Is it an actual episode, or are the actors just sitting around musing about the good old days? I get the feeling it's the latter.

No not an episode, but there is talk of an animated series.

I did read somewhere that there is an anime series called Outlaw Star, that has more than just a small resemblance to Firefly

Outlaw Star was a great series! It came out years before Firefly. I've only seen the Firefly pilot, so I dunno about the comparison, but OS had a lot of magic and superpower-type action. The ships all had grappler arms so they would have martial-arts type battles in space. Also i think the OS cast was generally a lot younger than the Firefly cast, but maybe that's just a general anime thing. I do recommend it if you get a chance to see it.

I'm not suggesting any, malfeasance. Just read online somewhere about the similarities.

"Both series are space westerns.

Both series focus on a group of outlaw renegades who perform illegal acts.

Both series have a child-like engineer.

But the most striking is the comparison of River Tam and Melfina...

Both were secretly transported in a cargo box and revealed in a cliff-hanger in the first episode.

Both characters have unusual abilities that were given to them by the government"

I'll post the source if i can find it...

That is cool! Yeah, those similarities do make sense now that you mention them!
