What are Browncoats?
There are two kinds of Browncoats: Those within the fictional story of Firefly & those outside the story. We are the latter.
“Browncoat” is the name given to the Independent Faction who fought against the Alliance in a war that ends six years before the Firefly show begins. Not unlike the southern states during the Civil War, the Browncoats fought for sovereignty and the right to their own government, and like the South, they lost.
Browncoats refused to lay down and accept the choices that the Alliance left them. They continued to fight even when they knew it was a lost cause. We too have made our own path, and continue to fight for what we want, for what we feel was taken from us: Firefly. Loyal from the first time we saw it. Willing to go the extra mile to support it. Trying to find meaningful ways to put our fanaticism to good use.
