Can anyone tell me if the capt. of the serenity was (as an aside) looking for his lost son?

If not maybe i'm confusing the show with another while the actor remains the same.

Please help if you can.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


There was never any mention of Mal ever having a son. Obviously another show you are thinking of, as well as possibly another actor.

Starhunter, maybe ? Firefly fans are better at starting disputes than settling them, though

Not to be pedantic, but Mal did mention having 'hundreds of little ones' in "Our Mrs. Reynolds." He was only speaking in the hypothetical, however, so the conclusion is sound. Must be somebody else.

Purple belly is right your probably thinking of Starhunter, but the shows had different actors.

Nathon Fillion is the captian on Firefly while Michael Paré is the captian on Starhunter.

Are you sure it wasn't Dargo on Farscape??


*snicker*

As if one could confuse the great Captain with that great... oh, right... Captain.

There's a good joke in there somewhere... I just ain't got time to find it...

Right, right. Good call. Mal's line, directly following is "Could you imagine that? Me, with a whole passel of critters underfoot..."

and yet the captain having children is a far better thought than Jayne having children.. now there is a huge possibility!

I think Jayne would be a great Dad. We already know he's big on family and if he settled down, he'd probably be one of those really cool parents with hundreds of amazing stories to tell that you never quite knew if they were true.

But then again, if Firefly had made 7 seasons, a random child for one of the crew would have turned up (maybe Inara?)

Yanno, I was gonna say that due to his lifestyle Jayne prolly already had a few less than legit offspring running around, but then it occurred to me (thanks to the not-kissin-them-on-the-mouth comment) that he's a lot craftier than most take him for, and not a really trusting soul...

Ergo, he prolly plays it pretty safe on that aspect of things.

Pineknot, I agree that it's quite likely Starhunter that you're thinking of - in my early days of watching Firefly when I wasn't really a fan yet, I got the two a bit confused as well. Similarities: the Starhunter captain (whatever his name was) was also into renegade, less-than-legal business (in his case, bounty hunting) on a ship that didn't necessarily work all the time and had young female engineer working by herself to keep it running, and a light-skinned Black woman as second-in-command. I also vaguely remember that it had similar lighting, and also no aliens, and some big government-related conspiracy theories going - there may also have been some wild people a bit like Reavers (who I think had taken said son). The many, many differences from Firefly include that they all had British accents.

maybe your thinking of the other Joss Whedon show Angel starring David Boreanaz. He was looking for his son Connor. Angel season 3.

It was definitely Starhunter. It wasn't the worse show ever, but the guy who played the captain was a terrible actor. Although, and no one beat me, I like their mechanic/engineer person better than Kaylee. As for the success of the show, well, I found the first two DVDs at Big Lots.

Saw starhunter and boy was it bad. Honestly it was cliched and old even before it hit the air waves. I believe it was one of the worst of all sci-fi shows, maybe Firelfy if Lucas had written it, maybe it is a little worse than that. I liked the ships holographic representation it was ind of new but didn't make up for the show as a whole poorly done and poorly presented. But that is what i thought I am sure some people liked it.

Not Inara. She's too smart for that. I bet in the future there is a perfect birth-control shot type thingy, so there isn't any risk. A Jayne kid is plausible, since we all know he's big on his women and wouldn't be able to get a Companion, so must settle for normal whores... who probably wouldn't be able to afford that birth-control (Heart of Gold, anyone?)

The Captain in question is Dante Montana. His ship, the TULIP or Trans-Utopia Cruiseship Lines.

Percy Montana is the mechanic and Lucrecia Scott is the female ex-marine.

They are bounty hunters for a gentleman named Rudolpho DeLuna. Dante is indeed looking for his son Travis who was taken by the Raiders.

Yes, very much like Firefly but without the excellent acting and special effects.

IF you watch it, watch it with an open mind and try to see the potential in it. Had the writing been better and the director been capable enough to draw out the actors...

For the record, Micheal Pare isn't necessarily a bad actor... good roles just avoid him. With the exception of Eddy and The Cruisers.
