Find Yourself In The Verse

[via ComicMix]

Most of us around here really like Joss Whedon’s Firefly series. But one thing that always bugged me was that I never had a good handle on how The Verse looked, physically. Considering an apparent lack of FTL drives, multiple star systems seemed right out, with all the ‘planets’ seemingly existing in one system. Well, according to the Firefly Ship Works, The Verse does indeed cover multiple star systems, and they have created a wonderful, full color map of The Verse that details all the planets and locations from Whedon’s Firefly universe. Just check out part of the map below:

This is just part of the map, check out their webpage for more images. I really, really like the way this map has been presented. The colors are fabulous and seem to fit the show very well, as does their choice of font and use of Chinese characters. The only quibble I have, having not seen the full size map nor a really high res image, is that the map may be informationaly dense. But dang, it sure looks sweet. If you’re going to be at the Creation Serenity Convention in Burbank next week, you can buy your own map: $27 for a fold-out roadmap version or $35 for hand rolled poster version, which would look mighty nice in an office cube. I’m just sayin’…

  1. Oh. My. Word.

    That is awfully shiny, ain’t it?  I’ve spent an embarrassing number of hours trying to work out the ‘verse in my head, taking into account the methods of travel, ships used, etc and never really could parse it out.  This map is made of serious Want :)
