Serenity of the Caribbean?

In the comments on that last "Firefly" post, Butch (is that the Butch?) mused about the similarities between Captain Jack and Captain Mal. They have a similar code of honor. For both of them, their ships symbolize freedom, and their only means to live life on their own terms.

Fun. This kind of comparison needs research. DVDs and rum at my place.

Are you the Butch who posts on the homeschooling boards, usually as just "Butch"? The one who unschools and lives on a farm?

No, that's not me.

Funny that I was thinking about that this morning except in the way of differences and what Jack might have to say about how Mal runs his ship. Now granted, I am probably more familiar with Jack's way of running a ship than I am Mal's considering I have only seen one or two episodes and the movie 2-3 times...but it is an interesting question. I dont think Jack would tolerate half the "insubordination" that is part of Mal's ship, but then Mal would probably be deemed more a merchant ship than a military one...and Jack had mixed feelings about the discipline on those. But of course, he would recognize that the purposes between the two are completely different things entirely.
