The Moby Dick was cruising at a comfortable clip and Caffrey's feet were up as he played air drums along with Keith Moon. Yin disrupted his bliss.
"Ahhh...folks. What, pray tell, is that?"
A spiraling tube of blue energy was winding its way from a singularity in space and moving toward The Moby Dick at an alarming rate of speed.
"I am afraid we will not be able to outrun it!" Angie cried.
"Some sort of worm hole I suppose," said Caffrey.
"A worm hole of the usual sort requires energy exceeding Planck levels.
The Moby Dick is picking up only a mild static. No more than would be produced by rubbing a foot on a shag carpet," Poe 33 explained.
Caffrey gave Poe 33 a strange glance as he tried to guess where in the endless light years of adventuring the android would have come across shag carpeting.
"What is this if not some sort of black hole?"
"It is a Mylaxic Eel," Poe 33 explained.
"Never heard of it," Yin admitted.
"Me neither. Angie girl. You find anything in your Zoological files on Mylaxic Eels?"
"Just a moment my sweet leather volume. Yes. Found. Mylaxic Eel. An extremely rare member of the genus electrophorus electricus gigantus, found only in comet rich regions of the Plethorian Sector. Its unique digestive system links two distinct points in time and space illustrating in astronomical grandeur the philosophy of never defecating where one resides."
"I could have told you that," Poe 33 mumbled.
