Well, I'm Kaylee, and I'm a mechanic on a ship, Firefly class, her name's Serenity. Our cap'n, his name's Mal Reynolds, he's real nice. And we got some real nice folk here. Oh, me, right, well I grew up on a little backwater moon, and my Daddy let me help him fix things. Engines and workin's, they just talk t'me, y'know? Serenity, she lets me know what needs fixin'. And I like her, she's a good ship, none better.
Lessee, sometimes all our jobs aren't exactly legal-like, but we never do anything real bad. Jayne does lotsa the shootin', an' Mal an' Zoe. Simon's our doctor, and he's real sweet. River's his little sister, and she's a little feng le, but she's real sweet. We had Shepard Book and Inara for a while - Inara was an actual companion - but they both left. Inara's flyin' with us a bit again, but just for now. Shepard Book... he died. The Alliance killed him, and everybody in the settlement he lived in. Ain't right. And Reavers, they got Wash. I miss him lots. Zoe misses him more, but they was married, so that's natural like. Cap'n's teaching River how to fly, and she's real good at it. Got a natural talent, like me, only with flyin', and not fixin' things.
So that's me. I like pretty things, too, even though I fix things. Sometimes it's nice bein' pretty.
