Not trying to be a hater. I think the concept is funny. I've used memes like this many times when arguing with a noob on the interweb.
I just want to better understand when something is okay and when it is a no-no.
I have the same question. It seems arbitrary at times. For my monopoly design, I took special care not to mention the ships by name, rather, by class/type (firefly happens to be both the class and name of the show, unforunately). In addition to avoiding potential rejection, I think it adds to the aesthetic, as well as punches up the nerd factor a bit.
But yeah, it confuses me too.
