This has crashed past all filters of reason and reality to inspire in me an irrational and sure to be crushed hope.

Please get released. Please don't suck. I'd actually play this MMO.

Yep. That right there would be the thing that would drag me back to gaming. Big Damn Heroes!

Problems I can see already:

1. " it's struck a deal with Fox Licensing to turn the show into an MMORPG in the fashion of Star Wars Galaxies or Eve Online." -- Fox is evil, SWG sucked, and SWG and EVE aren't even remotely similar, except that they both use the internet, and are in space. I guess that's really 1. 2. and 3.

4. Joss Whedon isn't mentioned in that article, except to say that he created Firefly. Which means that likely, Fox owns the rights, he's getting screwed, and isn't involved in the game. Which, in turn, opens the door for all kinds of idiocy. Stand by for Serenity's version of Gungans.

We're starting out as Veterans, I'm either going to play an ex-reaver(Alliance brain surgery\secret experimentation of course, Leaky Brainpan major flaw of course) combat monkey, or a reader who has no useful skills whatsoever, and even his reading is crap because he's like 100 years old, crotchety and senile(Leaky Brainpan, Straight Shooter.....oh the fun). He'll basically never tell what he's really seeing because he's a curmudgeon, and young people nowadays wouldn't know the truth if it hit them in the ass with vibropaddle. I'm thinking the latter will be the one to play.

Yeah, but my copy of the Serenity RPG is signed by the cast.

Yes, but mine was free. And the cast wasn't exactly A list in terms of talent. I saw Nathan Fillion on an old episode of The Outer Limits and he played the exact same character. Not a lot of versatility there. No complaints though. Great movie, and a great Outer Limits episode(for once).

You don't go bad-mouthin' them Big Damn Heroes, y'hear?

Seriously, though, Firefly was really good because of the cast. And Adam Baldwin (despite being a Baldwin) is one of the coolest damn people you'll ever meet.

Also Morena Baccharin (sp? -Inara) and Jewel Staite are just as hot in person.

Yeah, DragonCon 2005. Not the whole cast, but those 3 and Ron Glass (Shepard Book) were there. We have pictures of Fyre and I being cliche obsessed fans.

They were very cool. They were charging for autographs, but all the money went to Katrina relief (It had just happened), which I thought was very cool.
