In order to make bring back FireFly, the internet has launched HelpNathanBuyFirefly.com, which offers the following plan of action:

  1. Create a limited partnership to be owned by the fans. Anyone who invests in the company has a voice.
  2. The purpose of this partnership will be to enable what everyone has been hoping for all these years: the production and distribution of more of our favorite show.
  3. Create a system through which anyone can invest in the organization. If we can’t raise enough money, or if we can’t acquire the rights we’re after, we return the remaining funds. No hassle, no questions, no worries.
  4. Look for a few good Browncoats to serve as a board for oversight.
