“That volcano was supposed to have consumed everything, including itself. But we’re seeing something. Something is giving off enough of an energy signature for several terrestrial and even a few orbital detectors to register the signal.”

Episode art description
: Digital drawing. The dark silhouettes of four people standing before a passage or opening inside a cave. Foreground, two partial figures from shoulders up at either edge of the frame. Mid-ground, two figures seen from mid-thigh up. The figure at left is holding up a flashlight. The light illuminates the stone walls of a cave. Above the figure at right flies at butterfly. To make the overall image square, the rectangular drawing is set in front of a glowing circle against a black background to give the illusion of a flashlight glow, whose arc is seen above and below the drawing.
