Every Captain needs a good ship.  Mal had Serenity, Han the Millennium Falcon, Willy the Wonkatania.  All the really good spacefaring adventurers get a spiffy ship with a cool name, and the mooks get the “Twin-Pod Cloud Car.”  If you’re gonna save the galaxy from the evil Prime Minister Zurg, you gotta travel in style, even if your car looks like a trashcan lid with a periscope.  (Sorry, Solo, but somebody had to say it.)  Since your humble MS-QOTD deals entirely in fantasy, with the occasional side-trip to incoherence, it seems that we may have ourselves today’s hyper-drive enabled query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) always liked the sound of “The Epoch Weasel”, though the United Starship “Jessie Spano” is also a serious contender, asking: What are you gonna call YOUR awesome starship?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. much like another roguish yet goofy and barely-competent space pirate, i’ll go the childhood crush route and call mine The Winona. no clue what mine would look like though….maybe something a little bigger than an X-Wing fighter or Spike Spiegel’s Swordfish, but a good deal smaller than Serenity. a cockpit, a bunk space/bathroom, and cargo hold are probably all i need.

  2. I will Kiss him and love him and squeeze him and hug him and call him “George”.
    and because the original viper from Battlestar Galactica is too small to live in I would go with the space winnebeggo from “SpaceBalls”
