The Firefly and Serenity Database


Hi, welcome to The Firefly and Serenity Database! Thanks for your edit to the Template:Mainpage-quote page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Uberfuzzy (Talk) 05:15, 16 July 2009


Grunny, I redid some of the category structure, starting with Category:Firefly, and creating three distinct branches - Real world, to deal with real world articles; Firefly Wiki to deal with site maintenance such as templates, etc; and The Verse, which is the IU section. I reordered the Real world categories - take a look and see if anything needs changing. I think it works quite well. I plan on rejigging the Firefly Wiki branch next, followed by the IU branch. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 15:11, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

More category stuff[]

Okay, the Firefly wiki branch of the categories is done, and I have created categories for all the images. Thankfully there were not too many of them. Main in-universe category structure will be done next. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 14:28, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Canonicity of the Official Map of the 'Verse[]

Grunny; not sure if you've seen this: an official map of the 'Verse. It's endorsed by Margaret Weiss Publications, who make the RPG, so I'm inclined to put it in the same canon as the game. The picture isn't very clear - mainly 'cos you have to buy a copy of it - but another fan posted an interpretation of the map here. The creators also posted this document, which is an explanation of how they worked out positionings on the map and a short timeline. It has some very useful timeline info too. Just wondering what your thoughts on the canonicity of there are. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 18:02, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey Grunny I recently saw the edits of a new guy on the Samurai Jack wiki called Vampayru Spectrum and he recently created a few info boxes for some of the characters now I told him to put on hold while we along with Moe discuss it, things such as the order of how it goes, if we want them etc what do you think, I thought that since you're also an Sysop/Bureaucrat there you would also like to be part of the decision?--SalmanH 21:04, 30 August 2009 (UTC)


Hi, I saw this about a week ago. I didn't belive it until I saw it myself, I thought it would be neat to add to the behinds the scenes or trivia:

As an homage to the Alien movies, the Weyland-Yutani logo was used on some weapons in the TV series Firefly, and can be seen on a heads up display in that show's pilot episode. In Serenity, the motion picture continuation of Firefly, the Operative's claim that the Alliance was "building a better world" echoes the slogan of Weyland-Yutani, "Building Better Worlds." (The show's creator, Joss Whedon, wrote the fourth Alien film, Alien Resurrection.) Unsigned comment by Averclad (talk • contribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Individual ship infobox[]

Grunny, I created an individual ship infobox here: Template:Individual ship infobox. There is a slight problem with the coding which you should be able to see by the large grey area between the headings. However, the infobox is correct when applied to an article as seen here: User:Cavalier One/Dortmunder (yes, I am going to re-FA Dortmunder :P). I was wondering if you could see what the problem is? - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 20:32, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. It was a slight formatting difference that only affects it when no variables are put into it. :) Grunny 15px-FeaturedIcon.png (Talk) 20:46, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. I'll apply the template as necessary tomorrow and delete the original ship infobox. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 22:25, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Wren Image[]

Grunny, the image for the Wren-class came from and is covered under both Fair Use statues and Wiki's policies. I'm noting this on the image's file page too. WhiteCrowSeeker 18:10, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

I would like to point out that the Serenity MUSH is a fan-run RPG site. As such, images and text found on that site cannot be considered Canon unless verified by an official source. If those images are only found on that site, then chances are that they are fan-made creations (even if based on official images), and are therefore ineligible for inclusion on the wiki under our canon policy. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 18:35, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Okay then, I'll yank the image until I can find a more canon source. My original source for it went offline permanently last year.

Featured articles/ good articles[]

Hey Grunny; I was thinking about what you said on IRC before you left yesterday regarding good and featured articles. I think that creating both right now wouldn't be a good idea; instead, we should relax the word limit on FAs and just have one system. On a plus note, labelling us both as Operatives might be a good idea, too. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 19:41, October 17, 2009 (UTC)


Current page looks good to me. If I think of any humourous questions, I'll be sure to add them in. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 09:34, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

RE: Operatives[]

No worries. For the record, yes, I do plan on getting active here. As soon as I finish off Firefly - I'm still about six episodes off. :) --Thomas Rattim (talk)

  • The Monobook design's fine - it's basically Wookieepedia's. :P The only real issue is the logo going funny when viewing pages. --Thomas Rattim (talk)

The logo's fine, and it's good work with the skin, but I personally preferred the previous one - either make the pages in the same sort of colour, or the background and such the same as the pages, as they were before, in my opinion. --Thomas Rattim (talk)

I Would Like to Direct Your Attention ...[]


I was looking at the recent changes and almost all seem to be done by you so I just wanted to make sure that you saw my querrie posted at Talk:Fruity Oaty Bars.

An answer ASAP would be most appriciated.

Emiko Ctrl-A.jpg

I not sure if you were wondering about my response before but now I feel at liberty to discuss it.
You see this image at the side is of UW anime club's (Ctrl-A -- Club That Really Likes Anime) mascot, Emiko. The extreme similarities initiated a strong negative response from me & others. If you read the background of Emiko ([1]) you can see that ours was made in 1995 and thus felt as though she was stolen. However we have recived word from Geoffrey Mandel and it all seems to be a misunderstanding as he found it on a Japanese site and tried to find the owner and then Quantummechanix some how found it and asked him to make a Lithograph of it. *sigh* It was just such a big shock and now in hindsight it seems silly to have gotten so worked up about it ^u^. Again sorry about the "angry fist".

Episode infobox[]

Hey Grunny, I redesigned the episode infobox template since it was based on Wikipedia's by the look of it. I used the coding from the Wook's television episode infobox. Feel free to clean it up as needed :P - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 17:27, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hutmacher (talk) 15:17, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hi again, Hutmacher here. I think you may have noticed that my ability to formulate english sentences ain't up to the standarts of this wiki - SO I would need your help. If possible, I would like to get in touch with you via another medium like MSN or E-Mail from where we could discuss some files I would like to add to the database (Mostly scans of props used during the episodes and the movie).

Hutmacher (talk) 11:50, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

I saw it![]

Good news indeed! Maybe we could get a spotlight around the release date of Float-Out? That would help a lot, I'm sure. - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 22:30, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Indeed. Maybe try to FA Wash for the release date, and have a Wash related quote? Really go all out :P - Cavalier OneIndependents flag.JPG(From here to the eyes and the ears of the Verse) 22:45, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight Request[]

Hi Grunny. Firefly & Serenity Database is in good shape and I can add it to the spotlight list; however I cannot guarantee when the spotlight will go up (and it's likely to be before June at the moment). Do you still want the spotlight?

You have a lot of borderline stub pages; after browsing through I decided that you more or less meet the no more than 1/5th of the articles are stubs requirement, but even adding some pictures to the cast/crew pages (for example) would be a nice addition. You can see the pages in question at Special:ShortPages if you want to work on them. Also you have a lot of very non-stub articles in Category:Article stubs, and you have things with your "don't edit this because somebody else is" template which have been unedited for months :). So some general cleanup in those areas would be nice. However none of that is strictly spotlight criteria -- just me noting stuff :).

The edit I made to the monaco.css was so the number of articles will appear in the sidebar widget. It looks really strange to me to have that not visible so it just says "articles on this wiki"...

Past / present tense[]

Hi there! I saw that many celestial body articles use the past tense, while most other articles use the present. Why is that?... Klow (talk) 09:48, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

Episode scripts[]

The page you deleted was for the original script, which has some differences from the shooting script used to film the episode, such as the Battle of Serenity Valley at the beginning of the episode. Since the shooting scripts are available in those books, I agree, we shouldn't post them here.

What would be interesting, though, would be a comparison between the original script and the shooting script. List just the parts that were changed. That would be a much shorter page and would help preserve some of Firefly's history. Script comparisons could replace all the dead links to in the "Episode shooting script" sections for each episode.

It may be a while before I get back to this idea, but I'll put it up in a sandbox when I do. If the first one looks okay, then I can go on and do the rest. - RRabbit42 (leave a message) 14:09, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

Would it be okay for me to copy User:Grunny/bdel.js to Dev Wikia? Or could you do it (since you would be best at documenting it)?

i found this on the public domain in wikipedia:

it said it was in the public domain but i was wondering if you could look into it. im not entirely sure who to contact about it.

Beamonde (talk) 18:38, September 28, 2010 (UTC)


nevermind the merge.. sorry

Beamonde (talk) 17:55, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

The decision was made already (here) to leave them separate because not all Model B's are Malcolm's pistol. Some other wikis have a practice where "Mal's pistol" would redirect to a specific section of the Model B article, but here we just give these items their own separate article. Frankly I prefer the current method anyway. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 16:57, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Image move rights[]

There are quite a few file names on this wiki which are absolute nightmares, taking up more than a screen and a half, which are badly in need of moving and correction. If you are able and willing, can you grant me File Move rights? For some reason I don't have it here. I won't simply just redirect the files but will correct every instance of where they are linked. If you would like to check my credentials at another Wikia, there is the 24 Wiki (linked in my user page here) where I have demonstrated trustworthiness with admin/b'crat rights as well. I'm something of a workhorse and would be beneficial to the project with File Move. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 18:58, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, there are a lot of really bad file names, and I started cleaning up some of them a while ago. To give you just File Move rights, I'd have to request a new group be made and give a solid reason why we need it. It's easier if I just make you temporary admin while you do it, which will also allow you to suppress redirects when moving the images. So thanks for offering to do that :-). Grunny 15px-FeaturedIcon.png (Talk) 22:57, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
It will be my pleasure, and thanks for trusting me with the extra buttons. Leave the new rights as long as you feel is necessary. For what it's worth, if you see fit I would be happy to remain on board in this capacity for a longer term (I plan to contribute quite a bit either way). To head off bad filenames from appearing in the future, would you be comfortable with adding a policy about it? This is what we did over at Wiki 24 (here), the important section of the policy was: Use a clear, detailed title for the file. An obscure name like "qua_047.jpg" won't help anyone, and will be deleted by an administrator. Before that was added, we had no official statement to refer to when asking users to begin using better filenames. Just one idea. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 03:40, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I've been meaning to write up an image policy. I might combine parts of the one you guys have on 24 with our one over at Wookieepedia. I'll write it up a draft in the next few days, and see what you and anyone else interested thinks for wording changes or anything missing :).

Infobox categories.[]

When I add the planet info box to a page, shouldn't it add the planet category to the page. Why did u have to do it manually, i guess its not working.   Sith Jedi  Independents flag.svg  16:19, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

We don't have it set to add the category automatically. We don't mainly because at some point we might subcategorize the planets category into things like "Category:Planets of the White Sun system" and so forth, so it's better to add categories manually so that if we do change the category on some of the planets (and therefore remove the planets category from being added with the template), we don't have to add it to all the others that don't fit into a subcategory. Cheers, Grunny 15px-FeaturedIcon.png (Talk) 09:45, January 1, 2011 (UTC)


Heh, nice to see you here as well :) I just watched Firefly and was blown away by its sheer awesomeness, which led me to this place. QuiGonJinnTalk 20:20, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

Hello Grunny, if you get some free time, would you mind helping me a little. I was very interested in the setup you have on your userpage where it shows a recent change and also displays the name of the person viewing the page. I copied the code for both over to my page at w:c:lostroom but I ran into some errors. The recent change box is automatically showing the diff which causes my user page to be quite long at all times. With the username template, it simply adds <insert username here> instead of the actual username. I would be most thankful if you could help me with these as I really like them.

Admiral Sharpe article[]

Hello Grunny i was the guy that put the Admiral sharpe article. The article comes from one of the serenity role playing games books . The problem is that i cant remeber which one it is to me, i promise you the source is real and so to is the character. I have been trying looking for the book ,but i just can't remenber.I will keep looking of thr book is worse comes to worse i will go to the book store and find the name.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hi. I think the character may be genuine (or based off a real character), though I'll need to find the sourcebook. However, the site you linked to appears to be fan fiction and fan rpgs based off the series and real RPGs. So not all of the info may necessarily be true. This wiki has a strict(ish) sourcing policy, in that everything must be verifiable to a canon source. I'll try to find the actual source of this info and cut down the articles to only what is canon :). Cheers, Grunny FeaturedIcon.png (Talk) 08:10, March 16, 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Nav[]

Hi Grunny, Awesome Wiki. I made some small tweaks to the site nav - hope this is ok. If you like it i can do some more. One intersting thing i noticed is that on the Category:Serenity_crewmembers Malcome Reynlds photo is currently being shown as the featured articles badge. Do you think we could fix it? Either we could move the badges further down the page, or we can award the badge to more than 10 articles to prevent this happening. Cheers, Timz

Why were my edit's to "Francis Gaylord Proffington" reverted?[]

Even Featured Articles are subject to edits that improve them in terms of completeness or appearance. Nothing I did removed any factual information about the man, but simply cleaned up grammar, syntax, topic agreement, etc. The result was a MUCH cleaner article that read more like a professional encyclopedia entry (which is supposed to be the model for Wikki-ing).Alexander Donovan (talk) 04:37, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The main reason I reverted (apart from some issues with your changes) was that there were a lot of significant changes to the wording. Yes, FAs are subject to improvements, but it is generally considered good form to discuss major changes with the original writer, in this case QuiGonJinn, who can talk through why they chose to write it the way they did, and maybe consider which of your changes improve the article and which perhaps don't. The other reasons for the reversion include that a lot of the changes were mostly wording preference as opposed to improvements, and some parts detracted from the quality of the article such as this: "but his attitude eventually softened (something he tried not to show)." use of brackets in this case reads as less professional than the original version. Ultimately, I would suggest contacting QuiGonJinn on his talk page who is more familiar with the article. He is around, so should respond fairly quick.

Hi, it's Shen Lewis, I joined recently because I was sick of incorrect data regarding Alliance Navy vessels, and I wanted to thank you for your (probably automated :p) welcome. I really enjoy the RPG rules for ship creation and the hundreds of fan-created ships out there, and taking them and re-making them with the expanded rules provided in Six-Shooters & Spaceships which provide the much-needed official rules regarding space taken up by engines and other ship systems. I play a mechanic who rebuilds and upgrades ships as a sort of off-screen hobby (she's also the pilot, giving her plenty of on-screen action), and I have always enjoyed, in every game (even GURPS Vehicles, lol), the design process. As a result, when I saw "unknown Alliance Vessel" on a ship in the Universe Battle, and knew the name and exact specifications of the ship according to the co-author of Six-Shooters & Spaceships, I felt compelled to join this wonderful community as more than just a silent watcher. Thank you again for your welcome, and I hope to provide many more corrections in the future. ^_^ Shen lewis (talk) 03:23, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

2.7 Neutral Point of View (NPOV)[]

Very sorry for my confusion concerning this site. I think the way I found it is not it intended use. Would you please explain to me what the purpose of this site is; akk about?  Thank you,  Tom75.131.237.46 15:36, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

Hello Grunny,

I was wondering if this wiki had any partner wikis, and if it does, Firefly Online Game Wiki ( ) would like to become one.

Thanks for your time.

Wizard World Nashville[]

Hi, Grunny! It's ProfessorTofty, from over at the Harry Potter Wiki and Wookieepedia. I know I haven't edited here before, but I do like both Firefly and Serenity. I'm posting this message because I'm currently in Nashville, Tennessee through Wikia where I'm attending Wizard World Nashville. Today, as part of the festivities, I'm going to be attending a panel featuring Adam Baldwin and Jewel Staite from Firefly, with VIP access. Wikka wants a big social media push on these events, and so I was wondering how best to go about it here - be it blogs, video / photos, being in your Twitter feed, however we can get this out. Let me know what you think! My contacts through Wikia are Brandon Rhea and Annie Esposito if you have any questions about all this. ProfessorTofty (talk) 13:56, September 26, 2015 (UTC)

Hi, ProfessorTofty! :) Sounds awesome. Blogs and videos/photos would be great. We don't currently have a twitter feed though. Let me know if you need anything from me, and have a great time at the convention! Cheers, grunny@firefly:~$ 05:09, September 28, 2015 (UTC)
Well, actually, the convention happened this weekend, so it's already over. But I did have a nice time, thanks! And I did enjoy the panel with Adam Baldwin and Jewel Staite - got to sit in the front row thanks to the access granted to me by Wikia. I have some great anecdotes as well as some photos and such, so I'll post a blog soon about it and get that material up. I guess as far as needing anything from you, well, if there's any way you could feature this, that would be helpful. Wikia wants as much attention for this as possible. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:02, September 29, 2015 (UTC)
P.S.: About the photos I am posting - I'm not sure about the fitting license for them, if that matters on this wiki. When I chose the option "I took this photo myself," apparently that template isn't defined here. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:25, September 29, 2015 (UTC)
Just to let you know, the blog is now posted. You can find it here. ProfessorTofty (talk) 19:36, September 30, 2015 (UTC)

Firefly board game[]

I have just picked up the Gale Force Nine product and the Blue Sun expansion. Is this something that should get an entry/ies here, or is it too far from the show and canon? {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 23:13, March 22, 2016 (UTC)

This wikia is for everything Firefly and Serenity, so if it's officially licensed like Firefly: The Game is (i.e. not just fan made), then I think it deserves articles related to it. :) Cheers, grunny@firefly:~$ 07:40, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

It's this - {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 10:08, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

Yep, I think it deserves articles created for it and its content. :) grunny@firefly:~$ 10:15, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

For length, should it be "Firefly The Game" or "Joss Whedon's Firefly The Game" as a page title? A

Firefly The Game is probably the best option. grunny@firefly:~$ 10:44, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Are there more ship data like for example the military vessels of the Independents and the Purplebellies (Alliance)?

Would be great as I'm planning to write a Fanfiction story and would need something to go on.

Television footer[]

Heya, Grunny!

Would you mind if I added Firefly to the television footers program?

Best regards,

I'm not an expert on the subject, but would like to make sure there is not an error on one of your pages. Wiki article about Jubal Early. Behind the scenes section. When talking about the pistol that Jubal Early carried, it states that it fires bullets, but not on screen. Unless I am misunderstanding what is said there this is incorrect. I think he fires the pistol once into Simon's leg. 08:05, February 22, 2017 (UTC)Taylor

Adopting the wiki[]

Hello I have requested to adopt this wiki and the forum post I made about It was recommended that I ask you for the admin rights directly. Chalet (talk) 15:54, May 27, 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Chalet! :) Thanks for starting to contribute here! It looks like you've been making great contributions so far, but since you've only been editing here for two weeks, I'd suggest editing for a bit longer and focusing on improving the content, and then I'd be happy to give you admin rights. If you have suggestions for any updates to the look I'd be happy to make them in the meantime. :) Cheers, grunny@firefly:~$ 02:03, May 28, 2017 (UTC)

Shared images repository[]

Hello there,

I am an admin in the German Firefly and Serenity Wiki. As you can see, the German Wiki is very small at the moment, with just a few pages and images. Since the English Wiki has already so many pictures, I would like to ask you (since you are the most active admin here right now) if you would agree to share the images of the English Wiki with the German Wiki. A shared images repository would be really great for the German Wiki and I would appreciate your help.

Best regards, MasterTeska (talk) 23:00, April 3, 2018 (UTC)

Hi MasterTeska! Sure, that's perfectly fine with me. :) Cheers, grunny@firefly:~$ 05:00, April 4, 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. The feature has been enabled. MasterTeska (talk) 19:26, April 4, 2018 (UTC)

Hi grunny I was wondering if there is any infoboxes battles? As I like to use one on the universe battle. As I have the movie I plan on counting some of the ships that where there.

Ocula Class page issue[]

I wanted to bring this to your attention: Ocula-Class page is poorly written and in need of clarification. when i finished editing it User:Syalantillesfel edited back to its less usable form. I left him a message but i dont think he or she is going to fix it.
