    You know, I took the exact same quiz and scored as a Reaver with Wash as a close second. That’s what I get for being a laid back, comic-relief horror movie freak with a zombie fetish.

  2. Steve Lytton/Deathblade_Penguin says:

    I got Shepard (65%).. that’s just so wrong for me… so so so wrong.

    Thanks Shamus for the link.. i often wondered how many comments on here you are capable of reading..

  3. Randolpho says:

    Me (top 3):
    Wash 85%
    Zoe 65%
    Jayne 50%

    My wife:
    Zoe 90%
    Kaylee 85%
    Wash 70%

  4. DaveJ says:

    Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic) 95%
    Derrial Book (Shepherd) 80%
    Jayne Cobb (Mercenary) 80%

    I’d rather cut out Book, but I am ok with hte others.

  5. Jeremiah says:

    Malcolm Reynolds (Captain) 65%
    Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic) 55%
    Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command) 50%
    Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic) 50%
    Alliance 50%

    Thought the three-way tie for 3rd was interesting.

  6. Brass says:

    Malcolm Reynolds (Captain) 60%
    Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command) 50%
    Jayne Cobb (Mercenary) 50%
    Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic) 50%

    Ditto on the 3-way tie.

    You love your significant other.

    … you also have a large piece of metal sticking out of your chest.

    Of course, I also got a dead guy. (Derrial Book 75%)

  9. Sauron says:

    Hey, GEBIV, put up an “OMGSPOILARZ” alert please…. okay, who am I kidding? Anyone reading this blog will have already seen Serenity or never see it.

  10. LethalSpoon says:

    Yay, I get to be Kaylee at 75% and Mal at 70%. Sweeeeet.

  11. Pumpkinetics says:

    Jayne! the man they called Jayne! (70%)

    Followed by Simon (50%)

  12. Lanthanide says:

    Hmm, I got quite different results from everyone else.

    Simon – 60%
    Zoe – 50%
    Inara/River – 35%
    Malcolm – 30%

    And at the bottom was 0 for reaver and Book.

  13. MiniTruk says:

    I got Jayne with an eighty percent, Book with sixty, then Zoe with fifty five.

  14. Carl the Bold says:

    My wife got Kaylee, and I think that’s just shiny! I got Wash, and what was his line to her? “Were I unmarried, I would take you in a manly way.” (Heart of Gold) Convenient that I’m married to *her*. :)

    SPOLIER ALERT:

    Kaylee is cute.

  15. Rustybadger says:

    You are Wash (Ship Pilot)

    Wash (Ship Pilot) 100%
    Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command) 95%
    Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic) 65%
    Malcolm Reynolds (Captain) 60%
    Jayne Cobb (Mercenary) 55%
    Derrial Book (Shepherd) 45%
    Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic) 45%
    Inara Serra (Companion) 45%
    River (Stowaway) 40%
    Alliance 20%
    A Reaver (Cannibal) 0%

    I’m a bit disappointed about not having any Reaver, but I had to be honest about not being a cannibal. Kinda happy about the 100% Wash though, cuz he totally rocks. My favourite Sci-fi characters are always the ones who get to fly, and my desk at work is covered in little toys (and some big ones too!) just like Wash’s consoles. No Dinosaurs, though.

    Shamus, glad to see you got the captcha working – let us know how it does on cutting down the spam. Of course, this post could be considered spam. Hmmm. “Mystery Text” – which is what 99% of the crap in my email inbox is!

    Now if there was a “Preview” option on WordPress’s commenting system, I wouldn’t have to be so paranoid about my html in comments!

  16. Gothmog says:

    Yay! I yam also a leaf on the wind!
    Wash 80%
    Kaylee and Simon 75%
    Book 60%

    Very cool. :D

  17. melchar says:

    I got Zoe at 85%
    -and- Wash at 85%
    [??]

    But it’s a cute Zoe picture.

  18. Patrick says:

    You scored as Nebuchadnezzar (The Matrix).

    You can change the world around you. You have a strong will and a high technical aptitude. Is it possible you are the one? Now if only Agent Smith would quit beating up your friends.

    Serenity (Firefly)

    81%

    Nebuchadnezzar (The Matrix)

    81%

  19. Patrick says:

    and, as a follow up….

    You scored as Seraph.

    You are Seraph, you can take me to her. But 1st you must appologize.

    Seraph

    75%

  20. Daniel says:

    Wash (Ship Pilot) 95%
    Malcolm Reynolds (Captain) 75%
    Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command) 75%
    Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic) 70%

    Wash is my favorite character too. I am silly and enjoy wearing Hawaiian shirts. Firfly to me is teh best show ever. Hmm too bad it is off the air after such a short run. Serenity was OK but I thought it lacked teh magic of the show.

  21. Rustybadger says:

    OK, one last time (this is the seventh try – my comments keep vanishing into the aether!) – hence the WTF.

    I am Wash, at 100%; Zoe at 95% (that’s what I get for being married, I guess); Kaylee at 65% and Mal at 60%. Very cool, since Wash was totally my favourite character anyhow (I always like the people who get to fly things). I am a smartass like him and also keep a collection of toys (not dinosaurs, though) on my desk at work.

    Shamus, glad to see you installed the captcha plugin. Just so’s ya know, I had to repost this comment twice thrice four five times because even though I got the same picture (d20), it apparently didn’t like the way I entered it. From now on I am copying my comments to clipboard before hitting submit to avoid having to re-enter the whole thing! Or maybe I should be less wordy – is your system automatically designating me as spam? Hmmm. “Mystery Text”

  22. Rustybadger says:

    I guess the problem was that I copy/pasted the results into my comment. There must be some crappy formatting that WP is rejecting. Cool. And I got D20 every single time!

  23. Rustybadger says:

    I am an ID10T – please delete all those duplicate comments, Shamus?

  25. Kristin says:

    Simon: 80.
    Kaylee: 65.
    Mal: 60.
    Book: 60.

    I would have characterized myself as a blend between Kaylee and Simon, so that’s actually not a surprise.

  26. Skeeve the Impossible says:

    WHY an I not surprised. For all of you out there that don’t know (which is most of you) Shamus LOOKS like the leaf on the wind as well.
    All of us at the D&D group think so

  27. Liz says:

    My top results:

    Malcolm Reynolds (Captain) 70%
    River (Stowaway) 70%

    I love how I am somehow simulateously those 2 characters. So I’m, like, psycho Mal?

  28. Deoxy says:

    I wish they would put a link to “100%” for each of the possible choices, just to see how the characters are judged.

    Since a couple of people got 100% Wash, I guess they could at least tell us what the “right” answers are for that…

  29. ryanlb says:

    Wash (Ship Pilot) – 80%
    Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command) – 70%
    Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic) – 65%
    Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic) – 60%
    Derrial Book (Shepherd) – 55%

    Reaver – 25% – probably because I wish violence on chronically stupid people

    Cool. I rather liked Serenity, I should really watch Firefly one of these days. I have a small collection of Star Wars figures and Star Trek vehicles on my desk at work, and a MUCH larger collection at home.

  30. Miral says:

    Malcolm Reynolds (Captain) – 50%
    Derrial Book (Shepherd) – 50%
    Alliance – 45%
    Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic) – 45%
    Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command) – 40%
    Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic) – 40%
    Jayne Cobb (Mercenary) – 35%
    River (Stowaway) – 35%
    Wash (Ship Pilot) – 30%
    A Reaver (Cannibal) – 20%
    Inara Serra (Companion) – 5%

    This actually makes little sense to me. Especially Book. Maybe I just suck at answering these sorts of quizzes ;)

  31. The Big Z says:

    Deoxy on these sort of quizes its just a matter of of the degree of your answer that determines your %. For example this is what i got for answering yes to every question.

  32. Rolld20 says:

    Um, should I be worried that I scored a 30% match for Reaver?
    At least I’m 0% Jayne.

    (My max was Zoe; no surprise there, I’m comfortable being a reliable second-in-command.)
