Firefly – New Canaan Run: Atlas of the Verse, Vol 1

So, you got your ship, you got your papers, you got your crew (such as it is) . . . where do you go?

Well, you contact the Trader’s Guild Association, and get your yourself a copy of New Canaan Run: Atlas of the Verse, Vol. 1.

firefly stuff,

They are practically giving it away!

With 26 pages full of color and information, what you will learn will set you up nicely for making a go of your new career as smuggler of goods, harborer of criminals, adventurer of high space, and all around nice guy.

(From QMx) Here’s just some of the shiny info you get:
Introduction by Tim Minear, Executive Producer of Firefly.
Planetary maps, historical profiles, industries, satellites and exports for:
-Harvest (and Higgins’ Moon)
-New Canaan (and Lilac)
Currency and coinage used throughout The Verse.
Satellite maps of the Eavesdown Docks and Atoll City, Beaumonde.
Cutaway diagram of the FlashKill grenade favored by freelance security everywhere.
Higgins Industrial brochure on the best ceramics available in The Verse.
A copy of the Independents’ tactical map used in the Battle of Serenity Valley.
The complete history of the Firefly Ship Works and its development timeline.

They say there is more, and there is. But, meantime, here’s a few of the sheets they describe.

firefly stuff,

So, fine . . . you get to these worlds, but you are new, and don’t want to be a chun zhu, so you read . . . 

firefly stuff,

Wait! . . . there are gangs there? I’m gonna need a few things . . . 

firefly stuff,

That’s nice, but I need something more . . . practical.

firefly stuff,

Yeah! That’s more like it! 

. . . now, I need to figure out my way around . . . 

firefly stuff,

Can I download that to my Samsung? No? Da xiang bao zha shi de la du zi!

By the way, you’ll need some money, but luckily you can PRINT YOUR OWN. Of course, given that Browncoats lost, that script might not be worth much. Sentimental value, maybe.

I don’t remember the series specifically saying Firefly was built on Hera . . . 

firefly stuff,

. . . but since it never says, why not have the shipyard on Hera, site of the infamous Serenity Valley, and the battle that took place there.

Here’s a map to better visualize the action . . . don’t mind the blood.

firefly stuff,

Anyway, since the ship was built on Hera, it stands to reason that while we are there we check out the history of Firefly Class ships.

firefly stuff,

For them who don’t know, River tells you:
Midbook Transport. Standard radio and accelerator core. Class code 03-K64–Firefly.

Of course, she also says:
The human body can be drained of blood in 8.6 seconds given adequate vacuuming systems.

The girl is a fountain of information (you have no idea!), and so is this fine offering.

By the way, there are actual bands who do a fine job of writing music for the characters, the action, and the show in general. Check out the Bedlam Bards, either at their site (HERE) or on YouTube (HERE)

This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
