I have recently watched the Firefly series and Serenity movie. And for me Firefly is the best TV show ever created.

I have now become a self-styled Browncoat but I want to know more about the 'verse.

I now proudly have:

  1. Firefly DVD set with commentaries, behind the scenes etc. and Serenity the move.
  2. Firefly/Serenity Panel videos for various comic-cons
  3. Serenity comics: Float Out, Shepherd's Tale, Better Days, Those Left Behind, Downtime and The Other Half (Is there any comic I missed????)
  4. 10th anniversary Browncoats Unite.
  5. Map of the verse
  6. Firefly World - The Verse in Mumbers.

I am currently trying to get my hands on:

  1. R.Tam Sessions
  2. Re-Lighting the Firefly

Are there any more media (print or electronic) related to Firefly?

  • There might be a new comic book in the making... – Wikis Sep 24 '13 at 9:12

    "Firefly is the best TV show ever created" Is there any way to fish for upvotes more obviously? +1 – bitmask Sep 24 '13 at 15:28
  • There is also a fluxx edition of firefly that recently released an expansion. The expansion also details cards that don't exist so at least one more expansion must be in the works... Inexpensive and a lot of fun – Odin1806 Oct 27 '18 at 19:06

According to Wikipedia, you're missing out on the following media:

  • A novelization of the film Serenity by Keith R. A. DeCandido
  • An original novel titled My Own Kind of Freedom by Steven Brust, released under a Creative Commons license. (Note: This one isn't approved by Joss Whedon.)
  • A comic: Serenity: Firefly Class 03-K64 - It's Never Easy
  • The Serenity role-playing game mentioned by Stefan.
  • If you're into it, there are soundtracks to Firefly and Serenity, respectively.

For more in-depth information you might also be interested into the following books:

  • Firefly: The Official Companion (Volume One and Volume Two) by Joss Whedon
  • Firefly: Still Flying by Joss Whedon
  • Investigating Firefly and Serenity edited by Rhonda V. Wilcox and Tanya R. Cochran, part of the Investigating Cult TV series.
  • If you still don't have enough material on your hands there's always Finding Serenity and Serenity Found by Jane Espenson, both part of the Smart Pop series.

    Along with the soundtracks, there are some fan made songs and sheet music. The group I was with used to perform some of them at our local renaissance faire. IIRC we did "Into the black", "Jayne's Song" and "River's Jig", the song played during the dance scene in "Our Mrs. Reynolds". – JohnP Sep 24 '13 at 17:20
  • @JohnP Yeah, I distinctly remember a rendition of Mal's Song by Vixy and Tony. For fan made content YouTube generally is a good place to start looking. – JC2k8 Sep 24 '13 at 18:11
  • You missed the Firefly-themed Monopoly game. – Omegacron Mar 13 '15 at 16:22
  • There is also Firefly:The Board game. boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/138161/firefly-game. Also there is another more recent Firefly RPG using a different rule set than the Serenity one. – Sarriesfan Oct 27 '18 at 17:25

There's a comic series of xkcd, a very popular webcomic, addressing Firefly (basically because Randall is maniac Firefly fan (in the best possible way)).

Have you had a look at the RPG rule book? It contains a lot of background information.

If you like playing RPGs it is not a bad system too imho.

  • Could the divebomber please leave a note to explain what is wrong with the answer? – Stefan Sep 24 '13 at 12:18

    Other than it's really a comment, not an answer? – JohnP Sep 24 '13 at 17:20
  • Op asks for any more print about the verse and the rpg is a print about the verse with background information. In what way is it not an answer? – Stefan Sep 24 '13 at 19:17
  • It doesn't explain anything. It just aks "have you seen the rule book?" with an opinion of "not too bad". I am not the downvoter, sorry you're all bunched up about it. – JohnP Sep 24 '13 at 21:08
  • I explained that it contains a lot of background info, which is logically related to firefly which is what the OP asked for. As for being 'bunched up' yep, it kept me awake for hours. – Stefan Sep 24 '13 at 22:40

I recently purchased the Firefly blueprints/ plans on eBay. This includes the introduction of the Firefly series (of ships) by the CEO of the Firefly Division of Blue Sun, layouts for the Firefly 03 series , using Serenity as the base. There are five crew bunks. Mal's cabin is smaller than Wash & Zoe's. There are at least two shower rooms. Kaylee's bunk is next to Mal's. There is one empty bunk. Simon and River have separate staterooms. There are several airlocks. In addition to the shuttles, there are at least two escape pods. There's also a whole bunch of mechanical stuff that would be useful to fanfic writers. And two short stories, one told as dialogue on a sort of Cortex "Shadetree Mechanic" program and one as a junkyard logbook. Both amusing. The book is 'canon' btw, being authorized by Universal Studios.

In episode 429 of the Grammar Girl podcast the following word from Serenity and Firefly is covered:

  • Reaver (14 mins 15 secs - 17 mins 32 secs)

Reaver is included in Beowulf (the poem).

There is soooo much Firefly-related goodness right now. In the last 13 years or so, there's never been a better time to be a Browncoat. So much sway, official merchandise and yes - canon friendly narrative. I mean, there's been 3 main comic series already, 4 one-shots tales and 'No Power In The Verse' coming in a month or two. Woop Woop!

Plus, if you have trouble finding Joss's script to read for the unaired 15th episode (Dead or Alive) or any of the behind the scenes stuff and gubbins from the Fox era in 2002/2003 - let me know and I can send them to ya.
