Nathan Fillion as Capt. Malcolm Reynolds in Firefly

Malcolm Reynolds is a character in the science fiction television series Firefly, played by actor Nathan Fillion. In the series, Reynolds is the captain of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity. He was brought up on a ranch on the planet Shadow. Later he volunteered for the Independent Faction and fought in the Unification War against the Alliance, in which time he gained the rank of sergeant. His loyal second-in-command Zoƫ was under his command at this time, and fought with him at the pivotal Battle of Serenity Valley. After the overwhelming defeat of the Independents he traveled to the more primitive distant planets, where he acquired his own ship. He is very protective of his crew.

On-screen information from "Serenity" - the movie version of Firefly - would suggest that Mal was given a brevet promotion to Captain during the Battle of Serenity Valley to take command of the ever increasing number of Independent Troops who were losing their officers at the hands of the Alliance. This would explain why, in one of the deleted scenes from the Firefly pilot, Mal is described as having commanded at least 2000 men.
