On the good ship Znutar, the multi-racial crew has very few weapons with which to fight the awful green things that have invaded. The crew, who really should have known better than to pick up that strange green rock, is often in such desperate straits that they will attempt to hurt the cute little alien menace by feeding it cans of Zgwortz, in hopes that the protein-based potted-food product will at least keep the aliens from eating them. Sometimes, it even works.
Maybe we could placate EDB with this stuff . . .
