The Crab ship was a ship employed by the Reavers. It was one of many which were in orbit in Reaver space around the ravaged planet Miranda. When the Crab ship approached Serenity and the Reavers inside prepared to deploy its grasping claws, Captain Malcolm Reynolds rotated his gun turret and blasted the Crab ship, destroying it. This enraged the nearby Reavers, who pursued Serenity as predicted, instigating the cataclysmic Universe battle.
Behind the scenesEdit
It is unspecified if this ship had been captured or constructed by the Reavers.
