The closest thing to an "official word' I heard was she wasn't kicked off, she had too full a dance-card and couldn't resolve the schedule differences. I think that was from one of the "Firefly" episode producer commentaries

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Okay, so, I've listened to the commentary to 'Serenity' a few times and read the reports and I *know* that Rebecca Gayheart was the original Inara.
In my head, I know it. But, you know, I've never really linked it before.
And now Anthony is watching Sliders and it's the episode with her in it and all I can do is shudder. I mean...
No way in hell could she have played Inara.
Thank you Morena, thank you very much.

I don't know of anyone that could have pulled off the grace and dignity of Inara the way Morena has done.

Joss is quoted as saying 'The most difficult part to cast was Inara. We [initially] cast someone and it didn't work out. Its nothing against the actor, but I felt the shift in the energy - 'this is not one of the crew'... 'When Morena came in, it was as though she had always been there.'
Morena had been offered an audition initially but turned it down because there was no script and she was in New York at the time... Its she who says that ' they had cast the part and then fired the person' and at that point she again tried for the part...
Morena's smile and facial expressions makes all the difference to the role...

That was a fairly bad ep. of sliders, I didn't remember her as so bad in it, but it's hard to tell. Morena has yet to wow me. Except from a schwing perspective. But I mean seriously, as an actor. Some people Joss likes and thinks are good I sometimes see as androids. There's all this emotional tension possible, but I don't get it. It's like buffy and angel. Sarah was being this emotional fountain next to this cardboard david. It was almost comic. Perhaps part of the reason that this relationship, mal+inara, is so tedious to me is that neither character is at all emotional in a convincing way. I know they're both sort of tough exterior kind of characters, but like willow and tara were emotional overkill. allyson and amber were terrific. Willow and Oz worked well, because allyson was fantastic, and seth was a stone wall, intentionally.
Mal and Inara is still the most boring cute people match up I've seen on a Joss show. It's like something out of baywatch, seriously.
I wouldn't mind it if this somehow got interesting. I would hate to think the relationship was attracting interest because the actors were cute, or even because people liked the characters and wanted them to be happy. Maybe I'm the only person who doesn't see it, but if anyone else is in doubt of this fascinating element, please post any ideas you have on how to make it interesting, on the hopes Joss might pick it up, because right now, I'm drawing a blank.
