NEW STORIES. UNSEEN PHOTOS. SHINY. “We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty.” Since its short-lived appearance on TV in 2002, Joss Whedon’s Firefly has indeed done the impossible. It’s sold over a half a million copies on DVD, spawned the hit movie Serenity, and most remarkably, inspired a loyal fan following — the Browncoats — whose numbers are still growing to this day.
