If you haven't watched Firefly, you should.
I had about 6 versions of this comic, because I wasn't sure what bad (and somewhat humorous) decisions by private companies should be referenced. Other contenders were the making of the special edition Star Wars Trilogy and the cancellation of Arrested Development. I had to ask myself "What canceled TV show has the most rabid fans, who might in turn post this comic and draw more potential readers to my site?" Oh yes, I'm shamless.
