‘Give us a visual.’

Empty starscape blinked onto the screen. Distant stars like glitter. None of the expected confetti of asteroids. No planets or ships.

‘What is that?’ The captain pointed to a glitching pixel. ‘Enhance.’

The image locked onto the point. Zoomed.

‘Prrt?’ said the anomaly.

‘Is that … ?’

The glitching space cat rolled over and trotted across empty space toward the ship, tail quirked in a friendly greeting.
