Re: Firefly's Sheperd Book

I like that we don't know. I guess too he was a Operative. But I think it's good that they didn't explain it and just left him as a man with the past. The way Serenity ended with him was good.

No, it's never been actually addressed. However, as Tharpdevenport stated, there is supposed to be a comic coming out that tells some of his backstory, although it should have already been released by this point. Also, apparently there was a browncoat cruise in 2007 where Ron Glass states Derrial was not the shepherd's real name, but the name of a man he had killed. As far as I know that's all the backstory there is so far.
Wouldn't be surprised if The Shepard's Tale never comes to be.

Re: Firefly's Sheperd Book

I always thought the story of the Operative in Serenity mirrored that of Books past. Oops I guess someone else had the same idea. I guess I should read the whole thread before answering. But yes I agree that The Operatives story is Books Story, and maybe the Operative becomes a Shepard.
