Biographical information






"You can't stop the signal."
―Mr. Universe[src]

Mr. Universe was a reclusive techno-geek. He lived (apparently) alone on a moon with his love-bot "wife", Lenore. He had a great affinity for data and was capable of intercepting nearly any transmission or recording in the system. He was seen stepping on a cloth-wrapped glass (as well as wearing a yarmulke) in a video clip of his wedding, indicating that he may be Jewish.

He was killed by the Operative as part of a trap the Operative set to capture the crew, but had set plans in motion for Malcolm Reynolds to broadcast a report from a Union of Allied Planets scientist that revealed the origins of the Reavers.


Memorable quotesEdit

Mr. U.: "There is no news. There's the truth of the signal. What l see. And, there's the puppet theater. . . the Parliament jesters foist on the somnambulant public."
Mal: "Well, what about this? Did this make the puppet theater?"
Mr. U.: "No, sir. And no lawforce flags, either. I had to go into the security feed direct."
Mal: "You can do that?"

"Zoe, you sultry minx. Stop falling in love with me."

Mr. U.: "Can't stop the signal, Mal. Everything goes somewhere, and I go everywhere."

Behind the scenesEdit

Mr. Universe appeared only in the movie Serenity. He was portrayed by David Krumholtz.

In the novelization for the movie Serenity, Mr. Universe is revealed to have been a student at the same flight school as Wash, achieving the highest possible grades by manipulating the school's software; Wash, knowing that he was a better pilot than Mr. Universe, was able to arrange for Mr. Universe to provide him with information in the future in return for keeping the truth secret.
