The crew of a salvage trawler comes upon a hundred-year-old satellite and must determine if it is a piece of space junk or a valuable artifact.

Genre: Science Fiction


“From this far out, it looks to be about…a hundred or so years,” Jiang said. “Largely intact.”

Thurston turned to her. “And no one else has claimed it yet? That’s unlikely.”

“What should I do, boss?” the pilot asked.

Episode art description
: Digital drawing. View through the window of a spaceship. Support beams between the three main window panels angle away from center to edges of frame. At left a seated figure seen from behind and from shoulders up, right hand perched over a console with index finger out, as if prepared to press a button. At right, a standing figure seen in left profile from waist up, arms crossed and looking out at the object beyond the window.  The object is a satellite with two dishes connected to a boxy central structure and two receiver antennae.  Extending toward the satellite from somewhere out of right frame is a robotic arm.
