Working for the Weekend

It’s finally Friday!

As much as we’re looking forward to the weekend, we doubt we’re as excited as Chloe here. Chloe is so loved she gets her own, personal omelette every Saturday! Do you think she’ll make one for me, too?

Thank you to her human, Kerstin, for sharing this adorable fluff-ball with us!

As another week of term passes, our crew has again succeeded in obtaining an exceptional exemplar for our Pet of the Week assignment.

Pup Star Trek beams in from a Class M planet full of strange purple fossils and elegant collars. His wide, trusting eyes and especially floppy ears have brought many members of the crew to exclaim, “Awww.” Initial readings suggest this life form has an affinity for Earth vegetables, snuggles, and being cute.

We owe a great debt of gratitude to Lieutenant Linden for providing us with this specimen. Perhaps other members of the crew will have knowledge of similarly fascinating creatures we might feature as the Pet of the Week. With any luck, those crew members will contact the bridge with their findings.

🖖 Live long and prosper through another week!

We’ll Miss You Lil!

Happy Friday Everyone!
