Drabble: Upstaged (Firefly/seaQuest DSV)

Jan 08, 2011 07:05

Because clearly my entire reason for watching Firefly was so I could write River into weird crossovers, here's one more. Someone over at fandom_stocking wanted River/Lucas, and even though I can't ship them seriously of course I had to write something, because: River and seaQuest!

Ha! Love it. I know we talked about it, so the Darwin thing shouldn't be a surprise, but the last line still made me bust out the biggest grin. :)

Hee! That says a lot, right, that you knew it was coming and it still worked? *g*

Hee!

This makes me want to track down Seaquest DVDs. They must exist, right?

They do! The first two seasons, anyway; I don't think the 3rd season has ever been released, although it is available to stream on Netflix.

I have a big ol' soft spot for this show because it was my first TV love and the first thing I was ever fannish about, although that was long before I ran across "formal" fandom.

Glad you enjoyed.

I enjoyed this even though I've never seen Seaquest! But you're starting to tempt me...

Hah ha. Thank you! I should warn you that it is not, in fact, very good. Characters are two-dimensional at best (and there are few enough with even two dimensions!), the female characters get progressively weaker as the show goes on, plot and character continuity is a fool's dream (seriously, half the reason I was so impressed by BtVS the first time through was how, in contrast to this show, Joss never throws any elements away), and the majority of the plots are SF of the hokeyist kind. Think of it as a poor man's TNG, but in the near future and on a submarine.

OTOH, it has Roy Schieder (think Jaws), they do occasionally make real efforts to get their science right, and the female characters in S1 are both quite fun. Also, S3 makes a noteworthy attempt to be serious SF (though with mixed results).

Basically, I love it for the nostalgia value. However, if you did ever decide to watch, I'd be happy to squee with you over the squee-worthy bits. :)
