“At QMx, we know firsthand how great and powerful a franchise Firefly is and how mighty the Browncoats are,” said Andy Gore, CEO of QMXi and Quantum Mechani xInc. “It has always been our mission to bring the Verse to life for our customers in every way possible. The idea of creating an interactive experience where fans can have their own Firefly adventures — well, that’s just too shiny for words.”

For those unfamiliar with the TV series, it’s set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of a renegade crew aboard a Firefly-class spaceship. Although it was canceled shortly after its debut in 2002, it continues to thrive in digital downloads, DVD sales and syndication.
