Fans of "Firefly" should flock to this in-depth look at a mega Serenity Lego spaceship built from 70,000 Legos.

Nearly 10 years after the debut of the sci-fi television show "Firefly" (and the follow-up 2005 movie "Serenity"), fans still express great interest in the series despite its short run.

Mild-mannered "Firefly" fan (and mechanical engineer) Adrian Drake decided to build the ultimate homage to the fallen show: a 70,000-piece Lego replica of the Serenity spaceship.

You'll probably "ooh" and "aah" at the insane detail within the 135-pound Lego vehicle, which sports a full interior that includes a bridge, cargo bay, dining room, personal rooms, and other areas. The entire Serenity build process took Drake an estimated 475 hours over the course of 21 months.

In the gallery below, Crave explores a few angles of the ship, some keen shots of the interior, pictures from the construction process, and a set of custom minifigures featuring the main characters from the series. Somewhere, "Firefly" creator Joss Whedon is surely smirking.
