    Serenity. It was my immediate choice but then I had to stop and think about it for a minute. Am I really picking the ship or am I just saying that because I really love Firefly? But yes, I really am picking Serenity strictly for the ship itself. It’s so homey and it has all those neat hiding places for smuggling.

    I have to admit, the lack of an FTL drive is a serious drawback so if I planned to go very far I guess I’d have to take the Millennium Falcon but for just joyriding it has to be Serenity.

    The Millennium Falcon. Sure it may not have the bells and whistles of the Serenity but it is The Millennium Falcon. But that’ just me, if I was a bomber pilot and had a choice of a Stealth Bomber and the B-17 Memphis Belle to fly around during peace time, I would go with the Belle.

    The Falcon, no question. I liked Firefly but always thought there was something just wrong about Serenity’s design. Never been able to put my finger on it… maybe it’s the anime-inspired organic-ness or something. I like my starships more industrial-looking perhaps.

    I’m with Jason – Serenity looks like a metalic female whose legs are in a sack and whose hands are heavily wrapped.

  5. Call me Paul says:

    Lynn’s right. It’s improtant to separate the ship from the show, and the crew. Doing that, I pick the Falcon, hands down.

    Hyperdrive is a big part of it, but so is the cool shape. “Looks fast just sitting there…”

  6. Call me Paul says:

    Yes, I said, “improtant.”

  7. Aaron says:

    I love Firefly, and love the Serenity, but c’mon, it’s the effin Falcon.

    Wait, does Kaylee come with Serenity?

  8. Lynn says:

    I agree that the Falcon has certain advantages. It looks cooler on the outside and it goes faster but the interior does nothing for me. If I’m going to take a ride in this thing I want a little comfort.

  9. jason says:

    I grant that Serenity’s nice wooden dining table and that groovy vintage lounge chair (an Eames?) look more inviting than the Army surplus ejection seat on the Falcon’s mid-deck. And Kaylee would be a big selling feature, assuming she’s included in the asking price. (Biiiiiiigggg selling feature; I like that li’l mechanic girl.)

    But… but… it’s the Falcon man!

    Serenity, hands down.

    I never noticed this detail before, but Serenity has port and starboard running lights (the red and green dots on the outboard nacelles) Nice touch.
