I believe those are from Firefly, the Game.

I saw them at either '18 or '19 Gencon when I walked by their booth.

It just struck me... a crew of only five implies the Serenity is a Small Craft, not a DropShip.  The "shuttles" are little more than Escape Pods with a little more fuel...

If you use the quirky and BT construction methods you are right. Those do not make any sense, but you are right.

yes, the minis are from Firefly the Game.

I mean, even the smallest of merc units who are in possession of a DropShip probably have far more personnel than the 9 crew members needed to operate a Leopard. Only a handful get names at a time, though.

Leopard DropShips are supposedly around the size of a real naval corvette or something, and those are staffed by far more than 9 people at a time. Even Sarna notes that the crew numbers given for DropShips like the Leopard aren't necessarily the only people on board at any given time; that number doesn't account for MechWarriors, Aerospace pilots, or support staff. It's just the minimum crew needed to make the ship work. They probably don't have the numbers real militaries would have - nothing in BTech does, apparently, for better or worse - but certainly each Leopard is carrying more than 9 people at a time.

Obey the quartermaster unless he is a 'ling
Cargo techs guard the station and find more stuff to take
But the boss is never satisfied until the station breaks...

Eh,

I'd rather have a Confederate, sure 10 people, but I got more cargo space and no ammo to go Boom!.

I am quite set for the Blackjack (Mal), Wolverine (Zoe) and experimental high tech Hatchetman counting as a Nightsky (River).

However I just noticed that I have a Thug as well as a Banshee, so now I am undecided on what kind of brute machine to give to Jayne.
