Another nerdy flash sheet I am working on. Sci fi! Woooo!
Predator, facehugger, and Serenity?? How could I resist reblogging?!
MY HEAD ASPLODE OF THE DAY - Weyland-Yutani in Firefly
Note the logo at the top of this screen-capture from episode 1 of Firefly, where Mal is shooting down an aircraft in the battle of Serenity Valley. Turns out, Weyland-Yutani Corp. designed and supplied anti-aircraft guns to the Alliance!
Perhaps recalling Joss Whedon’s contribution to the Alien universe with his script for Alien: Resurrection, Firefly’s vis-effect guys threw in this subtle nod to Alien. And quite fitting, too, since we know that Weyland-Yutani was into weapons development.
