Let me tell you a story about a man named Loren. Way back in 2005, when Felicity and I got tickets to the Portland preview screening of Serenity and Loren didn’t, Loren was very unhappy. He was even more unhappy when he couldn’t get tickets to the next screening. He made a valiant attempt to buy tickets on eBay but, sadly, Loren is not made of money and when the auction went north of $50, he threw in the towel.
As a last resort, he decided to go sit in front of the theatre and beg for tickets. He figured there was a chance he’d get in, and in any case it’d be fun. Andy, who was also dying to see Serenity, joined him, and I went along to document the event.
None of us were prepared for what happened. This is the story of how three humble dorks and a mysterious stranger became Big Damn Heroes.
Four years ago (September of 2004) I got a real bad homesickness for Firefly. Ok, it'd been there since the last aired show, but still. That was when I decided to do something about it. Abandoning my attempts at Fan Fiction (hate the stuff, really), I opened up a collaborative writing group, and was lucky enough to find a whole group of amazing writers and fans. We started writing the Firefly Spin-off, The Oberon. Every show needs an opening credits and theme song, right? Here's ours!
This is the Opening Credits Reel for the Oberon Firefly Writing Collaborative. Includes all new remixed version of theme song, and complete cast is included.
