The Spacehog was a space-freighter (or an astro-freighter) in the New Earth System in the 25th century. Joe Bean was the captain and the pilot of the vessel. Ben Roth was formerly an engineer aboard the ship, but was replaced by his wife when he died. The Daleks tasked a group of Werelox to capture the ship, as part of a plan to turn New Earth into a Dalek breeding planet. (COMIC: Doctor Who and the Dogs of Doom)
