Crew of the Walden

 

(L-R: Lacey, Loki, Captain O.B., Stern, Billy, Jesse)

When Serenity ran out of gas, the crew of the S.S. Walden showed up just off a salvage mission from Ito moon. You might be forgiven to think they were angels of mercy, unless you were at the receiving end of Captain O.B.’s pistol! After being run off by Captain Reynolds, the S.S. Walden continued to trawl the border moons in search of salvage or other, less savoury, prey. Lacey is the first mate, while his husband Loki is the muscle. Stern flies the Walden, with Jesse as co-pilot, while Billy keeps her running.

The Semi-Canon Crews series follows the Motley Crew ongoing. The Firefly comics continue to be worthwhile, but I feel like they are focusing too strongly on the original crew of Serenity, who could honestly use a rest. The ‘Verse is a rich place, with many wonderful corners to explore. Why not dive in to the adventures of these semi-canon crews?

Going down memory lane as I rebuild my drawing library after a catastrophic hard drive crash. Uploading it here also helps ensure it won’t happen again! This was a D&D party from about ten years ago. I was just starting to shift from doing OoTs-style stick figures (Order of the Stick, by Rich Burlew) to hand-drawing.

This adventuring party never came up with a name.
