The woman who made the recording arrived after the Pax was released on Miranda. She was most likely part of the research team itself that released the Pax. In this Youtube video of the monologue, the way she talks about it as well as her reference to "they have killed most of us" also indicate that the group she was with was something separate from the ...

From Wikipedia: His background is explored further in the comic book Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale. Book was born Henry Evans, a boy who was raised by an abusive father. He ran away from home and began life as a petty criminal before being recruited by the Independence movement and moving out to the Border Worlds. Long before the Alliance begins the ...

This is a great question. As far as I can make out, the video message was recorded by one of the original researchers who were studying the effects of Pax on the planet's populace. The woman certainly seems to have all the information to hand, statistically and scientifically, and this suggests that the researchers, like any 'Earthbound' equivalent, ...

The Serenity film was made to wrap up the story. They included the opening flashback scenes to explain what happened at the planet. They further wrap up the story with the crew from the last episode having worked together for some time (since the last episode). Apart from the flashbacks, the movie is set completely after the series. I'm not sure which ...

Personal theory- They are like a different species from humans. As other carnivorous animals, they don't eat each other. As some carnivores live in a pack they also live in a pack. They didn't even take interest in dead humans similar to some scavengers. They are anti-social and brutal but still they show some intelligence as driving ships,so they are not ...

Try this site. There should be a translation for all the phrases used in Firefly.

Heavy influences. If you can't see them you aren't paying attention to the details of the stories. The movie especially plays out like a Mass Effect movie, even ending like Mass Effect where the captain fights his way through a battle between the Alliance and Reever fleets to send a signal out. Only big difference is Malcom runs from the Alliance where ...

While Wheedon provides no real answers here, nature may bring some insight into view. I would suggest the Reavers were not "insane" so much as hyper-sensitive and overly agressive. They would probably still have a hierarchy and order to their way of life. There would still be some type of "chain-of-command" where as to keep them in order. In the movie ...

It's almost like pheromones. If you don't exude a certain secretion or smell you are perceived as in this case a target. That's why they don't (assumption) attack each other. The opposite effect for zombies. The living put out a certain something that attracts the walking dead or undead as the case maybe.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Whedon wasn't able to fully explain the back story to the Reavers. Whedon originally planed on stretching the universe of Firefly over years, including a video game. If you watch Done the Impossible (a fan documentary), Whedon says the plot of the film was intended to continue from where the show left off but also ...
