The Begins at Home was a greenfreight vessel which was built on Mendavici Seven. Over the years, the ship was bought and sold countless times until it was old and decrepit.
In 2011, the Begins at Home was owned by Harfolg, who used it to transport junk from planet to planet. The Objet D'Oom was in the ship's junkheap. The Dog Pirates attacked the ship, killing all of its crew, but were unable to steal the Objet D'Oom because it had already been taken by Terrance.
