Trivia: Nathan Fillion would hide snacks and drinks on-set (usually in crevices, drawers or just off camera), so they would be readily at hand in-between takes. After learning the series was canceled, he alleges that he purposely hid a half-finished drink in one of the pieces of the set, and never retrieved it, to see if anyone would eventually stumble onto it. He reportedly does not know what became of it, so there's a chance it's still in the set-piece in storage somewhere.

Trivia: Morena Baccarin Inara was originally planned to have a storyline in which it was revealed she was suffering a terminal illness. It is unknown whether or not she would have been permanently killed-off, as the series was canceled before the storyline could begin.

Trivia: Creator Joss Whedon, who is infamous for both killing off his characters and also having characters in relationships "break up", stated that if the series went ahead as planned, Wash and Zoe would have been the only couple in one of his series that would last from the start to the end, because he thought they were perfect together and shouldn't separate.

Trivia: If the show wasn't canceled, the contents of the mysterious syringe Inara has in the pilot would have been revealed. It was set to contain a very potent strand of an artificially created STD - non-fatal to Inara, but fatal to anyone who had sexual contact with her within a certain span of time after she injected it. In a planned storyline, Inara would inject herself with it shortly before being captured by a Reaver ship. After the crew of the Firefly breaks onto the Reaver ship to rescue her, they'd find every single Reaver dead, implying that Inara had been assaulted in some way and/or raped by every single one of them. This would then lead into an ongoing character-arc regarding her depression over the assault.

Trivia: Co-star Summer Glau reportedly flubbed a key line during filming one day at the end of a rather long take, and in frustration, one of the other cast-members (both annoyed but also amused by the flub) exclaimed "Summer!" Everyone on-set found this exclamation so funny, that they would all scream "Summer!" whenever they flubbed a line. Glau was reportedly annoyed by this at first, but later began to find it amusing like the others.

Trivia: Joss Whedon had intended for the series to last seven seasons, and had even come up with vague plans for the various main storylines before the series was canceled. The follow-up movie "Serenity" features a modified and shortened version of what would have been a longer and more-detailed storyline that resolved her character's backstory and character-arc.

Trivia: Since 2009, Nathan Fillion has reunited with at least four of the show's cast members on Castle: Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres, Summer Glau, and Richard Burgi.
