Whelp, looks like they are broke again. Is this temporarily?

I wouldn't say broke. They could sell the lobotomized Breath Weapon for scrap and end up with enough money to buy a fleet and pay everyone's wages for at least a normal human lifetime (pre-immortality). Intact they could probably make enough off the sale to buy a small planet as well. But as long as they don't want to do that (or when it inevitably gets destroyed too), money does matter again, sort of.

This is why you always diversify your investments.

They problably don't have mayonnaise jars or backyards in the future though.

And this is why Murtaugh is doing the best of all of them right now. She took a risk selling her shares and now owns the rent of a city plus whatever is still in that coupon book.

Honestly though they have employable skills and are immortal. As long as they don't lose their backups and galactic civilization doesn't end any point of being broke is only temporary. Admittedly both of those things are under contention, but since I doubt the comic is going to end with the destruction of civilization it will probably work out for at least some of them.

The individuals are a non-issue. The company going bankrupt is something that could happen

Are their backups, like their money, in the sole control of the crazy AI who just shot out their ship's brain? They might be a lot more mortal than they realized. And those people who are already down could very easily not come back.

They aren't though. We know Petey has copies of them too. Plus so far Chinook has gone out of her way to not kill them. So they are probably not in danger in that regard.

If anything she might shoot them and then restore them from backup somewhere safely under her control. Though I wouldn't put it past her to mind edit them in the process.

You want much worser? She's talking to the voices in her head right now. Voices belonging to mindfucked crew.
