SF author Timothy Zahn is a fan of Firefly. In a comment in "Star Wars: Heir to the Empire - 20th Anniversary Edition", page 266, he compares one of the book's scenes to Firefly's "Jaynestown".
In the scene, Han, Lando and other characters talk about one of Han's earlier adventures, when he was forced by the circumstances to give his loot to some slaves he rescued. The relevant part of the comment is as follows: "An odd echo (pre-echo?) of the Jaynestown episode of the TV series Firefly, where an action that was seen by some as heroic was really nothing more than pure pragmatism on the part of the person involved."
