Okay … what strange cargo did the near-lightspeed, human-built, spaceship Cauchy tow behind it on its century-long flight? The 100-year flight is subjective ship time; due to time dilation, 1,500 years have passed on Earth when the Cauchy returns.

I’m guessing it probably wasn’t snacks. :D

Well, they probably had some snacks on board - Relativistic Crisps, etc. – but that's not the answer I'm looking for … :)

A wormhole gate. Interesting story, thanks for motivating me to read through the extract when my free time is too short to read full books.

Pirk, not Pirx, although there are some similarity between these characters.

There is a similar character in a popular SF series with almost the same name than Pirk. Guess who is him and I will give the next clue.

Yes, in the Star Wreck - In The Pirkinning free full movie. :)
These guys made a very good comedy without any high budget, which is an outstanding achievement.

Over to Cody!

To which sci-fi series did The Royal Martian Orchestra make a contribution?
