Watch This Surprisingly Great Firefly Fan Film

I’m usually already starting to cringe by the time I hit play on most fan films, and given how rabidly devoted Firefly’s fanbase is, I have to say I was a bit worried about this one. But instead, “The Verse,” is a surprisingly good fan re-entry into the Firefly universe with a team of actual actors in an actual set with an actual script that feels in keeping with the tone of the original show. I even recognize a few of them from other places.

Weirdly, the film was actually commissioned by Loot Crate, the geek subscription service which sends you a box of nerdy goodies for specific franchises every month. It’s tied into a new Firefly package they have, and to celebrate, well, they went ahead and made this 15 minute fan film.

The captain may be a little¬†too¬†Mal, and the crew falls into the same various roles of the show even if their genders and races change, but it’s pretty fun all the same, and definitely worth a watch.
