The year is 2517 and humanity has left the cradle of Earth-That-Was, scattered across the stars on hundreds of terraformed worlds. Some worlds are high-tech wonderlands ... while others are barren wastelands where the inhabitants struggle to eke out a marginal living.
On the dilapidated Firefly-Classfreighter transport Serenity, its motley crew labors to make a living on the fringes of galactic civilization on this new frontier. They'll do any job, both legal and not-so-legal to put food on the table and some fuel in the tank.
They weren't looking for trouble. But it seems that trouble has found them when they take on a passenger who is being hunted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime. Declared criminals by virtue of being in the wrong place in the wrong time, this motley crew has decided that if that's the case ... it's time to be outlaws and start looking for some trouble.
An American space western sci-fi television series, Firefly garnered a small but loyal fan base during its brief run. Even though the series was ultimately cancelled due to its poor ratings, it had a cult following which led to its expansion into the comic book and RPG media and a sequel movie, Serenity which continued the adventures of renegade Captain Mal Reynolds and his motley crew.
