I thought it was the Swinetrek, and one of the crew is Dr. Strangepork.
Memory is a funny thing. I can't remember what I had for dinner yesterday,
but I still remember my locker combination from Jr. high.
From the "Swine Trek Compendium, 3rd edition":
Ship Registry Name Class
NPORK 1701 Swinetrek Battle Cruiser
NPORK 1701-A Swinepork Galaxy Class Cruiser
"Following the near-destruction of the Swinetrek by the Bork at the
battle of Wolf-blowyourhousedown-359, completion of the Galaxy-class
cruiser NPORK A1/57 was accelerated, she was renamed ''Swinepork', and
assigned the official registry number NPORK 1701-A. The crew of the Swinetrek
was reassigned to the Swinepork. The Swinetrek, too damaged to return to
battle-worthy status, was refitted with minimal life support capability and
her days as a garbage sow".
um, do they *really* eat cats? I ask this in all sincerity as I know
for a fact they used to eat shar-pei's(currently shar-pei's are illegal
Personally I think it's barbaric and damn near
canibilistic(psychologicaly speaking; think 4 legged loved ones). But
then again, I'm North American. I think nothing of devouring a cow :)
So do many Chinese, Sharpei dogs to be more specific. One of the
reasons for their near extinction was the fact that many were eaten.
Definitely gives new meaning to the term "Dog food". :-)

Just go into an open air butcher's market in any village in most
countries and look for the long tailed rabbits.
I've lived in six countries counting the USA and three of them
considered cats and dogs a regular item in the market. Not so much in
the big cities, but very definitely in the villages. Just reset your
viewpoint to having an annual income of $200 for a family of 6 or 8
and try to think of something you won't put in the food bowl (you
can't afford a table or individual bowls).
Let me rephrase.... I'm a spoiled North American :)
My point is that me being a North American my/some culture views
cats/dogs/wabbits(got one of them too) as friends/family.
I can't remember where but I'm fairly certain there's a culture(India?)
out there that actually worships cows. I bet they think we're total
heathens for our treatment of cows as just cattle.
