Reviewers also criticized the predominant use of a heavily Chinese-influenced setting and culture while Asian characters in the show were "practically nonexistent.

Firefly generated a loyal base of fans during its three-month original broadcast run on Fox in late These fans, self-styled Browncoats, used online forums to organize and try to save the series from being canceled by Fox only three months after its debut.

Their efforts included raising money for an ad in Variety magazine and a postcard writing campaign to UPN. Navy ships by April for recreational viewing by their crews.

These and other continuing fan activities eventually persuaded Universal Studios to produce a feature film, Serenity. Numerous early screenings of rough film cuts were held for existing fans starting in May as an attempt to create a buzz to increase ticket sales when the final film cut was released widely on September 30, On June 23, , fans organized the first worldwide charity screenings of Serenity in 47 cities, dubbed as Can't Stop the Serenity or CSTS, an homage to the movie's tagline, "Can't stop the signal".

In July , a fan-made documentary was released, titled Done the Impossible , and is commercially available. The documentary relates the story of the fans and how the show has affected them, and features interviews with Whedon and various cast members.

According to the film's creator and producer, Whedon gave "his blessing" to the project. The film was sold on DVD and Blu-ray at the film's website, with all proceeds being distributed among five charities.

Firefly came in first place, with its cinematic follow-up Serenity in second. Brad Wright , co-creator of Stargate SG-1 has said that the th episode of SG-1 is "a little kiss to Serenity and Firefly , which was possibly one of the best canceled series in history".

In the episode, "Martin Lloyd has come to the S. Ten thousand people lined up to get into the panel, and the panel ended with the entire crowd giving the cast and crew a standing ovation.

A tenth anniversary special, Browncoats Unite , was shown on the Science Channel on November 11, The special featured Whedon, Minear, and several of the cast members, in a discussion on the series' history.

According to Reason ' s Julian Sanchez , Firefly ' s cult following "seems to include a disproportionate number of libertarians.

The characters each exhibit traits that exemplify core libertarian values, such as the right to bear arms Jayne, Zoe , legal prostitution Inara , freedom of religion Book , logic and reasoning Simon , and anti-conscription River.

He's the opposite of me in many ways. At the time the series was cancelled by Fox, it averaged 4. When he and Leonard Hofstadter are discussing their roommate agreement, they include a passage in which they dedicate Friday nights to watching Firefly , as Sheldon believes it will last for years.

Upon its cancellation, he brands Rupert Murdoch , the owner of Fox , a traitor. When Raj tries to hit on her he says that although he is an astrophysicist, she was actually in space during the shooting of Firefly.

Glau chides him for believing this and Raj backtracks, saying, "Those are crazy people! They have an agreement that if one of them dies, the other will stage it to look like a suicide caused by the cancellation of Firefly , in the hopes that it will bring the show back.

The webcomic xkcd commented on Firefly' s conspicuous absence of Asian characters in the comic "Well". When a character drops a coin into "The Uncomfortable Truths Well", it responds, "For a universe that's supposed to be half Chinese, Firefly sure doesn't have any Asians.

Critics have drawn comparisons and parallels between Firefly and the anime Outlaw Star. The television series Castle , where Fillion plays the lead character Richard Castle , has made ongoing homages to Firefly.

Castle has props from Firefly as decorative items in his home, has dressed up as a "space cowboy" for Halloween "You wore that five years ago," cracked his daughter , speaks Chinese that he learned from "a TV show [he] loved", and has made rapid "two-by-two" finger motions while wearing blue surgical gloves.

He has been humorously asked if he has ever heard of a spa known as "Serenity", and Firefly catchphrases such as "shiny", "special hell", and "I was aiming for the head" have been used as punchlines during various dramatic scenes in Castle.

He has worked a murder case at a science fiction convention with suspects being the cast of a long-cancelled space opera that only ran for a season, and has had incidental interaction with people portrayed by Firefly cast members.

Con Man , a comedy web series created by Tudyk and co-produced by Fillion, draws on the pair's experiences as cult science fiction actors touring the convention circuit.

Staite, Torres and Maher made guest appearances. Maher played himself as a former Firefly actor.

The popularity of the short-lived series served as the launching point for a media franchise within the Firefly universe, including the feature film Serenity , which addresses many plot points left unresolved by the series' cancellation.

Additionally, there are two comic-book mini-series , Serenity: Those Left Behind 3 issues, pages, , Serenity: Better Days 3 issues, 80 pages, and a one-shot hardcover Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale 56 pages, , along with the one-shots Serenity: Downtime and The Other Half and Serenity: Float Out in which Whedon explored plot strands he had intended to explore further in the series.

The comics are set, in plot terms, between the end of the TV series and the opening of the feature film. The two mini-series were later published in collected form as hardcover and paperback graphic novels.

A six-issue series titled Serenity: Leaves on the Wind began in January and the series takes place after the events of the film. Studios announced that they had acquired the comic book and graphic novel publishing license to Firefly with plans to release new monthly comic book series, limited series, original graphic novels and more.

In July , the release of video game Firefly Online was announced that planned to have the cast reprise their roles.

In January , Titan Books announced that they would begin publishing original canon Firefly novels. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

April 2, They are soft-bodied beetles that are commonly called fireflies , glowworms , or lightning bugs for their conspicuous use of bioluminescence during twilight to attract mates or prey.

Fireflies produce a "cold light", with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. This chemically produced light from the lower abdomen may be yellow, green, or pale red, with wavelengths from to nanometers.

Fireflies are found in temperate and tropical climates. Many are found in marshes or in wet, wooded areas where their larvae have abundant sources of food.

Some species are called " glowworms " in Eurasia and elsewhere. While all known fireflies glow, only some adults produce light and the location of the light organ varies among species and between sexes of the same species.

The form of the insect that emits light varies from species to species for example, in the glow worm found in the UK, Lampyris noctiluca , it is the female that is most easily noticed.

In the Americas , "glow worm" also refers to the closely related family Phengodidae. In New Zealand and Australia the term "glow worm" is in use for the luminescent larvae of the fungus gnat Arachnocampa.

Fireflies have a large amount of variation in their general appearance, with differences in color, shape, size, and features such as antennae.

Adults can differ drastically in size depending on the species, with the largest being up to an inch long. Although the females of some species are similar in appearance to males, larviform females are found in many firefly species.

These females can often be distinguished from the larvae only because the adults have compound eyes , although the latter are much smaller than those of their males and often highly regressed.

Most diurnal species are not luminescent; however, some species that remain in shadowy areas may produce light. Fireflies undergo a transformation called complete metamorphosis.

A few days after mating, a female lays her fertilized eggs on or just below the surface of the ground. The eggs hatch three to four weeks later, and the larvae feed until the end of the summer.

The larvae are commonly called glowworms not to be confused with the distinct beetle family Phengodidae or the fly genus Arachnocampa.

Lampyrid larvae have simple eyes. The term glowworm is also used for both adults and larvae of species such as Lampyris noctiluca , the common European glowworm, in which only the nonflying adult females glow brightly and the flying males glow only weakly and intermittently.

Fireflies hibernate over winter during the larval stage, some species for several years. They emerge in the spring. After several weeks of feeding on other insects, snails, and worms, they pupate for 1.

The larvae of most species are specialized predators and feed on other larvae, terrestrial snails , and slugs. Some are so specialized that they have grooved mandibles that deliver digestive fluids directly to their prey.

Adult diet varies: some are predatory, while others feed on plant pollen or nectar. Some, like the European glow-worm beetle, Lampyris noctiluca , have no mouth.

Most fireflies are distasteful to many vertebrate predators. This is due at least in part to a group of steroid pyrones known as lucibufagins , which are similar to cardiotonic bufadienolides found in some poisonous toads.

Light production in fireflies is due to a type of chemical reaction called bioluminescence. This process occurs in specialized light-emitting organs , usually on a firefly's lower abdomen.

The enzyme luciferase acts on the luciferin , in the presence of magnesium ions, ATP , and oxygen to produce light. Gene coding for these substances has been inserted into many different organisms see Luciferase — Applications.

The genetics of firefly bioluminescence, focusing on luciferase , has been reviewed by John Day. All fireflies glow as larvae. In lampyrid larvae, bioluminescence serves a function that is different from that served in adults.

It appears to be a warning signal to predators , since many firefly larvae contain chemicals that are distasteful or toxic.

Photic emission in the adult beetle was originally thought to be used for similar warning purposes, but it is now understood that its primary purpose is in mate selection.

It has been shown that early larval bioluminescence was adopted in adult fireflies, and was repeatedly gained and lost before becoming fixed and retained as a mechanism of sexual communication in many species.

Flash signaling characteristics include differences in duration, timing, color, and repetition, and vary interspecifically and geographically.

Some species, especially lightning bugs of the genera Photinus , Photuris , and Pyractomena , are distinguished by the unique courtship flash patterns emitted by flying males in search of females.

In general, females of the genus Photinus do not fly, but do give a flash response to males of their own species. Synchronization of flashing is a phenomenon of several firefly species.

This phenomenon is explained as phase synchronization and spontaneous order. At night along river banks in the Malaysian jungles, fireflies synchronize their light emissions precisely.

Current hypotheses about the causes of this behavior involve diet, social interaction, and altitude. In the Philippines, thousands of fireflies can be seen all year-round in the town of Donsol called aninipot or totonbalagon in Bicol.

In the United States, one of the most famous sightings of fireflies blinking in unison occurs annually near Elkmont, Tennessee , in the Great Smoky Mountains during the first weeks of June.

Female Photuris fireflies are known for mimicking the photic signaling patterns of other fireflies for the sole purpose of predation ; they often prey upon smaller Photinus fireflies.

For this reason, Photuris species are sometimes referred to as " femme fatale fireflies". Many fireflies do not produce light. Usually these species are diurnal, or day-flying, such as those in the genus Ellychnia.

A few diurnal fireflies that inhabit primarily shadowy places, such as beneath tall plants or trees, are luminescent. One such genus is Lucidota.

Non-bioluminescent fireflies use pheromones to signal mates. A Font Size. Select Language English Malay.

At the time, Fox was and still is pushing almost costless, content-free exploitative "reality television" such as Joe Millionaire and formula-reuse "genre simulation" eye candy such as "John Doe".

In comparison, Firefly, with film quality special effects, a full cast, directors, writers, editors and so forth likely looked to be a much smaller payout.

After all, television in the USA is not about art or entertainment; it is about making as much money from sponsors as possible.

Fox didn't think that the Firefly pilot was "exciting" enough. Joss Whedon made some changes to address their concerns.

Then Fox didn't even bother to SHOW the pilot until the very last airdate of Firefly, prior to cancellation "tonight's special: two hour celebration of the cancellation of Firefly!

Promotion of Firefly was half-hearted at best. On a channel that tells its viewers "Hey, who needs drama? Fox is basically telling its own audience that it doesn't like its own programming, so why should people watch it??

As we face the homogenization of television content, Firefly was a brilliant spark of newness and excitement for those of us the few in the television audience that desire thought-provoking story-telling and entertainment that actually requires a viewer's mind to be active instead of blank.

To some of us, the outcome was never really in question; how could something this good survive on networks and with advertisers that believe the lowest-common-denominator is their ideal target?

Knowing the likely outcome, the failure of Firefly hurts all the more because of just how good it actually was in such a short amount of time.

It wasn't about the space ships; it was about the life lived in and around them. It wasn't about the aliens there weren't any ; it was about the people.

It wasn't about the struggle between the evil bad-guys and the super heros; it was about the daily struggle to BE a "good-guy" in a world filled with people who often didn't try very hard and the fact that sometimes the heros are just regular people afterall.

It wasn't about the sex; it was about the attitudes people have about sex. It wasn't about the profits; it was about selling a good product and deserving the profits.

It is quite telling to see what kind of programming thrives in this economy and what kind of programming gets a sharp stick in the eye. If we are to believe the executives of Fox and other networks, the viewers of television in the USA are unintelligent, selfish and naive automatons that are only capable of being entertained by programs that exploit the failures, ignorance and stupidity of others.

What if they're right? Luckily, we have the "hard-core" groups of fans to remind us that there are indeed a few active brains seeking stimulation out there.

Not to say that all science fiction fans are the best of humanity, it is easy to see that they spend a little more time considering narrative and consequences of actions.

The fans of Firefly funded, organized and accomplished an advertisement in Variety magazine to support Firefly.

Yes, that's right. The fans bought advertising for their favorite show. Though it warmed the hearts of the Firefly production team, Fox wasn't impressed.

Such groups of fandom are considered fringe and insignificant when compared to the mighty marketing numbers. Still, you have to admit, there must be something good about a show when the fans purchase advertising in major publications to support it.

The fans still hope that Joss Whedon gets another open-minded network to see that Firefly has great potential as a successful, revenue-generating series.

Whedon's previous exploits, the highly successful "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" series and its spin-offs, started with a similar "abysmal outlook" but another network had the foresight to give it a healthy chance when Fox was too eager to give up after not seeing instant success and profit after a handful of out-of-order showings.

They didn't even bother to show all 13 episodes completed. Maybe someone at Fox's accounting departments ought to make note that it's a waste of resources to pay for episodes and then do nothing with them.

The chance of recovery isn't good. People move on in search of more employment when the project they were on has been killed.

The landscape of television business today has a tendency to portray intelligent programming as "unsuccessful" and "profit-less. Networks say they are giving the audiences what they want.

It may be more accurate to suggest that networks are limiting the audience's ability to choose anything other than what they're given.

It's not likely that everyone will simply turn off the TV and go read a book in protest, is it? Back to Firefly: If you like smart science fiction or just smart fiction in general , well drawn characters and worlds, Firefly would have been a great show to escape into every Friday night as you relax from the daily rituals of work and responsibility.

Too bad it never got much of a chance to entertain us. With the failure of Firefly at the hands of businessmen and executives who do not even like to watch their own programming, it is clear that the "future Joss Whedons" of television will have a harder time selling their projects to the networks.

The result? There's plenty more where "Joe Millionaire" came from; there are countless other profit-seeking formulas that are taking the place of intelligent programming everywhere, calling themselves "Entertainment.

A ship would bring you work. A gun would help you keep it. Find a job. Keep flying. The film Serenity makes clear that the planets and moons are in a large system and production documents related to the film indicate that there is no faster-than-light travel in this universe.

The characters occasionally refer to "Earth-that-was" and the film establishes that long before the events in the series, a large population had emigrated from Earth to a new star system in generation ships : [10] "Earth-that-was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many".

The emigrants established themselves in this new star system, with "dozens of planets and hundreds of moons" and many of these were terraformed , a process that was only the first step in making a planet habitable.

The outlying settlements often did not receive any further support in the construction of their civilizations. This resulted in many of the border planets and moons having forbidding, dry environments, well-suited to the Western genre.

The show takes its name from the " Firefly -class" spaceship Serenity that the central characters call home. It resembles a firefly in general arrangement and the tail section, analogous to a bioluminescent insectoid abdomen , lights up during acceleration.

It is revealed in "Bushwhacked" that the Battle of Serenity Valley is widely considered to have sealed the fate of the Independents.

The Alliance is shown to govern the star system through an organization of "core" planets, following its success in forcibly unifying all the colonies under one government.

DVD commentary suggests that the Alliance is composed of two primary "core" systems, one predominantly Western , the other pan-Asian, justifying the mixed linguistic and visual themes of the series.

The central planets are firmly under Alliance control but the outlying planets and moons resemble the American Old West , under little governmental authority.

Settlers and refugees on the outlying worlds have relative freedom from the central government but lack the amenities of the high-tech civilization that exists on the inner worlds.

The outlying areas of space "the black" are inhabited by the Reavers , a cannibalistic group of nomadic humans. A later episode, " Out of Gas ", reveals that Mal bought the spaceship Serenity to live beyond Alliance control.

Much of the crew's work consists of cargo runs or smuggling. River is a child prodigy, whose brain was subjected to experiments by Alliance scientists at a secret government institution; she displays symptoms of schizophrenia and often hears voices.

It is later revealed that she is a "reader", one who possesses telepathic abilities. Simon gave up a career as an eminent trauma surgeon in an Alliance hospital to rescue her and they are fugitives.

In the original pilot, "Serenity", Simon joins the crew as a paying passenger with River smuggled on board as cargo.

As Whedon states in an episode DVD commentary, every show he does is about creating family. The show blends elements from the space opera and Western genres, depicting humanity's future in a manner different from most contemporary science fiction programs in that there are no large space battles.

Firefly takes place in a multi-social future, primarily a fusion of Western and East Asian societies , where there is gross class inequality.

As a result of the Sino-American Alliance , Mandarin Chinese is a common second language; it is used in advertisements and characters in the show frequently curse in Chinese.

According to the DVD commentary on the episode "Serenity", this was explained as the result of China and the United States being the two superpowers that expanded into space.

The show features slang not used in contemporary culture, such as adaptations of modern words, or new words. Written and spoken Chinese as well as Old West dialect are also employed.

Tim Minear and Joss Whedon pointed out two scenes that, they believed, articulated the mood of the show exceptionally clearly.

One of the struggles that Whedon had with Fox was the tone of the show, especially with the main character Malcolm Reynolds.

Fox pressured Whedon to make Mal more "jolly", as they feared he was too dark in the original pilot, epitomized by the moment he suggests he might "space" Simon and River, throwing them out of the airlock.

Fox was not happy that the show involved the "nobodies" who "get squished by policy" instead of the actual policy makers. Firefly maintained an ensemble cast that portrayed nine crew members and passengers of the ship, Serenity.

These characters fight criminals and schemers, Alliance security forces, the utterly psychotic and brutal Reavers, and the mysterious men with "hands of blue"—who are apparently operatives of a secret agency which is part of the megacorporation referred to in the DVD commentary only as The Blue Sun Corporation.

The crew is driven by the need to secure enough income to keep their ship operational, set against their need to keep a low profile to avoid their adversaries.

Their situation is greatly complicated by the divergent motivations of the individuals on board Serenity , but complex characterization was hampered by the show's brief run.

All nine of the main characters appeared in every episode, with the exception of " Ariel ", from which Book is absent.

Despite the series' short run, several recurring characters emerged from the inhabitants of the Firefly universe:. He wanted to follow people who had fought on the losing side of a war, their experiences afterwards as pioneers and immigrants on the outskirts of civilization, much like the post-American Civil War era of Reconstruction and the American Old West.

Television science fiction, he felt, had become too pristine and rarefied. This powerful word's relatively insignificant meaning, Whedon felt, added to its allure.

He eventually created a ship in the image of a firefly. During filming of the pilot episode, Whedon was still arguing with Fox that the show should be displayed in widescreen format.

Whedon filmed scenes with actors on the edge of both sides so that they could only be shown in widescreen. The pilot was rejected by the Fox executives, who felt that it lacked action and that the captain was too "dour".

For the new pilot, Fox made it clear that they would not air the episodes in widescreen. Whedon and company felt they had to "serve two masters" by filming widescreen for eventual DVD release but keeping objects in frame so it could still work when aired in pan and scan full frame.

Tracking and steady cameras were used to show the sterility of this aspect of the Firefly universe. This style was so desired that the director of photography, David Boyd , sent back the cutting-edge lenses which reduced lens flare in exchange for cheaper ones.

Production designer Carey Meyer built the ship Serenity in two parts one for each level as a complete set with ceilings and practical lighting installed as part of the set that the cameras could use along with moveable parts.

As Whedon recalled: " That meant the environment worked for us and there weren't a lot of adjustments that needed to be made". One was that it allowed the viewers to feel they were really in a ship.

Besides evoking a mood associated with the character who spends the most time in each area, the color scheme also alludes to the heat generated in the tail of the ship.

Whedon was also keen on using vertical space; having the crew quarters accessible by ladder was important.

The set had several influences, including the sliding doors and tiny cubicles reminiscent of Japanese hotels. Their small budget was another reason to use the ship for much of the storytelling.

When the characters did go off the ship, the worlds all had Earth atmosphere and coloring because they could not afford to design alien worlds.

Greg Edmonson composed the musical score for the series. He stated that he wrote for the emotion of the moment. A reviewer averred that he also wrote for the characters, stating: "Edmonson has developed a specialized collection of musical symbolism for the series".

The slide guitar and fiddle used in this piece are portable instruments which fit the lifestyle of the crew: "the music they make calls up tunes played out in the open, by people who were hundreds of miles away yesterday.

The most memorable use of "Sad Violin" is at the end of " The Message ", when the crew mourned the death of Tracey.

This was also the last scene of the last episode the actors shot and so this was seen by them and Edmonson, as Firefly 's farewell.

To denote danger, "Peril" was used, which is "a low pulse, like a heartbeat, with deep chimes and low strings". Simon and River's signature was a piano played sparsely with a violin in the background.

This is in contrast to the portable instruments of "Serenity": the piano is an instrument that cannot be easily moved and evokes the image of "the distant house and family they both long for".

The signatures were mostly established in the first pilot, "Serenity" and helped enhance the narrative. In every episode, the musical score intensified my experience of this intelligent, remarkable show.

Using and combining all these signatures, Greg Edmonson brought out aspects of Firefly 's story and characters that were never explicitly revealed in the other elements of the series.

Whedon's use of music in his television shows has been regarded as 'filmic', in that he has been argued to use it to remind viewers at 'pivotal moments' of earlier events, resulting in a tighter continuity throughout the season.

The musical score expressed the social fusion depicted in the show. Cowboy guitar blended with Asian influence produced the atmospheric background for the series.

As one reviewer stated:. Old music from the future—the music of roaring campfires and racous [ sic ] cowboys mixed with the warm, pensive sounds of Asian culture and, occasionally, a cold imperial trumpet, heralding the ominous structural presence of a domineering government.

Completely thrilling. Whedon wrote the song before the series was greenlit and a preliminary recording performed by Whedon can be found on the DVD release.

Behnken and the other crewmembers of STS on February 12, In casting his nine-member crew, Whedon looked first at the actors and considered their chemistry with others.

Cast member Sean Maher recalls, "So then he just sort of put us all together, and I think it was very quick, like right out of the gate, we all instantly bonded".

Whedon approached Nathan Fillion to play the lead role of Malcolm Reynolds ; after Whedon explained the premise and showed him the treatment for the pilot, Fillion was eager for the role.

He noted that "it was really thrilling. It was my first lead, and I was pretty nervous, but I really wanted that part, and I wanted to tell those stories.

Fillion has called his time on Firefly the best acting job he ever had, [51] and compares every job he has had to it. Alan Tudyk applied through a casting office and several months later was called in for an audition, where he met with Whedon.

He was called back to test with two candidates for the role of Zoe Wash's wife and was told that it was down to him and one other candidate.

The Zoes he tested with were not selected Gina Torres eventually received the role , and Tudyk was sent home but received a call informing him he had the part anyway.

And no aliens! For Adam Baldwin , who grew up watching westerns, the role of Jayne Cobb was particularly resonant. Canadian actress Jewel Staite videotaped her audition from Vancouver and was asked to come to Los Angeles to meet Whedon, at which point she was cast for the role of Kaylee Frye , the ship's engineer.

Sean Maher recalls reading for the part and liking the character of Simon Tam , but that it was Whedon's personality and vision that "sealed the deal" for him.

Glau had first worked for Whedon in the Angel episode " Waiting in the Wings ". Two weeks later, Whedon called her to tell her she had the part.

Veteran television actor Ron Glass has said that until Firefly , he had not experienced or sought a science-fiction or western role, but he fell in love with the pilot script and the character of Shepherd Book.

Tim Minear was selected by Whedon to be the show runner , who serves as the head writer and production leader. According to Whedon "[Minear] understood the show as well as any human being, and just brought so much to it that I think of it as though he were always a part of it".

The writers were selected after interviews and script samplings. Greenberg and Jane Espenson. Next, the writers except the one working on the previous week's episode meet in the anteroom to Whedon's office to begin 'breaking' the story into acts and scenes.
