Same here.

I only recently discovered Firefly but I have to say I am damn fond of it now. I'd love to see another movie.

ISS crapper with such a peaceful sounding name? Nice place to duck with a novel and take care o' bidness...

Sadly, Serenity is also the name of a brand of adult diapers, making it doubly - and ironically - appropriate.

Seems like the name should go to something better than node 3 of the ISS. It should go to a craft of some description for a start.

There are no greater group of whining babies than the Browncoats.

Yeah, I said it!

It'd have to bee separated into two rather spherical sections.

Ohh, right. One of the options is Serenity.

Not because of Firefly.

But if it wins the Browncoats will claim it as their personal victory.

At least naming the shuttle "Enterprise" had a legitimate Trek connection. This is reaching.
