I find it rather ironic that Firefly's diehard fans -- those who initiated petition after petition and campaign after campaign -- should name themselves 'Browncoats'.

The brown coat worn by Malcolm became a symbol of resistance against the Alliance government, the dominant power in the Firefly universe. It continues to survive on the outlying worlds, poor and poorly terraformed and thus of relatively little interest to the Alliance.

The Browncoats may be romantic as hell – but they lost.
