The crew of Serenity, as they fled from the Alliance which had been summoned by the mole Lawrence Dobson, encountered a Trans-U spacecraft which was operating without core containment and operated by Reavers. Because Malcolm Reynolds did not alter course to flee, Serenity passed directly beneath the Trans-U and the Reavers were not tempted to immediately seize them. However they eventually turned around and tracked the crew to Whitefall. As the Trans-U Reaver crew prepared to launch a Magnetic Grappler to board Serenity, Wash initiated a "crazy Ivan" maneuver and escaped from the vessel, which probably crashed.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The name of this spacecraft is likely a reference to the Trans-Utopian from Starhunter, another sci-fi television show.
