The V-GINY is a death sphere created by the collision of an FCC V-Chip and the United States Air Force Flying Destiny. Following its creation, it began censoring indecent planets, such as Planet XXX, Poopiter, and that world that can't be mentioned in polite company, by imploding them (6ACV02). It would have destroyed Earth as well, but the intercourse between Zapp and Leela convinced it not to.
The V-GINY generates an unknown black matter that it uses to destroy planets. It appears to be able to manipulate the matter after firing it, as shown when used on Professor Farnsworth by creating a black bar to censor his nudity. The matter can be generated indefinitely and was used to implode planets.
- The name of the death sphere is a play on the word vagina.
- The V-GINY is a parody of V'Ger from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (itself similar to Nomad, see below) and the Death Star from the Star Wars original trilogy.
- The collision of two probes is a parody of Star Trek: The Original Series episode "The Changeling", where collision of Earthican and Alien probes produced a hybrid called Nomad, whose mission directives were combined to "sterilize imperfections".
