Is Firefly Steampunk?

A friend brought this up after I showed her this article on the growing popularity of steampunk.

It does have elements of the (mostly Western) Victorian era mixed within a future setting. And there is a noticeable patina on Serenity. There are even goggles, corsets, and boots.

There are many elements, but I'm thinking the dealbreaker might be the fact that it's set in the future with Western-Victorian elements instead of some alternate reality futurist Victorian setting.

So, what say you?

...Is it?
