A special class of space vessel that obviously failed. It was designed to defend all of our bases against Cats, and only for great justice, but, since Cats took all of our bases, all space vessels of type Zig are obviously obsolete.

shortened form of Ziggurat, "a temple tower of the ancient Mesopotamian valley and Iran, having the form of a terraced pyramid of successively receding stories or levels."

The word is used in a contemporary context to refer to the structure proposed for construction in Dubai, set to house 1.1 million citizens.
