War Stories - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: During the firefight on Niska's ship, when Simon sees a guard coming and says to Sheppherd Book, "Book, we, uh-", a dead guard on the floor moves his legs as the guard that Simon saw fires his weapon. (00:37:10)


War Stories - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In Niska's office, behind his desk, there is a door that slides open to a small torture chamber. In "War Stories," there is a small staircase that leads into this torture chamber behind the door. However, in "The Train Job" (the first time we see this chamber) there is no staircase.


War Stories - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Malcolm Reynolds is being tortured, after Zoë takes Wash away, the villain cuts off Malcolm's left ear. The shot changes, and then returns to Malcolm, showing the other side of his face. Now the visible ear, the right one, is missing. The shot changes to the front, and now his left ear is missing again.

Our Mrs. Reynolds - S1-E3

Mal: Now, you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell... But if your hand touches metal, I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you.

Show generally

Question: I've never seen the show myself, but I was wondering what kind of a name "Inara Serra" is. I'm assuming Inara is of Portuguese origin, but mostly because the actress was born in Brazil. Can someone please help me with this?

Answer: Inara is actually Arabic in origin; it means "ray of light" or alternatively "heaven sent". Serra, on the other hand, is Portuguese and means "mountain range" - derived from the same word in Latin, where it means 'saw' (as in the cutting implement, which a mountain range might resemble, rather than the act of seeing).
