Homeric Voyager?

A couple of days ago, Steven Chapman (formerly 'Daddy Warblogs') wrote this little squib:

What the fuck is "meatspace"? Sounds like a parallel dimension, made entirely of meat. "Captain, we're entering meatspace now." "Very good, Number One. Bring the meat-deflectors online."

Thank you Glenn Reynolds for making me smile until my sides split.

Surely Meatspace is like Fluidic Space: a realm where the laws of nature are quite different from those we know. But Meatspace is much more useful: that's where the starship Voyager goes when supplies run low in the Delta Quadrant. Deflectors are not needed, just a tractor beam to haul in whole Ribeye Asteroids and a shuttle craft to mine the Porterhouse Moons of planet Lambchop. Also a simple hose to suck up bits of the Gravy Nebula. Of course, they always proceed at flank speed while doing this.
