My question was more on why drop names like Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Lord of the Rings but not Firefly? Were the producers worried the audience wouldn't know what a Firefly is?

Dropping Firefly directly would've been way too obvious though.
Exactly. And also a bit too meta... it's a cute nod to Fillion's fans that Castle is fond of a long-ago cancelled cult sci-fi show starring a guy who looked suspiciously like him. To invoke the name would be pushing it, though.
