  • In the overhead shot of the train, just before Serenity comes into the shot, the wheels on the train that are F/X'd out elsewhere can be seen in the shadow next to the track.
    • Can someone accually confirm this? I looked at it on the DVD, and I can't see any wheel shadows (or rather what may be wheel shadows could be something else). Also the commentary says these where 100% CGI shots, and I doubt that a CGI train would have wheels or even wheel shadows. --RoToRa 07:15, 13 Sep 2005 (EDT)
  • What the heck does the opening narration mean? So, they found a new solar system and hundreds of new earths? So are they all in one solar system, or what?
    • Well, in the other opening narration read by Nathan Fillion (as seen on the main Firefly page), Mal says that they terraformed a whole galaxy of new Earths. So who knows. --Hawkman 07:35, 13 Sep 2005 (EDT)
      • Which suggests that someone took JW aside and taught him a little astronomy.... Vaguedisclaimer 17:35, 3 Oct 2005 (EDT)
  • Maybe this will change in future episodes, but all the planets we see in this episode (including the intro and the opening credits) are dusty and dry and kinda desert-like. But we're told in the opening narration they were all terraformed. So why'd they go around and create a bunch of deserts? (some didn't find this too unusual, thinking maybe the process was limited to desert creation).
    • I know the whole information on the page is copied from including these two facts, but (ignoring any copyright problems) the language should be a bit more "matter-of-fact" IMHO. And in any case I think anything copied from there should be updated. In these two cases for example, it should be mentioned that the DVD version doesn't have the narration, and in fact the "inner planets" aren't deserts. --RoToRa 07:15, 13 Sep 2005 (EDT)
