The Alliance have stepped up to taking people indulging in illegal activities and prodding around with their brains, just for the hell of it. After all, no one's gonna complain about missing people who have no real roots anyway, are they?
So they've taken my pilot, Zhen Xia (Nyx), and another couple of her crew, to a base that isn't all futuristic, but isn't all like the past either, and they've been prodding around in their brains.
They rather like the youngest crewmember's brains, so they leave her to wander around. She's even kinda brainwashed into thinking that it's all inevitable and she can't do anything about it.
Creepy thing is when Mal, Zoe, Jayne and Wash turn up. Turns out Nyx is one of Mal's past lovers (and even in my dream, here my brain was screaming "ONLY MARY SUES HAVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH CANON CHARACTERS!!!!!"), and he breaks down her sudden belief in the inevitability ("Mr. Anderson") of everything and decides to help her rescue her crew.
Then I woke up. :(
