There is a really interesting Firefly panel going on this week at the San Diego Comic-Con, and while we wish we could be in the packed hall to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the show, the Science Channel has fans covered.

Science Channel is shooting the entire panel and wrapping it with one-on-one interviews, behind the scenes material, and other bits of goodness, and turning it into a one hour documentary called Browncoats Unite.

“Firefly is a landmark work of science fiction and a favorite with our viewers,” said Debbie Myers, general manager and executive vp of Science. “Ever since it premiered on Science, fans have asked us to do something special to mark its 10-year anniversary. With this signature celebration, punctuated by Browncoats Unite, we will connect the minds behind this classic franchise with its legions of passionate fans.”

The documentary will air Sunday, November 11, 2012 as part of an all day Firefly marathon.

    I know that the show will never be brought back anytime soon, but I do hope they announce a monthly dark horse series. The past several mini-series that were released aren’t enough for my firefly fix.

    The title of this post got my hopes WAY too freaking high, and then the text of it dashed them to the floor and demolished them.

      There are certain things that you can’t help but get excited about, even if you know deep in your heart that they aren’t to be.

    Dang, I fell for the link bait title! If all I get is an hour reunion show though, I’ll take it.

    Oh man…now I’m sad/happy/bi-polar. I was really excited to maybe see a continuation of Firefly but a behind the scenes wouldn’t be terrible. I could live with that….*runs off too watch Firefly reruns*
