Behind the scenesEdit
As described and shown in Still Flying, the prop used for the Lassiter had a storied history in Hollywood productions, going back as far as 1992. It was chosen by the Firefly propmaster from a rental house. The main body of the prop was constructed from an old flashlight, and the handle was apparently a solid aluminum foundry casting of a '60s plastic toy ray-gun. It was treated with effects to make it appear like an artifact for filming.
The prop also appeared in the seaQuest DSV episode "Abalon".
It was named after John Lasseter, a talented friend and collaborator of Joss Whedon.
