Not really, no.

No stubby-wing rotary engine pods, no bird-neck cockpit, no firefly-butt engine, and just a general lack of the rounded shapes of a Firefly-class ship.


this.

Love the show though. LOVE IT!

Actually I can see this more than serenity, CCP should put a Firefly themed ship in (not saying right away) I think that would be cool

I actually do see the similarity, was chatting about it with a few folk in-game just the other day.
You do have to squint a bit, but I find as one passes by on undock or similar and you just get a quick glimpse, they do look a bit alike.

Gentlemen you can't fight in here, this is the War Room!

And really I think that was the point I was trying to convey, I didnt mean up close or docked up, but if you are undocking and see a noctis 20 km out it looks like Serenity :) also, Im glad so many firefly fans play EVE \o/

Don't think that show would ever make any money by major network standards, Space Westerns still a niche market.

Agents of Shield sucks ass tho.

Honestly I always thought the Harby looked like a Firefly.

And the Abaddon like a Halo 1 Assault Rifle.

And the Myrmidon bad-ass.

Yeah, Space Westerns like Star Wars. Smile

And Agents of Shield is doing pretty damn well for a show that "sucks ass". Big smile

First episode was kind of mediocre. Rest of the show is amazing and way better. Give it another shot.


Back to OP, I don't see the relation at all. If I had to think of a ship that resembled it, the closest thing is the Minmatar probe.

One my all time fav series, Point of no Return and Shattered Dreams being possibly the 2 best episodes of nerd porn ever made. Amazing stuff.
