Default Silliness from Outer Space [Space]

What is the silliest thing that you have had come from outer space in your games? For my own part, it was a precursor civilization that produced gigantic space bears. They were TL11^ SM+10 biological spacecraft shaped like bears that were capable of sexual reproduction only while they were inhabited by sapient entities, so they kidnapped sapients from primitive planets to serve as their crew. Every 10,000 years or so, their migrations would bring them to Solve and they would raid the Earth to replace their crews.

The obligatory Giant Space Hamsters as the emergency power source for the ships.

In Confederation Space (see Tanya Huff), the Giant Space Hamsters control the government.

I briefly ran a game based on the r/HFY story "Billy Bob - Space Trucker." It is full of silliness.

The gnomes have invented Miniature Giant Space Hamsters to keep as pets.

I think that we can all agree that Spelljammer in general is the winner for "silliness from outer space", and move on to discussing second place.

EDIT: Can anyone link me to a discussion of doing Spelljammer in GURPS? In particular, what options/tweaks to use when building spelljamming vessels using Gurps:Spaceships.

There is a volume on weird and magical ships, with appropriate materials and magical power plants and engines.
4 maybe? Can't remember

To be fair, my giant space hamsters weren't in a Spelljammer game. Sight gag in my space pirate game.
