Man, I just mentioned how I don't like people who are already together being together here so that is a knock against Mal/River but the other team is just so blah to me unfortunately. And I love Firefly.
Peter Quill/Star-Lord is the captain of a pirate/bounty/hero ship. Harry Dresden is the commanding officer mainly because of his experience in a wide variety of fields. His main use will be in investigating what jobs/bounties to take and then will bring in an element of mystical support since he's a wizard. Thing is a pilot and brings a lot of muscle. He'll also be the main heart and conscience of the team. Samus Aran is a weapons and infiltration expert. She'll handle any combat planning along with Dresden, Thing, and Quill. Rey is a Jedi. And a pilot. And a physical jack-of-all-trades really. She'll fill a number of roles and be learning the ropes a lot. Peter Bishop is the medical and science officer. He'll basically be the brainy counter to Rey as a jack-of-all-trades; communication, doctor, technology, etc.
Rita Repulsa: They thought they could keep me in a hole forever? Rita Repulsa can penetrate any hole!
Repulsa: I've had all I can swallow from these children!
Repulsa: You two together are Earth's greatest agent and Space's greatest captain! You will lead my Monstrous Crew of Eeeeeeevil!
Leela: You call them your Crew of Evil?
Repulsa: My Monstrous Crew of EEEEEEEVIL!
Leela: That's pretty bad branding.
Repulsa: BEHOLD! My Director of Chaos, Marvin the Martian, and my Cyborg Destroyer, Wall-E! My Monstrous Crew of EEEEEEEVIL!
Archer: Uh, it's also false advertising.
Repulsa: How dare you speak to your Empress like that!
Archer: What? They're cute!
Voice:You callin' me cute, fancy man?
Archer and Leela turn around to face . . .
Repulsa: Oh, and meet my pilot, Stone Cold Steve Austin!
Austin: So you think me and my right hand men here are cute?
Austin: You think we're adorable?
Marvin: What?/Wall-E: Beep.
Austin: You think we're delightful and winsome little cuddle bears?
Austin: Well, all ol' Stone Cold's got to say is . . . that's awfully nice of ya! Now let's get this space Winnebago sumbitch rolling before I decide to drop you on that stack of dimes you call a neck!
Austin, Repulsa, Marvin and Wall-E all go into the Winnebago. Leela and Archer each hear a ping and pull out their phones
Leela: Well, the check cleared. So I guess I'm going. How about you?
Archer: Yeah, I guess--AHHH! AHHH! AHHH!
Archer: You have one eye! One giant eye!
Leela: How did you not notice that until now?
Archer: My eyes were distracted!
Leela: . . .
Archer: You know. Downward.
Leela: . . .
Archer: Look, I was staring at your tits for this entire conversation, can we just get in the Winnebago?
River Song is shown lying on a bed in her jail cell, looking rather bored.
RS (in voiceover): My name is Dr. River Song, an imprisoned time traveler. My past ensured that I had no future…at least until he came along. Although it wasn’t the he I was expecting.
Off screen voice: Dr. Song, you have a visitor.
Cut to Song standing in front of her cell talking to a man on the other side.
Jean-Luc Picard: I’m Jean-Luc Picard and I’ve been plucked from the time stream by the Time Masters for what I’m told is a very off the books mission. I said I needed a time travel expert and they sent me to you…as someone used to working off the books.
Song smiles wryly.
RS: Well, I’m not actually permitted to leave. How are you going to handle that?
JLP: I have someone working on it.
Cut to Gamora battling guards.
RS (in voiceover): That someone was Gamora, who certainly didn’t mind getting her hands dirty.
Cut to the three running from guards with laser fire whizzing around them.
RS: I’m guessing you have a way out of here.
JLP: Right there, the Waverider.
Cut to a shot of the Waverider on a landing pad.
RS (in voiceover): It certainly beat a phone box.
Cut to the Waverider whizzing through space while being chased by firing ships.
RS (in voiceover): In the escape the time circuits were damaged and swept us off to some sort of pocket dimension, where we found a tall drink of water in need of a ride.
The Waverider is shown in a black void with a figure floating up to it. Cut to him on the Waverider, extending his hand out with a smile.
Coop: Joe Cooper, but friends call me “Coop,” thanks for the lift.
Jump cut to later in the conversation.
Coop: Oh, I’m sure I can fly this thing, but I’m going to need a co-pilot and navigator. And I have just the guy in mind and from where we can find him, he’s probably in more need of a lift than I was.
Cut to Matthew Kowalski floating in space. He looks up as the Waverider is reflected in his helmet.
Cut to the five standing around a table.
JLP: In my estimation, I think all we need now is an engineer.
Gamora: I have heard of a man who might be able to help.
Cut to Tony Stark in his palatial penthouse with a drink.
TS: I don’t do space. I was there once, didn’t like it.
JLP: Mr. Stark, we have come a long way through time and space…
TS: Wait, your ship can travel through time.
RS: Yes, the technology is something even you have never dreamed of.
TS (calling over his shoulder): Pepper, honey, don’t wait up. I’m going for a walk.
RS (in voiceover): So, now we have a crew, but for what we don’t yet know. Picard isn’t talking, but I like the strong, silent type. I’m sure I can get it out of him…in time.
