Synopsis

Capt. Quark is sent to clean up outer space---literally---with the United Galaxy Sanitation Patrol in a sci-fi spoof that isn't garbage, but is definitely odd. The crew includes a half-man, half-vegetable science officer; a first officer with both gender characteristics; two pilots, one a clone of the other. But each believe the other is the clone.
