Which anime do I only vaguely remember?

I remember only a sliver. If I recall correctly, a ship traveled the galaxy kidnapping life forms and transforming them into spart parts for the ship. Is this enough information to identify it?

Does it have to be anime? There was an episode of Dr. Who like that (the one with Madame Pompadour)

"The Girl in the Fireplace" is the Who episode.

This sounds very similar to the 1953 short story Specialist - maybe that inspired it? Could help track it down, anyway.

No chance that it's Cowboy Bebop? I know they travelled the galaxy, tracking down people (and maybe lifeforms) for bounties. Not sure if any of them became part of the ship (although I have a vague recollection about some entity living in the hold).

OP has seriously misremembered Cowboy Bebop, if that's the one they're thinking of. :P
