\n* River was born a genius prodigy. The Alliance experiment turned her into a psychic. That's why she went crazy, because psychics do not occur naturally, so the human mind is not equipped to handle that ability, nor can they predict the nature and extent of her abilities. She and the other test subjects were 100% experimental, that is, they wanted to see what they could be made capable of first, and would figure out a use for them later (kinda like what the Shepherd suggested when he was talking about Xiang Yu). Remember that River was their "most successful" test subject, and she's certifiably batshit crazy. That doesn't exactly bode well for the condition (or, hell, the survival) of the other kids in what has to be an ''extremely'' expensive program. These assholes don't know what they'll do with her, they're still trying to figure out ''what'' she can do.

** I always felt the Reavers more Orc-like than Zombie-like, I don' get why most people seem to feel their like zombies or 28 Days Later infected. Orcs are very similar; cruel, sadistic, violent, get in berserker frenzy during battle, but other than that can forge weapons and have chains of command. So I see no reason why Reavers can't be similar.

Jayne has implied to Mal that Jayne would turn on Mal for a sufficient sum of money, and not a ludicrously large sum either. But when Jayne got an offer from Dobson that has to be high enough, he turned it down. Jayne is loyal to Mal and only keeps up this façade to ensure that Mal makes paying Jayne a priority and that people take pains to avoid pissing him off. He was willing to betray Simon and River because he didn't consider them crew.

#Earth is destroyed several times while Fry Sr. is [[HumanPopsicle frozen]], the first of which was the incentive to start colonizing space - his nephew Fry Jr. was the first man on Mars, and a few centuries later humanity has reached a new Solar System and established new planetary civilizations, with the latest scion being Wash, a lovable [[RedHeadedHero redheaded]] [UnfazedEveryman everyman]] in a RagtagBunchOfMisfits [[AC:InSpace!]].
#Having repaired its economy, humanity returns (post-''Firefly'') to Earth-That-Was to rebuild, and a descendant of the Fry line (a great''[[superscript:n]]''-nephew of Fry senior) named Hubert Farnsworth is still running an interplanetary courier business, though now legitimate, when he meets his great''[[superscript:n]]''-uncle, who true to the family line takes up residence as the lovable [[RedHeadedHero redheaded]] [[UnfazedEveryman everyman]] in a RagtagBunchOfMisfits [[AC:InSpace!]].

*** The cycles of history in BSG don't require every detail to be the same, just the general themes. more people and ships survived the fall of the 12 colonies than Kobol for example, and the 12 colonies cylons followed the fleet, unlike the 13th tribe of kobol, which went their own way. etc. and the Colonials abandoning their tech was meant to try and break the cycle. not to mention that the final scene of BSG is clearly meant to reflect modern day society on the cusp of making new cylon type beings.
*Given the similarities between the 'verse and the system the 12 colonies was in, with so many habitable worlds and moons, perhaps the 'Verse actually is the site of the 12 colonies, having laid fallow for nearly half a million years. Earth Humanity arrives, settles the habitable worlds (now free of the fallout), and terraforms the moons and less habitable worlds.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Pax doesn't permanently affect the target]]
Well, mostly not permanent. It's been mentioned that Reavers are somehow able think clearly and pilot spaceships and plan ambushes, but yet are savage mindless cannibals. If the effects of Pax wear off though, that could explain the different abilities. When going into battle, they dose up on Pax and turn into raging berserkers. Once it wears off and the Reavers are sated, they regain their mental faculties and go back to plan their next assault. The people on board the ship that the Serenity found didn't resist, making it likely that the Reavers released Pax onto the ship, and the one survivor is the only person who went Reaver from it. It's not clear what benefit they get from running with unshielded engines - perhaps it's just as simple as Pax damaging their ability to determine long-term consequences. It won't kill them immediately, so it's not worth worrying about.
