First air date
September 20, 2002
Five hundred years into the future, the crew on board a Firefly-class transport airship named "Serenity" attempts to endure while traveling the edges of space, accepting jobs both legal and questionable. Malcolm Reynolds captains the ship, assisted by his second in command Zoe, both veterans of a previous war. Able pilot Wash, rough around the edges Jayne, mechanic Kaylee, stunning courtesan Inara and mysterious preacher Shepherd Book form an assorted crew along with former medical officer Simon and his unpredictable sister River. This determined group tries to outrun criminals, a totalitarian government entity known as "The Alliance" and the cannibalistic Reavers, humans no longer human but now savage and merciless. Working together, this unusual crew seeks to carve a place for themselves within the galaxy.
