OK, here's the scoop

Q: You also made a considerable contribution to the art direction side of the show, including much of the work on the Satellite of Love models. What was your premise as you worked on them? How did the "dog bone" shape come about? Were you thinking in terms of how a real spaceship might look? Or were you just hoping to create something that looked neat?
A: The shape of the S.O.L. came about because the Demon Dogs that had attacked the ship in an early episode were attracted to it because it looked like a bone. I had very little time to build the first one so I used foam core because it was light and easy to work with. I was influenced by Ron Cobb's design on ALIEN and the little round ship in FIRST MEN IN THE MOON. The models for the film gave me a chance to get more detailed, especially on the eight foot. Again they were made out of foam core with a lot of stuff glued to them. Basically I wanted them to look neat.

From "20 Questions" interview with Trace Beaulieu, one of the original cast members of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and originator of the roles of Crow T. Robot and Dr. Clayton Forrester.
