Can't Stop The Signal!

So, got up early today.  Couldn't get back to sleep.  Got up and turned on the Idiot Box.  USA Network was running Serenity... is calling for a Blue Gloves Assault on Universal Studios, to call for another movie in the Firefly/Serenity 'verse.  What they--the Browncoats, that is--say they're looking for is a trilogy, that is, a second movie to form a trilogy with the original series and the first movie.  whether a second  movie would fill in all the holes, I don't know. 

One mark of a successful science speculative fiction franchise is that it gets people to speculating about the whys and the wherefores, not to mention what else is (or was) going on.  Which leads to "fanfic", fan(-written) fiction.  Which maddens some.  Heck, even the "officially authorized", non-fanfic (IOW, commercially produced) spin-offs can be a problem.  (Star Trek has produced so much that it's hard to say what should be regarded as "canonical" anymore, especially since Roddenberry lost and regained interest in what was going on in the "Trek-verse" several times over time.)

Hmm, is it a coincidence that most, if not all, Wookie Suits1 are brown coats2...?
1.  I've used the term "Wookie Suiter" for Ron Paul supporter/hard-corps Libertarian before, perhaps I should point out that I first heard--or read--the term on Tamara's blog, but that the origin is explained in comments, here.  
Except I just discovered realized remembered, yeah, that's it, I just remembered this post.
2. Fur coats, granted, but still...
