Firefly stars Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk need your help to get them back into a spaceship, so they’ve launched a campaign on Indiegogo in order to raise money for a new comedy web series titled 'Con Man', about actors from a sci-fi show which was cancelled too soon. They already have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, with more guest stars being announced throughout the campaign. Therefore, it is legitimate to ask the question: in which episode will Summer Glau appear?
Here's how Tudyk described the show - which will be available on Vimeo On Demand - to Entertainment Weekly:
It’s about the convention world,” says Tudyk, who is also the show’s creator, writer, and director. “My character, Wray Nerely, was on a science fiction show called Spectrum, that was canceled too soon, and now he goes to conventions, to sign head shots, and meet fans, and do panels. Nathan’s character, Jack Moore, who was the captain of the spaceship on Spectrum, has gone on to incredible action-hero stardom, like Matt Damon. My character is frustrated with his situation and frustrated by Jack’s stardom. We follow Wray’s story as he goes to the conventions and does video game voiceovers and we are going to populate it with sci-fi actors and people that you will find at conventions. Zany hi-jinks ensue!
The two Firefly stars were initially asking for $425,000 to be able to fund the first three episodes, but have raised over $1,125,000 less than two days after their campaign went live and it is reasonable to assume that they will reach soon $1,750,000 and fund the entire season 1, i.e. 12 episodes. Which means twelve opportunities to have Summer make an appearance on the show.

If you want to see Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk back on a spaceship, and hopefully Summer Glau, you can contribute to 'Con Man' , and/or get more information, on Indiegogo. The deadline is set for April 10th.
