All to a 80s synth soundtrack

Assuming you're still casting Nathan Fillion, I suppose there's plenty to explore in a post-Serenity world. I've often seen people clamouring for a prequel though, set in the war that they constantly reference in Firefly.

Most of my TV show dreams are televised book series - the First Law series by Joe Abercrombie or the Malazan Books of the Fallen by Stephen Erikson for example.

There was one that made me laugh on a podcast I listen to which I think would 100% work though - get F1 drivers disguised, have them rock up at an open track day in a car that is a bit of a shed (with new tyres and brakes) and then film the responses of the people who have rocked up in their track specials as they get owned by some seeming random driving an old shed.

Naturally! I have no real interest in that universe if it’s not the old guard (or most of). Never been that big on the world building. I actually have this weird notion that it’s the same universe as Space Above and Beyond but don’t ask me to explain that one :lol:
