A-Z Challenge: B is for Browncoats

The Browncoat uniform

Aka the Independents, the Browncoats (known as such because they wore brown leather trenchcoats) fought against the Alliance six years before the time the show starts. Unfortunately, they lost. Defeated at the Battle of Serenity Valley, the brown-coated rebels lost their cause and had to bow down to the might of the Alliance. Some, however, didn’t take too kindly to being ground under the heel of what is a seemingly corrupt government, and would seek every opportunity to undermine that authority.

Browncoats is also the collective term for the Firefly fandom.

Yes, I’m a Browncoat and proud of it!

  1. Go Browncoats! It’s only fitting that fans of “Firefly” name themselves after the rebels who fought against corruption…especially given that they are classified as independents. You’re an independent thinker and I’m sure you would look cool in a trench coat. Heck, I’d welcome being among the rebel group, just for the privilege of being able to wear one and dress the part. Ha!
