Re: Firefly/Serenity question...

Yeah, I'd go with just an attempt at making things more accessible for an audience that hadn't seen Firefly. There's actually a lot of this with Serenity, for example, the opening scene with Simon breaking River out of the Alliance facilty features two guys chasing after them wearing suits like the Blue Hands, except they aren't wearing blue gloves. Or that Mal seems to have greater reverance and respect for Shepherd Book than he did in the series. Or the rather cool and unique office-building style Alliance starships are no where to be seen and all Alliance military ships are rather boring and generic looking.
