Separated at birth?

Two starships, with raggle taggle crews, driven by market forces and implacable governments to the edges of civilised space. Two ships, with outdated technology and unpredictable stardrives. Two ships, caught up in capers, crimes and strange new situations...

Serenity and Dragonfall 5: separated at birth.

Dragonfall 5

(And why do I now seem to have the only Dragonfall 5 image on the web? Am I the only person who remembers Brian Earnshaw's wonderful children's SF?)

Explain? I don't know either...

The Serenity is the ship in Joss Whedon's TV SF. Dragonfall 5 is from the eponymous series of kids' SF novels.

I was just caught by the similarities.

Having found all my old Dragonfall 5 books in a cardboard box at the back of a cupboard in my parents, they've all been rehomed on my to-read bookshelf. Many happy memories.

Ah - Dragonfall 5 and the Empty Planet. That might actually be the first SF book I ever read...

Not 100% sure on that but it could be close.

Gosh, yes, Dragonfall 5. How could I have forgotten? Borrowed them from the (school?) library. Loved 'em.

It took me 5 episodes
Only started watching Firefly recently. It took me until the episode called "Safe", the one that starts with them shipping cattle, to twig the resemblance. I then did the obvious web search for Dragonfall 5.... and came up with "Dragon fall 5 and the space cowboys" with a picture of a cow on the front. Probably a subconscious link. :)

Didn't find your image on the web search though.
