NASA to build Serenity? 1st Grader offers NASA a new spaceship design.

Suddenly I'm a big supporter of the public school system. That's so cute.
I want to know why Joss is getting his kids to do his movies graphic design now.

Either that or Cassady was having a bad day.
Well, we always figured there'd be a lower budget if Universal goes ahead with Serenity II. Meet the new concept designer.
The main thing I wanna know is: Where's my gorram bunk?
Something bothers me about the rating thing. I don't really know what. It just does.
It looks like Kaylee painted the exterior.
Or the art department.

(I totally stole Mine-ear's joke!)
daylight: "It looks like Kaylee painted the exterior."

It really does. The cuteness of this is excruciating. If we had avatars on here, this would so be mine right now.
Out of the mouths of babes.
No telling what impact this little show will have on the next generation. If we can't recruit new Browncoats, I guess we have to make 'em ourselves!
This post just made my week. If only you could see the smile on my face....
I hope that it's really a first grader who sent it in. The fact Serenity is spelled correctly fills me with both wild hope for the future and a sinking feeling that something may have been forged.

Great, you guys got me all excited with your talk of Kaylee-esque exteriors, and I can't see it.
Meltha, I'm going with the wild hope for the future concept because I'm a half-full glass kind of person.

If they can be an Enterprise, there can be a Serenity.
Is it just me, or does Serenity still look like a penis?

Didn't we have this conversation about a year ago?

It looks like a penis with flowers on it.

Nebula1400, that is the single weirdest thing I've ever heard. A penis with flowers? Thanks for those nightmares.

Anyway...very cute drawing. That kid rocks.

And it's red to boot.

I wonder if the kid is named Giles. :D
I agree with daylight. Kaylee painted the exterior. I wonder if the inside has shag carpeting and a disco ball. Or a black light.

The flowers must be cockscombs.
This has suddenly gone to a very disturbing place.
Goodness people... there's a child's drawing present!
This is just amazingly adorable. It's even got that bright fiery stuff that comes out the engine things. Don't you just love my technological lingo?

No offense meant to anyone on this board, but if I had a choice, I think I'd take the Enterprise. After all, at least the United Federation of Planets makes noises about pluralism of customs, beliefs, and ways of life. I doubt the Alliance is as tolerant.
Everybody vote it a 5, then we can get it onto the NASA gallery front page.

Since when is Serenity a representative of the Alliance?
I see a lot of kids' drawings and while I think the stars were done by an adult, the rest is typical of a talented 6 year old.
Although I do suspect a slightly older sister did the printing and the hearts. But of course the Old World masters didn't do all of their paintings either!
A penis with flowers? Thanks for those nightmares.

That was actually going to be what episode 20 of Firefly was about. (lie).
Can I just add an emphatic, "Awwwwww"?
Firefly Episode 20: 'Jayne and the Beanstalk' - Jayne stumbles onto a shipment of seeds for a medicinal plant difficult to grow in the core worlds which has natural effects on 'blood pressure' making them particularly saleable to older gentlemen. The rest of the crew, trying not to faint, realise the plan actually has some merit. Will things finally go smooth for Mal and his motley but lovable n'er do wells ?

Very cute picture. I like the colour.
Maybe it was just me, but the Enterprise-Serenity comment is related to the naming of the test shuttle to Enterprise, and it would be neat if there was something similar for Serenity. At least that is how I interpretted that comment.

And that drawing is neat, I wonder if NASA would ever consider decorating the next crew exploration vehicle like that. Any aliens passing by may be amused.
To be honest, it looks like the second 'e' was added by a different handwriting... so it maybe was a kid who was inspired by their parents or parents' friends explanation of a cunnin' fuzzy hat... =)
Well, we should at least name one of the freight haulers up to the ISS "Serenity"! That way, they could use it for smuggling on the way home. ;-)

Maybe this young person is Kaylee's ancestor, and the "eye" for design is hereditary? ;-)
