My friends have taken issue with me when I've said that Serenity is a damned ugly ship. I'm sticking to my guns--from its horsefaced cockpit to its ungaily engines to its bulging bubble-butt, it's the homeliest ship I ever did see. That said, I think it's a great design--but it is certainly a triumph of substance over style. Serenity's a workhorse, a tramp freighter. She's not supposed to be elegant, she's supposed to be reliable and functional.
I'd like to bring up another godawful ugly piece of junk, with its leprous, cobbled-together hull, lopsided layout, scabby solar collectors and constantly malfunctioning systems--ladies and gentlemen, the Millenium Falcon. Ugly is not an insult--they may not look like much, but they got it where it counts.
Don't forget the Firefly Mini Marathon is 7pm on Saturday, September 17th, at the Kirkland Performance Center! If you haven't gotten your tickets yet, you might want to hurry up and do so. I don't know if it's close to selling out or not, but why risk it?
Here is a handy convenient link for you to use for more information and to purchase tickets! :)
