Massive Model Of Starship Serenity Discovered In Warehouse



This amazingly large, and incredibly detailed, production model of the starship Serenity from the scifi tv show Firefly was recently unearthed in a Universal Archives warehouse.

Like many models used in production, it was resigned to a shadowy fate once the show wrapped up production, and many thought it ended up in a trash bin somewhere.

Here's more info on why this was such a significant find:
About three months ago, while getting a very rare tour of the Universal archives, we came across something tucked into a corner and covered in plastic that made our hearts skip a beat: a highly-detailed 12-foot-long filming model of the Reaverized Serenity. We could hardly believe what we were seeing!

As many Browncoats know, there has been a rumor around for years that a filming miniature used for the crash scene on Mr. Universe's planet. But that rumor was either denied as either being totally false, or that the miniature used was a simple styrofoam model. As you can see from the picture below, it does exist and is about as far from a "simple" model as you could imagine.

With such high production quality standards, it's no wonder Firefly still looks fresh to this day. If only the fan appreciation factor was enough to put Firefly back on the air.... *sigh*

I watched all the Firefly episodes for the first time recently and it amazes me how stupid someone could have been to cancel this brilliantly scripted show. Such chemistry amongst cast members is something you very rarely see. Total and utter shame.

Sorry but Firefly was a terrible show. Cowboys in space using old fashioned pistols? What kind of drugs were the writers on?

I'm probably one of the very few sci-fi nerds who thinks Firefly is ridiculously overrated. There were some great moments, but most of it (to me) was freak'n boring. And Whedon's obsession with teenage girls is annoying.

"As many Browncoats know, there has been a rumor around for years that a filming miniature used for the crash scene on Mr. Universe’s planet."

I'm I the only one to notice this sentence is missing any kind of conclusion?
