(SPOILER) Slate podcast "Star Trek Spoiler Special" compares the film to Serenity. The podcast spends about 6 minutes going on about how much the new Star Trek movie owes to Firefly.
They contend the way the fights are shot in space and on the ground are reminiscent of Whedon, and, to quote:
“The reason I liked Chris Pine so much, I think, is he felt like a version of Nathan Fillion from “Serenity,” a daring, ne’er do well, bad-ass, bad attitude space cowboy who doesn’t take a lot of s*** but who is really lovable all the way through. The characters could have been brothers and it’s nice to see the DNA of Serenity has come into the science fiction world and is now an acceptable way to tell a story in that genre.”
“As good as the Star Trek movie was, Serenity was twice as good.”
The audio is spoilery for Star Trek, but if you skip to the 12 or 13 minute mark it should be clear.
