Firefly

A Firefly-class transport seen on Coruscant.

The Firefly-class transport was a ship seen on the planet Coruscant's airways shortly after the declaration of the Galactic Empire.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Firefly-class transport is a reference to Joss Whedon's TV show Firefly. The stories revolve around the crew of a Firefly-class light freighter called Serenity, who act as independent traders, smugglers, outlaws, and adventurers much like Han Solo (to whom Whedon has compared Serenity's captain, Malcolm Reynolds). Whedon has also publicly stated that the idea of the show came to him while he was thinking about the Millennium Falcon, and that the character of Jubal Early was based on Boba Fett.[source?]

The ship can be seen in the sixth strip of Evasive Action: Prey.[1] Thomas Hodges, the illustrator, was responsible for its inclusion.[2]

Whedon included a Star Wars ship, the Mobquet Medium Transport, in the background of the Firefly episodes Shindig and War Stories, and an Imperial shuttle in the pilot episode Serenity, so the cameo can be viewed as returning the favor.[source?]
