'Mutant Enemy U' - an essay from 'Serenity Found'. It's written by Loni Peristere. He was the visual effects supervisor on Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Serenity. It's a great read and educational too.

Thanks for the link, Simon.
Great great great read. Loved it. There have been some wonderful Firefly links lately. The short stories, the Whedony love by that other writer dude and now this.

For the record, I still miss this show so much it can bring me to tears when others profess their love. Damn allergies!
Mr. Peristere writes really well.

I'm glad to learn more technical details about the ship's construction and propulsion systems. I always figured the Firefly engine for a fusion reactor. I see I was wrong about that, but it would have made more sense. Serenity never seems to make a fuel stop. However, Neal Stephenson's recent novel Anathem features an interstellar ship with a drive that sounds a lot like Serenity's.

So, NBC is suddenly looking for five scripted prime time series and hasn't bought enough pilots. Revive Firefly/Dollhouse/a spinoff! (I can dream, can't I?)

Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down.
That was lovely. And it prompted me to finally get around to buying the Firefly soundtrack, so I could listen to it while I read.
This is a great link.
What a great read. Must re-watch Firefly & Serenity to see all of that love in the details. What a burden... ;)
