideal house would a a double-wide on 300 acres of land, a small ranch, with a beat up Ford F-350 deisel 4x4.

Which makes serenity perfect for me. She's beat up, not much to look at, but perfect the way she is. She might not be the prettiest, sleekest, or fastest, but thats what makes her perfect. Shes like a beat up old truck, she will last forever. All the imperfections are just beauty marks.

The fact that she wont let you down makes her home, and the fact that you might have to fix a part on her makes her yours. You dont realise how much you love something you own till you fix her up yourself just the way you want her.

Welcome home, Stormfalcon70
and Oddsbodskins.
We like to provide coats and
strawberries to the newcomers
and de-lurkers.
So here's a little basket of
berries for each of you, and
a pair of invites up to the
galley for the traditional
Questioning of the Buffet.

When I think of Firefly or
Serenity I always picture the
galley with its warm amber glow
(see photo on home page -- great
wallpaper!) and the laughter
echoing in memory.

If I wanted to build the 195'
ship on my lot I'd have to put
it on the diagonal and bribe a
few city officials into allowing
me to violate some setback rules.

H'mmmm.
*thinks about it*

Y'all don't be strangers now, y'hear?

I agree, she's not sleek but she has a beauty and character of her own, and I fell in love with her right away.

So much so....I want one of my own! lol

(seriously, isn't it about time we got some nice models of the ship to grace our shelves/desks?)

There are two model kits of Serenity out there. I'm still working on the paper model (which is free, btw) http://www.chihuahuadepapel.com/ingles.htm and scroll down on the left until you find it. The instructions are in spanish, but they're not to difficult to figure out.

The other one is a bit more expensive. A resin kit can be found at http://www.starshipmodeler.com/cfstore/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.di
splay&Product_ID=580

for $85.00.

Oh, if you don't want to have to build it, there's an ornament at http://www.tfaw.com/Profile/Serenity-Ornament___217120?qt=ssda
It's not actually for sale yet, but you can pre-order it.

And yes, she's gorgeous. 'Course, I thought the Millenium Falcon was pretty cool, too. And she's the "Fastest Hunk-a-junk in the galaxy." But Serenity definitely beats her out.

Cool....I mean....SHINY! I'd probably ruin the whole kit trying to work orange LEDs into the glowy parts. The observation windows would have'ta have a homesome glow too. And where are the panels that close off the 'vents' back there for atmosphereric flight? See? I'd get all fancy and screw it up. $85!?!

I'll go fer the shiny ornament fer monetary and sanity sake, thank you. Nice stuff tho.
