Sorry to be a wet blanket but I'm still negative about the idea. The thing about Firefly is the writing: witty dialogue, complex but endearing characters, often absurd situations. There's also a nice western-meets-space art direction. I just don't see that writing strength fitting into an MMORPG. At best, it will be an Everquest in space with some loose connections to Whedon's universe in the form of familiar names: Alliance, Tranquility and so on.
And that's at best. What are the chances this company will turn in something even that good? I know someone will raise EVE as an example of a small developer that succeeded but it's only
example (and I found EVE boooooring).
