Firefly Fortunes
                	 Karen Pease - 2005-10-04

	This package contains fortunes from the TV series "Firefly", and
it's movie "Serenity", by Joss Whedon.  The series survived only one season
on Fox; the network scheduled a bad timeslot, played the episodes out of
order, and in general helped seal its fate.  Nonetheless, the series built
up a cult following; as DVD sales skyrocketted, Universal decided to sponsor
a movie based on the series.

	Firefly is often described as a "Space Western".  A mix of humor and
seriousness, it is sometimes described as "Star Wars" with the Rebellion
having been brutally crushed and Han Solo needing a new job.  Over 500 years
in the future, a band of humans terraformed a nearby planetary system with
dozens of habitable planets.  The most developed planets, toward the core,
live in "civilization", and formed the Alliance; the planets on the rim tend
to struggle to survive, and launched a failed rebellion against Alliance
rule.  Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a former "browncoat" (rebel) commander,
captains a Firefly-class starship named "Serenity", with a small, mostly loyal
crew, taking whatever jobs (legal or otherwise) that they can.  Their
lives become more complicated when, after taking on passengers for cover,
they inadvertently take in a mentally disturbed girl who the Alliance wants
more than anything else.
