Digby's new spaceship is a spaceship that Nibbler's personal chauffeur — Digby — was in while on his search for the ship that, on the night of 31 December 1999, he used to land Nibbler on the rooftop of Applied Cryogenics. [7ACV23] Digby and Nibbler later took a cab back to their base on Vergon 6, where Digby's boss gave him the new ship. He then began going planet to planet looking for the old one.
In 3013, he was still looking. Due to him using the old ship's key fob, the new ship had constantly been emitting a deafening melody, which had destroyed a planet and was causing seisms on Earth. A musical response to the melody prompted the ship to land on Mount Shushmore, where Digby found Nibbler and the rest of the crew, as well as Nixon and Agnew. Fry helped him retrieve the old ship, and he then flew away in it.
- Digby's new spaceship is based on the spaceship in the 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
