YES! But only if it had Bruce's "Elvis." I'd say JFK too, but, you know. R.I.P. Ossie Davis. Another character to cross over needs to be Evil Dead's Ash. Or George Romero's zombies.

Personally, I'd want to see Stargate Sg-1 crossovered. Then we'd get to see Mal kick SG-1's collective ass.

Opposites attract. And then they explode.

Well, for one of my choices I'd have to jump on the Doctor Who bandwagon. We'd just have to hope the TARDIS didn't materialize in Jayne's room or it'd be an awfully short episode.

The other choice is going back aways (yeah, I know, like Doctor Who wasn't)to the seventies, and going for the extreme silly factor...Quark. Just what they'd need: space garbagemen(dustmen) to go with a botched job. Maybe someone accidentally tossing the haul into a planetary garbage center and out intrepid anti-heroes chasing the Quark crew to get it back. Or not. Dumb, huh?

The crossover I'd most hate to see: Seinfeld. it's the only thing I can think of that would make an ep of Firefly completely unwatchable for me.

i reckon Stargate would be good. SG-1 or Atlantis. One thing that bugs me about those shows is that whenever they go to another world, the people there always speak all stately and proper. Haven't they ever heard of slang?? I could just see the SG-1 team arrive through a Stargate at the Blue Sun headquarters, then be rescued by River, then she could help them get back to Earth using... something or other, and all the while their thinking 'Where the f*** have we ended up!!!!' That would be awesome.

I reckon any crossover with a show that involves magic (eg, buffy, charmed etc.) would just totally mess with the mythology of firelfy.

BSG would be cool. i would love to see Starbuck (from the new one, not the old one) and Zoe get into it though. I could see them hating each other!!!! And Callie (i dunno if thats how you spell it) and Kaylee would spend hours in the engine room, arguing over how to fix the compression coil.

Oh, and Doctor Who would be cool too.

SOmeone would come on the ship and go *puts on big funny voice* "I am a jedi Knight you must obey me" and then Mal would just shoot him in the face coz he is being a pompous ass.

While not a movie or series, I think that Joss could easily bring in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" characters, like Lazarus Long.

The world that Joss came up with for Firefly (frontier planets, like a western) is quite similar to that of RAH's "Future History."

I think the immortals from Highlander could fit into the Firefly universe pretty well.

Aside from the conceit of immortals existing, and the occasional psychic, there really are no other magic/supernatural elements. It would be cool if there were a few people floating around the verse who remembered Earth that was.

The following will only make sence to those fammiliar with Highlander:

I think the rules of the immortal game would have to be changed to suit interplanetary-travel. Spaceships would have to be akin to holy ground, ie. no fighting. Imagine what the effects of a quickening would have upon a space craft. And imagine the horor at the idea of an immortal getting spaced - ala Jubal Early?

I'd like to see the crew of Serenity and the crew of The Betty throwing back a few.

And then maybe they pick up a bounty hunter named Toombs who needs to deliver his bounty, Riddick, to Butcher Bay.

Meanwhile, back on Earth that was, a new Slayer named Fray has appeared...

I am actually reading two fanfics with crossovers from the Buffy-verse on fanfiction.net. Neither one is complete yet, but they are both pretty good.

id love to see a Stargate Atlantis crossover simply to see a rading party of reavers take on a bunch of wraiths and see who would win (lets see how the wraith like geting fed on!), id also love to see a bunch or reavers try going thru the stargate to atlantis and splatter against their big see thru energy shield. Also love to see Kaylee put Mckay in his place about some kind of mechanical fault and Mal and Shepard duke it out.

Staying on a military theme, how about After M*A*S*H in the Black? For Alliance Colonel Sherman Potter, Serenity Valley was the last straw. Forced by orders to wait helplessly in orbit while the two sides hammered out the terms of surrender, he and his M*A*S*H unit had to listen to the Browncoat's desperate pleas for aid as the survivors of the battle slowly died. When his medship was finally allowed to set down, there was hardly anyone left to save. Unable in good conscience to continue to serve a government he no longer believed in, he turned down the offer of a prestigious post as director of a major Alliance veteran's hospital, and with several of the former officers under his command signed up with the Hippocrates Foundation to crew one of their Firefly class "Mercy ships" bringing medical care to the Rim. (See my post TRAIT (minor Asset) "Sponsor" on the "Waves In The Black" forum at http://www.aimoo.com/forum/postview.cfm?id=671180&CategoryID=455831&st
artcat=21&ThreadID=2265662
for details on the Foundation.) These included
- Pilot Walter "Radar" O'Reilly*
- Mechanic Maxwell Q. Klinger*
- Dr. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce
- Dr. B.J. Hunnicut
- Dr. Charles Emerson Winchester III
- Nurse Margaret Hoolihan
- Shepherd Francis Mulcahy

(*Note: both pilot and mechanic alternately doubled as orderlys and company clerks on Potter's M*A*S*H medship, while the Shepherd was the unit chaplain.)

I love this idea. Seriously. It's just...awesome. I love MASH, MASH in the black is like...awesome. wow.

Oh yeah...and I also like the Highlander idea somebody mentioned. Jubal Early as an imortal? wow...like that idea. Except...(recalls his outfit) were would he have kept his sword?

I would like to see a Pirates of the Carribean crossover. Put Captain Jack Sparrow and crew on another firefly and call it Pearl of the Black. Heck, the actress that plays Captain Sparrow's first mate is named Zoe in real life. Add Grace Jones as Zula from Conan the Destroyer to play a Jayne role. Throw in Sean Connery to play an old and wise shepherd. Have them meet Serenity at Capitol City and steal a lot of gold together and then throw a big party in space. Shepherd Sean could stop them from making a golden calf.

So many worlds. So little time.

How's this for a slice of fried gold...
Serenity touches down on a moon and in a bar, Mal is approached by Yul Brenner and Steve McQueen, and they ask him and Zoe to help protect a village from bandits. The name of this episode? "The Magnificent Nine." To bad both actors are no longer with us.

Or what if there is a fortune in gold buried in a graveyard, and Eli Wallach knows the location, Clint Eastwood knows the name on the tombstone, and Mal has to win a three way shootout to get paid.

Ok, last one. It deals with Wash's backstory, how he joined flight school to see the stars, went off to war, and lost the edge when his copilot was killed due to jet wash. Ironically enough, that's how he got the nickname "Wash." Finally he overcomes his fears and sense of loss to beat Val Kilmer and win Top Gun. Iceman loses and his name goes on the alternate's plaque in the women's restroom.

Not strictly speaking a cross-over but I think it would be a hoot to see the crew from TNG on an alliance cruiser. By the time they figure out how to reverse the polarity on the sensor net and chanel the output through the secondary cortex link the BDHs would be two sectors over planning their next heist.

I wrote a Firefly/Buffy/Angel crossover which is really based slightly tongue-in-cheek on Joss Whedons actor recycling program.

I think the best crossover would be Firefly and Cowboy Bebop (an anime about bounty hunters). They both center on ship crews who are just scraping by and a corrupt government. Also they both have a blend of western and sci-fi with Asian (Chinese FF/Japanese CB).

*ahem* I signed up just to make this post, I just hope that we are allowed to reply to archived posts (am such a newbie, please don't kill me )

I'm surprised no one has suggested a Red Dwarf/Firefly crossover yet. They seem to have quite a lot in common: an emphasis on the dirty, gritty realities of space travel as opposed to the sterile perfection of Star Wars/Trek, and a totally irreverant humor.

I would love to see these two crews interact and see who buddied up with who. What would our BDH make of the smegheads? Would Simon see more of himself in Kryten or Rimmer? Would the Cat be able to outshine Inara in outfit selection? The world may never know.

However...

I've joked with friends that a Firefly/Cowboy Bebop crossover would be fun. I'd like to see the Mal Reynolds vs. Spike Spiegel fight, as well as Jayne Cobb vs. Jet Black. I think the crew of Serenity would be very, very badly beaten by the slick, professional bounty hunters... For the first three acts before figuring out a way to turn the tables and get away with their skins intact... If just barely.

Two words, you rule.

Seriously, though. Firefly and Cowboy Bebop have so many similarities, it isn't funny. Especially the constant theme of "broke-itis" that both ships seem to share. Another good crossover would be Firefly and Outlaw Star (but then some people call that a rip-off of Cowboy Bebop anyway).

At last.

But why has no-one mentioned Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the BBC series, not the movie)?

I've got a fanfic that's a FireFly/Highlander crossover with a difference -- the quickening isn't witnessed, and the crew doesn't ever realize that immortal is immortal. I'm finishing its 4th rewrite now, and looking for a good place to publish it (it's my first fanfic).

It just came to me how the immortal Amanda "I was never a cheap whore" Montrose might react after meeting Mal "I'm not a petty thief" Reynolds, not to mention Inara.

Heres my idea for a crossover: Firefly and Animorphs.

The crew of Serenity are transported to a strange planet that is like northern canada except warmer and woth some deasert and some jungle. Somehow, Jake, Marco, Rachel, Cassie, Tobias and Ax end up near by and the two groups have to held each other in order to survive. They decide to trust each other and just when everything is going smoothly, Visser Three shows up! He wants to make River a controler so that the Yeerks will be able to find the "Andalite Bandits" (who, as anyone who's read the serries knows, are really Jake, Marco Cassie Rachiel Tobias and Ax). The Animorphs fill the crew in on the Yeerks and when Visser Three come by the ship to "collect" River, Simon takes a .357 Magnum and puts a bullet through the abominations head, hitting the Yeerk slug with a lead slug (sorry, bad punn).

You can fix anything if you have a big hammer and enough duct tape.

I agree with the idea that they should run into aliens from the classic Alien quadrilogy (if thats even a word). i mean who doesn't want the ship to be stormed by those crazy critters who'd give Reavers whats coming to them!?!?!?! or maybe they could then lure the aliens into a battle with the Reavers some how!!!!!! holy crap how sick would that be!

i started thinking more about this, then i went and looked at my star wars lego, then i looked in my dvd draw and got really excited (and it wasnt just coz of the porn movie i saw).

Aliens: like i already said

Star Wars: who doesn't want see Mal take on Luke Skywalker. it'd be the ultimate battle of whits, which Mal would win with his gun...

Terminator: Just coz it wood rock!

Another Reaver vs Allience star-cruiser battle like in the BDM, i mean if that wasnt one of the coolest scenes i dunno wot is.

Chuck Norris and Ace Ventura need to have cameos

The Alliance fed troops remind me of Star Ship Troopers, so chuck them in. We need more space battles, they made the Star Wars movies SO cool, so it can't hurt to put them in the best tv series ever concieved.
