Story and Character Developments
Our story begins in the engine room, where Cmdr. Goddard and the guys are trying to improve the efficiency of the engines, and thereby get the crew home faster. While they are working, they talk about Cat's imaginary or invisible friend Suzee.cts
Cat mopes around the ship, upset about the loss of her invisible friend. Davenport, who ordinarily expresses scorn whenever Cat even mentions Suzee, is now concerned about Cat's mental state. Cat is suddenly unable to answer even relatively simple academic questions. Cat says that Suzee was the real engineering genius; Cat thinks she's nothing without Suzee.
Cat, in a desperate attempt to prove her worth, begins tinkering with the engines... and unintentionally puts the ship into a sort of time warp. Although she manages to normalize time within the ship relatively quickly, the ship is out of sync with the rest of the universe, causing the ship to overheat. Meanwhile, the thrusters are off-line and the ship is on a collision course with the comet.
Cat manages to figure out how to get the power they need the thrusters online again without Suzee's help, but the engines are cold and won't start. Suzee reappears in time to suggest that Rosie channel the heat she has sucked in into the engines, and this is enough to start the engines and get them away before the comet hits them. But the comet is destroyed.
Cat and Suzee are friends again... and promptly start arguing again!
