The cult classic series Firefly is often touted as one of the best Sci-Fi shows in the history of TV, and the most disappointing title to have been cancelled before it had the chance to shine. This project - headed by Joss Whedon - gave us such a unique approach to the genre, as it took the best elements of the Wild West and brought them to space.
Firefly worked because of its grand concepts and fascinating world-building, but the glue that held the series together and made it a cult favourite were the exceedingly compelling cast members. The Serenity crew were a tightly bound collection of travellers, mercenaries and fugitives who grew to become a family.
While most shows have clear fan-favourites and weaker roles, this series did not, as every single character was lorded by sections of the fan-base, making it one of the most formidable casts to analyse. However, although it's a difficult challenge, it is not impossible, as this list will strive to place the crew in a hierarchy based on their charm, contribution to the show and popularity.
