The people at Quantum Mechanix were invited to Universal Studios where they got to see the model used for the crash scene in "Serenity." While there were rumors about the movie using a simple styrofoam model, the real thing is about as far from that as you can get.

"'But it ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of flyin' is? Love. You can know all the math in the 'Verse, but take a boat in the air you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.' – Captain Malcolm Reynolds"
