Re: Second time for "Serenity"... and ran right into the huge plot hol

The movie describes the hardscrabble planets as having been terraformed, yeah.

If one were desperate to achieve the kind of consistency that some Trek fans pursue with regard to explaining away the many small (and large) nonsensicalities of nomenclature and backstory in that franchise, I suppose one could rationalize the idea that "inner and outer planets" don't refer to their astronomical locations but have some social meaning along the lines of "upper and lower," "greater and lesser" etc.
