    Well, it certainly was faster and cheaper to put together…and if it gets to its destination and back, that will certainly be better!

    Maybe they’ll run into the Muppets – remember “Pigs in Space”? Captain Link Hogthrob, First Mate Piggy, and Dr. Julius Strangepork leading a crew of pigs aboard the Swinetrek.

    They had better watch out for the R. U. Sirius, because Brewster might think the box is his and take away their ship.

    I like the way Pig’s helmet says “Hi, my name is Pig.” Is he planning to make contact with some friendly aliens?Also, Pig’s helmet doesn’t appear to be connected to an air supply. How does he breath in space?

    I’m suprised Rat isn’t with them. I would think he’d like to find the beer alien’s home planet… So would I…

    This isn’t “rocket science”—when it’s rockitt science, its much easier to get a shipp into space.

    They are surprisingly deep into space. Even beyond lunar orbit. Past L2 point, even.

    This feels like a rip-off of the arc where Calvin and Hobbes went to Mars back in ’88.
