If you ever wondered what happened to the door between the dining area and the corridor to the bridge (BDS version) ... a recent interview with Loni Peristere of Zoic Studios reveals its current location. Plus, there's some tear-jerking nostalgia (have a box of tissues handy).

As a side note, down wishie.

Wonderful clip, and it still breaks my heart that I can't continually watch hundreds of episodes.

There was a thread here a few years ago that a guy found it in a junk yard and was going to restore it, but there has been no follow up story.

That is so shiny.
And that pic of Summer is just torrid. And sultry. I'll be in my bunk.

Which mule? Was it the 4-wheeler or the Serenity mule because the Serenity Mule is in the Universal Studio archives right now. It used to be on display on the tour and the tour would drop you off and let you look at all the famous movie cars and the mule was in there but after some "issues" with people not respecting the DO NOT TOUCH stuff they put it back into the archives. The 4-wheeler mule from Firefly I have no idea what happened to it. As for the Ariel Ambulance that was restored, a guy found it in an airplane graveyard in the Mojave desert (the irony about finding it in a junkyard still cracks me up) and he did restore it. There is actually a picture on the facebook page of him taking it to a convention.

Now you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell, but if your hand touches metal I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you.

I assume he is referring to the Firefly mule.
It is not in good shape. It blew up in War Stories, right?

Just Kidding.
He likely meant the hovering Serenity mule, thrown on the scrap heap. One of the 3 used in filming Serenity.
