working on a fic about Inara and been giving thought to the details of Sihnon.
Does anyone know a good info source??

Also - i always assumed that it was Sihnon in Serenity until Platonist disabused me of this notion.
It is possible that Inara was on some outback moon as a kind of punishment...
But - and here's the thing - what if this nameless world was Sihnon as well??
I mean what if Sihnon is a cluster of places, a conglomerate of worlds (they don't all have to be planets) whose exact heart is hidden from the curious. Does that sound feasible?
Sihnon could be a designation - Companion abodes could have secondary names, ((I dunno what but probably Budhist - or something else appropriate. Organon. Heh heh.)
At the very least i can see a sort of loose grouping like an extended campus... and this opens some doors for me - i'm little nervous that my fic may nudge on AU if I flesh out too much but what the frack, it's fun.

scattered thoughts.

Well, there's a wave card for Sihnon, and they wouldn't be encouraging tourism if they wished to remain hidden.

ah yes - and it's a beautiful wave card too! i'm gonna incorporate it in the fic...
BUT - the quickness of the hand defeats the eye etc. Tourism may be encouraged to a sort of Sihnon 'show world'... but is that the 'real' thing necessarily.

still playing with ideas... maybe i've watched Coma (or, uh, moonraker -!-) too much and read The Name of the Rose too many times. ha!

The unnamed planet is almost certainly out on the Rim, judging fromt he deleted scene in which Inara and Shaydra talk shop. Inara notes that the people here are rougher and not the sort of society that Companions developed in (don't remember the exact dialogue, but that's what I took away). If it's out on the Rim, couldn't be part of "greater Sihnon", which is the center of the Core. Also, Inara seems to be there by choice. I didn't get that it was a punishment, but a place to run to that wasn't near Mal.

The series, movie, and Serenity sourcebook have very little information on Sihnon. It was, along with Londinium, one of the first planets settled, most likely by the Chinese half of the Exodus. It has at least one really large urban area ("an ocean of light"). It's implied that Sihnon is the cultural capital of the Alliance, and I get the impression that Sihnon and Londinium are similar to New York and Washington D.C in that respect (one is the seat of government, the other is where the rest of the power congregates). The RPG may have more info, but it isn't canon.

It is possible that Sihnon has some private areas, the equivalent to China's Forbidden City. Of course, on a terraformed planet, that area could be the size of Australia. Or it could be a really small habitable moon. Nice thing about the 'verse is all that room. room enough for about anything.
