Serenity

Packed one big box (probably too big, might need to split into two smaller ones) with much of the junk from my desk. I'll sort it in detail at the new house. Now I just want it packed. Spent that packing time, plus a little end of the day work time watching an episode of Battlestar Galactica, specifically "The Magnificent Warriors". It's the one where they need new seed, so they go to a planet and try to trade for it, get robbed, and Starbuck ends up as the town constable by winning a hand of Pyramid. Ultimately, the big problem is the Boorays, who have turned into scavengers because their leader is a big lazy pig. Starbuck makes a deal with them and that leader becomes the new town constable, Starbuck becomes the only man to survive being town constable, and they Galactica gets the seed it needs. It all takes place in a town called Serenity. I wonder if Joss Whedon was a Battlestar Galactica fan as a kid, or if the name of this little wild west town in a valley is pure coicidence?
