A wave was a real time or recorded audio-visual transmission sent over the Cortex.
Inara Serra often used waves to communicate with her clientele from within her shuttle on Serenity. Hoban Washburne would often call her back to the ship via wave. Despite this, waves are rarely mentioned further out from the core and could possibly be a service supplied for the more wealthy. However, Inara was seen answering a distress signal via wave, which was sent by Nandi from a Rim Planet.
- Google's Apache Wave name originates from the system of electronic communication used in Firefly.
