    That story is so full of awesome, I can’t stand it. Somebody pinch me! I mean, don’t, but you know what I mean.

      That was interesting, but I couldn’t find out how to post to that forum.

        you need to get form #421722b from the brown drawer of the blue desk in the green room atop the Burj Dubai in 2430, anytime after labour day.

        Or anytime in 2234 – just don’t tip the bellhop. Or make eye contact…

    This Gives Me An Idea…
    …what if we could go back to September 2002 and save Firefly?

      …what if we could go back to September 2002 and save Firefly?

      How are you going to do that? Make another network pick it up before Fox does?

        …what if we could go back to September 2002 and save Firefly?

        Then we’d be on season 6, complaining about how the quality of the show has been lacking, how we still can’t get over the Kaylee musical number in season 4 (how terrible Nathan Fillion’s singing voice is), why they would have killed Jayne in season 3 and then gone on the quest to resurrect him, and how in season 6 we still think it would be better if Book had stayed a Shepherd and not gone back to his life as an Operative.

        Someone would be saying Inara is really a vampire — someone would reply that the whole affair with Spike was Joss on bad drugs. Our favorite cameo would have been Sarah Michelle Gellar as Badger’s sister. The worst cameo(s) would have been the twin blue-gloved William Shatners.

        The general consensus would be that the whole show has gone downhill, that it merits a mercy killing, and the characters we love today wouldn’t be nearly as precious as they are, because we’d have seen them used and abused from six seasons of occasional questionable writing decisions, network screw-ups, and poor direction.

        Feh.

        Give me three real seasons of BSG in the hand, and leave that elusive might-have-been Firefly bird over there in the bush. :) If you want to correct a timeline, have Rick Berman take a cruise in the Bermuda Triangle and the writers of ST: Nemesis fall into a crevasse. IMHO, THAT would be a correction worthy of unimpeded temporal adjustment. :)

          Well, if that Berman-directed ep with the sex scene between Inara and Badger’s sister hadn’t garnered such high ratings, maybe the show wouldn’t have spiraled so completely.

          I blame the fans.

            I knew it was heading south when Zoë started wearing a catsuit in season 4.

              Indeed, the all-nude season 3 was much better.

          Great post!! And I fear you’re exactly right. It better to have a little bit of awesome than to have to watch awesome turn to crap.

      No you need to go back much further and start spreading the word. Tell people that to keep an eye out for this show wich will start in a few years called Firefly ;)

      …what if we could go back to September 2002 and save Firefly?

      {SIGH} Sorry Ricky but ,as the regulars here all know, if Firefly went on to a second season than Ron Moore gets brought in as a Story Consultant and guess which series never comes to the big screen??

      Please PLEASE don’t try to act on this as I have a very busy weekend ahead and do not want to be bothered correcting some noobs mistake AGAIN!

      Besides I’ve sored some tickets to the 1938 Olympics sitting right above "You know who" and I have a .38 Special with that Bastards name written all over it.

        Or are you just heading back in time to open your #[email protected]%& coffee franchise a few decades earlier?

          Don’t curse at me ShredderBoy. You think that’s funny? Why don’t you ask your older brother how funny it is?

          What’s that ?
          You don’t have an older brother you say?

          Mu ha ha ha !

            Of all the arguments you could use to dissuade me, this one is a non-starter. Serenity killed the franchise deader than Fox ever did.

            No matter, I’ve run a fractal temporal chaos simulation on the quantum calculator I brought back from 2437 and now it’s back to 1969 to give Star Trek a fourth season! How the SF world would have changed for the better if only "Spock’s Brain" had been revisited in the mirror universe for all to see…

              Oh, and by the way, today’s my birthday. Anchorage, Alaska in 1956, 5005th USAF Hospital, to save you the trouble of looking up my Nobel Prize bio. Good luck overcoming my Norton reality lockdown defenses.

                Make that either of my Nobel bios.

        P.S. True story: this reminds me of a spam email I got one time from a fellow claiming to be a stranded time traveller. He was looking for a specific part, so he could fix his ship and return to his time.

        I answered him, chiding him for not packing a spare, and telling him that I would lend him mine except I had a pressing appointment yesterday.

        He *replied* that was too bad. If I ran into anyone else would I send them back for him? Needless to say, I never encountered anyone else from his "frame of reference."

        I later read that this fellow was a schizophrenic who had been using spamming software. Poor fellow. http://www.lindqvist.com/index.php?ID=1203
