I love all the Easter eggs, and trying to identify who did which audio clip in the game. I thought it would be fun to start a thread to discuss! I’ve found 7 Firefly references. Has anyone found more?
PJ confirmed that Odran is from the Softwire books. Has anyone found any other Softwire references?
I’m very new to the convention world, and my sci-fi knowledge is confined to Firefly, Star Trek TOS, Galaxy Quest, and now The Softwire series. What sci-fi shows/films/books have you seen represented in the game?
We know that the characters from Con Man: The Series are voiced and visually represented by the cast, but there are other voices/likenesses in the game as well. I love hiring PJ to help with Promo, and Joss Whedon’s “Dave” does a great job of emptying the trash! Does anyone else love assigning Inara to clean the toilets?? I never thought she was right for Mal.
I swear PJ also voices Bob, the main Security Guard. Any thoughts? PJ, you can wait for us to discuss before confirming or denying 🙂 I saw an interview online with Nathan and Alan by the guy whose likeness is used for Bob, but I can’t remember his name. Does anyone recognize him? Also, who are the non-Firefly maintenance staff?
This is the place to share info on the Easter eggs you’ve found, and any game trivia you know regarding voices, likenesses, whatever!

The details in the themed booths contain a lot of Easter eggs. There are the obvious ones, like the Stargate and the Tardis in the sci-fi booths, and the less obvious ones like the ‘Me Android’ sign (instead of ‘I Robot’). We have seen a lot of Walking Dead references in the horror booths (including the ‘Dead Inside’ doors and the prison towers) and Game of Thrones references in the fantasy booths (including an Iron Throne).
I also presume the ‘Captain Hammertoe’ posters with Jack moore on them are a reference to Nathan’s role as Captain Hammer.
The main security guard is Kevin Smith, who is a staple at cons.

My favorite Firefly reference is Nathan Fiillion in Wash’s “sick” Hawaiian shirt as the lost driver.
I’m wondering if anyone has figured out the “You put the C and C in Sci-fi” audio bit that Wray says often. C & C Music Factory? Command and Conquer? I’m curious.

I love the Browncoat-clad Alan and “sick” Hawaiian Shirt-clad Nathan too!!! And it did take me a really long time, but I must have been playing in public with earbuds and finally realized Alan is saying “You put the Sci (see) and Fi (fee) in Sci-Fi!!! Omigosh, it was driving me a bit crazy, too!!!

And a very belated thanks, Jun, for your observations!!! I’m not familiar with a lot of the references so I wouldn’t have caught them, but since your post I have made a point of zooming in and checking out the details of the various booths! Also, I will now remember Kevin Smith’s name! Thanks for providing that info!

Glad to help! I realized there were others after I made that post, such as Gizmo from Gremlins (in an Ewok outfit?) in one of the sci-fi booths and a Cthulhu-like creature in a kilt standing next to him (although shouldn’t he be in the horror booth?). There are Game of Thrones dragon eggs in one of the fantasy booths. In one of the horror booths, you can see a bloody chainsaw (reference to Evil Dead?) and a floating cube that seems familiar… I think maybe Hellraiser? I’m not familiar with that franchise.
I don’t recognize much in the superhero booths, although the characters there look like generic mashups.
