YES PLEASE!!! I'm assuming it can't be part of the Kickstarter for licensing issues, but fan made would be OK right?

Strictly speaking, if you use the actual names and images from the show, no. Not even in a free fan production. Practically would they ever actually go after you for such a thing? Almost certainly not.. but letter of the law, nope.. much like fan fiction it's legal to make it for yourself but as soon as you give it to somebody else copyright becomes a problem.

Personally I like "Hotaru - The Japanese word for firefly."

Since Firefly uses Chinese, perhaps it should be Ningjing (Serenity)

I'm close to getting a USS Enterprise version working. Still trying to balance the actions, as wanted to include the ability to warp out of danger...

Preliminary design:

The USS Enterprise looks great. I have already printed this out to try. I believe it should be stasis beam, not "status" beam.

I actually created it a couple of months ago, before the game had its own page on BGG. I've yet to balance the actions (warping out of the area, for example, may just allow you to discard all external threats instead of having them put back in the threat pile; I also wasn't too happy about the photon torpedoes - I wanted them to be more powerful).

Anyway, this is somewhat off topic of the original request for a Firefly ship. As and when I get the USS Enterprise balanced, I'll post it as a fan variant to its own thread.

Thanks; I hadn't proof-read all the text yet, good catch.

Once you guys are happy with the design, I'll go over it in vector and turn it into a print and play board to match.

I played over the weekend and lost, but haven't had a chance to try again.

I love the thematic dice pairings on the ship, but the threat cards don't really make sense for a firefly universe and I kept feeling a weird dissonance about it. I did like having names for each of the dice (Kaylee fixes the engines! Mal and Zoe deal with external threats!)

so after even more games i still have a hard time with winning but i like the difficulty of it and keep playing one more game just to see if i can win.
