I think everyone knows what a Mobius Strip looks like...

As far as I remember my days at school there was also a German zoologist
called Karl August Mobius (1825 - 1908). With his studies about oysters he
founded the theory of the community of life (hope I translated it right).

After all, this seems to fit perfectly because Mobius _is_ a planet where
different sorts of animals live together in peace and in balance with
nature (not to mention that the name of the planet was choosen way before
the episode 'Blast To The Past'.)

Just a suggestion

You get what anyone gets. You get a lifetime.
