Goofs

  • During the attempt to reprogram the waste disposal unit, the first shot of the computer screen shows a Microsoft Windows desktop.
  • When Simon gives Jayne a shot, you can see the fake needle retract into the syringe.
  • The port side shuttle is visible in Serenity's port (left) docking bay when both shuttles have left the ship.
  • When Mal and Saffron are running from the authorities, they leave the Bellerophon Estates through a door which uses a crash bar to exit. However, when the guards arrive to that door, it has changed color and the door hardware is now a lever-style handle.
  • After the fight in the beginning with Saffron, Reynolds' nosebleed disappears and reappears between shots.

Trivia--In the theater scene, depicted on the screen in the background as shadow art, are ships leaving the planet Earth and arriving at various planets.
